Swiss Invade Liechtenstein (Oops!)

This amuses me to no end! No doubt, it's just my strange sense of humor again.

[A] company of Swiss soldiers got lost at night and marched into neighboring Liechtenstein.

A spokesman for the Swiss army confirmed the story but said that there were unlikely to be any serious repercussions for the mistaken invasion.

[Liechtenstein] Interior ministry spokesman Markus Amman said nobody in Liechtenstein had even noticed the soldiers, who were carrying assault rifles but no ammunition. "It's not like they stormed over here with attack helicopters or something," he said.
Pertinent facts:
  • Liechtenstein (population 34,000) does not have an army
  • Switzerland is officially neutral.
