Yup they got a lot after Franco and democracy came but I think they'd have to think carefully about a total 'divorce' from France and Spain and what it would cost them money wise-it probably wouldn't be cheap.

Why do journalists in the US and the UK insist on calling ETA a “Basque separatist group”? It is a terrorist group. The problem is not that they are separatists. The problem is that they’re terrorists. Since Francisco Franco’s death in 1975 –the Spanish dictator who oppressed everybody in Spain and not only the Basques...—, Spain transitioned to democracy and allowed the existence of separatist political parties, not only in the Basque country, in Catalonia, Galicia, Valencia and other areas too. So the problem is not that “Many Basques argue they are culturally distinct from Spain and deserve statehood”. In Spain there ARE NOT any “arrests of independence sympathizers”. In Spain there are no political prisoners. You are only arrested if you embrace terrorism to achieve independence. Please, do not spread misinformation and terrorist PR!

fanned # 1. Remember it was France that refused to prosecute the terrorists until the EU. France that allowed the movement to grow in Spain! France that harbored terrorists. As long as they did not set off the bombs and kill in France!

And do not forget that many of the assasin=s were trained in Libya.

I think its the same reason many European and Arab media outlets refuse to refer to Palestinian terrorists as such (they prefer the term militants or freedom fighters)

its all politics....

It's the Tumbly-Booos!!! For those of you who haven't seen BBC's 'The Night Garden' for pre-schoolers, this will mean nothing. But take it from me - it's uncanny.

Now all I need is to see is Jerry Adams and Martin McGuinness in Teletubby costumes and my life will be complete.

Not that I don't agree with the sentiment of your post (because I do) but, just a thought for you:

perhaps you should be a little more reticent about calling others "idiots" when you clearly don't understand the usage of the words "there, their, and they're".

Well we shall see about that. It is a nice sentiment, but there is a growing fear of Islamists in the peninsula and the Basque country is not immune....
