Spainish civil war

From the Spanish front of the war on terror (heh) comes word that a convicted murderer wants to talk peace. Of course the plan probably would call for prisoners to be released when it's over (they always do) so maybe he is serious (about getting out of jail).

ETA Man Wants Peace Talks

Updated: 15:35, Monday February 05, 2007

A convicted ETA killer has called on the Spanish government to reopen talks with the Basque separatist group, it has been reported.

Inaki de Juana Chaos is appealing against a 12-year jail sentence for making terrorist threats in a Basque newspaper.

He has already served a 20-year term for murdering 25 people in a series of attacks.

Chaos told The Times: "I am completely in agreement with the democratic process of dialogue and negotiation."

The government called off talks after ETA bombed Madrid's Barajas International Airport in December, killing two people.

The militant group says it did not mean to kill anyone in the attack, and still regards the peace process as ongoing.

Spain's socialist government has rejected talks, and 200,000 anti-ETA protestors marched in Madrid on Saturday, in support of that stance. (link)

So far the Spanish government is standing it's ground. But I expect (looking at recent history) for that to change and them to cave.
Reason against the terrorists
