Our NATO ally, Spain, has tucked its tail between its legs and run away from what they fear may be an "escalation" between the United States and Iran. The Defense Minister of Spain ordered a Spanish Frigate, which was accompanying the USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Group, to LEAVE that group and return to Spanish waters because of potential escalation with Iran.
Spain withdrew its frigate 'Méndez Núñez' from the US carrier strike group in the Persian Gulf.
The Spanish Defense Minister ordered the ship to stop accompanying the US aircraft carrier 'Abraham Lincoln' before the escalation of tension with Iran
Nice. Good ally; leaves before any fighting even starts!
How far Spain has fallen from the Conquistadors of yesteryear.
Real Spaniards must be rolling in their graves at this overt example of cowardice by the Spanish government.
