Swiss Army Chief Warns Of Social Unrest, Calls Upon Citizens To Arm Themselves

Tyler Durden's picture

Swiss army chief André Blattmann warned, in a Swiss newspaper article on Sunday, the risks of social unrest in Europe are soaring. Recalling the experience of 1939/1945, Blattman fears the increasing aggression in public discourse is an explosively hazardous situation, and advises the Swiss people to arm themselves and warns that the basis for Swiss prosperity is "being called into question."

As Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten reports, speaking on the record for the first time since the November Paris terror attacks, Blattmann told the paper that despite a rise in security incidents over the past two years Switzerland’s means of defence were being reduced.

The situation is growing increasingly risky, Blattman begins.

 

"The threat of terror is rising, hybrid wars are being fought around the globe; the economic outlook is gloomy and the resulting migration flows of displaced persons and refugees have assumed unforeseen dimensions."

 

Blattmann: "Social unrest can not be ruled out", the vocabulary in public discourse will "dangerously aggressive."

 

"The mixture is increasingly unappetizing" Blattmann sees the basis of Swiss prosperity, "has long been once again called into question."

 

He recalls the situation around the two world wars in the last century and advises Switzerland, to arm themselves.

 

The Swiss Armed Forces had held many years ago maneuver, in which the starting point was focused on social unrest in Europe.

Swiss politicians, of course, responded with disbelief to the army chief and hold his warnings are exaggerated.

The only European Country worth anything is the Swiss Confederation, All Males are armed and trained in Homeland defense!

Also secure your borders, register all foreigners, deport illegal aliens!

This is how you preserve Freedom and Liberty!

Arm all non criminal taxpaying citizens, train them in firearms safety and profociency,

Keep your government issued automatic Rifle at home and stand by!

Also listen to the wishes of your citizens, if they do not want islamist refuse entering their country then keep them out!

Let the international islamist and other criminals/terrorist vermin try an attack then!

The liar 0.01% zionists hide in Basle Switzerland, and hijacked the USA,but they want guns in Switzerland to defend them.
The USA Constitution and right to bear arms against tyrannical government is undermined in the USA, while the gnomes of Zuriich demand neutrality in war, gun up, and fear their Frankenstein.

The home of rootless cosmopolitans, permanently neutral, profit off all wars , USE THE USA, conspire to ruin the Constitution, harbour nazionists, and lectures me and mine who bailed out your failed banks.
FUCK OFF.

OT - I live in a very rural area. Guy around is known as Steveo. He's on my short list if TSHTF and he doesn't even know I exist. If in a drunken post I insult you - it's because of that.

P.S. Steveo - if this is you - you are so fuked.

Whatever Zionism is supposed to mean, what it actually means is that a false d o c u m e n t called the Balfour Declaration gave real estate that did not belong to Britain to atheist Khazarian gentiles, posing as Jews, who have never had the right to any of that land, regardless that the name 'Israel' was cleverly selected to call it, in order to dupe millions of Christians around the world.  WWII was created for the specific purpose of establishing a headquarters as close to the newly discovered oil fields in the Middle East and to disrupt all governments in the region and seize the oil, and 'Israel' is that headquarters, doing exactly that !

I realise this is unrelated to this article - However people need to know the TRUTH !

Another 'thing' with posting privileges posting racist pro-Palestinian drivel as usual. If Jews are from Khazar than Europeans are gypsies' cousins from India, I mean the mythical land of Araina. Say hello to your Aryan uncle in Iran and Pakistan.

I didn't know that Houston is in Israel?

'Kill the lawyers '. (Shakespeare). It is the intent of King, Queen and .gov to steal everthing, and Shakespeare was referring to tax collectors.
Expressing a literary defiance today would get one put on a watch list.
F'em. Fascist, 0.01%, their Talmud, their nazionist filth.

Jews and muslims are guests, not owners. We are the northern people. Chatting with a Scot clan chief tonight, we disagree on many things, but we know the northern people are tolerant...but furious when push comes to shove, and alien ideas threaten our existence. We are tolerant of everything and everyone. But we northern people are not stupid.
Our patience wears thin with the lies of career politicians and their zionist masters.
It is no surprise that the Swiss centre of international financiers keep guns, and fear what they have wrought: permanent war and financial ruin everywhere else. Nasty lil nazionists.

Scottish Clan Chiefs sold their people off the land and installed sheep in their place, today the nation is still largely made up of sheep. They were given large estates in England in return for turning their backs on the battle for independence.

Scottish clan chiefs are contemptible creatures.

Able bodied adult Swiss are required to join the Army reserves and maintain their issued weapons at home. With their large reserves they have a trained force comparable to the U.S.. Anyone who's been hiking in Switzerland has probably scene the large bunker doors out in the forests.  That's why no one's ever invaded them. They own Europe's High Ground. This story must be taliking about the wider population. When trouble starts, you don't have time to run home and get your gun.
