Italy has hardly been a world power since the times of Ceasar so where does Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi get off talking on his mobile telephone during a photo session for NATO world leaders? He turned his back on Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel (I don't think it is the first time Italy has turned it's back on Germany) and ignored the others, including Liar-bore's Gordie Brown and the new US President Alabama or whatever his name is. The call continued for over 8 minutes and even went on during the brass band that was there to welcome them all.
Italians ignorant? Never........ In the end the photograph went ahead without the ignoramous.
So what was he talking about that was so important? According to Italy's ANSA news agency, the Italian leader was ordering in a salami and cheese pizza and some cheap red wine for his private feast that evening.
Now if NATO was wondering where to dump it's nuclear arsenal now it's not needed, despite loving pasta, I have a suggestion.
