Guys, since I'm italian, we are foes now, did you know ? It seems that all this mess about the Euro, and internal italian political fights, are part of a economic war declared by USA/UK. I'm reading italian newspapers today, it seems that Italy has strategic interests in Libya, Turkey, Russia, and Algeria, and anglosaxon groups do not like it. The pieces of the puzzle are falling into place, recent attacks to Italy's Finmeccanica (defence, aerospace) about supposed slush funds, comfirm it. http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSLDE6AO0DB20101125 And then reading news like this, you have the complete picture: "Italian industrial conglomerate Finmeccanica is vying for a prominent role in Turkeyâs lucrative defense market," http://www.hurriyetdailynews.com/n....top-role-in-turkish-defense-market-2010-11-19 So, am I still a guest in this forum ?
