Hero’s Body Flown Home

Agent Nicola Calipari, who was instrumental in securing the release of Italian journalist Giuliana Sgrena, was needlessly killed by the US occupying forces in Iraq as they approached a checkpoint.

Of course, the self-proclaimed messiah of democracy, promised a full inquiry to this latest incident… but we know from previous experience that the findings of all US government inquiries should be taken with a fistful of salt, pepper and MSG.

The US forces said that the victims’ car approached the checkpoint at high speed. Ms Sgrena claimed that what the Americans are saying are blatant lies. What we do know for sure is that a hero died performing his duties with full commitment and undying sense of responsibility.

To the family and friends of the late Agent Calipari, my deepest condolences goes to you. It’s sad to see yet another innocent life being taken in this unnecessary conflict.
