Head of the Swiss Army fired the Alarm


7.01.16

The former head of the body now head of the Swiss army fired the alarm about the worsening social imbalances, the terrorist threat and the risks associated with migration.

André Blattmann, like any member of the Swiss army, a hybrid character civil half military half. Specialist in air defense and for pilot training, he took command of Swiss forces in 2009.
Commenting for the first time the situation since the attacks in France on November 13, he warned against an “explosion of insecurity in the last two years”, this while the defense budget had been significantly reduced. He then explained: “Although we have not been directly affected by the events of the war in the world today, we can already feel the effects.
He continued: “The terrorist threat increases, hybrid wars are becoming more frequent, the economic outlook has darkened and migration caused by these wars and economic problems have already taken an unsuspected proportion, exacerbating competition the labor market.
Finally, he emphasized that “the mixture is becoming more explosive” and that “the foundations of prosperity are once again called into question.” In conclusion, and according to him, the situation is reminiscent of the years of the interwar period, and Swiss citizens should arm themselves to face the challenges ahead.
In the Schweiz am Sonntag newspaper, the head of the army resumed its warnings against social unrest in Europe. He sees evidence of these in the form of increasingly aggressive public speeches.
André Blattmann was initiated several years preparing Switzerland to react to various threats, including one imagined the secession of a French territory, that decides to attack its neighbor. Obviously, these comments were strongly criticized by the left and the Greens policies. They claimed that these statements were “exaggerated” and that all was well in the best of worlds – that of the Confederation course.
But they would do well not to take lightly the words of this soldier.
For the record, André Blattmann had explained a few days before the November bombings: “The terrorist threat is more concrete again to the West. “Result: 130 dead …
It is worth remembering that most Swiss are armed. 3,000,000 firearms thus account for 8 million people. Each Helvète, almost, since each has his gun Swiss citizen is a soldier, even if the ammunition is being kept dissociated in the barracks.

To be clear I support The Swiss Army ..Whatever Semper Fi, The question of implicate the Army in protection of civilians from all kind of Jihadist, will be the question in few countries on the run of 2016

    Glad to hear that at least Switzerland is taking things seriously. My ancient grandfather Sir John D’Esterlinge came from Switzerland in the train of Sir Otto D’ Grandison (I believe) to England in the 1300’s. I have always considered Switzerland the true origin of the Stradling (Esterlinge) family. I am concerned for the state of Europe and for the preservation of its culture. I do not believe that Islam (even moderate) can or ever will be compatible with Western European Christian Culture and that the continued introduction of these people into Western society will only increase the divisiveness of our population and national identities.

    I totally agree with you Dallas John Stradling but so many people are blind deaf and mute about the danger of Islam.
