“La commedia è finite." [The comedy is ended.]Ruggero Leoncavallo
KUALA LUMPUR: INTELLIGENCE analysts in the United States had already concluded that Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down by an air-to-air missile, and that the Ukrainian government had had something to do with it.This corroborates an emerging theory postulated by local investigators that the Boeing 777-200 was crippled by an air-to-air missile and finished off with cannon fire from a fighter that had been shadowing it as it plummeted to earth.In a damning report dated Aug 3, headlined “Flight 17 Shoot-Down Scenario Shifts”, Associated Press reporter Robert Parry said “some US intelligence sources had concluded that the rebels and Russia were likely not at fault and that it appears Ukrainian government forces were to blame”...
Recitar! Mentre preso dal delirio,
non so più quel che dico,
e quel che faccio!
Eppur è d'uopo, sforzati!
Bah! Sei tu forse un uom?
Tu se' Pagliaccio.
Vesti la giubba e la faccia infarina.
La gente paga, e rider vuole qua.
E se Arlecchin t'invola Colombina,
ridi, Pagliaccio, e ognun applaudirà!
Tramuta in lazzi lo spasmo ed il pianto
in una smorfia il singhiozzo e 'l dolor.
sul tuo amore infranto!
Ridi del duol, che t'avvelena il cor!
Perform! While in this madness,
I no longer know what I say,
and what I do!
And yet it is necessary... Try!
Bah! Are you a man?
You are a clown.
Put on your costume and colour your face.
People have paid, and they want to laugh.
And if Harelquin shall steal your love Columbina,
Laugh, Clown, and everyone will cheer!
Turn your anxiety and tears into jest,
your pain and sobbing into a funny face.
at your own broken love!
Laugh at the very grief that poisons your heart!
