Bomb Explodes At Italian Revenue Collection Agency In Rome, One Wounded

Tyler Durden's picture

Who thought violent reprisals by "the people" are only contained to Greece. Following news earlier this week of an attempt to take the life of the Deutsche Bank CEO using an explosive package, Il Sole 24 Ore now reports that a parcel bomb has exploded in front of Equitalia - the country's revenue collection agency - in Rome. Google translated: "A parcel bomb exploded in front of Equital in Rome Ardeatina area. The police arrived on site and is investigating the Digos. The parcel was delivered by mail and during the explosion injured the hand of the director of the office." So is the European "Unabomber" the advent of the populist response against the encroaching take over of sovereignty by a small group of bureaucrats and bankers, and how long until someone dies and the class warfare moves from the drawing board to Europe's main street?

Too late.

Klinger:My mother had those. Had a premonition about Pearl Harbor. 

Radar: Did she tell anybody? 

Klinger: She didn't have it 'til December 9th.

It was bound to happen.

But it ain't right.

Killing people over money is for the birds.

Fuck it all in the ass.

Tune in, turn on, and drop out.

Is that Cameron's fault as well?

Zero Govt's picture

defnately not ...our village idiot Prime Ministers revenue chart is increasing contributions to the EU as the EU chart declines into chaotic bankruptcy

'Call Me Twat' Cameron isn't very good at picking winners. Even when the nag is flat out in the glue factory this moron backs it with even more taxpayers money!

he also increases the waffle on "austerity" while he spends more than the last bunch of State Marxists in power.. State spending is even more out of control than under Labour.. the Tories have lost the plot so badly they're more Statist than the Marxists

that's because 'Call Me Tosser' Dave was born stupid and born behind every curve. He doesn't 'get' anything. Comes with being a State run everything socialist retard ...Blighty is absolutely fuked

No taxation without elected representation !

And that's what we'll get since the echo of this whole clusterfuck is: "It's not us, it's them"

And THAT'S how you do it.  No fukking around with sign-holding and shit.  Calci nelle palle, i miei connazionali!

most likely a red flag! because of this act, nobody is permitted to carry any concealed bombs, from this moment forward!

It would be a big mistake to assume that the people from the Old world are docile sheeps. They are docile for a while, they do not have many illusions about their rulers. They do not believe that they are "exceptional". Europe was "exceptional" until World War I, after that it is just a history of deceit from rulers to its people, struggle , mass crazy movements, resistance and fights. It is only the end of the beginning maybe.

But but but, every main street media outlet has hailed how the italian people LOVE their new unelected "leaders" appointed by Goldman Sachs and EU-dictaturship. Does this mean we were all lied to again? Tell me it ain't so, tell me!

Don't be a dick, Dick. The approval rating for Monti's gov was some 74%, then dropped to 62% after his mega-law. For an austerity package, this is impressive.

This sayed, it's still Italy, with a long history of bombing - I remember how you could not put down your bag in any station without someone immediately asking if it's yours. For decades.

I suspect this was a digruntled Mafia group that dislikes the new decree about how much cash you can pay without receipt - taxes are still a bit of an issue in Italy with a submerged (i.e. tax-evading) economy of some 30% since over 150 years.

Why I suspect some lone Mafia guy? No clear message from any group claiming the resp. The claim is the most important part for politicals.

Was it a parcel of underwear? ... those are the worst ... probably Iran did it.

Now all this guy has to do is send one to Draghi and Monti....and justice will be served.

At least we finally have some good news. Unelected dictators better start checking their lunch boxes.

Tip of the iceberg folks. Wait a year for the ball to get rolling. When people can't afford basic housing, food, and health care what do you think is going to happen? Violence is not the answer - but that is likely whats coming. Desperate people do desperate things.

People with nothing to lose can not be bullied into submission. The oligarchs will put a camera on every street and hungry unemployed will thow their bombs. What a world we've made.

I guess that would explain the Black Friday gun buying extravoganza. Of course, all of those guns buyers are terrorists.  Just a note to the Feds listening, "I only fire when attacked.  I never initiate violence - only respond to it."

I'm currently shopping for my first gun (at the age of 40). I've shot plenty before and enjoy shooting for sport, but I never felt the need to own one for protection. I'm genuinely concerned this will get much worse before it gets better, and I've got a family to take care of.

My jewish lawyer friend who lives in Cabin John talked about the need to buy a gun and he's in his 60s. Another guy I know who worked for the CIA got out of Dodge (DC) and moved to Texas. Talked with a former accountant from the Pentagon just a week ago and he basically said, "this shit can't last much longer." I had just met him and he said that without any cue from me that I wasn't a sheep or was sympathetic. Shit is getting real.

In the US anyone can walk into a hospital at any time and - eventually - get service. If they can't breathe or are having chest pains, they get service faster. (Faster as opposed to first, or quickly -- I don't know what it all depends on, probably subjective medical judgment but anyway they get seen and treated and don't have to pay. So that's one obstacle down.

As far as I know most towns have food banks and shelters, so there's two more things off the list. Worst comes to worst, police pick you up, house you, feed you, you don't pay for anything.

"..the explosion injured the hand of the director of the office" - they don't make them like they used to or maybe it was just a warning

This is nothing. I just returned from Athens, the place is a powder keg waiting to explode. 


The security around Athens reminded me of Pinochet's Chile at the height of the public's discontent. This will not end well and soon.


Just as an aside, it was reported in the Greek newspapers yesterday that suicides are up 40% this year. Things are way worse than what's being reported in the west's MSM. Anyone who thinks the situation can be sustained for much longer is delutional. 

Chump's picture

It's not reported in our MSM because no average citizen gives a flying fuck about Greeks.  Incidentally, Americans' general disinterest with anything that doesn't affect their lives in the next 6 seconds is a big part of why we fully deserve what's coming.

So many government buildings around the world and so little time. MUST WORK FASTER


chaos works well for globalists to collect assets for the junk bonds they bought with stolen fiat via stooges who now have the positions of power.

Wow, in a system dripping with honesty and transparency where laws hold people equally accountable in the Western world I don't understand the need for lashing out!

Perhaps if the pig men hiding behind incorporation and elected officials like cowards actually played by their own bullshit rules people wouldn't be out for blood?

The real tragedy is the lower drones and workers end up taking the blasts for management corruption/government collusion and crony capitalists peddling mafia-fraud!

Heads they win, tails you lose -- get back to work, and take on some personal risk would ya!?

The truth is bombs are not nearly as dangerous as a microphone with a nationalist speaker in front of a large group of people.

The question everyone should be asking is why are all the pigs hiding in plain sight?

It is not "how long until someone dies" - sorry, that should read "how long until all the unelected overseers of Italy are assassinated and the country is liberated from the Goldman Sachs oppressors"?

There - fixed that little omission for you.

Cowardly governments use bombs on people, and today they use drones to deliver them- no balls at all.

A showdown in the street at noon is the high road, but sniping is halfway respectable.
