Spanish Pundit (II)

France-Spain-Morocco-Algeria update

Filed under: Argelia,economía,Francia,Spain,Zapatero — Nora @ 2:07 pm

Some days ago I wrote about Argelia raises the gas as Zapatero supports Morocco about Western Sahara. Those news were already very worrying: to leave Saharuis alone when they most need Spanish support, in their need to be free and decide freely upon their future, is #€€|[]{}_@ (I really do not have sufficient strong words for that). But today I discovered a new bad news -as if those weren’t already bad-:

From The Australian [it’s curious: these news appear in Australia and are under-reported here]:

MOROCCO and Spain vowed overnight to work together to bore a tunnel under the Strait of Gibraltar to link Africa and Europe. Moroccan experts say the long-mooted 39km rail tunnel would be among the world’s most sophisticated engineering works and rival the Channel Tunnel linking England and France.

“We will deploy the necessary effort to achieve this project or at least put it on the right track,” Moroccan Prime Minister Driss Jettou said.

Spanish Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who completed a two-day official visit to Rabat overnight, shared Mr Jettou’s optimism and called the plan an “historic project”.

Mr Zapatero pledged to drum up European Union support for a project he said “would change Africa and Europe”.

“The fixed link would bind the African continent to Europe.

Support for the project reflected how warm ties between Rabat and Madrid have become under Mr Zapatero’s Socialist government. Four cooperation accords were also signed, including one on cracking down on illegal migration of children.

h/t A Western Heart.

So, if Spain did not have problems with (i) illegal immigration and (ii) drugs illegal imports (mainly hachisch) from Morocco, now they are building a train line!!!!

Anyway, just after the raise of natural gas prices Argelia is going to apply Spain -please read the above link-, I found at Instict de Survie (link on French) that Sarkozy has priviledged a partnership between GDF (Gaz de France, the most important natural gas firm from France) and the Algerian natural gas producer Sonatrach in a merger with Suez, to “reinsure the French supply of gas”, according to the ex-minister for Industry, Patrick Devedjian.

Someone asked the other day what was our main targets in foreign policy: just destroy everything that has been created before March 14th, 2004. A very thing to do on the 3rd anniversary of Zapatero’s coming to power.


Si lo de traicionar a los saharauis no era suficientemente malo, encima Zapatero se ha comprometido a construir un túnel de ferrocarril que una Marruecos y España. Y encima lo ha celebrado diciendo que “es un proyecto histórico” y “que cambiará África y Europa”.

Y ha terminado añadiendo que “pedirá que la UE dé su aprobación”. La UE estará encantada de que España tenga otro coladero de inimgrantes ilegales y de importación de drogas… salvo si Francia, aliado muack, muack, de Marruecos da su consentimiento…

El caso es que aprovechando que nosotros estamos peleados con Argelia, Sarkozy ha viajado a Argelia para firmar un acuerdo estratégico entre Gaz de France [la compañía gasística francesa más importante Y estatal] y Sonatrach, la productora de gas argelino.

Vamos de mal en peor…. 😦
