Spain pulls troops from Iraq

Spanish socialists to pull troops out of Iraq 'within 15 days'
By Elizabeth Nash in Madrid
19 April 2004

Spain's new socialist Prime Minister, Jos? Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, honoured his pledge to withdraw Spanish troops from Iraq yesterday, making the order his first public action.

The withdrawal would take place "in the shortest time and in the greatest safety possible", Mr Zapatero said in a brief televised announcement from the Moncloa palace.

Although Spain has not committed itself to a timetable, diplomatic sources in Egypt said that country's Foreign Minister had been told by his Spanish counterpart that Spain would be out in 15 days.

Wasn't their a post-election bombing planned in Spain? Sure shows how these Arabs want a "compromise"

Sunday night in Madrid, someone broke into the tomb of a Spanish police officer killed in the recent raid on Islamic terrorists, dragged his body out, and set it on fire. Monday, Zapatero announced immediate pullout of Spanish troops from Iraq.

Probably just a coincidence. Zapatero had said he was going to pull them out after June 30 anyway. What difference does a couple of months make?

And of course there is at present no evidence it was followers of the Religion of Peace who did the deed. To assume so would be "profiling" -- political incorrectness of the most egregious kind. Wouldn't want to piss of any Jihadis by questioning Muslims. They might feel humiliated and do something nasty.

Heck, it was probably Buddhists. Maybe Hare Krishnas. Might even have been Mormons. Oh, wait! *dopeslaps self* It was the Joooos!


MADRID, Spain -- The body of a Spanish police officer who was killed in a raid on suspected Islamic terrorists was removed from its tomb Sunday night, dragged across a cemetery, doused with gasoline and burned, a Spanish police official told CNN.

Police do not know who committed the crime, and an investigation is under way.
