Military action not best way to stop terror says Boldrini

House Speaker calls for European basic minimum income

(ANSA) - Rome, December 16 - Lower House Speaker Laura Boldrini on Wednesday said that the military intervention is not the best way to fight terrorism.
    "Once you bomb a target, who intervenes on the ground? Which forces? No one can give an answer. Bombing becomes an exercise in responding to public opinion rather than for getting results," she said.
    Boldrini also told reporters that was in favour of an new European wide benefits system to ensure a universal basic minimum income.
    She said such a measure "would change the perception towards Europe". "In the debate on the eurozone, one could even think of imposing social measures, and among these are the European basic income or an EU tax to allocate to needy citizens," Boldrini added.
