Exclusive Footage: Spain high speed train crashes near Santiago de Compostela [COMPLETE VIDEO] – YouTube: this looks a great deal like a bomb attack. The rails were sound, the station is all straight rails, there were no other vehicles or trains on the track and the first car is blown to shreds and thrown up in the air whereas the other cars were in an accordion behind it.
Over 50 people are dead most of whom were in the first car. Spain is under tremendous stress with high unemployment, the full IMF strictures on spending and lots of regional tribalism which harkens back to the Roman Era and the Islamic rule in the Dark to Middle Ages.
This is the former ‘capital’ of Galicia which has its own language. During the Dark Ages, it was part of the Kingdom of Asturias. Galicia is like many parts of Europe and the British Commonwealth, that is, they always struggle to have their ‘autonomy’. This leads to urban battles periodically when times are difficult and unemployment is high.
This is true everywhere: bad employment conditions breeds ‘terrorism’ as people do various things they would not do if they were satisfied with the status quo and kept busy, working. This is why the plot of the capitalist bankers to drive wages down and increase unemployment is so very, very stupid.
We shall see if it is a bomb, of course. I am only speculating here but the chances are rather high.
