Here things went completely wrong for the Swedish army - twice.
Bengt Steinar Nordbakk was driving along Highway 74 when he became aware of a military vehicle from Sweden laying overturned in the ditch in Limandvika in Lierne.
- - They are trying as best they can to take Nord-Trøndelag, says Nordbakk laughingly to Adresseavisen.
According to Nordbakk, the Swedish Armed Forces are stationed in Gäddede, but the vehicle was heading to Namdalen where the NATO exercise "Cold Response 'is taking place these days.
A few hours later, and three kilometers further away, yet another accident occured. This time a bus with Swedish military personnel drove off the road and crashed in a ditch.
- Our sweet brothers came too far out on the edge and then the bus went off the road. Now they run around loading another vehicle, says Nordbakk, who was also nearby when this accident occurred.
- They constantly try to take over Nord-Trøndelag, but it doesn't go very fast, Nordbakk chuckles.
And that explains why Sweden has chosen to remain a neutral country. And why Norway easily won its independency in 1814, after some short battles with the Swedes, who were sent out to fight the Norwegians on behalf of the Danish king.
The Joint Headquarters's spokesman Brynjar Stordal, says there are no reports of injuries after the crashes.
