Italian authorities are denying American claims that there is a credible terrorist threat against US citizens in Venice, Florence, Milan, and Verona, and are angry that we have the audacity to tell our citizens to be careful. Gabriele Albertini, Mayor of Milan, says, “There is no need for alarmism. There is no concrete evidence of a threat.” That’s why it was characterized as a “possibility,” Gabe. I can think of a couple other unfortunate events of which we had no credible warning, and I’m sure that with a little thought, you can too.
Hey guys, think that if any Americans die in a bomb blast in Milan in the next couple of days, the Italians will start supporting us in this little spat we’re having with Islamic Fundamentalists? Nah, we don’t either.
