Arnaldo Otegi

The bomb rather than the ballot box...

Went to Barajas Terminal 4 to fetch a daughterly visitor. I saw these Beirut or Belgrade-like images. As if an heavy precision bomb has been dropped by a F-111 from 10 000 feet. ETA people still have not made up their minds in the bombs versus the ballot box dilemma. You can't have both, as the Provisionals will tell you. Grown-up politics are tough but there's only one decision to make. Terrorism might be an over-used concept but Democracy, no matter how many times you try to bend its meaning, is still the one and only safeguard that ensures that a political struggle is conducted in a fair and clean manner.
