Teddy Bear Invasion

The Belarussian Air Defense Chief has been fired after a Swedish plane entered Belarus' airspace and dropped hundreds of teddy bears.


It's probably the first time in history that teddy bears have defeated generals.

Belarus' authoritarian President Alexander Lukashenko has sacked the nation's air defense chief and the head of the Border Guards service after a Swedish light plane intruded on the country's airspace and dropped in hundreds of teddy bears decked out in parachutes and slogans supporting human rights.
