Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I've refrained from commenting because the situation is too parallel to the American revolution and the American Civil War.  Some of Spain's claims are valid in context. Washington and Jefferson were properly called traitors in English eyes. Same with Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. After all the US Constitution defines treason as "Making war on the United States". Firing on Fort Sumter was an act of treason.  OTOH, some of these arrests and charges look like thought crime. and refusing to seat duly elected officials?  Arrest them for real crimes but is seems eminently undemocratic to say, "No the voters were wrong, we won'y seat you."  That's the view from here.
