A landmark commission formed in early 2017 is laying the groundwork to revitalize Sweden's "total defense" concept, which would see the country ready to use all aspects of Swedish life to push back an invasion from an unspecified foreign adversary -- but one that sounds suspiciously like Europe's biggest bogeyman in Moscow. In an exclusive interview with Defense News during a recent visit to Washington, Defence Commission head Bjorn von Sydow and commission secretariat chief Tommy Akesson explained their vision for revitalizing Sweden's defense infrastructure -- one they believe must enable the country to hold out against a major invasion for three months. "When we say civil defense, we mean all civil activities in society, including medical care, including shelters of course, including private companies, everything. Local communities and all their obligations," Akesson said. "It's a total mobilization of the country and planning for how to put all forces in society in the direction of solving, in the worst case, a military attack."
