"US PRESIDENT George W Bush is awaiting "gestures" from the Spanish government after King Juan Carlos extended an "olive branch" after the two countries fell out over Iraq," the state-run news agency EFE writes:
According to the Spanish daily El Pais, which quoted sources at the meeting at the Bush ranch in Crawford, Texas, and White House sources, Bush and the king met for three hours.

During the encounter, the king transmitted "a message, an olive branch on the part of Zapatero," the paper added, referring to Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.
Maybe resignation would do.

On the other hand, it's difficult to take Zapatero's 'olive branch' seriously, when simultaneously he is getting cozy with Latin American dictators who stand out for their hatred towards the US: Chavez first, then Castro.
