In this morning's IHT I noticed the following letter to the editor. it is good to see that other people ask ( themselves and others ) questions similar to those that I have been asking for a long time. Terror in Spain Sometimes you read an article that leads to an obvious question, and it's very frustrating when the writer doesn't ask it. Apparently there are hundreds of Islamist militants preparing terrorist strikes in Spain ("Spain still thwarting Islamists' terror plot," March 14). The obvious question is why? The Madrid bombings gave the Islamists what they wanted: a change in government and the withdrawal of Spanish troops from Iraq. So what do they want now? I'm sure there are a lot of informed people in Spain who could enlighten us about this, but of course they have to be asked. Richard Kalvar, Paris
