Grazie, Italia!

IN terms of the desaparacidos of Argentina, justice may be slow, but some seems to be coming this a-way soon.
Angela Maria Aieta was seized in 1976 shortly after her activist daughter was imprisoned, and Giovanni Pegoraro was abducted together with his daughter Susanna in 1977.

It is suspected that Ms Pegoraro, who was pregnant at the time, gave birth to a daughter before being killed and that the infant was one of hundreds of children born to political prisoners and given away to childless military couples. Argentine newspapers say Ms Pegoraro's daughter lives in the city of Mar del Plata.

Italy is trying Jorge Eduardo Acosta, Alfredo Ignacio Astiz, Jorge Raul Vildoza, Antonio Vanek and Hector Antonio Febres, in absentia in Roman court for the kidnapping, torture and murder of the above people with dual Argentine-Italian citizenship during Argentina's "dirty war" against its own people.

When a government declares war on its own citizens (or on the citizens of a country it occupies- are you listening, Mr. Bush?), there is no such thing as too much justice.
