    You mean the way he forced his way OUT of the car after his bodyguards bundled him in, at a rally against him? yea sounds very natural that in a hostile environment where you have just been attacked and are bleeding, that you force your way out of your armoured car to pose for the media...

    Let me put it this way.. I trust Bush way more than I trust Berlosconi...

    Can you show me any examples of the American right being as destructive as those groups associating themselves on the left side of political dissent are documented to be?

    He is a man that desires the love of the people more than anything else.
    It was only expected from him to react that way, to show everyone that he's alright.

    I'm just glad that he didn't get badly injured, but still, the criminal should be punished to the full extent of the law.

    I'm not sure what types of examples you are looking for. Show me examples of the left doing these things you are talking about so I can get a better idea.

    And it has begun.

    BBC News - Attack on Berlusconi 'premeditated'

    Since the incident, pages on social networking sites praising the attacker have been joined by thousands of people.

    Mr Maroni accused them of "inciting hostility" towards Mr Berlusconi and said the government was considering taking legal action against them.

    In October, Italian officials opened an inquiry into a Facebook group called "Let's kill Berlusconi", which had more than 16,000 members.
    The interior minister stood up in parliament and blamed the internet.. I see a clampdown on free speech in Italy coming the next few months. Funny how Berlosuconi has been threatening for months to do something like this because people on the internet dare post pictures of him and his buddies having sex with hookers.

    Speaking of general activity during protests and such, Left wing groups tend to be much more violent.

    Anti-G20 protesters rampaged through the city centre of Pittsburgh tonight, smashing up shops and throwing rocks at police, as officers used tear gas and baton-charges in an attempt to bring them under control.

    In riots which continued through evening rush hour, about 300 protesters were reported to have remained from an initial crowd of 2,000 in Bloomfield, Pittsburgh’s Little Italy.

    Frustrated in their attempts to reach the venue where world leaders are meeting the crowd, many of whom wore face-masks and armed themselves with rocks, broke windows at fast-food restaurants, a BMW dealership and a bank in the area, about a mile from the fenced-off convention centre.

    Now juxt oppose that with the 'tea party' in DC over the summer. And you tell me which one was more violent?

    This all started with the shoe thrower.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.
