The New Year’s Eve madness is already begun worldwide, so it’s time for me to add my personal message for today.
My best wishes for 2014 are for Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone, two italian soldiers detained in India – according to international treaties and laws they should be returned to our country, a simple fact that the federal government of India still have to understand.
Being what I am, my thoughts are with the italian troops – deployed all around the world under the UN flag. Lebanon, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Aden Gulf and many other places. Quite frankly, the word “peacekeeping” is overrated but the work of our soldiers has to be respected.
Happy New Year to everybody!
