Spain's weakest border, . . . by only the narrow Strait of Gibraltar
Maritime terrorism: a new challenge for NATO
Before he was caught, Nashiri had also planned an operation to bomb American and British warships in the Strait of Gibraltar, off the northern coast of Morocco. In response to this intelligence, NATO allies coordinated efforts to improve security in the western Mediterranean, particularly around the Straits of Gibraltar. The alliance launched a preemptive policy of stopping and boarding suspicious ships. Another measure involved escorting tankers through the Straits of Gibraltar by German naval vessels. In the aftermath of the Madrid bombings, blamed on Moroccan terrorists, there is growing concern about al Qaeda and affiliated terrorist infiltration across the Strait of Gibraltar into Europe. Spain's weakest border is its southern coast separated from Northern Africa by only the narrow Strait of Gibraltar.8
This Zapatero Is An Athiest
The above topic Benny started can indeed interlink.
I was given two messages, that have connections to Spain. One was dated, 11-22-08 :

RE: Dream confirmation : 18 Candle's On A Cake, ETA TERRORIST [Basque+France/Spain]
Below is the confirmation about the SYMBOLIC three sets, of 6 candles on the cake, making the 18 months/18 candles message of the dream coming into fruition, January 1st, 2010 adding 18 months, the three EU presidencies (Spanish, Belgian and Hungarian) take turns EVERY 6 months, until the 18 month period has concluded, with Spain starting 1st, in the EU . . . Lisbon Treaty. The news article confirming this announcement was Published: Friday 30 October 2009. ( published approx. 9 months after the dream info )
I had this dream, January 5, 2009, called : Dream : 18 Candle's On A Cake, ETA TERRORIST GROUP [Basque+France/Spain]
Dream : 18 Candle's on a Cake
ETA TERRORIST GROUP
Monday, 01-05-2009, I had a dream about 18 candles on a cake.
The candles were on top of the cake in rows of six. ( 6 + 6 + 6 )
I knew that each individual candle represented a terrorist strike event.
And the three rows were units in military planning :
The 1st row of 6 = the logistical
The 2nd row of 6 = military
The 3rd row of 6 = political sections
The following terrorist group is related to the dream, that is why I saw
three rows ( three substructures ), of candles.
ETA has changed its internal structure on several occasions for different reasons, commonly security ones. The group used to have a very hierarchical organisation with a leading figure at the top, delegating into three substructures: the logistical, military and political sections. Reports from the Spanish and French police point towards significant changes in ETA's structures in recent years.

United Kingdom and Gibraltar (England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland)
The phone number for police/fire/ambulance emergency services – the equivalent of 911 in the United States – is 999 in the United Kingdom and 112 in Gibraltar. This number should also be used for warnings about possible bombs or other immediate threats. The UK Anti-Terrorist Hotline, at 0800-789-321, is for tips and confidential information about possible terrorist activity.
U.S. citizens should take steps to ensure the safety of their U.S. passports. Visitors in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and Gibraltar are not expected to produce identity documents for police authorities and thus may secure their passports in hotel safes or residences.
Driving in Gibraltar is on the right side of the road, as in the United States and continental Europe. Persons traveling overland between Gibraltar and Spain may experience long delays in clearing Spanish border controls.

Significantly there have also been specific threats against British tankers close to European waters. In June 2002 the Moroccan government arrested a group of al-Qaeda operatives suspected of plotting attacks on US and British tankers in the Straits of Gibraltar.
The intention of such attacks is not primarily physical damage, but economic impact. A few months before the planned attacks on British and US tankers off Gibraltar an online jihadist article appeared about the advantages of bombing tankers which stated:
"it is well known that the American economy will not be able to endure whatsoever the rise in oil prices."
A fundamental principle of security planning is to make oneself less of a target, or at least a more difficult target to hit, than others. Terrorists always look for weak spots. Allowing the greatest concentration of oil tankers in the western world, including some of the world's largest supertankers, to anchor off our coast doesn’t quite seem to qualify as making us less of a target…
Astonishingly, it is our own government that has actually caused this concentration of tankers from around the world to anchor off the Suffolk coast by specifically designating this as the one place in the UK where offshore ship to ship oil transfers would be allowed. Both this and the government’s continued dragging of its heels over when it will finally ban this practice does not simply indicate a degree of incompetence. Perhaps more significantly, it also indicates the government’s real state of thinking about preventing terrorism. Whilst tackling climate change is now a cross departmental responsibility, it would appear that the same degree of priority has yet be given to preventing terrorism.
What this situation illustrates is that the UK needs a government with a whole new paradigm in the way it thinks about preventing terrorism.
