The recent revelations about the attacks which took place in Barcelona and Cambrils in 2017 – like those concerning the previous attack in Madrid in 2004 – pose exactly the same legitimate questions as those formulated in other countries about other attacks. Why, everywhere, do the Islamist terrorists appear to be linked to NATO?
At least from the Madrid’s point of benefits, in order to solve the “Catalan Question” probably is the optimal solution that historical lands of Castilla would proclaim their own political independence from Catalonia – Castilla, nevertheless, was one of two founding independent states of Spain.
The problem of Catalonia was left to be solved and the leading political forces of Spain were aware that the Catalans are the only organized ethnic group in the country. The Spainish government did not want to lose a region and had to do something special for the Catalans in order not to lose them.
