Swiss invade Lichtenstein!

I always knew that their neutrality was a facade to lull us all to sleep. The age of Switzerland begins in Lichtenstein.
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.

Word is they used a unit heavily armed with pocket knives, spoons, and toothpicks to overcome any resistance to their determined march.
