MADRID IS NOT A LOCAL ISSUE

At least 190 people were killed and over 1,200 wounded in Madrid this morning as ten bombs exploded during the morning rush hour.

The Basque terror group ETA is the prime suspect for the attack but al-Qaeda cannot be ruled out at this point. Whoever was responsible it doesn't matter. In fact, I think one of the important points is that the existence of one terrorist group aids the other because we don't know exactly were to focus our attention when something like this happens. In today's world their is no local terrorism, its all part of a global phenomenon, regardless of the degree of interconectedness. It has to be approached by the whole world, across the whole world to be defeated.
