Future Violence in Spain

category international | anti-war / imperialism | opinion/analysis author Thursday October 29, 2015 22:49author by Deaglan O'Riain Report this post to the editors

Catalonian desire for independence

Is it possible that Europe will sleepwalk into another Yugoslavia.
The prognosis for Europe in general is not good at all!

War by timetable again!!!!!

I am predicting bloodshed in Catalonia within six months that will unfortunately happen aqainst the background of the rise of anti EU feeling across Europe due in the main to immigration fears.

A lot of dark forces may be unleashed in the arguments over Catalonian independence!

Just as in Turkey recently perhaps a bomb may go off in a pro independence demonstration in Barcelona!

Who will claim responsibility for this outrage?
The answer is nobody!

This will resonate with the dark days of the failed Italian state of the 1970's and 80's.

Who might be responsible for this bomb?

Elements of the Spanish military who have been emasculated since the fall of Franco and wish the integrity of the Spanish state to remain.
Catalonian pro-independence agent provocateurs who will blame Madrid.
The extreme left or the extreme right as opposed to the 80% of the popular right of centre based pro-independence movement.

There is no greater chaos than an unclaimed senseless act of violence to feed this uncontrollable beat!

Who will stop this escalation?

Nobody?

Look at the EU responses to the current refugee crisis, the last depression, massacres in the former Yugoslavia (the Dutch ran away) etc....

The immediate future is very bleak indeed!!!!
