Are people just crazy, or is there some sort of high-level logic I'm not getting here? I have no doubt some hairbrained Italians are going to take up these terrorists' offer and actually try to have a demonstration, but does anyone expect that such demonstration means anything but squat, when they're done with a gun up Italians' heads? Does anyone expect that Berlusconi's going to give a crap? And how exactly are the terrorists going to measure the degree by which Italians comply with this idea? If one guy in Milan waved a sign around tomorrow, does that count?Or maybe they're still trying to regain their bearings after realizing that Westerners have more spine than they do.
