There are wars that go down in history in complete silence. They go on and on, and you won’t realize it neither in a hundred years that a war is going on in a particular country, simply because you don’t see it.
Sometimes hatred is like the lava that flows inside the volcano's grooves but when the flow goes up it creates a bulge and finally finds a way out. The orange glowing fluid pops up and such a visual event it makes you realize the war is still there because hatred stirs up strife and conflict and you can tell it’s still there just by watching people walking down the street or while driving their cars to go to work.
Italian police on Tuesday arrested Giuseppe Orsi, the CEO of Italian defense group Finmeccanica, in connection with a probe into suspected corruption at the firm, a company spokesman said.
Finmeccanica CEO Giuseppe Orsi is under investigation in a case involving the payment of €500 million ($670 million) in bribes for the sale of 12 helicopters to the government of India.
Finmeccanica S.p.A. is the second largest industrial group and the largest of the hi-tech industrial groups based in Italy. It operates in seven sectors: Aeronautics, Helicopters, Space, Defence and Security Electronics, Defence Systems, Energy and Transportation. The company has offices in over 100 countries. It is partially owned by the Italian government, which holds about 30% of Finmeccanica's shares.
Now a public official arresting another public official as a government-run company CEO, it means putting personal or other kind of interests before those of the government. The most immediate reasonable question would be: “If you arrest someone who works for a government company and you work for the government too, in whose interest are you working for?”.
I mean I understand the concept of Universal justice and certainly crime must be prosecuted. Although here we are talking about a crime perpetrated by a government official into a foreign country in the process of pursuing a national interest, and it might happen when a government is about to sell helicopters to another government.
In the real world the prosecutor who ordered the arrest of Mr. Orsi should had been prosecuted and arrested right away.
Such a self-inflicted wound by the Italian government against itself by indicting a government-run company such as Finmeccanica, it's the signal that not only the conflict level within the Italian institutional complex is skyrocketing, but a real civil war rampage is going on inside Italy's civil and political institutions.
Let's put the case a similar situation happens in the U.S. Probably that same prosecutor would had been court-martialed the same night he signed the arrest warrant of the CEO: No trial, no jury, just straight execution. Or he would had probably been gunned down by some tea party activist. No American judge would ever even think to prosecute a government-run company's ceo while on his business duties of selling American goods to a foreign government. Never ever. Not in a billion years nor in a science fiction movie. You may call it being a team player on that or call it whatever you want, but you don’t arrest a government-run-company's ceo for suspicious bribery on a foreign country. Why? Because you play in the same team retard! And if you go against your own country, you go against your own economy, your own community, your own people and ultimately yourself too. What kind of justice is this?
A government prosecutor should prosecute crimes in the government’s best interests and in the wider picture in the interest of justice. Although here pursuing this crime isn't in the government best interest.
Quiet the contrary. Actually it's against the government best interest to stop a billion euros deal that could had empowered Italy's economy.
Besides there’s jurisdiction's problem here because if the crime took place in India you have a jurisdiction limit that would had stopped yourself from going forward with your judiciary intent. So the jurisdiction issue would had stopped any average dude in his prosecuting activity. So the will to go on is a strong psychological motivation I call hate.
Second of all there’s the little detail the man you are prosecuting is in practice a government official. Did you ever play in a football team? In what country a government would leave one of its public official prosecuting another public official who also happens to represent enormous economic interests of both men’s country and its economic wealth?
I ll tell you what country: no country. At least not on this planet !
This arrest is the signal of a huge state of conflict within the Italian institutional and political assets which can only worsen with Italy's political elections approaching next month.
This latest judiciary events are however to be considered just the tip of the iceberg of a major institutional crisis that Italy is undergoing since the end of the Cold War.
Before the end of the Soviet Union, Italian institutions were propped up by major international interests and so were its internal political dynamics that in practice it reflected the international picture.
Since the Berlin wall crumbled, the Italian people's feelings went back to 1945, and ancient grudges and old rivalries came back up. Italy is a country were family feuds can go on for centuries and even millennia. World war II is over, Cold War is over, Communism is over, nonetheless Italy is still stuck on left and right. Communism and Fascism. Communists and Fascists in Italy are still on and they fight each other every single day as their personal civil war is still alive and well and still going on in the streets of Italy and in its corridors of power.
Grudge and resentment is today's energy for the politicians of this ancient country. Under the political point of view, the civil war ain’t finished in 1945, in fact it’s still alive and well and it prospers thanks to all political parts, which are trying to destroy each other on a daily basis because hatred is their common ground, the spring where they quench their thirst. Otherwise you wouldn’t be able to explain such a wacky move as indicting a public official for suspecting bribery to a foreign government official while on his duty to sell goods for your own country’s wealth.
That’s absolutely and completely insane.
Italy went completely berserk, because such a masochistic move means nobody cares about nothing. And that’s exactly Italy's civil war’s picture. There are countries where certain events like civil war for example, have such a huge impact in the people's mind and heart that they stay on for years and years despite the external appearance. I think since fascism ended and the civil war began, Italy did not find its way out of it and it got stuck into this brutal fraternal never-ending conflict.
So until a real Peace Process would start to stop the internal conflict among these different factions, Italy won’t be able to define itself as a real nation. Indeed Italy is not a nation yet because in Italy today peace is not in sight. Every political party is at war with the other one.
At war. The objective of each of them is to destroy their own political or personal enemy.
Not their adversaries.Their enemies.
It’s like if Italy is a different country respect to any other country in the world. Even in Syria sooner or later the civil war will end and things will go back to their normal course.
In Italy the civil war goes on since 1943, now we are in 2013.
Italy completely ignores what the meaning of national interest is. It’s complete anarchy.
What kind of foreign investor would ever want to put his/her money in a country where anarchy reigns?
I ll tell you what kind of investor: nobody. (Unless you sell weapons )
How can a real government allow such a financial disaster to happen? What's its own purpose? How much hatred you feel by willing to destroy your own country?
You can't even call it terrorism because the perpetrator is a public prosecutor, a public official who is still in charge because he's got the public consent.
If you read today's Italian newspapers the arrest of Giuseppe Orsi is considered by the public opinion like business as usual.
Is such a weirdness possible?
An entire country goes berserk and nobody says nothing.
