Wow, I think I'm starting to get the hang of how to use the blog icon on my Google tool bar!
Anyway, found this link via (where else?)Eschaton
Yahoo! News - Purported Al Qaeda Letter Calls Truce in Spain
"An unrelated videotape of a man describing himself as al Qaeda's European military spokesman also claimed responsibility for the Madrid bombing, saying it was in retaliation for outgoing Spanish Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar's domestically-unpopular support for the U.S.-led Iraq war.
In a shock election result three days after the Madrid bombs, Spain voted in the Socialist party, which has since said it will probably withdraw its troops from Iraq.
'The Spanish people... chose peace by choosing the party that was against the alliance with America,' the statement said.
WE WANT BUSH TO WIN
The statement said it supported President Bush (news - web sites) in his reelection campaign, and would prefer him to win in November rather than the Democratic candidate John Kerry (news - web sites), as it was not possible to find a leader 'more foolish than you (Bush), who deals with matters by force rather than with wisdom.'
In comments addressed to Bush, the group said:
'Kerry will kill our nation while it sleeps because he and the Democrats have the cunning to embellish blasphemy and present it to the Arab and Muslim nation as civilization.'
'Because of this we desire you (Bush) to be elected.' "
Well, I for one will fight to ensure our country does not appease the terrorists. If the terrorists want Bush re-elected, then we must vote against Bush!
