Swiss Invasion!!

Those ornery Swiss (no offense, Digital Wife) invaded neighboring Lichtenstein. They have withdrawn their disproportionately large troop buildup due to intense international pressure and have promised to give the Lichtensteinians back their country soon. Not that they have to - Lichtenstein doesn't even have an army.

Via the AP:
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.


Liechtenstein, which has about 34,000 inhabitants and is slightly smaller than Washington DC, doesn't have an army.
You know, knowing now that Lichtenstein doesn't have an army, and using my in-depth knowledge of the rules of Risk, I can now own Lichtenstein by having one soldier in the country. I hereby invade Lichtenstein. You are mine.
