Really, that’s what these people are saying:
“An Italian hasn’t won the Nobel Peace Prize since 1907,” said Giammario Battaglia, a 36-year-old lawyer who helped start the initiative a few months ago. “We think it’s a good moment.”
He appears to be serious.
The group contends that Mr. Berlusconi, operating behind the scenes and using his close friendship with Prime Minister Vladimir V. Putin of Russia, helped end the conflict between Russia and Georgia last summer. “He saved human lives,” Mr. Battaglia said.
Let’s be clear. If I ever meet Silvio Berlusconi, I – Mark Blacknell – will slap him like his mother apparently didn’t when he was a child. This man is a clown of the lowest order. One that Italy, in its seemingly perpetual commitment to governance as envisioned by a 14 year old, has decided to make Prime Minister. Multiple times. Seriously, these people conquered the rest of of Europe?
