Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
It seems to me more than the military, the parties are the problem here. It's rather clear that PP is playing with fire, and will use this incident to further fire up nationalist sentiments. But what is the Catalan government doing? With this wording of the Estatute, do they also play with fire, play for provocations, or is this just normal uncalculating nationalism, or maybe even bowing to demands from extremists within the governing coalition?
