I hope they nail his old butt to the wall. He wants attention, I hope he gets more than he can live with.

So true. The whole country is 1 big bank vault, they have fallout shelters for 140% of the country's population I hear, air bases inside mountains to protect against bombardment and heavily guarded armories scattered across the country. I don't know how true any of that is but the fact is Hitler went around them when he steamrolled Europe.

Hitler didn't go into Switzerland because Switzerland is neutral not because he feared getting bogged down in the mountains. The Luftwaffe could have bottled up any Swiss army by controlling the roads. Switzerland is a bizarre federation that has MANDATORY ownership of weapons for the purpose of national defense. No one is terribly concerned about an aggressive Switzerland.
