Socialists Score Spectacular Spanish Election Win

Anti-US continues to be a popular platform in Europe...

"The ruling Popular Party (PP) conceded defeat to Socialist leader Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, who will take over from outgoing Prime Minister Jose Maria Aznar, a staunch supporter of the U.S.-led war in Iraq (news - web sites) that most Spaniards opposed.
'My most immediate priority is to beat all forms of terrorism,' said Zapatero, asking for a minute's silence in honor of the 200 people killed in the bombings on four packed commuter trains. "

"The Socialists have pledged to withdraw Spain's 1,300 troops from Iraq if the U.N. does not take control by June 30 when Washington plans to hand power back to Iraqis. Opinion polls showed as many as 90 percent of Spaniards opposed the Iraq war. "
