Topic: Spain is pulling out in Iraq?


I was browsing CNN.com and noticed this like........said Spain will begin pulling out of Iraq as soon as the Defense Minister-designate is sworn into office. Spain currently has 1,400 troops in Iraq.

Yes plus did they just complete elections in Spain and elected a more liberal government. I may be wrong on this one but I believe I read that in a paper somewhere.

This is bad for us (US) too. Not that we needed 1,400 Spainards to win, but the terrorists will feel that their attacks can accomplish their purposes and fill them with new resolve. Now the terrorists are going to think that all of us are cowards.

Bush in 04, or all of Western civilization is effectively dead.

Watch it there, keep it civil (there are ways to say you do not agree with the new Spanish government's decision without calling them names).


And hc^patonki, I do not believe that the government was "fired" (although I guess losing an election is technically that ), but the terror strike you are referring to took place three weeks before the election and tipped the election in favor of the Socialists.
