The word to the readers: which past and above all what future for the "peace" missions abroad?

(To David Rossi)

Dear readers, with the missions in Iraq and Afghanistan now at the end credits, a reflection is required: What is the future of Italian "peace" missions abroad? From the political point of view, the many missions of peace keeping (and in some cases peace enforcing) How were they managed? If you have had direct experience, what opinion have you made of not only political motivations but also of field management? In short, we are the usual with the military who "know their stuff" and "distracted" politicians?

Avoid comments like "money is thrown" and "take away the bread from mouth to the poor" because it is from the times of the Crimean War (1853-1856) that our country takes part in international coalitions with non-conquest purposes: certain interventions they have such a strong political justification that the hysterical screams on costs deserve the answer of Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I do not give damn!

Also avoid comments such as: "I do not publish so much" or "write only what you like", because then "if I turn around" I put you in the article and make the figure of the chocolate ...

The obligation to stay between 200 and 300 words is mandatory.
