The new war in Morocco destabilized the internal situation. On the one hand, it deepened political divisions. The repression in the wake of the Tragic Week unleashed a wave of protests in Spain and abroad against Maura’s government, leading to a new political alignment, a united front between liberals, republicans and socialists that threatened the political system itself. In his memoirs, Count Romanones, one of the principal investors in the Moroccan mines, frequently a Liberal minister and thrice Spanish Premier, tells an anecdote that reveals the extent to which the war had become unpopular among the people.
The military came increasingly to dominate policy-making and its implementation in the area.

The Germanophiles then became the most ardent defenders of strict neutrality.
