    Yup, looks like the ETA is up to their old tricks.

    Yeah that is pretty scary. Whenever I read about something like this, I imagine it happening where I live, and it freaks me out.
    Then I remember I live in Canberra, Australia, no one cares about Australia, let alone know that Canberra's the capital.

    Edit: oh yeah, I'm not too hip with Terrorist lingo. Who exactly are the ETA (where are they, what does ETA stand for, etc)?

    It´s a militaristic Basque separatist party.

    EDIT: The Basque language has no relation to any other european language and very few people speak it. Their name is in basque so I really have no idea what it stands for in full... The first word is "euskadi" which means basque, that´s all I know.

    Euskadi Ta Askatasuna (ETA) means Basque Homeland (Fatherland) and Liberty if you cared to know, Dross.

    Thanks Mac. Does it literally mean fatherland or did you throw that in there for effect?

    It can be translated either way as far as I know. Like Rodinia can mean homeland or motherland in Russian.
