As you know, My hometown is where all the G8
leaders are going to land before going off to their meetings in Lausanne and Evian.
Geneva is expecting up to 400,000 protestors to come to Geneva (that doubles the city's population).
The left-leaning Geneva city government refuses to take strong measures like bringing in the army for crowd control.
Insurance companies have already announced that they will not pay for any damage due to the protests. In other words, if you can't move yourself and all your belongings outside of Geneva for a week, you are at risk.
In the newspapers, they are talking about the probability of "losing control" of certain key parts of the city, if protestors make a determined push. These areas mentioned include the airport, the train station, and the Mont-Blanc bridge which is at the heart of the city. Should this happen, the Geneva city government says that they will not resist.
I am getting very worried about this. The pussies in the Geneva government are basically giving an open invitation to every hooligan and "professional" protestor and wrecker that they have a free ride in Geneva, and the only people who will pay for the burnt cars, buildings, shattered glass and spray-painted walls are the local citizens like me.
What they should be doing is bringing in the army, and warning the protestors that anyone seen getting out of hand will be shot at. I am armed, and I intend to do just that to anyone who invades my property (I live quite close to the airport, so I'm probably in a target area.)
Any other Geneva residents here?
The only thing you should feel when shooting a terrorist: Recoil.
