Worth Pondering

3 years and one day ago, Spain was attacked immediately before an election by Islamic terror, subsequently deciding to elect a government which immediately pulled out of Iraq. That should have solved their problem, right?

"Spanish officials and experts say the country is potentially in more danger now than ever before as extremist groups reorganize just beyond Spain's southern coast.
...senior officials say radicals in Morocco and other parts of northern Africa, many with ties to Spain, increasingly take their cues from Al Qaeda. . . .
Maghreb-based networks remain the most serious threat to Spain in terms of Islamic extremism, law enforcement officials said this week. They said militants had begun to set up a centralized command and a string of training camps in southern Algeria and northern Mali, and have launched recruiting efforts targeting their brethren who live in Spain.
"We are seeing the Al Qaeda-ization of the Maghreb militants, and that is the evolution that most worries us," a senior counter-terrorism official in the Spanish Interior Ministry said in an interview.


So, despite the bungling of the war, and the attractiveness of pulling out, it sort of confirms the logic of 'fight them there, not here', huh?
