About one-third of voters didn't cave, but that doesn't matter. The two-thirds who decided to put the socialists in power have effectively surrendered Spain in the war against terror. Of course, this appeasement won't ultimately make Spain safer because, as Mark Steyn has repeatedly pointed out, "we're all infidels" and worthy of death at the hands of the Islamofacists:
If Islamic terrorism were as rational as Irish or Basque terrorism, it would be easier. But Hussein Massawi, former leader of Hezbollah, summed it up very pithily: "We are not fighting so that you will offer us something. We are fighting to eliminate you." You can be pro-America (Spain, Australia) or anti-America (France, Canada), but if you broke into the head cave in the Hindu Kush and checked out the hit list you'd be on it either way.
The is the fatal misunderstanding in Europe and elsewhere.
