The Players: "El Generalissimo"

"I shall never bombard Madrid, there are innocent people
there whom I have no wish to expose to danger."

General Francisco Franco to a correspondent of
Petit Parisien. August 16th 1936.

He lied.

As dictators do.

He probably had every intention of bombing Barcelona.

And he did.

194 times.

A last public statue of the dictator (equestrian) perpetrator
of so many crimes, was finally removed from the entrance to the
Military Academy in Zaragoza in August 2006.
