because it's Sweden: their politicians are so into PC and so afraid of anyone accusing them of not treating minorities and/or women at least as well as white men that they seem to treat those two groups preferentially just in case, it seems ours are getting there as well.

also here is a pic of Finnish Jaegers doing their thing

well now that I look at this pic again, I am puzzled: that helmet and that coat are yelling "special forces!" at me, but that Rk 95TP suggests otherwise (our special forces mostly use 5.56x45mm NATO -chambered rifles such as G36, SIG-55X plus some AR -variant I can't remember.)

Maybe he's just really high-speed. I've seen non-SOF guys before buy SOF-type gear and wear it to training.

well having that coat would take some explaining to his superiors, considering M05 camo isn't available for sale (and as such can't be bought legally), and I'm fairly certain same goes for the helmet

How do you feel about the EU and have your feelings changed since last years mass immigration became a major issue? What's the attitude in general about the EU in Finland? More or less so support?

Why does it seem that many political parties are either radically left or radically right to us Americans?

The last 15 years saw most Western European countries dominated by hard left leaning, and in some cases outright socialist parties. Now the radical right seems to be gaining more and more traction especially in countries like Germany France Britain and the U.K. Is Finland the same and if so why are the politics so radical?

About EU: some are against EU because all effects they ever see in media are negative/any positive effects are immediately forgotten or they don't care about those because those don't affect their own lives (at least as far as they know), some support EU because of any number of reasons, and most are somewhere in the middle trying to figure out if pros outweight the cons or vice versa, the mass immigration seems to have mostly increased the number of people in the anti-immigration camp.

About political parties: the right is gaining support/making more noise than in the past because of perceived failure of EU & the growing anti-immigration sentiment fueled by islamophobia, while the radical left seems to be mostly leftovers from Cold War, or at least that's how it is here in Finland. I haven't noticed this domination by "hard left leaning" parties that you mentioned, maybe it's a matter of perspective, after all by European standards even Obama is perceived as being far-right (someone should seriously compile an objective list of definitions for things like "left-wing", "right-wing", "socialist", "fascist", "capitalist" etc. because each and every one of those is used incorrectly more often than not)...

but honestly, I am not the right guy to ask about why the right is X or left is Y, ten years ago I counted myself being in center-left, but since then I have decided to stop trying to place myself on that spectrum as I find my opinions all over it, ranging from some "far-right" opinions on certain matters to decidedly "socialist" opinions on other matters, with a good amount of opinions that don't fit in either camp that people are trying to force to fit into one camp or the other anyway based on which of the two happens to fit their own agenda on any given day...

I was very uncomfortable on public transportation in France and Spain. Finland seems like my kind of place.

impossible to figure out, at least for me.

btw have you watched that movie I linked?

a chapter from "Fänrik Ståls sägner", an epic poem about the Finnish war of 1808-1809, after the battle of Lapua general Georg Carl von Döbeln was inspecting his troops when he saw a dirty man wearing rags covered in blood, von Döbeln addressed the man, asking "Why are you so reclusive now, you weren't so when I saw you charging the battery in front of everyone else, what is your name?"

The man replied: "What name I got upon my babtism, no-one asked, mostly people have called me Ruffian"

von Döbeln replied: "Good! throw your name at the faces of those who speak ill and be without worries, but where is your home, on what do you rely?"

The man gestured at the road and replied: "That has been my home, and this I rely on!", shaking his fist.

von Döbeln replied: "Nothing wrong about your home, and your protection is good as well, but how have you made your living? Petty theft or perhaps highway robbery?"

Man replied: "If I was a highwayman I'd have coin in my pocket, and if I was a beggar my clothes still wouldn't be so ragged."

von Döbeln's eyes were lit and he shouted: "Captain Schantz, hear me! Of those that fell today, who was the most courageous in this company? The jacket and the musket of that man bring here! The name and the relic of a hero, this man now inherits!"

The items belonging to number 15, Stolt were brought and von Döbeln said "bloody is that jacket, brave the man who dares to take it, but your own clothes are no less bloody. Put it on and take your place in the ranks with your brothers, and if anyone calls you Ruffian again, silence them with your sword!"

Number 15, Stolt put on the uniform and took his place in the ranks, happier than he had ever been, thinking that if he were to die in battle the next day, he'd die a happy man.

That's some pretty motivating stuff right there.

Can you link the movie in this thread? I cannot facebook at work so I can't find it.

Just watched it tonight. A bit disjointed during the first half, and not much of a climax, it just kind of ended which felt a bit odd. But the action was good and seeing the STuGs and tanks in action was awesome. Those were all real vehicles right? Not mock-ups?

Question, what's the meaning of the nickname "Sotka" they had for the T-34s?

yeah they were all real, and "Sotka" is an old word for duck, the most popular theory is that the side silhouette of a T-34 resembles a swimming duck, another story claims it was originally an inside joke; the guy who captured the first T-34 had been on a steam ship named "Sotka" before the war, so when he drove the tank to his unit's base his friends christened the tank Sotka.

Not sure if this has been asked before, but what kind of vehicles do people drive in Finland? Gas is more than 2X as expensive as it is in the USA, but you guys have the kind of Hoth weather that favors SUVs and trucks over more efficient cars.

we tend to drive "normal" cars such as Toyota Corolla etc. though SUVs aren't out of place either, as of now people tend to prefer fuel-efficient cars with low CO2 emissions (our motor vehicle tax is heavily dependent on the emissions of teh vehicle, the emissions are inspected annually and if they are above certain model-specific level, the vehicle doesn't pass the inspection & is illegal to drive until it can pass the inspection), so European and Japanese/Korean makes are more common than others, except for FIAT, those seem to rot away after just one winter (which reminds me, as much as people speak ill of Russian cars, AvtoVAZ seems to have managed to take an original FIAT model and make it survive harsh winters)...

it is one part documentary and one part a movie; most characters have a real person behind them (such as sergeant Lehväslaiho who has written countless novels about the war, some are fictitious while at least two are heavily based on his own experiences during the war), the movie ends like that because it marks the beginning of a series of defensive victories for Finland, starting with the movie's namesake; the battle of Ihantala, also knows as "Miracle of Ihantala", which is the biggest battle in history of Northern Europe. Until the battle the Finnish Army had been retreating almost non-stop and the morale was at all times low, and with the furious battle ending in what has to be considered a Finnish victory the Army regained its will to fight, I guess the makers of the movie expected the viewers to be at least some-what familiar with the events that took place before and after the events depicted in the movie.

An aspect of the battle which was not brought up in the movie is that apparently the sound of the massive barrage of the Soviet artillery taking place near Viipuri could be heard all the way in Mannerheim's HQ in Mikkeli.

What is this "Soldiers of Odin" business I'm reading about. I ask here because you know, I found it on the net so it has to be true right? Some sort of Finnish version of the Guardian Angels is what I got from reading so far.

depends on who you ask, some say they are racists patrolling the streets with baseball bats looking for immigrants who are causing trouble while they themselves say they make no distinction between natives and immigrants, and that they only resort to violence in self-defence etc. They have no chapter where I live so I don't know who's telling the truth, if anyone.
