On April 8, 2014, Swedish combat forces stormed the HQ of German submarine builder Thyssen’s offices in Sweden and walked away with blueprints for the next generation submarine A26.

Immediately after the event, the head of security at Thyssen was fired.

Aside one or two initial reports about what in effect was an armed robbery, a blanket of silence has been put over the affair in Sweden.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the world, a retired Swedish Rear Admiral from deep within the bowels of Sweden’s “deep state” the Swedish Defence Material Administration, visited an Australian think-tank conference and made a brief statement including a mystifying reference to Free Masonic symbol Phoenix Bird.
