While it is currently uncertain just which band of barbarians is responsible, in a general sense it doesn't matter-- this is an act of pure evil and is to be condemned. Those that would seek to visit this death and destruction upon innocents must be hunted and put down.

For those wishing to express condolences for the victims and solidarity with the survivors, the Spanish Embassy's address: 2375 Pennsylvania Ave. N.W. - Washington, D.C. 20037.

The Embassy of Spain is organizing a demonstration: (via Instapundit)

The Embassy of Spain convenes a silent demonstration tomorrow, Friday, March 12th, to express its outrage for today's terrorist attack perpetrated in Madrid, in which approximately 200 people have died and 900 have been injured.

A book of condolences will be open at the Embassy (2375 Pennsylvania Ave NW) from 10 am to 2 pm today, Friday 12th and Monday 15th.

A funeral service for the victims will be held at St. Matthews Cathedral (1725 Rhode Island Ave NW, Washington DC 20036) on Monday, March 15th, at 5:30 pm.

At the moment, I don't have links for where donations can be given to help the bombing victims; I'll post them when I find them. I encourage everyone who reads this to give something in aid.

Hello, I am a regular reader

Hello, I am a regular reader of your blog from Spain. Thank you for your support in this terrible momments. What a tragedy, what a horrible day for my country. I just hope we kill the bastards who committed this monstrosity.

Golan, do you believe that

Golan, do you believe that ETA is responsible, as the government claims, even though they deny it?

My wife and her family are

My wife and her family are from Madrid, so we have both ridden on the Cercanias. A very efficient and modern train service. My wife's nefew missed being blown apart because he overslept his alarm and took the next train.

Ironically, there is a lot of circumstantial evidence to incriminate both ETA and Al Qaeda. Both have recently threatened Spain for different reasons: ETA threated to make more dramatic explosions because of the success of the goverment prosecuting it and Al Qaeda is still mad about the inquisition and Spain's assistance of the US in Iraq.

The explosive that was found was a mixture of the type of compressed dynamite that ETA stole in 1999 from Southern France, but it was mixed with nitro-glycerine. Also the use of remote detonators disquised as cell phones is also characteristic of ETA.

Supporting the Al Qaeda theory is that a Koran that was found in a truck with a bunch of detonators and the selection of the day that it happened 3-11, exactly 911 days after 9-11. Coincidence??

The attack may well have been the result of an unholy alliance between the two groups with Al Qaeda supplying the money and ETA supplying the bombs.

Even Al-Qaeda is outsourcing.
