This article, that comes in italian, is an abstract of blog "Trials of the Secret Services", survey on the geopolitics, economic policy and information mysteries





In the seventies, Israeli intelligence infiltrated in Italy and proposed to the Red Brigades a good supply of arms and munitions to destabilize those countries that had good relations with the Arabs of the Middle East. In return, they asked only the Brigades bring out their subversive maneuvers. The number of death or, more generally, the social consequences didn’t matter; what mattered was the international political set upheaval. Moreover, beyond the personal judgments, Israel, in those years, had already showed to excel in strategic-military capabilities and crimes against humanity, in spite of the resolutions of the United Nation and basic humanitarian principles. Based on what we learn from investigative reports, the Red Brigades would have refused categorically. We should ask ourselves why a country born conventionally less than thirty years before possessed such a military and financial force that he could afford to attack and conquer, but this query would lead us to the role of the League of Nations and, particularly, to the England’s responsibilities; it would turn away us from the objective of this research.

The news reaches to us by an information process, not already through communication; which may seem trivial, but it isn’t so. Information follows a kind of one-way traffic, it isn’t born to be reworded by the receiver, it is closed, whereas communication would have to be centered above the interaction and the dialogue: the table of train times gives information, it isn’t debatable and it can’t bear relations. Similarly, a television news or  a paper inform users and document the facts, according to the hypothesis of truth. Who can say, for example, what happened, that day, to the ship X of company Y, in Gulf of Aden? Who drew up the news? In short, which is the real source?

In this regard, it is beneficial for us to read an illuminating Aldo Giannuli’s contribution:

We all remember the imagines that kicked off the insurrection against Ceaușescu’s regime, broadcast by Austrian TV, that is the piles of half-naked corpses with a hideous gash badly sutured along the sternum: the dead caused by the repression of the regime against the Hungarian minority in Timisoara. We also remember live imagines of the Falklands war: British tanks that were moving fast on a very green scenery, in an unreal absence of fighting signs. Well, the bodies of Timisoara belonged to alcoholic beggars, dead for the exceptional cold in those days and to whom autopsy had been done quickly (here the cause of that cut barely sutured); and British tanks were portrayed during the exercises of the year before in Scotland.

On the same plan, we could position US attempts to justify its military presence in Iraq at the time of the wars of the Gulf: Saddam – people say –  was about to acquire weapon of mass destruction that would have imperiled the entire Middle East region... We are speaking about that same Saddam whom US, previously, had supported in the war against Iran.

In conclusion, all that is sensational has nothing to do with the truth, it's just a brilliant and specious metaphor that, as such, needs interpretation and savvy interpreters, cynical and as astute as those who conceived.
