It comes after months of warnings from experts – including top military brasses – that massive economic issues, mass immigration, and terrorism will lead to a full-scale crisis.
They have predicted this will affect the entire continent, eventually leading to civil war on the streets.
It seems that Switzerland’s Lieutenant General and Chief of the Armed Forces, André Blattmann, has foreseen what is to come. He warned last year:
[T]he combination of hybrid wars, the economy, and the refugee crisis would have “unforeseen dimensions”.
He then claimed social unrest was something Europe’s leaders and armies had to be prepared for.
The Swiss might be historically neutral, but they aren’t blind to the upheaval that could threaten stability both at home in their independent nation, and surrounding them on the rest of the European continent.
