Mr. Peer Steinbrück said something about cavalery, meaning Germany, and Indians, meaning the Swiss.A Swiss politician compared Steinbrück to a Nazi politician. The Austrians think that the German finance minister has watched too many Westerns.

This is more serious that it looks. Whatever the political agenda, a German politician should not take the liberty to threaten German-speaking neighbours with military power. We all know why.

By the way, apparently Mrs. Merkel supports her minister.
