Re: Black Hawks in Dubendorf

When Obama visited Frankfurt did the city have to weld shut any man hole within a mile from his route... I am pretty sure a couple of Blackhawks are not a sign for him coming over. Biden will and probably one or two other senior guys... especially since this years WEF attendance seems to be overall less senior than all the previous years.

Re: Black Hawks in Dubendorf

US is planning to take over Zürich to protect us from Putin coming in to protect the poor oligarchs around Zürich lake who are at risk of paying higher taxes, the first aggressive move was here.

They are also planning to extradite Blatter who will fund the whole operation from various bank accounts world wide.

Re: Black Hawks in Dubendorf

More details emerging!!


The FIFA museum will be taken over to be the headquarters of the US/Zürich Freedom Peace Brigade.
The next two FIFA world cups will moved from Dubai and Russia to Oregon USA to provide work for the militias.


Blocher has secretly been offered the role of Zürich Governor General and has already resigned all his political posts in readiness.


All Zürich residents will become US citizens (with no voting rights) and pay US taxes back dated ten years.


The official currency will be the US$ and all Zürich banks will have to convert all Swiss Franc accounts to the $ at the favourable rate of 5CHF = 1 US$ less 20% commission; for reasons of simplicity bank accounts of non-Zürich residents will also be converted.


All refugees will be co-opted into squads whose initial roles will be releasing assets from safe deposits and peace keeping.


Coca cola will be the official Fasnacht drink.

Meh. No blackhawks on the Presidential detail. It's VH-3s. Plus nice Ospreys for carrying staff around that don't warrant the VH-3 (ancient that it may be).

Only 3 accidents since it entered service, which is very low for military aircraft that complex. And only one that was due to mechanical error. It did have a long and deadly development process but it's been an excellent transport since it was declared operational, just ask the F-15 pilot shot down over Libya back in 2011.

I support your opinion, but that F-15 crashed because of pilot error:
