Libya War: after Gaddafi I will be the leader

Stories and News No. 343

The Story:

I will be
I was before too.
The fact is that when someone says it, many do not hear, for various reasons.
Demagoguery, rhetoric, bias, there are many words used to store it.
On the other hand, you have to admit that if I am personally telling you, that deserves greater attention.
Anyway, my words will remain here; ready to be denied at any time.
So I defy you to do so.
Not just today.
Come back here tomorrow, if you have time.
The day after tomorrow too.
In a year or two, when you want.
I know that time is my best witness.
Time…
As I said earlier, I was the leader of Libya before Gheddafi, even before this war.
Or a humanitarian mission, as you prefer.
Rather, let say a humanitarian war, so everyone is happy.
That is the main reason of my power: I make everyone happy.
Everyone that matters, of course.
But let's get to the evidences.
Of course you want evidence of what I say, isn’t it?
I have come to light in Libya in early 1950.
My coming brought great joy.
And despite what you may think, my black, incredibly black skin was the real reason for my success.
However, the 1955 law did not allow me to share my whole fortune with my fellow citizens, only half.
The rest was for the others: the outside friends.
Well, I remained the true and only king of Libya, the man who holds absolute power, the power to determine the fate of my country.
And I have this power since my arrival on the scene.
For me, just for me in 1969 the king was deposed and Gaddafi assumed the title of alleged leader of the country.
Just for me he decided to nationalize all industries, closing the foreign military bases, and only thanks to the benefits of my presence in 1977, the Libyan government was able to build roads, aqueducts and various plants.
From that year now, the annual income per capita of Libya is the highest in Africa…
My international popularity has naturally attracted attention abroad.
So, my Agent has worked hard to organize tours in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Holland, Spain, Cyprus, Monaco and France too.
By the end of sanctions, since 2004, also the United States opened their doors.
Now we arrive to the humanitarian war, to be precise, the war against the evil dictator.
The fact is that even after Gaddafi I'll always be the one who decides the fate of my land.
I will be here, in Tripoli, in October 2011, to celebrate my party as every year.
When and if the colonel will be defeated, someone else will come in his place.
If things go as the foreigner friends hope, maybe they will tell you that the country will finally have a more democratic government.
I know that that man will ever have to deal with me.
And like his predecessor and his successor he will be here with me.
I know it's hard to accept.
If what I say is true, anyone in the world should really ask who is boss in his country…

Libya War or Peace Mission? Here is the answer

Stories and News No. 342

The Story:

Once upon a time there was a country called Afghanistan.
I know, maybe you expected Libya.
However, a past story can serve to better understand the present.
The past…
Let’s say still actual, very actual.
In 2001, the same today Good guys went in that country with the Operation named Enduring Freedom.
It was a war or a peacekeeping mission?
Some asked.
Ten years later, many still wonder.
Well, now here's the answer:

This is a peace mission:


This I think no:


This is still a peace mission:


This seems no:


This is and always will be the only possible peace mission:


I could be wrong, but I hope this will never be:


The News: War is Peace.

Latest Libya war news: who are the good guys?

Stories and News No. 341

The Story:

Dear Good guys,
dear French, US and British governments, permanent members of UN Security Council, and dear leaders of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Colombia, Gabon, Lebanon, Nigeria, Portugal and South Africa, non-permanent members, who have voted in favor of Resolution 1973.
Dear all of you who have decided to ask the Bad guys – reading the Resolution - the immediate establishment of a ceasefire and a complete end to violence and all attacks against, and abuses of, civilians.
I am here to say thank you.
Thank you for choosing to protect us from the Bad guys.
Thank you for risking your own lives to save us from them.
Thanks, in short, to be the Good ones.
I am one of those civilians.
Here, to be honest… not just those civilians.
I am one of the others.
I speak from one of the many countries where civilians, at this very moment, are suffering attacks, violence and abuse, just like the Libyans.
Well, not just like…
For many* of us are even worse…
Excluding Iraq and Afghanistan - who you have already helped… - and Palestine - where you have so much difficulty to arrive… - in addition to Libya, there are places where the death toll continues to rise day after day.
In the Middle East, in the region of Kurdistan (Turkey), 45,000 persons have died since 1984, in Yemen 16,000 Shiites since 2004, 300 Tribal from 2010 and 200 Separatists since 2009.

20 died in Cambodia since 2008 and ever in Thailand, in the region of Pattani, 4,200 deaths since 2004.
In the Philippines, 41,000 New People's Army guerrillas were killed since 1969 and 71,000 people have died in Mindanao since 1984.
In the Koreas 200 died since 1953.
It is not over, but I go ahead.
I account in the patience of you, Good guys.
In Africa, Somalia, 10,500 people were massacred in 2006, in Ogaden, Ethiopia, 4,000 from 1994, in Kivu, Democratic Republic of the Congo, 6,000 since 2004.
100,000 died in Uganda since 1987.
In Darfur…
Do you know the Darfur, right?
In Darfur, Sudan, 300,000 died since 2003, only 400 since 2011 in the South.
In the Central African Republic 2,000 died since 2003, 2,000 in Chad since 2005, in Nigeria, in the Delta, since 1994 15,000 deaths and in Algeria – very next to Libya…200,000 died since 1992.
In Europe too!
Yes, in Russia, North Caucasus, 50,000 people have died since 1999.
Finally, in Latin America: 300,250 deaths since 1964 in Colombia and 32,000 since 2006 in Mexico.
Dear Good guys, as you saw the list over Libya is long.
I am not here to argue whether the Libyans had to be or not the first to help.
What matters is that as Good ones, you will come to me too.
You have to be hurry, because the Bad guys are winning, here.
The Bad guys are slaying us.
The Bad guys take advantage if the Good ones do not stop them.
The Bad guys…
Sorry, but… you are the Good guys, right?

Super full Moon Berlusconi miracle photos

Stories and News No. 340

The Story:

Someone said that Saturday, March 19, 2011, the moon will reach its closest point to earth after 19 years.
So we will be able to enjoy a super full moon in the sky.
Well, I know that science magazines as Focus say it is a hoax.
Let me dream.
God knows how much we need today to believe in dreams.
I want to believe in mine.
In my dream tomorrow the Super Giant Moon, after it entered the scene as an amazing actress or an exceptional dancer, will use its talent to draw upon itself the attention of my fellow citizens.
All of them, without exception.
What will its miracle be?
That is easy to guess.
It is the same that makes it huge, unbelievably huge.
Indeed, the Super Moon will have the power to make everything bigger, so big it can no longer be ignored.
Then, what this country is our duty to see without turning our gaze will appear next to it.
Everything will be there, right ahead our eyes, every moment we will raise our heads.
We will not be able to change the TV channel this time, because we cannot avoid looking at the sky when it looks at us.
And because, if you have the opportunity to look in his eyes…


Close…


Closer…


Much closer…


Incredibly closer…


You'll see clearly what he is really thinking when he is talking to you.
If, regardless of what you see, you’ll persist in blindly trust him, well… go back to your chair watching TV, because this show is not for you.

Here is the video.

Italy Minister Prestigiacomo nuclear expert

She has a Public Administration degree…

Stories and News No. 339

The Story:

Dear catastrophic people,
do you want to stop exploiting Japan to bring grist to the mill of your hypocritical environmentalist battles?
When will you end up with these alarms to provoke fears on weak minds?
Hear what he Italian Environment Minister, Stefania Prestigiacomo, said: "Italy is following with dismay and concern the dramatic events in Japan, but the government line on the return to the nuclear system in Europe does not change. The fact that Italy has to start from the beginning is an advantage in terms of security, because you can use the latest technology in new plants."
Is it clear? We all feel dismay and concern at the photos and video from Fukushima nuclear plants, but that does not allow us to take this opportunity to spread psychological terrorism.
The latest technologies, this is our response to challenges ahead.
What did you say? The earthquake in Italy?
Please, stop use your demagoguery…
What? The garbage in Naples?
These are bar talk, as the national soccer team: everyone feels to be entitled as the coach.
The reality is that the big questions, those that regards the whole population, must be managed by the best experts, the most talented professionals, with the right skills.
What? Minister Prestigiacomo? She is the Environment Minister, if you know what I mean.
None more than her has to deal with nuclear…
What are you asking now? Is she graduated?
Of course she is!
What subjects?
Wait, I control…
Here it is: Public Administration at the Free University Maria Santissima Assunta, with a thesis on international adoptions, are you happy?
What?
What it has to do with the environment and especially the nuclear power?
I don’t know!
She is the Minister, not me…

Fukushima nuclear meltdown: why Silvio still pro nuclear plants

Stories and News No. 338

The Story:

My name is Silvio.
No, I am not him.
I could be, but that is not a necessary and sufficient condition.
Not this time.
I am here to state that I am pro-nuclear.
I am, no ifs or buts, as people say often today to underline the insolubility of their position.
Do you want to know why?
I tell you at the end.
No one can insinuate that I am a last minute atom’s supporter.
The origins of my beliefs go back exactly to those of the first nuclear reactors.
Above all, I challenge you to prove I am ready to change my word at the first difficulties.
For this reason too I can not be that Silvio…
Nothing has so far succeeded to modify my point of view.
For example, in August 21, 1945, in Los Alamos, New Mexico (United States), Harry Daghlian - a technician of the city's plant National Laboratory - had the misfortune of dropping two cubes of plutonium and carbide tungsten in the ground and died some days later because of radiation.
But I did not change my mind: I was pro-nuclear.
On 21 May 1946, again in Los Alamos, during a public demonstration, the physicist Louis Slotin pulled two hemispheres of plutonium and unwittingly gave birth to a so-called critical mass. Slotin died too about ten days later because of radiation.
What about me? I was ever pro-nuclear.
On 12 December 1952, in Chalk River (Canada), there was an incident at the reactor room.
An explosion followed which caused the leakage of contaminated coolant that could contaminate the river Ottawa.
However, even then my yes to nuclear power remained intact.
In 1957, at Windscale (UK), at the nuclear power station there was a slow combustion of graphite, which caused a major leak of radioactivity, with all the consequences you can imagine.
That was not enough to make me move an inch from my own ideas in favor of nuclear power.
In the same year, in Majak (in the old USSR), a serious incident happened, this time at a military depot of radioactive materials. Due to the leakage of radiation, the around area was prohibited, but that did not stop the risk for the population.
However, even in those moments I had second thoughts: always yes to nuclear power.
In 1961, in Idaho Falls (United States), three people died as a result of an accident at the Testing Station of the National Reactor.
I was more convinced than ever of my reasons: the nuclear is safe.
In 1969, in Lucens (Switzerland), fortunately the accidental contamination of the cave where the nuclear reactor was did not cause any leak of radiation, at least according to the chronicle of the time.
Anyway, try to understand me: I had not changed my mind with the dead, let alone without…
In 1973 there was another accident at the Windscale plant in Great Britain, however, unable to dent my nuclear passion.
On 22 February 1977, the accident happened in old Czechoslovakia, at the Bohunice plant.
Well, I was still favorable to nuclear power.
On 28 March 1979, Three Mile Island (Pennsylvania, United States), the incident caused a lot of radioactive leaks, requiring the evacuation of 140,000 people.
But I always stayed in favor of nuclear power.
On 15 September 1984, in Athens (Alabama, United States), there was a serious failure of the instrumentation at the local plant, but no radioactive leaks.
So I could put into question for so little?
In 1986, Chernobyl (Ukraine), here is the most serious accident of history.
Greenpeace report states that the explosion and the subsequent release of radioactive materials have caused - in addition to environmental damage - the death of about 100,000 people of cancer, leukemia and more.
However, I feel sorry for them, but even then I have not changed my mind: yes, yes to nuclear power.
Thus, although in 1986 there were accidents also in Plymouth (United States) and Hamm-Uentrop (Germany), my position remained the same.
The three incidents in the following year, in the cities of GoiĆ¢nia (Brazil), Delta and Lycoming - both in the United States - did not get different results, despite the former caused many deaths.
In 1996, there were two other incidents in the United States, in Waterford and Crystal River, but everything remained as before in my preference for nuclear power.
In 1999 in Tokaimura (Japan), two technicians at the plant died from radiation after an accident and I was ever pro-nuclear.
In 2002, here is a new incident in the United States, specifically in Oak Harbor, but I was impassive.
On August 9, 2004 here is the second time in Japan: incident at the nuclear power plant in Fukui.
Five people died and a dozen wounded, the medical bulletin was sad, but not enough to pity me and attack my certainties.
In 2006, in Fleurus, Belgium, an accident caused serious consequences for a worker exposed to radiation.
However, I remained faithful to nuclear power.
Well, let’s arrive at today, to the explosions at the Fukushima plant, in Japan, due to the earthquake.
Now, after all this time, do you think that these recent alarming reports can influence me in some way?
After all the previous incidents in more than sixty years of explosions, radiation and dead, do you really think it takes so little to change my mind?
I was, am and will always be a pro-nuclear, and you know why?
Because whatever happens, anything wrong occurs to me and people like me.
Indeed…

Women Day 2011: women who do not celebrate

Stories and News No. 337

Today, March 8, 2011, in Italy we have the centenary of International Women's Day.
In fact, the first celebration occurred in 1911 just two years after the very first, held in the United States.
In Italy the Women's Day is called the Feast of women.
The Feast and the Day are different, isn’t it?
Now, this morning I asked most of the girls I've met - of course those I know, I did not stop them in the road… if they celebrate the so-called Feast of women.
100% of them said no.
These are the most common phrases: I celebrate it all year and there is nothing to celebrate here.
Yet, while walking through the city traffic, I still saw everywhere bunches of mimosa (in Italy men usually offer it to women in this day).
So I asked myself: is the Italian Women's Day celebrated only by men?
Apart from the provocation, after I asked myself another question: If I were a woman, I would celebrate the Feast of women?

The Story:

If I were a woman.
If I were an Italian woman I would know that today, 8 March, is my Feast.
However, reading the 2010 Global gender gap world ranking, drawn by the World Economic Forum, I would know that the following 73 countries have more reasons to celebrate than me:
1. Iceland
2. Norway
3. Finland
4. Sweden
5. New Zealand
6. Ireland
7. Denmark
8. Lesotho
9. Philippines
10. Switzerland
11. Spain
12. South Africa
13. Germany
14. Belgium
15. United Kingdom
16. Sri Lanka
17. Netherlands
18. Latvia
19. United States
20. Canada
21. Trinidad and Tobago
22. Mozambique
23. Australia
24. Cuba
25. Namibia
26. Luxembourg
27. Mongolia
28. Costa Rica
29. Argentina
30. Nicaragua
31, Barbados
32. Portugal
33. Uganda
34. Moldova
35. Lithuania
36. Bahamas
37. Austria
38. Guyana
39. Panama
40. Ecuador
41. Kazakhstan
42. Slovenia
43. Poland
44. Jamaica
45. Russian Federation
46. France
47. Estonia
48. Chile
49. Macedonia
50. Bulgaria
51. Kyrgyz Republic
52. Israel
53. Croatia
54. Honduras
55. Colombia
56. Singapore
57. Thailand
58. Greece
59. Uruguay
60. Peru
61. China
62. Botswana
63. Ukraine
64. Venezuela
65. Czech Republic
66. Tanzania
67. Romania
68. Malawi
69. Paraguay
70. Ghana
71. Slovak Republic
72. Vietnam
73. Dominican Republic

Well, since that and if I were a woman, an Italian woman, when confronted with a smiling boy with a mimosa in his hand, I think I could be dangerous.
What luck to be a man, here…

Berlusconi escorts to Gaddafi opponent: an unorthodox solution

Stories and News No. 336

I read just now in the Telegraph that Silvio Berlusconi sent escorts to Gaddafi’s rival in view of the election of 2009 African Union leader, then won by the Libyan dictator.
The British newspaper cites Nuri Al Mismari - a former aide of the latter - who explains the details of the bizarre action to Arab newspaper Ashaeq Al-Awsat, in Paris.
The Gaddafi’s opponent was then persuaded to step aside thanks to the Mubarak’s granddaughter’s job.
Al Mismari states that the situation was resolved with an unorthodox solution.
Some may rightly think: that’s anything new; we may expect everything by that man.
Someone else might add: stop talk about it, he gains power if you still attack him.
Someone else will also be able to argue: so what? He sent a couple of whores to a friend. Don’t leftists use these things? Puritans hypocrites!
And so on, as the script suggests.
Well, once and for all, let’s twist this script.
I still remember like it was yesterday - and I do not know if it's a good thing – when Indro Montanelli told Enzo Biagi that Berlusconi was in brief as a virus and had to go to the government to see the antidote.
In my humble opinion, in our country, to really realize the lowest level at which we went with Mr. B., we did not have to get rid of Silvio but rather try to indulge him even more.
I got the impression that the antidote or antibody has not yet been developed because the virus has not yet appeared in its fullest form.
How to indulge him?
That is simple: not censoring his questionable actions, but enhancing and making them, you know… official.
Let me explain it through…

The Story:

Dear Berlusconi’s enemies,
stop the fight, lay down your arms, so it is useless.
I apologize for the unpleasant image, but it's as if you tried to squeeze a pimple that is not yet mature.
The only effect you get is to infect it and make it becoming increasingly cumbersome and painful.
It is not yet time to pop that damn bubo and rejoicing on the swelling pus coming out hilarious as the red-hot lava from a thousands years old volcano.
On the contrary, we have to put the treacherous pimple that disfigures the Italic skin in a position to grow and mature at all.
It should be supported, not opposed.
And when it gets results, it should be celebrated and exalted, taking as an example, especially if the ways are not legitimate.
Otherwise, don’t you see what happens?
The unripe spot becomes inflamed and feeling oppressed it moves forward the time of holy eruption.
Let's assume, then, that the prime minister sends some escorts to a leader of another country, with the task of seducing his friend’s rival, helping him to get rid of the opponent.
Imagine that it obtains the expected goal.
Don’t be shocked, come on!
This is just an unorthodox solution; that is an original strategic/diplomatic initiative that has been successful.
Why not make it ordinary?
Think about what might happen in the future.
President Obama, in the next elections, could call Silvio and ask him to send a couple of hot girls to distract the competitor’s Republicans.
Someone said that the latter have already done to defeat Clinton with Lewinsky, this is not science fiction.
Merkel's rivals may be able to order a couple of studs to seduce her, after two big pints of beer.
Those are for the studs, of course…
Well, Italy prime minister would have some difficulty in meeting the desire of the French left to find women that can make Sarkozy forget the beautiful Carla Bruni.
Maybe Merkel’s studs may find his vicious secrets, isn’t it?
The pints should be four, but these are details.
So, instead of looking through the keyhole, why not directly break Silvio’s door?
The futures that would be ahead us are two: the pimple becomes as large as to cover the entire face, to explode like a bomb or… or we patent the Bunga Bunga and we sell it abroad.
Whatever happens, it will be a success…
