It's Not About Iraq

Wretchard at Belmont Club has an excellent post: the attacks in Spain on 3/11 were planned before Spain participated in the invasion of Iraq. This undermines any argument that Spain was targeted because of its participation.

It may well be that the attacks were carried out because of their participation, but participation did not make them a target. Their existence did. This should scare the pants off of all of us, since we all exist. And there's no way to appease someone who's offended by your very existence, other than to cease to exist.
