Welcome to the free jihad training, all we'll need are your biometric data, several photographs, and nevermind this tiny implant.

No, they are not smarter than we think, they simply believe there is no harm in opening all of their house to their invited roommates. Assimilation into the host society is what many espouse (myself for one) -- the problem is these people are tribal cunts who long for the days of cave-dwelling and open-range sheep brothels -- they won't assimilate. None of what the Swedes have done with regards to these refugees has been a good idea.

But I'm sure they think they are smarter than we think they are, and smarter than we are. I mean, they only have various millennia to have refined their society -- surely all of that time and experience makes them wiser....

Couldn't the Swedes have started the language training with something a little more mundane...oh, like...using toilet paper, skiing, ABBA-worship, semla eating, etc...

those could also have the effect of convincing the migrants to go elsewhere

Reading the original article it is not a 'sniper' course as others have pointed out training for biathlon which is a big sport in Sweden.

The newspaper has issued a clarification today and reading it using google translate:
http://www.allehanda.se/angermanland...ng-i-solleftea

it appears that this was a magazine article about a FIELD DAY at school in which students were allowed to try biathlon back in 2013. This article was then changed a few times on foreign extremist websites.

From what I can decipher there were threats made against them back then and the club broke off working with the schools. However, they are as a club still working with immigrant youth and some have become officials on the shooting range.

Interesting dilemma for them. It IS a big sport over there.

Came back from vacation to find that a body was found down the road at the local pond under suspicious circumstances.

Autopsy pending.

WTF.

I used being on "vacation" once as an alibi too.

Found this a nice summation of European intelligence:

or "None of us is as dumb as all of us".
