Another separatist case emerges?

Guardian: Angry Canary Islanders brace for an unwanted guest - the oil industry

RIA: Canaries Head Informs Madrid of Possible Rebellion Due to Oil Exploration

(Notice that RIA uses the word "rebellion", Guardian and a couple of other sites does not. I'm too lazy to check the original Spanish source.

Sounds like a good incentive for the Canary Island residents to declare independence. That way they could control the oil, which would then belong to them, not Spain.

What about Plan B? ... if the 'revolution' fails are there ethnic Russian's in the Canary Islands that Putin can use as an excuse to invade?

Depends where is your target. Currently encircling Europe with missile bases in the east and in the west would be a good strategy.
