This was posted on CNN but I got it from Andrew Sullivan.

    Originally posted by CNN.com
    CNN also has obtained a document posted on an Internet message board analysts believe is used by al Qaeda and its sympathizers that spells out the terrorist group's plan to separate Spain from the U.S.-led coalition on Iraq.
    The strategy spelled out in the document, posted last December on the Internet, calls for using terrorist attacks to drive Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar's Partido Popular from power and replace it with the Socialists.
    That was expected to drive a wedge between Washington and Madrid and result in the withdrawal of Spanish military forces from Iraq.
    "We think the Spanish government will not stand more than two blows, or three at the most, before it will be forced to withdraw because of the public pressure on it," the al Qaeda document says.
    "If its forces remain after these blows, the victory of the Socialist Party will be almost guaranteed - and the withdrawal of Spanish forces will be on its campaign manifesto."


I think that sums up anything I'd have to say on the matter.

I wasn't impressed with The Daily Show tonight and their bit about the Spanish bombings. I guess it's tragic when it's 9/11 but it's funny when it happens to another country, eh? I never thought I'd say this, but fuck Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Well the whole situation make me want to rethink that old adage, "what does not kill us only makes us stronger." Looks like Spain lost this battle.
