Swiss Fighter Plane keeps Swiss Airspace free of German Intruders!
GERMAN VIOLATION OF SWISS SOVEREIGNTY!
On 10 May 1940, when Nazi-Germany commenced the drive into France, that the Swiss army as a whole was mobilized a second time.
At the onset of the campaign against France, Nazi-German military aircraft first violated Swiss airspace.
The first serious combat involving the Swiss Air Force began in June 1940.
In six days of aerial battles, Swiss fighter pilots downed eleven German fighter planes, with a loss of two Swiss aircraft and three Swiss airmen killed.
FINAL SCORE: SWISS 11 - GERMANS 2!
GERMANY INDIGNANT AT SWISS SELF-DEFENSE!
The chief of the Nazi Luftwaffe, Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering seethed with rage!
On 6 June 1940, facing the 11 own losses, he was hypocritically indignant against the successful Swiss fighter pilots!
He claimed brazenly: «Most of the German planes were in French airspace and the Luftwaffe had entered Swiss airspace only by mistake.»
Consequently, Nazi-Germany demanded financial compensation and an apology by the Swiss government.
GERMANY EXTORTS SWITZERLAND!
On 19 June 1940, Nazi-Germany made a second and more extortionate demand on the Swiss government!
Wherein they stated that they viewed the air battles as a flagrant act of aggression, and if these interceptions continued, Switzerland would face sanctions and retaliation.
SWISS GOVERNMENT KOWTOWS TOWARD GERMANY!
The next day, 20 June 1940, the Supreme Commander of the Swiss Army, General Henri Guisan, ordered all Swiss units to stop engaging foreign aircraft!
And on 1 July 1940, the Swiss Federal Council apologized for possible border violations by Swiss pilots, without admitting any had occurred.
On 16 July 1940, the Battle of Britain had just begun, the Nazi government declared to the Swiss government that they consider the matter of the past air battles as settled!
SWISS GOVERNMENT CONTINUES SUBMITTING TO GERMANY!
Engagements of Swiss air force and Swiss antiaircraft against aircraft of the combatant nations was prohibited until October 1943, when strategic bombing of Bavaria and Austria by the Allies became an increasing likelihood.
Does that sound familiar?
Well, history repeats itself over and over again!
Spiked helmet WILLY and his Prussia's Glory had bullied Switzerland!
Swastika ADOLF and his arrogant gangsters continued in this way!
Nowadays, it's the turn of Stasi MERKEL and her loudmouthed EU-Krauts!
It sucks, how every Swiss Government kowtows towards any ballooned Kraut, as soon that opens his big trap!
