there's something very odd about all of this
Fully expect there to be a clause in the economic bailout bill that promises Berlusconi lifetime immunity from prosecution
which, if that is the case, will be BEYOND scandalous - blackmailing the entire European economy to get away with murder (figuratively speaking of course)
but Italy's is 10x that of Greece and most people are mildly concerned?!
If any country has the ability the destroy the euro-zone, except Germany, it's Italy.
I do feel bad about them, cause they are the latest country to fall under IMF, EU, ECB dictatorship.
As far as Berlusconi goes, fuck him, he's a lunatic, though he was right about Merkel.
genuinely one of the worst leaders of a country in the world.
for example: Obama, Cameron, Sarkozy, Merkel, Papandreou.
Which explains why you listed them and didn't otherwise bother.
They, except Papandreou, are responsible for 50,000 dead civilians in a illegal aggression on Libya. They are responsible for bringing Al-Qaeda to power in Libya. They are, with the big banks, much more responsible than Berlusconi for the economic mess the whole world is in.
This includes, I believe,
those killed in acts of mass murdered by Pro-Gaddaffi troops and those killed by NTC troops, as well as those who died in NATO strikes.
Given the conflict in Libya started before the NATO intervention, and given there had been a high number of killings before NATO intervention, and given the NTC were and would have been fighting anyway, just not with NATO support, your maths are incredibly disingenuous to the point of being entirely without value.
Exact figures are hard to find but 25, 000 to 35, 000 seems more likely.
Your above post appears to indicate so.
Because he was a friend of my country, because Libya had the fourth largest living standard in Africa, because Libya's debt to GDP ratio was 2% (one of the lowest in the world), because he opposed American imperialism, because he wanted to give oil concessions to Russia and China because the US and EU owe Libya 200 billion $ in unpaid oil bills.
Now2 we should let the man enjoy his 'bunga bunga' parties in peace!
He resigns because of the economy. Seems like a bit of a cop .
this was the case during the 'boom' years too.
He's an idiot and he's pretty much merked an entire generation.
just... he's such a dick that he's still pretending not to realise that everyone hates him. he's had to resign but he's still like FOOLED YOU GUYS. YOU CAN DISMISS ME BUT YOU'RE ALL STILL FUCKED
yep, take care ok bye x
what a man.
