Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Is this something comparable to the IRA leadership recognising that they can do more to advance their objective by politics than by armed struggle?

What are the chances of this ceasefire ending the use of violence for political purposes in the Basque Country?

Again drawing an analogy with Irish history there is always the potential of a small fringe group taking up the gun the mainstream leadership has laid down and over time replacing one terrorist threat with a comparable one. Is this a realistic scenario in the Basque context?
