Revolution That Never Was

I admire the people of Italy for their historical past when Rome ruled a large part of the world. Of course, when it comes to waging war, the past century has not been a friend to the people of Italy. During WWII an Italian army of 250,000 invaded Egypt and it was met by about 75,000 British troops who surrounded the warriors and made most their prisoners. So, when I read stories concerning war and thunder in Italy, my mind hesitates. A group of about two dozen Italians were arrested in Venice for attempting to initiate a civil war and have the wealthy northern area of Veneto secede from the rest of Italy and become a nation. I assume this was based on a desire not to see dark skinned immigrants in THEIR city of Venice and keep Italy for the Italians.

Please do not mock these gallant soldiers for freedom. They had tank, yes, A tank, they had A cannon, yes, A cannon and they had some weapons of mass destruction known as rifles and revolvers. They intended to invade St.Mark’Square in Venice to announce the formation of their new government. At this moment, they are working on a revolutionary idea in jail. National Front leader, Marino Breitane announced the group was “fighting for the freedom of the people.”‘

I am not yet quite clear which people and how do I know these people belong to “the people?”
