IT: Quattrochi died like a MAN

Thanks to Castle Argghhh! for the pix of Quattrocchi. From Jane at Armies of Liberation, comes this:

ROME, April 15 (Reuters) - An Italian hostage shot dead in Iraq tried to look his killers in the eye and died like a hero, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said on Thursday.

Frattini told reporters that Fabrizio Quattrocchi, one of four Italian security guards abducted outside Baghdad, was hooded when his kidnappers put a gun to his head.

"When the murderers were pointing a pistol at him, this man tried to take off his hood and shouted: 'Now I'm going to show you how an Italian dies'. And they killed him," Frattini said.

"He died a hero."

Quattrocchi left for Iraq in November to work as a security guard. The 36-year-old, who was specially trained to guard oil pipelines, was earning up to 10,000 euros ($12,500) a month and saving to buy a house with his fiancee, Italian media said.

But until his kidnapping, his mother thought the former baker was working in Kosovo.
The animals who killed Fabrizio Quattrocchi could not look him in the eye, so they put a hood over his head. Quattrocchi, though, showed them what Western manhood is about. The guy's a hero. He was what the male animals who killed him will never be ... Fabrizio Quattrocchi was a MAN.
