Will Catalonia secede from Spain?

I suspect Spain will fire all elected leadership and police/security services of Catalonia, take over the region's finances etc, and send its own military to restore order. I highly doubtful Catalonia is prepared to fight for their independence -- heck, I'm not even sure they have the capability. And if they don't fight, they are not truly independent.

Barcelona will be the hottest party spot on the planet this weekend. But doubtful the independence will be materialized.
I've spent some time there and can attest to the ferociously with which Catalas defend their identity. As I can to their laziness, but then again this might apply to the rest of Spain too :p

All will be back to normal after the fiesta and siesta.

In general the concept of "any group of people can whimsically declare independence because they ascribe to a certain ethnic or religious identity" is bullshit in my opinion.

It's not independence if you're not willing to fight for it! We'll see what happens though when Spain triggers article 155 of the constitution, I'm inclined to believe that this time there will be no fighting lol

I think the world overall, the middle east particularly, needs to have more sophisticated and robust systems of federal administration.
I'm talking about large scale, not splitting Martyr square in two :p
Kind of like what the EU is doing, the essence of it at least...

It's not like Syria was ever a sovereign country for it to claim ownership of Lebanon.

Lebanon is just one of the countries that resulted from the paritition of the Ottoman empire.

I don't see how this is relevant to Catalonia's independence. Catalonia has been part of Spain since the 15th century and Catalans have signed the constitution which states that Spain's unity is indivisible. They can't simply break away now.

The French made a deal with the Ja'afari Ameli Shi'a to recognize the Ja'afari Courts in return for Matawelah consent to independence of Greater Lebanon. This is the explanation.
