Italian anarchists kneecap nuclear executive and threaten more shootings
An anarchist group claimed responsibility on Friday for kneecapping an Italian nuclear engineering executive and warned it would strike another seven times at the firm's parent company, Finmeccanica.
In a four-page letter sent to an Italian newspaper, the group, calling itself the Olga Nucleus of the Informal Anarchist Federation-International Revolutionary Front, said two of its members had shot Roberto Adinolfi, the CEO of Ansaldo Nucleare, in Genoa on Monday.

Europe has been in a tailspin for quite a while now, our politicians each following their own adgenda have kicked the can down the road for as long as possible. They are running out of road and luckily (For them) the majority are too blind to see or simply refuse to acknowlege the looming wall of uncertainty and chaos in their path.
What worries me personally is not the impending financial collapse or the implosion of the entire linked European financial system.
It is the measures that TPTB will instigate to deflect such a catastrophe to protect their own interests and ensure their own continuation at all costs.
The house of cards is about to fall. The illusion of democracy that we all laboured under is crumbling like the Parthenon.
The worst part of all this huge mess is the complete absence of hope. I'm all out.
Bring it on, whatever may come.
ROME — Italy increased security Thursday at 14,000 sites, and assigned bodyguards to protect 550 individuals after a nuclear energy company official was shot and letter bombs directed to the tax collection agency.
.Under the enhanced measures, Interior Minister Anna Maria Cancellieri deployed 20,000 law enforcement officers to protect individuals and sensitive sites. In addition, 4,200 military personnel already assigned throughout Italy will be redeployed according to new priorities.
In at least a couple of countries, there are DECREASES on taxes on the rich (most notably in the UK where rates went from 50% ro 45% in the last budget) even while they are accelerating deep cuts on programs the middle and lower classes depend on.
Here In Britain - especially in Scotland which despises the conservatives - there is growing discontent at the conservative party who are so out of touch with reality it is unbelievable. They are the very definition of elitists.
