#7 Norway back in the day gained independence from Sweden and made it stick. Against an airborne or seaborne attack their geography turns from an advantage to a fatal flaw -- like the Greeks they can be carved into bite sized junks at the attacker's pleasure.
The takeaway: their governing elite has spent all of that North Sea Oil money on bread and circuses...

#11 Folks doubting the intestinal fortitude of the Norwegian soldier have perhaps forgotten the 5th SS Viking Panzer Division. What has happened since then? Western Socialists don't much care for national preservation these days

#12 ...The Norwegian armed forces aren't supposed to defend the country. They're intended to show just enough manpower to make sure the Americans defend Norway.
