Eurocrisis File: Retired officers of Spanish armed forces gather in Madrid, denounce Catalan separatism, Socialist politician demands investigation of general who allegedly advocated coup d’etat; 500,000 protesters march against austerity in Lisbon, call for resignation of PM Passos Coelho’s government; 100,000s more demonstrate across Portugal, revive revolutionary song from 1974

Imagine what would happen if the Popular Party were to lose its absolute  majority in the next general elections, and the Catalan nationalists were to demand, in exchange for their support, a change of the Constitution to undo the  doctrine of the “indissoluble unity” of Spain.

So what do the Armed Forces do? The rules are one thing, practice is another. If the defense mechanism of the constitutional order doesn’t work, by act or omission, then….The country is more important than democracy. Patriotism is a feeling, and the Constitution is nothing but a law.

— General (ret.) Juan Antonio Chicharro, commander of Spanish Navy Marine Corps until 2010, presently in reserves; speaking at Gran Peña club, Madrid, on February 6, 2013

    I believe the arch Communist false Prophet himself Karl Marx once stated: “Democracy is the road to socialism.”

    So it seems like in Spain and Portugal that’s the obvious ruse….

    I remember reading somewhere there were some odd connections between the CIA and the Soviet KGB when it came to dismantling Portugal’s Empire in the name of “liberation”. Is this the obvious connection to why these rogue Portuguese officials almost succeeded yet failed to install a Communist government?

    And more importantly does this reveal the Soviet penetration of American intelligence? After all why would some of them nowadays be stupid enough to be on the air of the Kremlin run Russia Today or favor our Soviet mole?

    As much as this is coming from crazy Faux Rightists, it seems like our Soviet mole is doing more than just using the drones to target wanted terrorists who happen to be Americans but declared war on their former country:
