Just saw it on the news. They put a bomb under a socialist party member's car, in the Vasque Region. We were at red alert at lunch time in Madrid and Vasque Region. I'll see if I can fetch a link...

in spanish, v at the beginning of a word sounds like b
2 ducks and a rabbi walk into a bar.
The rabbi enjoys a nice drink and the ducks are shooed out so that health services aren't called in.
The day proceeds as normal.

Indeed it does, the Spaniards can't distinguish the sound "v" from "b".

One of the other English teachers was talking to me just today about the Basque Country and how he wished that they'd just sit down together and come to an agreement.
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.


I'd dance with you but...

Yeah, but I'm not so near the conflict luckily. I'm in Asturias, which is beside west of the Basque Region...

I'm not Spanish, I'm Irish, I just live here. I feel just as affected by the current situation in the country though, it's just not normal.

I thought so... you had me confused. I'm the same, I'm over here teaching this lot English.

I didn't even hear about it until now, but I haven't watched too much TV. Being out in the Balearics...I dunno...it feels a bit more distant, you know.. But it's still horrible. I just can't believe it's still going on.

Could be worse you could be in Belfast in the 70's&80's. The Basques share a lot of sympathy with the Irish, but they really missed the boat on this one. It pains me to say it but the Spanish Government seem a lot more intransigent on terrorism than the British government (excluding Thatch of course) But they just have to declare a full ceasefire in exchange for more representation. I think the Catalans have it the right way, it may be excrutiatingly slow for the ardent Catalan nationalists, but bit by bit they are gaining some measure of control. Now, there's a subject for your English class tomorrow (said he, making the assumption that all Irish in Spain are English teachers)
I wanna grow up to be a debaser

I don't understand, who's behind the bombing (espeically Madrid) and why?
In detail please.

Basque Nationalists, Madrid is the capital of Spain, seat of the government, etc.

The head honchos in the capital are worried about further bombings, which (I assume) is why they're on red alert.
