From Fallujah With Love

For many people in Arab world (and even in some circles that could hardly be called Arab or Islamist) Fallujah is symbol of noble resistance, fight for freedom and defiance to technologically superior oppresors.

However, it seems that Fallujah serves as another kind of role model, judging by this incident in Madrid.

This incident was probably connected with Zapatero's decision to pull out from Iraq. It is sore remainder for Spaniards that they aren't off the hook yet and that they have long roads to travel before placating the crowd behind 11-3 bombings.

Needless to say, that road is going to end in the Pyreneans – with average Spaniard having to cross mountains carrying all his or her possessions in a small plastic bag.
