The last time Spanish politics mattered was the year 1519. Then the English Navy bitch slapped them back to Madrid and that was that.

Little bit different situation don't think? One, we actually had germany under control and we were not just flapping our gums (which is what they are doing). We could actually enforce our rulings. Two, it wasn't us by ourselves, it was a group of nations. And three, even if admin officials were guilty of any crime (and that is debatable), it was nowhere near what Germany did.

And four they actually put millions of people into ovens. Millions.

This would be more worrisome if they still had that armada... whatever happened with that?

sailed on England, huge storm came and wiped them out, English finished the rest, then made them sail home by going north between ireland and england then south through the english channel which kinda destroyed the rest.

after they wiped out their middle class they didn't have the money to rebuild it to the same size, and they spent the rest of their time committing genocide in new spain.

spanish history post andula is pretty funny. it's basically just a cycle of genocide, fascism, populist hand waving, repeat.

If they can't do anything but flap their gums, then why do you have a problem with it? That's my only contention here. They can do what they want, it won't amount to a hill of beans, why get excited about it?...

Don't really have a problem with it per say, but IMO, its a waste of time.

I commented on it, thats what we do here. :)
