Actually, there's lots more for which to criticize the Socialist government of Spain than just its approach to Cuba. Ever since Spanish PM Zippo was elected by the fearful Spanish electorate after the Madrid 311 bombings, it has been downhill for US-Spain relations. Almost immediately after being elected PM Zippo (Zapatero) pulled Spanish troops out of Iraq in a humiliating cut and run that was a clearly victory for Al Qaeda. Soon after Zippo was elected PM, he tried to telephone Bush. The US President would not return his calls. Instead of fighting the Spanish terrorist group ETA, Zippo tried to negotiate. His tactic of negotiating with terrorists has been a failure, see second article cited below.
