Hit a road block in Connecticut; which is dramatically less inconvenient than hitting a road block in Iraq!
I read some more today about the Italian agent killed in Iraq while escorting the recently-released hostage, Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, from the bad guys. Seems like quite a blunder.
I want to believe the American soldiers' stories; but the American military lies so much it's impossible to know if they EVER tell the truth. And the Italian journalist who WAS freed has a story that seems much more believable; especially since the dead man drew his last breath on top of her while shielding her from bullets.
It looks like Italy will be the next nation to abandon the American campaign to acquire the natural resources of Iraq. Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is also the chairman of the AC Milan football club, and he knows how to run a public relations campaign. Iraq is a PR nightmare for him right now. No good can come from his continued support for sending Italian troops and I suspect they will be completely withdrawn by Christmas.
Since the American media barely covers this stuff, I thought I'd proffer links from the bad guys:
