Italy is sending in Al Pacino, Robert Deniro, Joe Pesci and a few other hoods from the South Side.

The GodFather is coming man.

1. The Godfather would never have sent us into Iraq.
He would have been to smart for that.

3. The Godfather IV
Whoa! Wait a minute, now! Don Corleone wouldn't have sent us into Iraq? Really? Doesn't this thesis undermine the whole "blood for oil" business scenario? Didn't Michael Corleone say, "It's not personal. It's business"?

Mikey had to kill A LOT of enemies to maintain his empire. That was the business model of the Mafia. And in the end, it was a tragic one. Why? TOO MANY BODIES. But that's the way the Mob did business. Remember what someone said to Michael in, I believe, Godfather II: "You can't kill everyone." I think it was Tom Hayden who said this. I may be wrong. And Michael said, "I don't want to kill everyone. Just my enemies."

This idea is worth thinking about now, IMHO.

4. Oh yeah? Them folks in Tuscany ain't all nice and polite like all the
brochures say.

In fact, my 2 weeks in italy last summer were amongst the most hostile and unpleasant of any in my life ever.

Italians ain't all that pleasant. That's just in the movies.
