I reckon this could be only time in recorded history that a smoker gets the suite whlie the wowser non-smokers get to wallow on floors 10 and less.
I am in a suite and, get this, the bath is in the middle.
It is filling as I type.
Anyhoo, dunno what I think of the whole Guiliana Sgrena mess. Ya for sure she is a turdy commie pain in the arse, no doubt, but she got kidnapped by violent jackasses, held for a month against her will - nobody can will that, surely - and a man who saved her died in her arms in a car getting shot at by American troops only minutes away from Baghdad airport.
She is not an impartial person and I do not believe her judgement - lousy before hand since she lerv lerved her "brave Iraqi resistance of kidnapping filth" - could possibly be reliable now.
So I do not care to listen to her and I do not believe she was targetted - I will be appalled if she was.
I want to hear from other folks.
But one of the other folks is dead cos of shots fired by Yanks.
And that is a fact.
Joy nails the awfulness of this and the real need for the Americans to get it together to treat Italy with care and respect as a result of this awfulness. Her tone is perfect.
Italy does not need another whitewashy investigation that absolves the Yanks from all responsibility, just like that plane flyign through the cable holding up the cable car incident in Aviano a whlie back, amemba?
You gotta treat your allies right.
