Doesn't Spain have other autonomous regions?

Wouldn't this just be one more?

Or are they wanting complete nation-state independence?

This is not real independence

This is not real independence unless they leave the EU, which they won't.

It's more like Southern California and Northern California splitting into separate states than US Civil War-style secession.

Hop to it Scotland!

Hop to it Scotland!

Southern Agrarian

That is going to stir up the Basques, I would think.

Who for some reason have a strong link to Boise, there are several families that settled there a couple generations back. Came to herd sheep. Anyway, apparently they have been fighting for independence for a long time, and I guess they got themselves on the "terrorist" list for a while. A little embarrassing locally, as they were sort of our "token diversity" in Boise, Whidaho.

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

So?

How is that going to help them if the UN decides to occupy, create a civil war, and treat them like Palestine?

Wont help them

But should keep a few of the NU troops occupied when Texas goes too.

LOLLL!

WOW!

Congratulations Catalunya!
