  2. I think the good Prof is exaggerating somewhat. Although they might be slightly less likely to be targeted, do we think the Talibs actually care about the nationality of the infidels they slaughter?

    Don't know what all the fuss is about. Upto c1600 the Swiss had a reputation for supplying the best mercenaries in Europe. The Swiss Guard in the Vatican is the final remnant of that "tradition".
     
  4. Dunno why their all pissed off. Mate of mine who did 3 years with them in Iraq said all his long and short gats were supplied by the Swiss.
     
  5. Moral qualms from the Swiss?

    They arm anyone and everyone.

    They have taken money (and gold teeth and who knows what else...) from some of the dodgiest characters in history.

    And they've a problem with Aegis?

    I know they're neutral, but I didn't know that their brains were in neutral.
