has Italy seen thru the veil of American imperialism ???
check out these two stories ... in one, Italian arrest warrants are out for 13 CIA agents; in the other, top execs at American mega-corps Bank of America and Deloitte-Touche were indicted by the Italian government ... yeah, i'm so proud to be an American today ...

source: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/25/international/europe/...

An Italian judge has ordered the arrest of 13 officers and operatives of the Central Intelligence Agency on charges that they seized an Egyptian cleric on a Milan street two years ago and flew him to Egypt for questioning, Italian prosecutors and investigators said Friday.

source: http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&cid=580&e=1&u=/nm...

The Italian offices of Bank of America, auditors Deloitte & Touche and the former Italian affiliate of Grant Thornton were also charged with helping dairy group Parmalat mislead investors.

Under Italian law, companies can stand trial, facing possible fines or even enforced closure if found guilty. Two Deloitte partners and three Bank of America employees were also indicted as individuals.

2. Egypt-the land of torture.
Apparently that is where we like to take our torture victims, to Egypt where they can hurt them all they like. We are responsible for this no matter where it takes place...

3. Hell yes___their history is rich with just being conquered
just last week I saw a show on Sicily that said at one time it was occupied by 3 different powers. Once your've been conquered, you wake up to see exactly how it happened. Italians have had Bush's number since he stole the 2000 selection
