Zapatero, Terrorism & You
Bring on the Crusades
"My immediate priority will be to fight all forms of terrorism."-- Spain's new leader, Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, 43
Spain To Pull Troops From Iraq - "Mr Blair and Mr Bush must do some reflection and self-criticism... you can't organise a war with lies." - Zapatero, (after winning the election)
Some people DO understand the difference. These troops should immediately be redeployed to Afghanistan. (The above link is also a good general round-up of the situation in Spain now)
Then there was also this: "This was a victory for the Spanish people and a victory for democracy," said a triumphant Mr Zapatero. "The people wanted a government of change."
Substitute "American" for "Spanish" and "Zapatero" for "Kerry" and you have part of Kerry's acceptance speech in November. I just thought the "government of change" phrase was funny. A universal polemic.
