I guess we’ll have a chance to see how well peace-nik-ery works. In reaction to the Al Qaida attack on a commuter train, the Spanish have voted in the Socialists – who cheered off departing Prime Minister Aznar with calls of “you’re a fascist.”
On one side of the coin, I’ll be sad to see the Spanish leaving the coalition of the willing.
On the other side of the coin, I’m a little bummed that we will have a real-life experiment testing the Kerry Theory – that is, if we only grovel enough, our Islamofascist enemies will spare us, for now.
I suspect that avenging “The Tragedy of Andalusia” is far higher on Osama’s list, than making nice with Spain. I also suspect Spain will be left alone for a while.
Britain and Italy – brace yourselves. You are next.
It’s war, folks. We can fight these cowardly bastards now, or we can act like mice, hide, and buy some time – after which they will come for us from a position of strength. By that, I mean nukes on freighters in a couple harbors; or in possession of France’s nuclear navy. I hope that Spain, despite this awful setback, stays the course.
