Can't Norway, Harry's model socialistic country, with one of the highest
living standards, rich with oil and free health care afford to train and
equip their own Marines?

You do know that Norway's population is just over 5 million people.
I'm Sure they to the best they can with that limitation.

They are there for training purposes. Do you actually think 350 or 700
US Marines could hold off the Russians?

Norway is a founding member of NATO and a strong supporter of it. It
trains and crosstrains with NATO forces from other countries, such as
the 'Mericans. Life just isn't as complicated as these ignorant righties
want it to be.

One would think so. But maybe they're just scared.
