Nobody Expects the Spanish Civil War

Well this Catalonian secession situation certainly seems to be escalating
Spain was plunged into crisis Friday as Madrid seized power from independence-seeking Catalonia,

  The previous vote for independence was a vote to begin coordinating with Spain on a peaceful transition to an independent Catalonia. Given that the response from the Spanish government has been an emphatic "NO!", Catalonias regional parliament today flat out declared independence, to much cheering from the Catlans and jeering from the rest of Spain. The Spanish government responded by declaring the Catalan Parliament void, dissolving it, charging the Catalan PM and several MPs with felonies  and declaring that there will be an election on December 21. The Catalonians, in defiance of Madrid, have called for civil disobedience in response.

It's a good thing that Spanish Civil Wars aren't human abattoirs that historically have tended to foreshadow even darker times to follow around the world...


Perhaps now would not be a good time to remind everyone that the last remaining title of archduke in the world is held by the King of Spain.
