Italy declares war to India

Italy could realistically declare war to India in the next few weeks. As an alternative, the European Country known for his fashion industry, rather than for its military capabilities, may just give up the life of two of its soldiers, dismiss all the army personnel and resign its Sovereignty.

Antefacts

Two Italian Navy-Seals have been arrested  yesterday by Indian police, in the state of Kerala. The two officers were serving, as part of a team of six, in official duty on an Italian flagged oil-tanker ship. When, at the large of Indian coasts — but in international waters — the Italian ship has been approached by a pirate boat with armed men on board, the Italian officers intervened to prevent the attack. At the same time, a fishermen boat called the Indian Coast Guard lamenting that two of its crew members have been shot dead by some armed people sailing on an oil-tanker, inside Indian national waters.

Tricked by the Indian police and by their own (or their superiors) poor judgement, the Italians ended up in Indian police custody, and may be tried in the next days for murder of first degree.

Death penalty

Italian claims of immunity for its officers clashed with a raged reaction of the local population. Now, the two soldiers face a concrete risk to be sentenced to death by a local Indian court of law. And the federal Indian government has no political will to interfere: the party at government would never let Italianity of Sonia Gandhi to become once again a weapon in the hands of opposition parties.

If they would have been Israeli soldiers

First of all, IDF would have never withdrawn in front of any request to hand two of its soldiers to a foreign power. Tzahal commandos would have fought bravely, rather than resign their weapons to a group of mustached Indian local-police officers.  In the unfortunate event that two soldiers would have been captured, a Mossad operation would have freed them without wasting too much time.

Aircraft carriers

Americans would have immediately moved two or three aircraft carriers in the Indian Ocean, they would have deployed a bunch of nuclear submarines around strategic objectives in the Indian peninsula and would have sent some B2 Spirit stealth nuclear bombers over the skies of New Delhi. Most likely, Indians would have thought twice before arresting a US Marine soldier.

Italiani brava gente

Italy has two aircraft carriers, named after an (in)famous general (Garibaldi) and a fat, populist and powerful former prime minister (Cavour, not Berlusconi!). However to save some dimes, Italian government decided recently to reduce the number of F35 Lightning II to be deployed on the two battleships. So, Italy does not seem ready to send its carriers, even because Indian police could easily impound them!

War to India

Steffan de Mistura, Italian Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister is a former Swedish diplomat in the service of United Nations. De Mistura rushed today to India to meet high rank government officials, and to offer some monetary compensation to the families of the two killed fishermen. Interesting enough, Italy official position is that (1) India has no jurisdiction, (2) soldiers are immune, and (3) the two Italian soldiers did not kill the Indian fishermen. In spite of claiming these points, Italian government would be ready to pay a couple of million euros, to get back its two servicemen.

Should the monetary offer be refused, or accepted, the Indian judicial system seems well determined in prosecuting, and eventually executing officers Massimiliano Latorre and Salvatore Girone. Italy would have then no other choice than to declare war to India: not an easy task though, considering Indian oversized army and population, its nuclear arsenal and the delicate regional equilibria.

Should war occur, on which side would you stand?

  1. Italy will not start any military operation against India, and the same is valid for both the US and Israel. Indian army is the second in Asia after the Chinese forces and there are no sides interested in such conflict. In fact, the USA will not let Italy to start such war because it would imply the participation of NATO (read here “USA”) in it.

    • NATO would be involved only if India would attack first. This means that Italy should convince it North Atlantic allays that the arrest — and eventual execution — of its two marines was an act of war. Otherwise, Italy should enter in war by itself. We may imagine different scenarios: Pakistan, historical enemy of India and fellow nuclear-weapons holder, would maybe join Italy. Following the killing of Osama Bin Laden, the relationship between Pakistani and US governments has been very troubled. Moreover, recent events in Afghanistan would also put this country against the US. Obama may then decide to rebuild relationship with those two countries, focusing on a common enemy. Or could rather stand beside India, the stronger challenge to China in the area. Israel could take advantage of the war to attack Iran. Turkey will take over Syria. South Korea will launch an attack to North Republic, or vice-versa. And Tokyo will launch a nuclear weapon program, to join war in a year or so. In Canada civil war will explode between French speaking part and English speaking part of the country. Sarkozy will then attack British Columbia to support Quebec. Russia will attack the European Nordic countries… and so on…

      • Italy and its allies will think 100 times attacking India.Russia and china will definitely intervene and side with India and by the way most NATO like UK,France will stay numb as they have important deals with India.It will definitely lead to WW3.India’s economy is pacing very fast and Italy’s is degrading and don’t think that India will keep quiet.Italy without any allies can’t touch India with anything it had in present.If Italy sends Typhoons India will defend with Sukhois

      • AT FIRST ARE NOT NAVY SEAL’S BUT MARINE INFANTRY.
        IT’S CLEARLY THE INVOLVMENT OF AGUSTA WESTLAND BUSINESS.
        BUT THIS GROW CAN SHOW ALSO OTHER POSSIBLE BIG STRATEGIC PURPOSE. AT FIRST, POSSIBLE SOLLICITATION OF ITALIAN MASS AGAINST CURRENT UNSTABLE POLITICS WITH SIGNIFICANT EFFETCS ON ENTIRE EUROPEAN UNION SYSTEM, ALSO A POSSIBLE DEFAULT.

        AT SECOND, MORE BIG, IS THE POSSIBLE ENLARGE OF PARTS INVOLVED, IN THIS CASE NATO, THAT CAN PROVIDE OCCASION TO PAKISTAN TO OPEN A PATH IN HIS INDIA REVENGED TERRITORIES, A PATH DIRECT TO THE IRANIAN BORDER, HERE, FREE FROM SA MISSILES….
        SAID ALL. BYE BYE MARò MORITURI TE SALUTANT

      • Not sure about the lion(India stay nice with this animal, since could liberate from UK juggle, and that’s not easy) It’s clear who the rabbit is, it’s Italy of course! (I’m italian btw).
        It’s clearly evident since Gladio and Stay Behind ops.
        Rabbits operations.

  2. LEO FROM ITALY: I AGREE ABSOLUTELY WITH VALUTATION OF ITALIAN CARRIERS NAME!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’M SURPRISE THAT SAMEONE FOREIGN HAS CLEAR IDEA ABOUT VALUE OF OUR PAST

    […the rest of the comment has been removed, since it was containing some politically controversial statements…]

    • Garibaldi was not loved by his own king, nor does have a good fame with many Italians nowadays. Maybe not (in)famous, certainly controversial. Or not?

  3. GARIBOLDI JUST A SIMPLE CRIMINAL ADVENTURER, UNDR MASSONERY MONEY OF BRITISH CORONA THAT DON’T WAN’T PAY FEES RIGHT TO BORBONS KING FOR SICILY SULFUREUS CAVES, THAT BRITONS NEED FOR USE AS EXPLOSIVE FOR PANAMA CHNANNEL THEN MASSONS TAKE 2 PIGEON IN SAME MOMENT, ALL RECENT ITALY HISTORY IS UNDER MASSON REGIA

  4. Piss off you assholes. Italy govt. actually knows that those 2 fucking soldiers indeed killed the fishermen & just to raise their name in italian military,created a hype of a pirate attack.
    The generous indian govt. still let those 2 soldiers go to italy for celebrating christmas & new year.
    You suckers just eat noodles & shut up your shitty mouth.
    The time has gone when Italy was considered to be a military power.

  5. India has initiated a fair process of trial and gave the marines an equal opportunity to contest their arrest in the court of law. The process was so fair that the marines were given an opportunity to return home twice. It is not fair and good on your part to criticize India and her police who have done their duty. Request to remove some tongue in the cheek remarks made against India, her Police and Judiciary in your article.

    • IF INDIA IS THIS HIGH MIL POWER, WHY BUY ARMS FOR ALL OTHERS? AND ALSO MUST REMENBER NO BIG EXIST IN THE WORLD WITHOUT KWNOLEDGE AND RESPECT OF INTERNATIONAL LAW. REPLYNG TO VS, AN ATTACK TO ITALY START A NATO ANSWER, DUE ITALY IN QUIETE MENBER, THEN AN USA REPLY, CONVENIENT FOR INDIA? ALSO, BUT WHAT INDIA EXPORT TO BE THIS BIG FITTICE POWER CREATED JUST TO PLAY IN THE CAPITALISM BUSINESS MARKET ROLE????? AGAIN, DON’T FORGET THAT YOU HAVE HAD AN ITALIAN EX WIFE PREMIER, AT END ITALIANS ARE NO TOO STUPID TO AFFORD AN ESCALATION, AGAIN, NO NEED FOR A WAR, WE HAVE JUST CONQUERED INDIA, BY OUR SONIA GANDI…..OR NOT?

  6. .india is equipped with most long range atomic missile that india could attack italy from a warship in indian ocean and it owns thowsands of atom bombs . And in reverse italy would use crackers and bombs that would blast in some of the italian ass itself.

  7. India and China are the most valuable country in this world.EU,USA and Japan are coming in India to invest their huge money in Steel plants,hydro-electric sector,railway etc.Italy,just wait for your worst time. for stupidity and annoying attitude!!!!

  8. Any War is baseless. In troubled times when daily cost of living is skyrocketing normal people who do not sit over costly wines and n-course meals should only think about working industriously for their families and their nation.India and Italy both have rich and ancient history. I am sure common sense would prevail and an amicable settlement over the dispute would be reached.life once taken away cannot be returned no matter what you do. Also in the same breath CRIME AND COLD BLOODED MURDER will never pay……

    So if Italy decides to protect two murderers then it will be for the whole world to see their character.

  9. What! Italy has guts to attack on India. There is no comparison.
    Italy can war as well that’s pretty strange for me. India can smash Italy with in a day or two. Actually Indian government don’t need military power to win. If one billion Indian will start pe on a border of Italy there will be flood and everything will be washed away there army as well.

  10. This is what i hate. A bunch of Half wits discussing matters they don’t have any fkn idea about. “For your information” No country except pakistan is mad enough to attack India. Especially USA. Y? good question. Because most of the people running USA today are Indians. Attacking their home country would have real drastic effects. That’s why USA doesn’t ever involve itself in Indian internal affairs. Canada, USA, UK is filled with top level Indians. Making any negative move on India would lead to lot of internal political and civil issues.

  11. 1 They were unarmed fishermen. Italian soldiers thought it was a pirate boat.
    2 This happened in international water. India had no authority to keep the italian soldiers in their country. Italian soldiers’ superiors made a mistake ordering them to obey. This accident should be judged by an international court.
    3 Italian newspapers and government have never talked about any possibilities of starting a war. There are too many economic interests between the two country (Italy buy a lot of products from India).
    Also, Italian army surely is not strong enough to win against India, but do you seriously believe that a country where people still die of hunger would be able to keep a war on?
    Sorry. My English is surely not as good as yours.

  12. Being an Italian national in love with an Indian guy, I would never want to see a war between the two countries. But it would never happen anyway. There’s no natural gas, oil or other resources that Italy wants to steal from India, and vice versa. Nowadays, war is just planned if economic interests occur. Starting a war for two lives (fishermen or soldiers, doesn’t matter) wouldn’t certainly be worth it. National pride either. I mean, Italy is well known as the weakest European country (after Greece, maybe), and for its lack of international credibility. India presents itself as a superpower, but nuclear bombs are not enough when billion people are starving. So the only losers of this diplomatic battle will be common people willing to travel and make businesses between the two countries. Or trying to get married, in my case ;P

    • This is the sweetest and most reasonable comment I have ever read until now. Your words are wise, and I wish more people would think as you do.

      I wish you all the best for your wedding! My warmest wishes for a future of happiness and joy!

  13. hey duds, dont commnt extrimly for any contry.india and italy have a frindly relationship,it will have been for ever.both countries have their rich historical back ground and military power.i m n indian,i proud to my countrys power,and i also respsct italy and its power. In this case indian court and govt doing only thoes which shoul be done for a citizen.and i hope result would be beter for all.we have also a good relationship with USA and israil.we have neucler deal with with US and we have powerful inteligenc agencys like RAW,which is same as moosad.at last, INDIA is an powerful and peaceloving country

  14. Hello friends, I’m italian end I love india and indians. There is no reason to compare military power between us, we will never be at war, we are allied against war, against terrorism, against tyranny and against sea piracy. I’m sorry for your dead fishermen, but I think that they are victims, with our two soldiers, of the piracy problem. I hope our governments will join in a friendly solution so we can work together for a better future. 🙂

  15. Indians and Italians fought together in World War 2 against Nazis, Indians played a pivotal role in the liberation of Italy from the Nazis, 2.5 million Indians volunteered to fight to liberate Europe despite suffering indignation at the hands of their British rulers, this was the largest volunteer army in mankind’s entire history, fighting for the liberation of others, more than 20000 Indians gave their lives to save Italy. They were the only allied army who did not rape, loot and plunder italians while British, US and other armies raped Italian women despite being liberators. Indian soldiers guarded apartments against rapist allied soldiers and many Indians defended Italian women from lustful allied soldiers by saying they were their sisters.

    Italians loved, cared and cherished Indian heroes and showed how big a heart Italians had and how hospitable they were to their saviors from the east.

    With such an emotional history, with such a beautiful and cherished respect between our people, you have the nerve to talk of war between Italy and India?, you are filth!

  16. What a crap article. war for such a small issue. I think writer has gone crazy and if in case italy declares a war against India it would be suicide for italians. I believe this matter will be sorted out very soon.
    Being an Indian, I believe India never ever will attack italy bcoz India is peace loving country. We young Indians won’t let it happen bcoz we love italian girls. hehe. love from india to italian girls.

  17. Italy with it two light aircraft carriers carrying about a dozen av 8s each and an airforce with around a hundred fighters and a good yet not comparable navy declare war on india. Politicaly and to alesser extend economicaly too italy is leader but in a military conflict it can.never stand its ground without nato which i.dont think will support such an action.
