Swiss Military Practices Fending Off Invasion from 'Financially Stricken France'

Swiss war games conducted in August and revealed days ago pitted the Swiss military against invading hordes from “a financially stricken France.”

The Telegraph carried reports from Matin Dimanche saying the Swiss military practiced for an attack from a bankrupt France that had “broken into warring regions.”

One of the regions was named “Saonia” and was described as invading to take back money it believed Switzerland had “swiped from France.”

The operation was in depth, “imagining a three-pronged invasion” organized by “a paramilitary organization… [called] the Dijon Free Brigade.”

Upon receiving criticism for the war games, Swiss armored brigade captain Daniel Berger said Switzerland has nothing against the French. Rather, the games were organized in a way that used familiar French towns to provide “[Swiss] soldiers with a real scale.”

When Europe was at the high point of its financial crisis, Switzerland carried out a similar war game in which it prepared to react to “a huge wave of refugees [crossing] into the country after the implosion of the European single currency.”
