"Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, in a recent White House visit, hailed America, "We will never forget that we owe our freedom, our democracy, to the United States. . . . And we also will never forget that there have been many American young lives that have been lost and sacrificed themselves for us. So, for us, the United States is not only our friend but they are the guarantee of our democracy and our freedom. . . . Every time I see the U.S. flag, I don't see the flag only as representative of a country, but I see it as a symbol of democracy and of freedom.""
