    Times are changing

    But you still have to check the foreign press to get something closer to the truth. The history goes like this: Bono (no relation to the U2 bespectacled leader), our defense minister in pectore, met secretly with Rumsfeld, his meeting was OK (Google translation). Enter the NYT interview with Zapatero I mentioned before:
    One of the elements in the timing of the withdrawal of troops was the meeting between Mr. Bono and Mr. Rumsfeld. Mr. Rumsfeld said that there would never be American troops under the UN or an international organization. The meeting between Rumself and Bono apparently went so badly that Rumsfeld said a withdrawal would be an act of cowardice and appeasement, and Bono replied that Spain had cojones. Did the dispute contribute to the timing of the decision?

    I wonder what will happen the day they have a tense interview. Will they slap each other in the face and make an appointment at dawn?

    The withdrawal of the troops so quickly was a very strange move. Why it needed to be so fast and why before the end of June? I really don't understand it well.

    Well, you know the reason now: Rumsfeld called Bono a "sissy", and he didn't take it to well :-)
    But, come to think of it, didn't that happen 2 weeks before Zapatero speech?

    If that's really the reason, it means the international diplomacy is really broken.
