That's an entirely false statement. Sweden is and was a neutral nation for sure, but being neutral is not "sitting on the fence", in fact it is a statement just as big as joining a war mongering alliance or another war mongering alliance. But if there is any credibility to your chosen name, you would know that Sweden was during the cold war rather close to NATO. The Swedish army was completely focused on protecting the borders from an attack from the EAST. The USSR was the big threat and after the fall of the USSR and communist eastern Europe, the Swedish army has been dismantled into almost nothing. We should likely be thankful that Sweden actually remained neutral during the cold war as the nation joining NATO officially would likely had resulted in a communist occupied Finland with another closely watched border between these two countries.
