SPAIN will suffer terrible new attacks that would make "blood flow like rivers" unless it pulls its forces out of Iraq, according to a letter purportedly written by an al-Qaeda-linked group.
Spanish authorities revealed on Sunday night that the Ansar group had contacted the Spanish newspaper ABC the previous evening demanding Spain announces the withdrawal of troops from both Iraq and Afghanistan by the following day.
If not, the fax said, "there will be more killings" and the country would be turned "into hell".
As the nation began a week of religious processions in the run-up to Easter, this new threat could not be better timed to cause maximum fear and unrest.
Ansar - who claimed responsibility for the 11 March bombings in Madrid - has a history of striking during holiday periods and using suicide bombers in crowds.
The Spanish National Centre for Intelligence (CNI) said the fax was "very relevant" to its investigation into the attacks in Madrid which left more than 200 people dead.

Spain, not a good place to be especially any location nearer to the war.
====== How about the government sponser Robot Wars (the television show) and ask them to create robots to use against Al-Queda? Just a thought...
Some of the robots i've seen the government use on television seem primitive, a run of the mill "mars-lander". This would inhibate less human casualties and more robotic casualties.
