Title: JUL 30, 1400J, ETA does it again...
Post by: Rattler on 30 July 2009, 15:41:19
After people being lucky to survive yesterdays attack in Burgos (a miracle really, so many kids and women sleeping there and only 60 lightly injured):

(http://foto-cache.elcorreodigital.com/jpg/8/5/1248852635358.jpg)

this time, 2nd time within 24 hours, they struck (supposedly it was ETA, wouldn´t be surpised if it were the PanCatalanists either) in Mallorca:

2 dead, many injured, as result of a car bomb in a Guardia Civil vehicle in front of the casern in Palma Nova, Mallorca (first attack in Mallorca ever).

The surge of attacks (we expect two more in the next 3 days as there are three confirmed car bomb out there still not located) has to do with tomorrow - JUL 31 -  being the 50 years anniversary of the foundation of ETA.

The GC casern in Palma Nova is mainly occupied of Cadets, i.e. their age is between 18 and 20, que hijos de puta!

They really are stupid: They will not reach anything that way, just revulsion. How can you found a new nation/motherland on killing children??
When will the youngsters of the "left" Abertzale (which from my socialist POV are merely facists, really, and every honorable communist/socialist will start turning about in his grave on hearing them claim this political line), who, I am sure, love dogs and cats, find their love for their fellow humans and start condemning ETA using bombs to propagate political/economic goals?

Lacking words right now,

Yup, TEDAX blew it 1800J, now working on a third. This is the new (young) ETA, no advice calls anymore, attacking children, and booby trapping the surroundings...

So many lives wasted, not only those of the GCs but also those of the youngsters (there are no old ones anymore) that formed the commando and that will end thier lives behind bars... For nothing they could want to achive by this action... Sad.

At least those last two are not factually correct:

- 65 wounded for yesterdays attack sounds fierce, actually there was only some few scratches, most just shell shocked, 63 lighly injured (none even hospitalized)

- Todays attack was *not* one of the car bombs that were expected (*no* van filled with explosives), it was a satchel bomb mounted between 1000J and 1300J under a 4x4 GC patrol vehicle and ignited at turning the key.

Total ETA mortal victims score tops 1.000 in their 50 yrs.

Update:

Spanish authorities have published 6 photos of supposed ETA members that are supposedly behind the two bombings in Burgos and Mallorca:

(http://www.euroweeklynews.com/images/stories/mallorca/SOSPECHOSOS_web.jpg)

Authorities in Mallorca have said they already have the names and photos of a young couple that they believe behind the bomb attack in Calvia, but haven´t published it yet.

Currently they are searching for an apartment that might belong to the two, and the Islands exits like ports and airport are heavily controlled.

As far as the investigation is going, the hypothesis that the terrorists might have used a time switch to activate the bomb´s movement sensor at a preset time is gaining weight (probably from the informations gained of the 2nd bomb that the TEAX blew up controlledly). This would mean that the terrorists had probably hours to escape before the detonation.

On another angle, yesterday at 1300 local an emotional funeral for the two Guardia Civiles was celebrated in the Cathedral de Palma de Mallorca, in the presence of the Prince and his wife and the President of the Spanish Government, open to the public and many citizens attended spontaneously.

The coffins, carried by companions of the fallen, were received with great applause, as well as the Prince and his wife. Some politicians, though, were booed at.

NP. You only die once (and you will die, face it! Now. Making this clear to yourself takes the fright out, and that is important for living at your ethics, from my POV).

But, if I get out, kill my wife, my sons or daughters or a friend, and you will have me on your back to end of your (or my) life. It would be "I get you" or "You get me", with all my energy and dough behind it, and with a little help of my friends (and I won´t kill when I ever should happen to find myself in this situation, JFDR, got my own plans).

I have never understood how so many ppl have gotten killed, so many families maimed, and nobody ever followed up on the perpetuators privately?? Seems there is also much lip service to/of the victims around.
