Yeah.

Is it just me, or is Spain's government handling this attack in a vastly different manner than ours did? I mean, a call for a nation-wide protest against terrorism?

well its europe, peaceful protests are a way of life, not something to squash or fear like it is here.

America (as a government not as individuals) tends to need something to fear to motivate and it thinks that it's people needs the same...
It was the Natives at first, then the British, then Ethnic Minorities, then the Japanese, then Aliens, then the Russians, then Osama, then Sadam and so on and so forth.

Us Europeans tend to see things differently...like actually trying to do things peacefully instead of bombing the crap out of something we dont understand or dont like....Saying that though i was highly dissapointed that my own government here in the UK followed like good little lapdogs as we bombed and killed innocent people in Iraq in search of a handful of men....

I have the upmost respect and sincere sympathies for the Spanish people and those in Madrid especially at this time, and am incredibly impressed in they way theyre handling the situation...

Saying that.....I think its because we had an empire once and were the bastards of the world.....but we lost it and tend to take things more carefully now....The US has never had an empire...i'm wondering if they would quite like one..
