Life never ceases to surprise us, this time the merit also lies with the USA, the military / economic power of the world, which to help Abruzzo and us Abruzzo to overcome this difficult moment, has decided to allocate 50mila dollars well to solve all our problems. Perhaps they do not know that with the currency exchange those 50 thousand dollars, already of little use, become 37.658,58 € which, as the newspaper "Libero" says, would be enough to buy a medium-sized car!
To make President Obama's "blundering gaffe" worse, it was Albania that allocated 50 thousand euros for earthquake damage. This gesture is very appreciated by all of us Italians, especially because we know what the Albanian economic condition is, but we also know what the US one is. The fact is that Albania has even given us more € than the notorious USA, which does not miss the opportunity to show itself brilliant in the eyes of the world, but this time they have messed with intent. We appreciate Berlusconi's response: "Thank you but we don't need charity to face the catastrophe, we manage with our own strength and with European funds". As "Libero" defines it: "a blaze of pride that refreshes the soul and straightens the back".
Fortunately, Obama has changed the donation, but Berlusconi does not want to reject the US aid proposals: "If the United States wants to give a tangible sign of their proximity to Italy, they will be able to take responsibility for the reconstruction of cultural heritage and churches "Says our prime minister. "The United States is available for that need, that the people and the government of the United States are close to Italy," replied Obama.
Will they keep their promise? Let's hope so.
