Not only that, but original prosecutor laughed the woman out of his office as her story obviously didn't meet even Swedish standards. Then "suddenly" prosecutor was changed in a couple of weeks and current situation started.

Could be that it had nothing to do with it. Or it could be that what diplomatic cables stated about Sweden and its leading politicians were dead on.

Swedes tried this. They really did.

In about two decades, they went from Palme to Bildt. US has extreme amount of ability to unseat politicians they do not like and replace them with those they do when they need it. Results were very visible in everything ranging from Sweden's eroded political neutrality to things like incarceration of people US didn't like (i.e. Pirate Bay case, "inappropriate sexual conduct" charges against Assange). From most vocally neutral to most Finlandized country in Europe in just a couple of decades.

Believe me when I say this, you do not want the evil juggernaut that is US security and intelligence apparatus turning on politicians in your country. They will not last long.

As a point of reference, if you think that "most of US media is on the left", you are so far on the right end of the spectrum from European point of view that expression and practice of many of your ideas has been outlawed in much of Europe after our last bout with national socialism.
