Example text

L’Austria ha proceduto infatti sulla linea che porta direttamente al conflitto, ha soltanto avuto la forbitezza stilistica di definire in modo elusivo l’ultimatum, non lo chiama ultimatum ma «passo che contempla un limite di tempo», che in sostanza vuol dire la stessa cosa. Questo testo ultimativo col quale si ingiunge alla Serbia di ottemperare a ben nove condizioni, senza le quali la crisi è irreversibile, deve essere consegnato al governo serbo. Il ministro austriaco presso la Serbia, l’ambasciatore, ha delle istruzioni precise, che a noi sono note – i documenti diplomatici su queste vicende sono abbondantissimi e sono stati via via liberati, resi accessibili nel corso del tempo, già prima della seconda guerra mondiale, quindi su questa materia la documentazione non manca.

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.

L’attentatore viene immediatamente acciuffato: è un tipografo di origine serba, ma suddito austriaco, di nome Kabrinovich. ». Il corteo faticosamente raggiunge la sua meta. La coppia principesca si fa vedere dalla folla, appare all’aperto, la folla applaude. Il conte Harrach – che siede accanto all’erede al trono – chiede al governatore se ha messo adeguate truppe a garantire la sicurezza di Sua Altezza; il governatore risponde piccato: «Lei pensa evidentemente che Sarajevo sia piena di attentatori».
