Facebookers in the UK planning to invade Lichtenstein

I thought that this was amusing: from The Guardian, "Liechtenstein braces itself for a Facebook invasion"

"Lizzie Palmer, Sheffield University student and self-proclaimed future queen of Liechtenstein, co-launched the group "The Facebook Army – Let's Get 1m People And Then Invade Liechtenstein". Although enthused by the idea of limitless false teeth, she insists that Liechtenstein was chosen for more pragmatic reasons.

...

Palmer took encouragement from the muted reaction but says detailed invasion plans are still being drawn up, subject to careful consultation with the group's other 7,000 members.

Liechtenstein's concern is understandable though, given it has little or no military history. The army was abolished soon after the Austro-Prussian War of 1866, in which Liechtenstein fielded a fighting force of just 80."
