"08:55 AM Apr. 19, 2004 PT President Bush and his likely Democratic opponent John Kerry are both ticked off at Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who on Sunday ordered his 1,300 troops home from Iraq. Bush bemoaned the action, which he says gives "false comfort to terrorists or enemies of freedom in Iraq" while Kerry echoed that sentiment. Both might want to consider Zapatero's perspective. The Spanish people were overwhelmingly opposed to the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq, the majority opposed committing Spanish troops in the first place, and Zapatero ran for prime minister on the promise to withdraw those troops as soon as possible. The problem here doesn't appear to be Spain."
