Lion of the Desert
They're showing the movie Lion of the Desert on TCM. About Arab resistance to the Italian invasion of Libya. The film was financed by the Libyan government in the 1970s. It starred Anthony Quinn, Oliver Reed, with Rod Steiger as Mussolini.
The Italians were pioneers in the practice of bombing people with airplanes. They started bombing Libya 100 years ago in 1911. And now the filthy Italian bastards are bombing Libya again. Along with some other people.
