Spanish Appeasement
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

So terrorists (and it's important to point out we still don't know exactly who or why) detonate multiple bombs along a rail line in Spain last week, killing around 200 people and injuring over a thousand. Before the bombing, the Popular Party, which supported sending troops to Iraq, was in this position:

Internal tracking polls predicted last Wednesday that the PP would win, but Thursday's terrorist attacks in the capital changed everything, one analyst said.

Yes, it did change everything. The Spanish, in the aftermath of the attack, decided to elect a leader who is now planning on pulling all Spanish troops out of Iraq. What did their new leader have to say about the outcome?

Asked if last week's attacks that killed 200 affected the election outcome, Zapatero said if the actions of terrorists can affect elections, that is not a victory for them.

Now I ask you, you think the terrorists believe that?

You'd pretty much have to be an idiot to think that Al Qaeda is not celebrating today. They were able to effectively oust a political party from a European country with ten backpack bombs. Quite a bargain.

What message do you think was sent to Al Qaeda this weekend? Sure...terrorism works.

And by their actions, do you think Spanish voters have lessened, or increased, the probability of a terrorist attack in countries which are allies of the United States, such as Britain, Japan, and Poland? What do you think the odds are that the Spanish election results have increased the risk of a terrorist attack on American soil prior to our next elections?
