Taliban Information


To start off with I want to say a few things about Mastrogiacomo. He must come home. His family has my solidarity. The Government must do all it can.
Having said that I can say that it is disgusting that the Country(?) is mobilizing only if the person kidnapped is a journalist.
And that it doesn’t bat an eyelid if 4 workers are assassinated every day for the lack of safety in a work place. If three people at a time are shot in Campania.
When it was known that the driver of Mastrogiacomo had been killed we all let out a sigh of relief as we feared the worst.
But, fortunately, it was just the driver. To allow one of our journalists to be in Afghanistan while there’s a war going on with our army and our weapons. Well, it means going out to look for trouble.
If I were a Taliban, I would kidnap him straight away. It’s a tiny investment with a great media pay-back. If they kidnap ten journalists like Mastrogiacomo the war is finished in a week.
I’ve got a solution for the future. Send other special envoys to Kabul: Mieli for historical reconstruction, De Bortoli for economic analysis, Belpietro to take photos, Rossella for gossip about burkas, Severgnini on his bicycle for every day news about the customs of Italians abroad. They would certainly end up kidnapped, but the Taliban would let them go straight away.
They would understand on their own that no one would pay the ransom. After that an Italian journalist going to Afghanistan would be safe from ever being kidnapped.

What happened to that husband and wife that, as far as I know, are still in jail in Kenya?

Aren't they Italian citizens as well?

Should we be moved to pity only for journalists?

Don't get me wrong, I hope that Mastrogiacomo will be freed asap but, what about the others that did not get as much coverage?

i agree

But I would also add that send the Ambassador of Muslim in Italy ( I never knew such a post existed) Send the head of Muslim community in Italy the directors of mosques, the ambassadors of Muslim countries as well


I asked them to protest the coward act of dropping 2000lbs bombs on women & children
I asked them to protest at the phosphoring of al Falluja, the city of 150 mosques
i asked them to protest protest protest at this butchering
i asked the Italian journalists to prote
i asked al Haliburton channel AKA as al jazeera of the Las Vegas of Middle East to let me protest
I asked the church and the clergy to protest and they told me do not worry it will be over in 2 weeks

So I ask why is it that I am told that 100 mayors of the world cities and all the above are protesting for an Italian journalist but none of them care about the women, children, the old, sick in afghanistan who are being cowardly killed by bombs so much more powerful than the mud it is built from

Yes one fact I was missing and that is Yes the Italian soldiers are butchering the Afghans!
