Testing the Unversal Democratic Underground Thread

Over at IMAO: there is a Universal Democratic Underground Thread which generally and appropriately mocks the disgusting excesses of the message board. All of the examples note the caustic, innappropriate, debased. paranoid and group think tendencies of the board.

With today's incredible tradgedy in Spain, let's look at some of the examples from the Democratic Underground:

First is the blaming of the CIA:

1. Yes, all the hallmarks of CIA training.
Those alqaida guys really listen in class."

Then a tie back to the Iraq war:

5. The world is safer since we got Saddam!
Just thought I'd point that out, since reality seems to be spoiling this awesome talking point of the misAdministration."

The deleted message positing support for the administration:

then the incredible blaming of the government:

54. perfect timing
'131 dead, 400 wounded'
'...leader of the Basque movement Batasuna connected to ETA says the purpatrators must be sought in muslim circles..'
'... in recent years attacks by ETA have been directed primarily at officials...'
'... next sunday there are elections in Spain..'
(source: local teletext, Netherlands)
So there's a few hints this may not be the work of ETA.
Current Spanish govt is in favor of Bush's various wars, however millions of voters took to the streets in protest.
tinfoil: this is a false-flag operation to coherce Spanish voters to choose for a hard crackdown wrt 'the war on terror'; please hand over your civil rights etc."

I think IMAO may have hit it prety well on the nose...
