Terrible news from the Belgium capital.
Suicide bombers are the weapon we cant defend against.

Yes the horrible wee cowards strike again. Predictable.

Border controls might have helped defend against them DJ!!

Brussels of all places.... maybe the EU will get the message.... too late??

It's dreadful what has happened in Brussels.

Two explosion's at the Airport, and an explosion at two Metro Station's, one of them being a suicide bomber.

At least 23 people dead and 35 injured.

It makes me wonder what kind of Religion Islam is.

It worries me when the same thing's will happen in Britain.

Well , todays terrorist attack in Brussels doesn't say much for the Security in that country or for that matter the rest of Europe and I include North America , " No matter what we are told , there isn't enough being done to protect the public as they go about their daily lives . and now I wonder when and where will the next attack occur .

In the news ,it seems to me that all we hear are so called experts on terrorism , and assuming that they know what they are talking about our governments are not listening ,

This morning I watched part of an American TV. news program and they had managed to get Hilary Clinton on the phone , and the jist of her talk was that , we are not doing enough to defeat terrorism ... when the news program interrupted the phone conversation and actually cut her off and showed commercials .

I then put the TV off . angry.gif

It is sickening that they only choose soft targets, they don't choose places where people are trained to defend, just people catching a flight or going to work.

Then shouting in Arabic before they die - sickening, words fail why we still have this problem

It will not go away, it will only get worse.

Which city will be next I wonder, or will it once again be Brussels, I certainly hope not, but that's the nature of the beast we're dealing with, they can hit any time and any place, we are all being held to ransom.

Islamic State are cowards.

To be honest, Carmella, the cowards of equal measure are the politicians who fervently pursued policies to first create the problem and are now too scared to implement an effective solution. No that is cowardly too.

The problem is, how would we know who those people are.

The one's in Brussels were dressed as traveller's pushing a trolley with their luggage. How would anyone have known they were evil swine's out to murder as many people as they could.

A person who seeks refuge can be anywhere. In this case, refuge from an IS terrorist attack in Belgium.
