Aznar is going to Washington again today; this is the fourth time in a year. They're going to talk about the goofy Franco-German defense plan, terrorism, especially the ETA, the future of NATO, and the like. Aznar is going to ask that the United States add Herri Batasuna, or AuB, or whatever they're calling themselves now, to the American terrorist shit list, which we will apparently be happy to do. Spain thinks this is cool because they will be able to use it as a lever in the European Union to get Batasuna put on the EU terrorist shit list. Aznar will also express Spain's desire to cooperate on making a Middle East peace plan that will be viable or whatever. He would like to have any international conference on Israel and the Palestinians held in Madrid. I bet he gets what he wants.
