Quote:
Spain unveiled a towering monument on Sunday to those killed three years ago in the bombings that ripped apart rush-hour commuter trains - a glass oval containing messages of condolence written in the aftermath of Europe's worst Islamic terror attack.

King Juan Carlos, Queen Sofia, senior government officials and an invitation-only crowd of several hundred people observed three minutes of silence at a solemn anniversary ceremony in memory of the 191 people killed and more than 1,800 wounded in the attacks of March 11, 2004.

Under glorious sunshine, a lone cellist played the mournful strains of "Song of the Birds" by Pablo Casals, a composition meant to be a call for peace. There were no speeches.

Some in the crowd wiped away tears at the ceremony outside Atocha rail station, one of four targets in the string of 10 backpack bombs that struck morning rush-hour commuter trains.

One of the most effective acts of terrorism of all time. In one horrific stroke, terrorists influenced the Spanish federal election with the direct result being Spain removing their troops from the coalition.

What they did was akin to the French surrendering to the Nazis without a fight. The Spanish are just as bad as they are.
