Prodi, in a letter published Saturday on the front-page of the Milan daily Corriere della Sera, called the Iraqi occupation the continuation of an illegitimate war that is incapable of restoring peace.
In the letter, Prodi was identified as a top EU official, but his words are believed to reflect his position as a leader of the Olive Tree, a grouping of Italian political parties ranging from former Communists to centrists.
I think it is safe to assume that Al-Qaeda will put off any serious attack until the election campaign is in full-swing. After all, why mess with a strategy that works? Fortunately for both the people of Italy and the TigerHawk family, which has scheduled a wonderful Roman holiday this June, elections aren't scheduled until the spring of 2006.
