 Sweden braces for a “civil war” in no-go zones

Is Sweden preparing its citizens for a war with Russia…or is it really preparing citizens for what will be an inevitable clash with gangs located in the no-go zones around the country?

Prime Minister Stefan Lofven said that Sweden would do whatever it takes, including sending in the army, to end the wave of gang violence situated in the no-go zones around the country.

Sweden’s murder rate has been relatively low over the years, but an uncontrolled influx of migrants has created sprawling no-zones where the local police are powerless.

Lofven noted, after the party leadership discussion in parliament:

“It’s not my first action to put in a military, but I’m prepared to do what it takes to ensure that the seriously organized crime goes away.”

“But it is also obvious that there are social problems. Last year 300 shootings occurred, 40 people were killed. The new year has begun with new launches. We see criminals with total lack of respect for human life, it’s a terrible development I’m determined to turn around.”
