Re: US threatens Swiss with return to visas: report

The US continues to be the leading bullies on the planet...Pathetic really

No interest in returning so they can keep their visas, I'll keep my privacy

Discussion is here.
For those that have not realized it.

USA threatens Switzerland: give us your criminal records, or no more visa-waiver

Re: US threatens Swiss with return to visas: report

Argh, what right do they have to do that? private records to this country and America wants access. So take away the visa waiver scheme, I know its a small country here, but you will no doubt lose out on tourism from it. It almost seems childish!
