I watch Deutsche-Welle News daily (it's on NYC's TV channel, WNYC), and I had to rewind and watch the news item again, as I did not believe it when I saw it the first time.

From the cited (in #2) DW article...

...Party reactions

The extreme-right Forza Nuova party in a statement released Monday distanced itself from the key suspect, and its former candidate.

Far-right Interior Minister Matteo Salvini did not comment on the raids....

Having fought the Red Brigades, I suspect the Italian government and police are far advanced from the US when combating these kooks. Yes, these guys are at the other end of the political spectrum, but just as dangerous.

Of course, in the current administration, work by the FBI to track and defeat US-based Neo Nazis is being put forth as suppression of legitimate political views...

I know right? They tell nonwhite members of Congress to go back where they came from, set up concentration camps along the borders, and accuse political opponents of being Communists. Today Kellyanne Conway even asked a Jew what his ethnicity was!

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. We put 1000s of Stingers into Afghanistan, yet a few years afterward the US didn't worry about the Taliban using them on our aircraft. Why? They all have a shelf life. Air to air weapons, more so. Batteries have to be changed, gyros need calibrated, tracking software and hardware need tested. If you don't do those things the weapon does not work.

The part I would worry about is the contents of the war head. There are explosives, high explosives, and beyond those the stuff they use in Air to Air missiles.
