The end of Basque separatist violence?

Martin Tonner sees ETA's truce declaration as a hopeful sign: "The Spaniards received ETA's announcement yesterday that it was declaring a truce with mixed feelings of relief and concern, cautious optimism and deep scepticism. In the past, hopes that the terrorist organisation would listen to democratic reasoning have turned out to be naive. The last time ETA declared a truce back in 1998, it presented the conservative government of the time with absurd terms for continued peace. Since then, however, the Madrid massacre has brought about lasting changes in the rules of the terrorist game. To sum up: this is the beginning of the end of ETA."
