Liechtenstein's Crown Prince Alois upset U.S. doesn't consider his country important enough to sanction
'Are we not the richest country on this planet by GDP per capita?' the Crown Prince snapped at an AP reporter -- actually the only reporter -- at a hastily convened press conference. Did we not expand the powers of the monarchy in our country? Those alone are two sound reasons for the U.S. to sanction Liechtenstein and I can think of several more. But no, we are snubbed because we are a very small country. This is flagrant bias, and we plan to bring a human rights complaint before the United Nations,' the Crown Prince explained in answer to the AP reporter's question about whether Liechtenstein planned to retaliate. 'Every country deserves to be sanctioned by the United States if some countries are sanctioned.'
