Another Invasion

Everyone is trying to get into world domination. According to an Associated Press report Swiss Accidentally Invade 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.

I think they are going to need to do a little more work on map reading, and someone needs to bring along a GPS receiver. It’s really embarrassing when you accidentally invade another country…especially if the country doesn’t notice.

That’s it!!

Can’t we declare that we accidentally wandered into Iraq and issue a “Never mind”?

You mean: “Gee, the maps said ‘Nevada Desert Training Center’. My bad, sorry. Have a nice day.”

Yeah, that’s it, andante… it’s a “GPS malfunction,” like Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction.” Except that hers only cost the network half a million bucks; we should be so lucky in Iraq.
