Spain: Zapatero offered Obama to host AFRICOM at Rota Naval Base

Zapatero offered to increase U.S. military presence in Spain titled El País on its cover on Wednesday December 8, 2010.

It added: “José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero was eager to turn the page on the bad relations with President George Bush and wanted to ingratiate with Obama. Just after the latter arrived at the Casa Blanca, Zapatero showed his willingness to increase U.S. military presence atRota Naval Base and offered it to be used by Africom, the new Pentagon command for Africa. “

Found here.

Well, I understand that is necessary for both countries to maintain a good relationship. But it’s quite hypocrite to see Zapatero going after Obama this way, after calling for other countries to order their troops back from Iraq and remaining seated while US flag was passing before him at Spanish National Day Parade on 2003. With his half machiavelic schemes, half childish, he doesn’t understand that Obama is not US Prez for ever and that another Republican can (and, with present circumstances will) be elected. So, then, will they be offering this still?

By the way, just to measure his great democratic spirit: he didn’t even ask the Parliament if they agreed on this. Isn’t that marvellous?😡
