I’m pretty broken up about the results of the election in Spain. It seems for all the world like terrorists murdered 200 people with the hopes of swinging an election, and they succeeded. Voters blamed the PM’s support of the Iraq war for the bombings.
Kos, who’s becoming the unofficial president of liberal blogdom, sees this as pretty zero sum.
Spain’s rulling party will be just the latest casualty of Bush’s folly.
I think of it more hypothetically. Say I’m a Wahabist. I want George Bush out of power. Spain has just demonstrated that murdering hundreds of people can make that happen. So, should I set off a bomb on one of the New York to DC Amtrak trains? Why not? It might be a good way to get what I want.
