The article has some info on motivations for the crisis, but fails to explain the most important part: What was it? What did Germany do to provoke the crisis, and what were the reactions? Could use serious expansion. Dpenn89 (talk) 22:20, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Needs Revision

Most of this article appears to be lifted directly from at Unless the authors are the same or have permission frofuck bitches get money g

It should be structured better. It does not give any relevant information. -elam —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:42, 30 March 2008 (UTC)

"He decided to test the new friendship between Britain and France, who had until recently been involved in imperial rivalries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific. His calculation was that such a crisis would reveal the weakness of ties between the two powers and that Britain would not be prepared to offer a strong support to France in a situation where war would be in sight"

that is speculation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:33, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

The English of this article[edit]

Is pretty "meh" to be honest, and there are some grammatical and tone-related issues that could be sorted out in the article. Read the first paragraph and you'll know what I'm referring to! Cheers. (talk) 06:58, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Tangier Garrison[edit]

This link doesn't seem relevant to the article - the linked article is about a garrison in Tangier over 200 years previously, when it was an independent entity. I'm deleting the link for now. — Preceding unsigned comment added by V. Stevko (talkcontribs) 07:04, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Secrecy of Anglo-French and Franco-Spanish agreements[edit]

I've removed the word 'secret' from the Background section. This may be partly, but only partly, in error. The provisions of the Anglo-French agreement of April 8, 1904 pertaining to French actions in Morocco were made public at the time, per both Grey of Fallodon and Entente Cordiale. I don't have a source for the Franco-Spanish agreement though.--V. Stevko (talk) 08:17, 17 April 2012 (UTC)

Lead Paragraph[edit]

I've rewritten the lead paragraph, attempting to explain what happened, why it happened, & why it matters. The rest of the article needs work (and possibly the new lead as well), but I hope this will provide something to build on. --V. Stevko (talk) 08:42, 17 April 2012 (UTC)
