Swiss troops marches into tiny Liechtenstein


Caesar

Recommended Posts

"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 from the neutral country wandered 2 kilometers (more than 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."

The headquarters of The Knights of Malta in Rome has diplomatic relations with several nations. And at 1/5th of an acre and 9 residents is concidered the smallest country with diplomatic relations.

AS A CITIZEN OF THE GREAT, PROUD AND SOVEREIGN STATE OF LICHTENSTEIN I SPEAK FOR MY NATION WHEN I SAY THAT WE ARE UTTERLY OUTRAGED BY THIS CALLOUS, UNPROVOKED AND BLOODY ATTACK AGAINST THE PEACE-LOVING PEOPLE OF LICHTENSTEIN. WE CANNOT TOLERATE SUCH AN INSULT AT THE HANDS OF THE FRANCO-HUNIC HORDES OF SWITZERLAND!

FOR TOO LONG WE HAVE TOLERATED THEIR OPPRESIVE YOLK, THE TIME FOR ACTION HAS COME: A CALL TO ARMS OH SONS OF LICHTENSTEIN! WAR HAS COME TO US -WE SHALL BURY THE SWISS UNDER THEIR VULGAR MOUNTAINS AND WAVE OUR PROUD FLAG IN THEIR BURNT CITIES AMIDST THE RUINS OF THEIR FINE HIGH-END WATCHES, HOLEY CHEESES, AND HIGH YIELD YET LAISSEZ-FAIRE BANKING PRACTICES!!!

GOD IS WITH US LICHTENSTEIN!

Not like they could do anything about this "invasion" either...

Military - note: defense is the responsibility of Switzerland

There must be somthing they can do.

With a bit over 33,000 people if the Swiss really wanted the chunk of land, there wouldn't be much they could really do.

Though that link said a lot of workers go to Germany for work so perhaps the Germans would get involved?

I doubt it'll ever go that far. It's just like any other nation having an accident. Not like it was the Korean or Israeli border that was accidently crossed. The US has done it to Mexico plenty of times and Mexico returns the favor.

Lichtenstein cannot defend against hordes of cheese filled soldiers wielding precisely made pocket knives with built in scissors and toothpicks. Avoid the bloodshed and give up now.

There must be something to handle this Swiss. perhaps the U.N. can put a stop to this aggression. someone needs to teach Switzerland how the world deals with bullys. they should be pulled out of the ground like a weed and thrown into the trash. may other nation always remember this act of of the evil Swiss!!!
