Belgium is, again, fighting the enemy within

This morning, Belgium became the latest European country to have suffered a major terrorist attack. The scenes in Brussels serve as a grotesque reminder of the war that has not gone away. After the arrest of Salah Abdeslam, chief suspect over atrocities at the Bataclan centre in Paris last November, Belgian officials warned of the prospect of revenge attacks: perhaps spectacular atrocities, aiming at killing hundreds. They came four days later in Brussels airport and Metro — a demonstration of the jihadis’ ability to act quickly. And a reminder that their capacity for atrocity is far from exhausted.

After such an attack we can expect to be offered a blizzard of explanations, many of them erroneous.

  • “Two, possibly three intact explosive devices have been found in raids conducted at more than one location in Brussels, two law enforcement officials tell NBC News. It was reported earlier that an IED containing nails was located during raids in the Schaerbeek neighborhood, but it is not clear where these newly reported discoveries were made.”

        Coming to a City near you.

        Obama said he wants the guilty people brought to justice.
        Someone tell this dolt the concept of a suicide-bomber.
        They leave very little behind to drag into a Courtroom and face Obama’s version of Justice .
        Reminds me of Hilary trying to pin Benghazi on Chris Stevens as she fabricates the conversations with him to help back her version of what happened.
        Fact is , Stevens was gay and she should have known not to put him there and surrounded by islamic homophobes because he was gay-raped and chopped up.

        Amazingly, we know that equation but we still allow immigration from Islamic countries and we are welcoming Muslim “refugees” from Syria.

        Elites fail because they cannot recognize that simple problems have simple solutions. While not all Muslims are terrorists, the vast majority of terrorists are Muslims. Until we can separate the wheat from the chaff it would be wise to simply declare a moratorium on all Muslim immigration and travel to the West. Trump recognizes this. The rest of the idiots don’t.

          They do they just also know who butters their bread…it used to be called sedition now its just every day bullshit! A friend of mine is married to a muslim, and he IS a nice guy, yet she’s always trying to tell me about all the terrible things Christians have done so I asked her the other day “when the last time she saw a Christian holding a recently severed human head?” Think she’s mad at me now.

        BCF – that be raaayciss!

        This has nothing to do with Islam – I understand that Daesh has claimed responsibility.

    Wrong ! Belgium was not simply the latest European “country” to suffer a major terrorist attack. As Rush points out, it was Brussels, the throne of the European utopian dream that was violated by islamic-totalitarian scum. It was the beacon of socialist nirvana that took it in the teeth from the mohammedans. When will they learn ?

      “It was the beacon of socialist nirvana that took it in the teeth from the mohammedans. When will they learn ?”
      They will learn exactly at the time that the socialist nirvana’s craven leaders personally take it in the teeth instead of just the normal everyday people going about their normal everyday business.

    The enemy within? Rather the enemy they let in.
