Sample text

L’ultimatum L’inchiesta ufficiale dell’impero austriaco sul delitto di Sarajevo fu realmente un’inchiesta superficiale; gli esiti che essa diede erano tutti già preordinati, era una verità già conosciuta che veniva resa pubblica. In particolare l’inchiesta dimostrò – fra molte virgolette – che a Belgrado il delitto era stato preparato politicamente; che le bombe erano state fornite dall’arsenale serbo; che ufficiali serbi avevano insegnato l’uso delle bombe e delle pistole ai congiurati e li avevano anche aiutati a varcare il confine austriaco; in sostanza questo tipo di diagnosi era rivolta unicamente a incastrare in una responsabilità ineludibile il governo della Serbia.

Mentre egli pronuncia queste parole, l’Austria ha già ritenuto che l’ultimatum sia stato respinto e quindi ha già proceduto a considerarsi in stato di preguerra, o di preparazione delle operazioni nei confronti del vicino regno serbo. Ma segnalare tale reazione a caldo, resa in ambiente ufficiale – quello del suo governo – da parte di Guglielmo II, significa segnalare anche come il discrimine fra guerra e pace sia stato fino all’ultimo minuto del tutto incerto: colui che viene indicato come il principale artefice del conflitto, l’imperatore di Germania, è però al tempo stesso colui che si è espresso – sia pure inutilmente – sulla reazione serba all’ultimatum in maniera assolutamente possibilista.

Non dimentichiamo la longa manus che l’Inghilterra aveva tramite i suoi servizi segreti proprio sulla costa antistante, ad Anversa, quella città che già Napoleone al tempo suo chiamava una «pistola puntata contro l’Inghilterra». E l’altro prezzo da pagare è evidentemente che il paese neutrale appartenente alla Triplice Alleanza, cioè l’Italia, si allarma per il fatto stesso che la neutralità viene calpestata con tanta facilità. L’Italia ha dichiarato la propria neutralità: cosa che il trattato della Triplice contemplava, ma a questo punto è un paese neutrale cosa come il Belgio e può temere che la propria neutralità venga trattata con altrettanta disinvoltura in una qualche contingenza militare che si potrebbe produrre.
