    Europe is going to have to figure this out quickly, stuff like this cannot be semi-annual.

    The fundamental issue is that Belgium is a failed state.

    Similar can be said about America's Ferguson, a city that self destructs semi-annually.

    What! How is it a failed state? Because it has no government at the moment? If that's the case you can put down Ireland as a "failed state" as well.
    Reports of bomb at tube station now,system shut down.

    When more than half the population has an outstanding warrant you've certainly failed - yes.

    Not really. Because the vast majority of the time Ireland has a government. Belgium doesn't.

    No doubt the nefarious work of Christian extremists or Trump supporters. I can't think of anyone else who would commit such an atrocity.

    At least it shows they've got some semblance of democracy.

    While I'm sure they will catch most of the people involved that didn't kill themselves I think ISIS or whatever group was responsible just gave Trump the election in the US.

    An explosion by a suicide bomber would have occurred around 8:00 pm at the American Airlines counter at the airport in Brussel. Witnesses report that was first shot in the departure area, then jelled Arabic sentences. After that there were two explosion.

    In total there are now 13 deaths and serious injuries (airport and metrostations)

    Now they confirmed it has been a terrorist attack. Damn they're showing us the security cameras from the airport where you can see the explosions and victims....unbelievable

    What they wanted was open borders so they can setup the sleeper cells. They want America to put down it's guard like Europe did. They want Americans to fear offending them. They want gun free zones. They want Hillary Clinton for President. Hillary's solution is the same as Obama's and that's why we are where we are.

    Enjoy the ride, you've earned it.

    I wonder if she has any idea of the damage she's caused. She could be the center point of the fall of Europe. Her and Hillary are cut from the same cloth.

    I saw your post and this is indeed the new face of Europe unfortunately...this all because of political discord.

    Now we have the message that there is a new bomb threat.. I won't be surprised if this is going on all day long. They now take justice. It might have to do with the arrest of Abdeslam

    There are now around 30 deaths.

    It's very telling about human nature that many saw this coming and their words were ignored.

    People were warned and they responded with remarks about racist, hate, etc... Soon, they may start to realize they've destroyed Europe. At least America gets a free preview of their future.

    I hope Trump makes another video that has pics like this.

    Exactly what you said! There are taking measurements here in the Netherlands and other countries in Europe. Nobody and nothing will stop them of doing suicides. We can't even look into our future anymore here in Europe. I'm just speechless.....

    Saw this coming a mile away. Merkel and others need to fess up and start rounding 'em up and sending 'em back.

    This is nothing to do with failed state or political discord

    It to do with inability to act due to political correctness

    Just look at the issues in the UK with the rape houses in Bradford or the left wing female major of Cologne who said that "women shouldn't stand so close to men"

    No one wants to talk about the real issues just irrelevant stuff. And when speaking about the cause the best they can do is blame wars in the Middle East which have nothing to do with it.

    We face a major worldwide extremist ideology which gets stronger by the day because we fail to face it due to cognitive dissonance

    It's not fighting wars that is needed. It's simply protecting ourselves, our borders and our friends around the world

    The west still has a few more years to sort this out but the clock is running and it frankly doesn't look good in Europe, from where I am standing.

    Maybe as someone suggested above, the US gets a sneak preview and eventually does something about it. Certainly need a paradigm shift against political correctness.

    That's exactly what Geert Wilders from the PVV (political party) said this morning

    There's now talk of multiple casualties at the Metro station in addition to the airport. This one is looking very bad indeed.

    We covered this before about how political correctness kills. Such as what happened in America at an Army base where a deranged man killed, and people came forward afterward to state that they feared being labeled Islamophobic after witnessing questionable behaviors time and again.

    What I said before, there will be more suicides and/or bombs threats coming up today
    It really looks bad even here in at the train station in Amsterdam platforms are closed and extra security. It definitely does something with you

    Has BLM tweeted yet that this tragedy should not detract attention away from their aggressive and violent campaign to suppress Trump's freedom of speech and assembly? Like BLM did during the height of their collegiate exploits, complaining of being unfairly interrupted by France's terrorist tragedy?
