Default Catalan Independence Referendum

Apparently, the Catalans held a referendum on independence today.

The Spanish government sent in the stormtroopers with tear gas to crush heads.

I'm no fan of independence movements, but this action by the Spanish government is beyond stupid.

Apparently, some 90% of Catalans voted in favor.

So now Spain has a seriously messy situation with no easy solutions and one huge mountain of animosity between the Catalans and the Spanish government. Having Catalonia vote for independence is bad enough for Spain, but Spain just shot themselves in both feet out of spite it seems.
