of course this news here this is immediately linked to a certain row,
and will heavily weigh in the complex work in sorting out the recent
diplomatic defeat

(In italy "conspiracy theories", called "dietrologia", literally
"behind-the-scenes-logy", (a very fitting term IMHO) are much more
refined, up to being an actual tool of trade in the political arena, as
one can expect from Machiavelli's country; rumormongering here IS a very
fine art)

Best regards from Italy,
dott. Piergiorgio.

from Russia.

Does Bofors make Torpedoes? (Ducks into bunker.)

AFAIK bofors isn't into the modern torpedo industry; but on torpedo
industry, I must point that the W in WASS stand for Whitehead....
