"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Considering the Italian navy has a habit of running refugee vessels under, this is mildly ironic.

Where do they take them when they encounter them?  To Italy, or back to Africa?  If the former, then they have nobody to blame but themselves.

They take the ones they pick up to Lampadusa to decide what to do with them. Any boats recovered are destroyed and the boat captain is imprisoned. It cuts down the flow but doesn't stop it.
