Trees slaughtered, Camp Darby made more potent, by Manlio Dinucci

The first trees have already been cut, the others marked with paint: 937 trees are now being cut down in the "protected" natural area of the San Rossore Regional Park between Pisa and Livorno.

Even if the U.S. command promises to replant more trees than those cut, the (...)

NATO, super-headquarters as expandable as war, by Manlio Dinucci
