Swiss Imperialism On the Rise

It seems that the Swiss are bored of their centuries old neutrality( and pocketing loot from both sides in a conflict) and starring in the background of Bollywood duet songs. Now they want to have some real fun.

Swiss “accidentally” invade Liechtenstein

ZURICH, Switzerland – What began as a routine training exercise almost ended in an embarrassing diplomatic incident after a company of Swiss soldiers got lost at night and marched into neighboring Liechtenstein.

According to Swiss daily Blick, the 170 infantry soldiers wandered just over a mile across an unmarked border into the tiny principality early Thursday before realizing their mistake and turning back.

A spokesman for the Swiss army confirmed the story but said that there were unlikely to be any serious repercussions for the mistaken invasion.

“We’ve spoken to the authorities in Liechtenstein and it’s not a problem,” Daniel Reist told The Associated Press.

And the Liechtensteinians are being good dhimmis.

Officials in Liechtenstein also played down the incident.Interior ministry spokesman Markus Amman said nobody in Liechtenstein had even noticed the soldiers, who were carrying assault rifles but no ammunition. “It’s not like they stormed over here with attack helicopters or something,” he said.

Liechtenstein, which has about 34,000 inhabitants and is slightly smaller than Washington DC, doesn’t have an army.

  1. I read about that, lol Liechtenstein not having an army probably had something to do with the country playing down the incident:) Hmm..can you see the Swiss media offering obnoxious sums to the ‘youngest’ infantry soldier to give an account for his ordeal ..aka the brit sailor saga..heh. Man, the brits are so full of crap, honestly.
