By now we've all heard about the terrorist attacks on Spain and the massive loss it cost to the people of Madrid. Only a couple of days after the attack elections were held in the country and a Socialist party was put into office when the Popular party was a clear favorite before.
On September 11th terrorists attacked the US and caused massive destruction and loss in New York, within hours of the attack the US launched missles at Afghanistan, and only several weeks afterwards Congress unannimously passed a resolution to allow the US to invade Afghanistan.
While elections and war pacts are only necessary reactions to these attacks could these reactions possibly be seen as a success to the terrorists that commit these crimes? If it becomes common happenstance that great political upheaveal and change occur in ever country that suffers a massive terrorist attack will this be insentive to Al Queda and like groups to continue these attacks?
If you are a citizen of Spain what effects do you think the political change will have on your country, do you think it's for the better or worse? And to everyone else what do you think the global position on terrorism should be in the comming years?
Ok I guess we need rules posted
