I am not sure WHERE they would have ended up. In a black hole I am sure!


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.

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.

In an unprecedented counter-attack by citizens of Liechtenstein, 12 members of the elite Pfadfinder und Pfadfinderinnen Österreichs (PPÖ; Austrian Boy Scouts and Girl Guides the largest Scouting and Guiding organization in Austria) meandered across the border near Davos Switzerland demanding chocolate and watch repair.
Below is the original dispatch from Huff post.

You were busy trying to get yourself lit on fire. It happens.


Wait - Liechtenstein is an actual country? We never learned about in any geography classes...

(I thought they made it up for A Knight's Tale.)

Tis true! All roads lead to Jersey because all of the Phatom states only exist on a back lot somewhere off the Jersey turnpike.

I think it is run by some guy named J. Hoffa.
