    Icelandic Military

    Hej alla glada islänningar!

    I have always wondered how the Icelandic people think about their military situation, in other words how they feel about not having a "real" armed force.

    If I were Icelandic I wouldn't want to be apart of NATO at all and I would certainly want an armed forces of my own. Granted that Iceland's population of 300 000 is not very much manpower, but a type of conscription/militia system and an armed population can do wonders to deter any potential invader!

    So what do you, Íslendingar, think about your defensive capabilities?

    basically the situation is satisfactory like it is. dont agree with you about nato. dont see anything negative about it. it provides as good a defence as possible against some one wanting to invade. I am glad thou that usa closed its base here and left because there was no need for it and I think we should just keep the land for our selves. dont remember noticing them much out side their base though. some politicians wanted them to stay only because of the money that it generated wich is a selfish and immature position to take.
    the former justice minister björn bjarnason was interested in creating a little army and they started Varnamálastofnun or institute for defence but when the economy went bad they decided not to spend money on it and put it down. my aunt who is a lawyer was briefly employed for them.

    but basically there is very little need for us to build a military

    Article 5 states that an attack against any NATO country is an attack against them all, hence any single NATO country tied up in any bullshit war automatically ties your country into it. If you were a part of NATO prior to September 11th, 2001 then you would have been at war with Iraq. It's basically a pointless alliance with no regional basis.

    U.S. F-15s deployed to Iceland

    Demonstrating its commitment to a "free" and "secure" Europe, the United States deployed 12 F-15C Eagles and approximately 350 airmen to Iceland and the Netherlands on Friday, the Air Force announced.

    U.S. aircraft units from the 131st Fighter Squadron at Barnes Air National Guard Base in Massachusetts and the 194th Fighter Squadron at Fresno Air National Guard Base in California will support NATO air surveillance missions in Iceland and conduct flying training in the Netherlands.

    The F-15s are not the only package of American fighters being sent to Europe in an effort to deter further Russian aggression in the region.
    In February, the U.S. said it will send six F-15s to Finland as part of

    Operation Atlantic Resolve, which the United States initiated in 2014 to reassure NATO allies after Russian military intervention in Ukraine. These aircraft are scheduled to deploy next month.

    Although it maintains a small coast guard force, Iceland is the only country in NATO that does not have a military.

    Anglo-Saxons are forbidden the same level of racial consciousness of other groups (even amongst Whites).

    While our many accomplishments are forgotten, there is no end of blaming Anglo-Saxons for the problems and inadequacies of the world (White & non-white alike).

    Iceland should adopt the Swiss model, where every man gets a period of training and must keep an assault rifle in his home as part of the militia. There's no need for such a small nation to have a standing army, but a citizen army is ideal.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.

    NATO has outlived it's usefulness (stopping Communism), now it's just a tool to serve US interests and divide Russia from the rest of Europe (the US can't stand the idea of a multi-polar world).
    No one is going to invade Iceland. Period. They can literally have no military and it doesn't matter. Maybe a coast guard and civil-defense force, but that's about all they need.

    Equally all this paranoia about the security of the Baltic states is unfounded when one considers the demographic reasons for Crimea's annexation i.e. Crimea is overwhelmingly Russian (85%-90%), the Baltic States are not. Therefore no annexation of a nation like Iceland or the Baltics could ever be justified to the Russian people and it's allies, and Putin would be finished.

    Europe's military's (including Russia's) need to stop all this geopolitical d**k-measuring and unite against Europe's real enemy: mass-immigration. Europe's military's are easily capable of uniting to stop the current 'refugee' (illegal migrant) invasion, but sadly it's politicians are not.

    Although I like this proposal, it is not sufficient. Switzerland can afford their situation because they have their financial power to rely on. If another country wants to adopt the military model of Switzerland, there has to be some substition for not having a proper army. What would Iceland do if a real army tries to conquer the island? Its geographical position makes the island very important strategically speaking and therefor very interesting for larger powers.

    Iceland could not defend itself from wholesale attack. Its population is just too small. It can deter such predation, though, if any attacker knows he would face "a rifle behind every blade of grass," as Yamamoto famously said about the prospects of attacking America. This is the deterrent for attacking Switzerland as well. It's just not worth it.

    Not every branch of Iceland's military has to be professional. A professional navy and mobile coastal defence should suffice + a small but capable cadre of officers who would lead a volunteer militia in times of crisis. And rapid deployment should be high on the agenda of Iceland's warrior class.
