so what was that about Spain not suffering from more terrorism? source This was not a "terror attack" per se but, they were terrorists who did detonate an explosive device as Spanish authorities closed on them, chanting as they went to meet Allah. Even though it was not an "attack" rather a forced hand, it does prove terrorists were still in the stages of planning another attack against Spain. I'd like to think it shows that bowing to terrorism won't keep you safe from them. Likewise, the US has not bowed to terrorism and look how many attacks there have been in our country since Sept. 11. You give in to terrorism, you subject yourselves to them even more. You stand up to them, hunt them to the ends of the earth, they look for an easier target (i.e. Spain). Thoughts on this?
