Good update Mario, real good work
Thank you, Luke!
A shootout at the O.K. Corral????
This is intense
Wait and see; anyway this confrontation between a US and local military is an idea that -maybe involuntarily- gave me Jan (JN1).
Somewhat funny to have a standoff with soviet warheads at most one hour away.Something of a isn't there a better time to have this than now?Italy is about to get nuked and this is what they waste time for?
Ravelli is fearing that the "Italian" deterrent may be swept away before Washington decides to use it. Being the Stormo's Commander he do not want to see his men killed for nothing.
It is at just such moments of heightened tensions and deep uncertainty that those convinced of their own righteousness would be most tempted to "Save the Nation".
Nice job, Mario.
More or less, he believe to do the right thing. Thank you.
The Avvocato flies away...
(out of sheer curiosity: where the heck are Juventus' players now? The team was evacuated with families somewhere, say at Villar Perosa?)
As for Pertini, well, for rigid he was I think even he would have asked questions later, in such a moment.
Siete proprio italiani, ma che c*zzo, stiamo per essere cancellati dalla faccia della terra come nazione o giù di lì e voi vi preoccupate dei pallonari?
Well, football players should have returned or stayed to their hometowns since mobilization and resulting Serie A championship's stop.
The "Grandissimo coglione" is a slightly altered version of a true story about Agnelli.
In OTL Pertini lost his temper for basically anything, in TTLI've thought that he would have be massively...pissed by the GLADIO party, even more considering that they are just where De Lorenzo would have enucleato them.
Anyone care to speculate what happened to Toto Cutugno,I know it diverges from the thread but this guy was a very popular italian singer back then.Especially for people behind the Iron Curtain like my parents where and if i remember correctly he would have just released his biggest hit single in 1983 L'Italiano.So what do you think did he survive flee or die in the nuclear war or aftermath? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B51aK6RqxKs&feature=related in this timeline it would be months before the war
Ahaha, TOTO CUTUGNO. You're the #1, ivfl
You're right L'Italiano was a huge Sanremo pop hit in 1983; maybe we will see him again
