YET MORE of ETA's "negotiation":
A bomb explodes at a small hydroelectric station in northern Spain Tuesday morning, causing light damage to the facility, a federal government spokesman said.

"At 10 a.m., the civil guard found the remains of an explosion in a little building that pertains to a small electrical station," the spokesman in Zaragoza province told CNN.

"The damage was of slight consideration."

The bomb exploded near the town of Anon de Moncayo, about 200 miles (325 kilometers) north of Madrid.

Media reports said warning calls from Basque separatist group ETA were placed ahead of the explosion.
From the terrorist perspective, this strategy makes perfect sense. After all, they have in front of them an administration that thinks that events like these do not mean that talks should end, but validate even more the need of dialogue and negotiation.

UPDATE. I didn't know that Zapatero is supposed to be in Zaragoza, the capital city of the province where the blast happened, today (link in Spanish). I guess this leaves the message even clearer.
