GUEST,guest from NW BS: Spain elects new Premier (51* d) RE: BS: Spain elects new Premier 17 Mar 04

"Spain gave in to terrorism.   Plain and simple."

Spain exercised democracy. plain and simple. according to reports the Spanish people polled near 90 percent against becoming involved in Iraq last fall but their represenative government betrayed their wishes and went ahead anyway. So instead of buying the insane logic that since we've done something stupid (i.e. creating more terrorists by fighting a war that was unecessary while ignoring the actual enemies) we have to keep doing it because we did it and can't stop now, they decided to hold their government responsible and find a different way to deal with the problem of terrorism. the way they were dealing with it isn't working so they have the sense to try a different tack. let's hope we show some of that type of intelligence here in november.

oh, PS to you militarists out there, if the people don't exercise their democratic rights, their freedom and their obligation to hold their government responsible for lies, deception and needless killing, guess what?...the terrorists WIN! we don't want that!
