Hey guys and girls, this morning in Spain we woke up to disheartening news about bomb attacks in the city center. I just thought I'd put out a general message of condolence for the people that have suffered. I hope nobody in this forum has been affected, if so - our thoughts are with you.

I assumed this was the ETA, but new sources are saying the ETA has always phoned in their attacks/loudly proclaimed credit for them - now the head Batasuna guy is saying it was "arabs" - do you think the ETA is really doing it and going to use current anti-arab sentiment to cover it up?

Please lets try to keep with the spirit of first post. It's better not discuss politics here, between friends, in an international forum.

I also offer my condolence for the people that have suffered and their close ones.

It is a tragedy and I feel really sad.

I would like to offer my sympathies and moral support to everyone in Madrid, whether they have been directly affected or not...these things are scary, especially since they can only be beaten by going about ones business as normal and refusing to be terrorised...I'm sure that many of us here in the UK will be wishing you all well in this difficult time and hoping you all have the strength to get through it

Many years ago I was in London on a train and a gentleman standing in front of me dropped dead. All these years later that event still has an effect on me as I can't help but think that he probably kissed his wife and kids goodbye that morning and never came home. It can happen, literally, in a heartbeat.

Nearly 200 people did the same thing in Madrid yesterday. I feel so incredibly sad for their families and friends and the Spanish people as a whole.

It puts SERP watching into real perspective.

Soy un madrileņo.

Well, not really, of course. But part of my heart is very much Spanish these days.
