*** Switzerland and Lichtenstein on the Brink of War ! ***
* Britain leaving EU with "Brexit". Anxieties run high in Europe. *
Excuse me. Sorry to disturb. Did anybody notice perchance an errant post of mine (incomplete) with the above title? It seems to have vanished into cyberspace whilst I was writing/editing, probably due to my fat-fingered typing. (All of those hot-keys and shift functions and whatnot, no doubt.)
Anyway, the article probably got posted on some website or another.
Has anybody come across it? If so, please advice.
Items mentioned in the article are:
*Switzerland has the world's 30th largest army...
* Lichtensteins “army” of 80 men
was disbanded after the Austro-Prussian War of 1866... They do have a police force.
* Lichtenstein's alliance with Monaco and Andorra means the predicted tank force is raised from 3 to 7...
* Andora pledged their airplane and both their helicopters...
*Monaco promised all their tanks
- meaning none, since their two tanks
are in a WW2 museum (plaster copies)...
*Main point of contention: Seems to be that the Swiss are known to pee down the river Rhine and Liechtensteiners are really upset at that. Maybe something about coffee tasting funny
. Reports are unclear at this time.
(Monaco and Andora just want to be near the center of things for a change. Maybe grab a couple of selfies. Both countries are awaiting a response from the Kardashians, invited as Honorary Guests. Any one of them. Really. Doesn't matter which one. Contact Elisenda at the Permanent Mission of Andorra, UN Plaza, New York

*As a complete aside, Lichtenstein is the only country in the world where the Swiss are used as "Immigrant Labour".
If you're interested, I'll post the final article here on CF once I've confirmed all details. PM me. Meanwhile, if you're curious about the half dozen or so times that Swizerland invaded Lichtenstein - the last one being only back in 2007 - I've given a link. (Quote from govt official in Vaduz: “It’s not like they stormed over here with attack helicopters or something".)
BTW There's another "missing" article from my files. Probably stolen by foreign intelligence operatives. (Or WikiLeaks. Or maybe one of the US Presidential candidates looking for an edge on foreign affairs.) Article Title: Russia
and Belarus Frontier Guards Trade
Shots at border gas pipeline pumping station. (Anonymous sources report.) Moscow claims western press exagerates incident. Minsk insists Moscow rep's brought inferior vodka for the jello-shooters.
If anybody happens to spot either article posted somewhere please advise. TY
