You Dropped A Bomb On Me

Wow, the United States military certainly holds a grudge. An unexploded World War II bomb was found near the Bolzano, Italy train station. Guys, you won; there’s no reason to spike the ball 75 years later!

Italian authorities evacuated 4,000 people from the center of the northern city of Bolzano on Sunday to defuse a World War II bomb found during construction.

Three experts defused the 500-pound American bomb during a three-hour operation that also forced 60,000 people to stay in their homes and closed sporting complexes and churches.

An alarm signaled the all-clear to reopen the city center just before noon, as well as a nearby north-south highway and rail line both connecting Italy with Austria and Germany.

The bomb was found close to the city’s central cathedral and not far from the train station — the likely wartime target — during excavation work for a new shopping center.

The Italian government has stated they are stopping all exports of wine and spaghetti in protest.
