The Spanish government declared it won’t extradite eight men it says might have had some involvement in the September 11 attacks unless the U.S. renounces the use of military tribunals and agrees not to impose the death penalty. Spain, like most other countries in the European Union, signed an agreement on human rights which opposes summary military trials and the death penalty. Apparently, other European countries would also refuse U.S. requests under these conditions.
Bush has said countries are either for us or against us in the war on terrorism, that those who are against us will have to suffer the consequences.
Does this mean that the U.S. will now bomb Spain?
