Quote of the Day for 25 September 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:26 AM (04:26)

“I’ll tell you what I’d prefer our government’s foreign policy to be, assuming we need to have a State at all. My proposal is pretty simple: Swiss-style armed neutrality. That means no invasions, no military threats, no foreign aid, no “covert operations”, no military bases outside the country, no attempts to influence the internal affairs of foreign countries whatsoever.

“No one blows up bombs in the streets of Geneva. No one from Switzerland gets kidnaped in third world countries to protest the evils of Swiss foreign policy. Wherever they go, at worst, people think of the Swiss as boring – it is rare that anyone feels the need to buttonhole someone from Zurich or Lugano and tell them off for what their government does.

“The Swiss are not pacifists, though. They have a very strong militia for defense, and in times past when Europe was less peaceful, it would have been extremely costly for an attacker to invade them. Even if (in the case of particularly strong enemies) an invasion might have ultimately succeeded, it would have yielded very little of value at an astonishing expense.”
