I am all for the arrest of terrorists and stopping the groups that want to carry out the bombings. What just makes me wonder is the equipping your self with material to make explosives.

The west is doomed.

Q: How do you deal with internal threats to security?
A: Take the few hundred radicalized anti-society minded folks with a powerful ability to recruit new members and throw them into a closed system with around a million people with little purpose in life and a general dislike for the state.

So I guess pulling out of Iraq did them no favors. When are they going to figure out that they are non Muslim and thats why the are having the terrorist problem?

I suspect that Spain will always remain a primary target for Muslim terrorists as it was under varying degrees of Muslim control for quite some considerable time.

These extremists will view regaining lost land as a priority in their goal of imposing their vile interpretation of Islam upon the rest of us.
