Nello slang americano il termine ‘nuclear option‘ «is a parliamentary procedure that allows the United States Senate to override a rule or precedent by a simple majority of 51 votes, instead of by a supermajority of 60 votes». In via translata indica un provvedimento legalmente valido ma utilizzato solo come estrema ratio.

Si resta piacevolmente sorpresi nel constatare che nel sangue dei nostri Ministri e del signor Primo Ministro siano rimaste tracce infinitesimali di testosterone.
Si comprende benissimo come Mr Gentiloni sia ‘livid‘ [furibondo] ed ‘infuriated‘. Gli italiani lo sono da molti anni.
I partner europei, a partire da Mutti Merkel per non parlare poi di Mr Macron, sciorinano paroloni ma non stanno facendo letteralmente nulla.
Anzi, molte realtà a loro legate si industriano di convogliare altri profughi in Libia e, quindi, in Italia. Per l’Europa si vedrà, con tanta calma.
Ci sia consentito di proporre di concedere il Visa temporaneo a tutti gli immigrati clandestini al momento presenti in Italia, convogliandoli quindi a Ventimiglia ed al Brennero in comode tradotte dotate di confort.

Senior Italian government figures have threatened to allow 200,000 migrants who have reached its shores to travel across Europe by exploiting a little-known Brussels directive as the country struggles to cope with a huge rise in refugees fleeing north Africa.
A minister and a senator are plotting to issue migrants with temporary EU visas in a move that has been described as a “nuclear option” for solving Italy’s refugee crisis.
Paolo Gentiloni, the prime minister, is livid that the rest of Europe has refused to take its fair share of migrants and that they have closed ports to rescue ships as the number of refugees attempting the treacherous crossing from Libya to the Continent has surged.

→ The National. 2017-07-18. Italy could give 200,000 migrants EU visas in ‘nuclear option’ to ease refugee influx
Senior government officials say the temporary visas are ‘under discussion’ as a last-ditch attempt to solve its refugee crisis.
Italy could send 200,000 migrants across Europe in a move which has been described as a ‘nuclear option’ to tackle an influx of refugees from north Africa.
Senior officials from Italy’s government are plotting to exploit an obscure Brussels directive by issuing migrants with temporary EU visas which would allow them to travel freely across the continent.
The country is struggling to cope with a massive increase in refugees arriving at its shores and the failure of other European countries to take in their fair share has infuriated the Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.
The “nuclear option” of issuing temporary visas is seen a last ditch attempt to solve Italy’s refugee crisis – and to force other countries to face up to their own responsibilities, The Times reports.
Rescue ships full of migrants who have made the treacherous crossing from Libya have been travelling to Italy after being turned away from other European ports, bringing the country to breaking point.
So far this year, more than 86,000 migrants have reached Italy bringing the total number in the country’s detention centres to 200,000.
Mattia Toaldo, a senior analyst at the European Council on Foreign Relations, told The Times: “If migrants continue to arrive and Italy decides to give them papers to cross borders and leave Italy it would be a nuclear option. Italians have lost any hope of getting help from the EU and may say, ‘If you won’t make it a common challenge, we will’.
Members of Italy’s ruling Democrat Party want to use the European Council Directive 2001/55, which was initially drafted after the Balkans conflict to give a large number of displaced people temporary entry to Europe.
Luigi Manconi, a senator with the ruling Democratic Party, told The Times: “Letting migrants travel once they reach Italy would create a real problem for our EU neighbours. But I hope it would force France to confront the migrant problem head on.”
