(True, originally reported in the New York Times, October 18, 1992.) Switzerland, known for its neutrality over the centuries, briefly invaded neighboring Liechtenstein this past Tuesday. Troops on maneuvers received orders to set up a camp in Triesenberg but, according to Liechtenstein officials, the Swiss "overlooked that Triesenberg is not located on Swiss territory." Switzerland's neighbors include Austria, France, Germany, Italy, and Liechtenstein; of these countries, only Liechtenstein can boast that it has no army, its population is less than 30,000, and it is smaller than Washington, D.C.
