Another wake-up call for Europe

And this time with no loss of life, thank God. The Madrid bombings certainly had an impact on European opinion, but it was too easy for pacifists to attribute the attack wholly to Spanish participation in the war to topple Saddam. Granted, it's still too early to know who's responsible, but this could prove much harder to explain:

French railroad worker found an explosive device buried in the bed of a railway line heading from France to Switzerland on Wednesday, the Interior Ministry said.

Bomb disposal experts neutralized the device, which was half-buried under a track in the village of Montieramey, on a train line heading from Paris to Basel, Switzerland, the ministry said in a statement. It was discovered shortly after noon.
