All the sources consulted by City FM related to antiterrorism fight have been very clear about what could be ETA’s next targets, “ETA would like to do an attack wuthout victims to exhibit its operative capacity and to raise the chaces of intimidation and blackmail”. Considering different informations, antiterrorism experts from the Interior and Defense Ministries have reached the same conclusion: ETA is going to attack again and perhaps imminently.
In this scenery, the Antiterrorists Forces have informed to this radio station that there are more that suspicions that ETA terrorist band will seek as a target the zone of the 4 towers in the old sport city of Real Madrid and in which the Torres Espacio burned when the Spanish selection of basketball was celebrating the triumph in the world championship of Japan. This zone of the Spanish capital is known as the “Four Towers Business Area”. This new financial district, located in the north part of the city, is one of the most important urban developments of the city: the Real Madrid sold that space for more than €450 millions in 2001. The Business Area includes 4 buildings whose height is taller than 200 meters: the SyV tour (from Sacyr Vallermoso), the Cristal Tower (from Mutua Madrileña), the new Corporative offices of Repsol YPF and the known as Torre Espacio (from Villar Mir Group). This financial zone represents the Spanish economical power and is considered by ETA as one of the first targets in its aim to attack directly Spanish business and economical interests. Antiterrorist Forces confirm that ETA is searching for its Twin Towers.
The level of alert and vigilance in this area of Madrid will be increased in hours.
Zapatero’s speech: a total rubbish. More appeasement. And a calculated ambiguity.
At the same time, that Socialist called Pepe Blanco (ironic mode on: he was missed… terribly! ironic mode off) is blaming PP about ETA’s end to ceasefire, and, of course, not blaming ETA terrorists for it:
José Blanco stated that, of the end to the negotiations, “the only culprits were the ETA terrorists”. After stating also his support for the Security Forces, Judges and prosecutors, he said his party maintains that “those who use violence should pay for it“. [Of course…]
Then, he said that “it is not a moment to reproach anything” because the most valuable instrument to face terrorists “is the unity of the democrats” and announced the Socialists are “for doing what is needed to recover unity”. But after that he blamed the PP supporters and politicians because there have been several “irresponsible statements” that “have charged against the Spanish Government” [irresponsible to critic this Government? … don’t make me laugh…]. And he demanded Rajoy and PP not to “pursue on that path” and that they should show “loyalty”. The fight against terrorism, he said, should not be an “element of confrotnation between democrats” (oh, but PP wasn’t the extreme-far-right-dictatorial and all that?) and should not be used as an “opposition weapon“.
Of course, of course, after the electoral campaign we have had, of the Tinell pact (by which all the political parties compromised themselves not to ally never with PP) and all that, now they want to recover unity… So they can call us murderers, assasins, genocidal…. because the Iraqi war was supported by PP, and we supported PP some because of that, others not considering that. But if you are critical with their way of handling terrorism, you are considering terrorism as an “opposition weapon” and not feeling loyalty to them.
I disagree entirely, Mr Pepiño, Spanish people should be loyal to Spain and in these matters, they should be loyal to principles, such as no to the negotiation with terrorists (whoever they are) and backing the protection of the innocent citizens against the menaces of those same terrorists. If you negotiate with someone who pretends to impose his/her vision, not with reason but by force, we would be going back to the future: the past would happen again in the future. Violent people would impose their will on peaceful ones. And that is unacceptable.
