It won’t work

It looks like the Spanish people are hoping that booting out the pro-American government will somehow bring them peace. But it won’t. The only thing that will end the war declared on them is the surrender of their secular government and establishment of a new, profoundly non-secular government. I don’t see them going for that.

It’s clear now that appeasement will be the first European response. When it doesn’t work, expect them to turn surprisingly savage, appallingly so by American standards.
