Berlusconi ’Massacred’ in Regional Elections
By : Robin Pomeroy and Gavin Jones - Tuesday April 5, 2005
2 comments
ROME (Reuters) - Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi suffered a crushing defeat at Italian regional elections, official results showed on Monday, a huge boost for center-left leader Romano Prodi’s hopes of unseating him next year. In what one of his defeated regional governors described as a "massacre," Berlusconi’s center-right coalition appeared to have lost 11 of the 13 regions at stake, holding on to just two — Lombardy and Veneto — both in its stronghold in the (...)

Is That Respecting Our Soldiers? by Gail Vida Hamburg The state funeral in Rome last month for Nicola Calipari - the Italian intelligence officer who rescued a kidnapped journalist from Iraqi captors, only to be gunned down by jittery American soldiers at a checkpoint in Baghdad - was a national event that united all Italians, merging their raw sorrow with the singular grief of his widow and children. It was the second time Italy pulled out all the stops for its Iraq War dead. In (...)

By Richard Owen and Michael Evans BOWING to popular pressure, the Italian Government said last night that it would start pulling its more than 3,000 troops out of Iraq in September.

The killing of intelligence officer Nicola Calipari and the wounding of journalist Giuliana Sgrena by American soliders was a ’’horrific accident." But beyond that there is little agreement as to what happened. The Americans say the car the Italians were traveling in was going 60 miles an hour. The Italians say it was going 25.

The Passion of Giuliana Sgrena
By : Danny Schechter - Wednesday March 9, 2005
by Danny Schechter NEW YORK - Italian Journalist Giuliana Sgrena became an icon in Iraq, a role model of a caring journalist of conscience kidnapped by parties unknown. Her plight mobilized the people of Italy with virtually the whole county demanding her release. In response, Italy dispatched an intelligence agent to find her and negotiate her release. Miraculously, he did, but as fate would have it, was killed by US soldier suspicious of his car, which raced through, they say, a (...)

It had been days they were telling me I would be released. I was living in waiting for this moment. They were speaking about things that only later I would have understood the importance of. They were speaking about problems "related to transfers." I learned to understand what was going on by the behavior of my two guards, (...)

The companion of freed Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena on Saturday leveled serious accusations at US troops who fired at her convoy as it was nearing Baghdad airport, saying the shooting had been deliberate. "The Americans and Italians knew about (her) car coming," Pier Scolari said on leaving Rome’s Celio military hospital where Sgrena is to undergo surgery following her return home. "They were 700 meters (yards) from the airport, which means that they had passed all (...)

From Rawa It was painful news for us to know about kidnapping of our best friend Giuliana Sgrena in Iraq. She has been a wonderful voice for people of Iraq and Afghanistan and has tried hard in the past years to inform others about the plight of Iraqis and Afghans under the so-called "war on terror" camping launched by the US government. Giuliana was in Iraq to witness the plight of innocent Iraqi people and show to the world that the invasion of Iraq by US forces has brought nothing (...)

Communist success in Italy backfires on Prodi
By : Tony Barber - Tuesday January 25, 2005
By Tony Barber in Rome An experiment in holding US-style primary elections has backfired for Italy’s centre-left opposition by denting the image of moderate reformism that party leaders deem vital to defeat Silvio Berlusconi, prime minister, in 2006. To the surprise of opinion pollsters, and to the dismay of many centre-left leaders, a self-declared gay Catholic hardline communist, emerged as the winner this week in a primary contest to choose the opposition’s candidate to (...)

Marcello Dell’Utri, 63, was sentenced to nine years in prison on Saturday by a court in Palermo, Sicily’s capital, after a trial in which the main evidence came from crime bosses who testified for the prosecution.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
