WOW! Spain Tucks-Tail and Runs from USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Group

WOW!  Spain Tucks-Tail and Runs from USS Abraham Lincoln Strike Group
10 Comments

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. 

Shame!

    “Mike Pompeo heard that very clearly today from us, not only from myself, but also from other ministers of EU member states, that we are living in a crucial delicate moment, where the most relevant attitude to take, the most responsible attitude to take is, and we believe should be, [that] of maximum restraint and avoiding any escalation on the military side”, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini told reporters following a meeting with the bloc’s foreign ministers on how to preserve the Iran nuclear deal.

    The EU, made up of NATO members, said that they aren't interested in getting involved in WW???. After that the Spanish Frigate turned toward home. Smart and not cowardly, not stupidly fumbling into another useless war. It would be welcome news if walrus-puss and pompasss were "retired" early...

    My opinion: More intelligence games. Make it seem like Spain is really scared and shook up, leaves for home, wants no part of war, and this adds to the overall effect and impression on Iran.

    The Conquistadores fought for gold, lots of gold. The US isn't going to give them that. So why risk getting sunk in the Persian Gulf? Better to home and eat tapas and drink sangria!

    Tomorrow Hal, pompousass is supposed to go to Sochi to meet Lavrov. All pompousass will get from Lavrov is a severe dressing down.

    Last week pompousass went to Baghdad where he copped a dressing down from Iraq. Remember that he commented on leaving Baghdad was that 'there is nothing more to talk about'. This indicates that there is a majority of MPs in the Iraqi Parliament that now support demanding the imperialists to LEAVE Iraq.

    Think for a minute Hal, in the event the shooting starts EU member states start following Spain's lead by withdrawing their forces from the ME AND dening over-flight rights of imperialist airforce aircraft over these EU member states?

    Hal, I think you have missed much of the geo-politics going on here.

    The recent Spanish elections cleaned out many of the zionist supporters, and coupled with Spain's poor economic position, there is little general support for Spain's military to support more zionist bulls**t.

    Coming up on May 23, EU member states go to the polls to elect MEPs. This election has created a crisis within the EU's superstructure as there is the real probability that EU member states will return a majority of MEPs that will be nationalistic for their own countries. This type of result may well completely reverse the direction of the EU's travels.

    Now you can better understand the ultimatum that Iran has sent to the EU over the nuclear deal, and the sudden uptick in bulls**t from the zionist and imperialist forces over Iran. The 60 days that Iran has specified will allow time for the new EU parliament to consider Irans claims and position.

    BTW, since Washington has unilaterally withdrawn from the multi-party nuclear deal with Iran, Washington no longer has legal standing over or within the nuclear deal.

        What do you call the immigrant wave of stabbings and beheadings in NATO countries? They are being attacked, from sleeper cells within. These dogs are funded by Iran and other countries who support terror. Spain is not sending immigrants to Iran or North Africa to murder. Time for a major cleansing in the Persian Gulf.

          Eh what you smocking ? Immigrant are bought by themself for attacking afghanistan, syria, libya, yemen,iraq, and various african country. And btw NATO themself are to blame for massive immigrant because they open their border mindless. Even asian and otyer arab contry are not that stupid to open their border.

          @ Really,

          "These dogs are funded by Iran and other countries who support terror".

          Rubbish. There is no evidence that Iran is involved.
