"The Swiss make the best soldiers, most reliable, most dependable" - - Napoleon.
The Swiss and their ways. Thanks to the Lew Rockwell web site we have this latest info courtesy of
"What's Behind the Swiss Gearing Up for Major Unrest Through Out Europe?"
That Swiss military preparing for possible unrest the European Community and the Union "dissolving" presumably from economic pressures fostering a societal breakdown that will result in widespread chaos and a movement of people on a massive and uncontrollable scale, threatening the serenity, order and prosperity of the Swiss in their mountain fastness.
I had seen vague references to this sort of preparedness on other web sites, but this description is more complete and accurate.
A Greek monetary collapse followed by an Italian monetary collapse, followed by an Irish monetary collapes and the whole EU goes down the tubes in record time, every man [nation] for themselves.
"Do the Swiss know something the rest of us don’t?"
"Ueli Maurer, the Swiss defense minister, has been making coy statements about the European crisis getting ugly – as in really ugly, like needing armed troops to deal with it."
"the Swiss can call up over 200,000 trained troops"
The Swiss military having a small cadre of professional full-time soldiers well trained and prepared backed up by a very much larger contingent of reservists, also well trained and doing refresher training on a regular basis, all prepared and ready for all and any contingencies. DEFENSE of the Swiss homeland against outside aggression whatever form that aggression may assume.
"Swiss military exercises in September , called STABILO DUE, were based on EU instability getting out of hand . . . they certainly don’t want EU problems spilling over into their peaceful little country. That the Swiss military is adding four new military police battalions to the army, to be spread around the country, indicates that the threat they have in mind is more disorder and chaos than actual invasion."
The Swiss living among and surrounded by their beloved mountains have the ability to stop and thwart invasion by roving and destructive bands and groups of pillagers and refugees seek asylum from chaos and instability. Able to control the egress in a manner few other nations can do, and have in addition the physical and mental wherewithal and DETERMINATION TO DO SO!
