This is an aside but I think it's relevant for this thread.

Historically, the more desperate a people are, the more easily they are swayed into the hands of extremists. Look at Russia at the turn of the 20th century. Look at Italy and Germany in the 1930s.

What happened in Spain doesn't surprise me in the least.

Now what's really been skimmed over in the news is that Spain's incoming government hasn't really said they were going to immediately yank troops out of Iraq, but are instead going to wait and see how the transitional government looks on June 30th. If it all goes to hell on July 2nd they're outta there.
