Blattmann has been the head of the Swiss army since 2009, and his name and persona carry significant weight. We all know that the Swiss preserved their peace by way of mountains and neutrality, but now it seems those days are over.
Blattman further states that the situation is getting worse and worse. He believes that social unrest is imminent and that the world is falling apart. One only has to look at the world economy and the flow of refugees.
He advises his people to arm themselves.
The Swiss army had maneuvers in the past which were based around social unrest in the countries that surround Switzerland.
These countries are France and Austria. What these two countries have in common is that they both have massive problems with immigration and Islamisation. In 2006 Rear Admiral Chris Parry made a warning similar to one Blattmann makes now- the combination of immigration and Islam will lead to “a civilizational collapse on a par with the fall of the Roman Empire”.
When he was attacked by journalists, Parry was defended by the head of the British Armed Forces, who claimed that this was only a warning, not a threat or a promise. He said so, in order for the politicians to address the problem.
