U.S. Officials Bash ‘Shitty’ Belgian Security Forces

U.S. counterterrorism officials are frustrated and angry at Belgium’s inability to tackle ISIS terror cells that are successfully plotting murderous attacks on the West from inside the country’s tiny capital city.

The twin terror attacks in Brussels that left at least 30 dead and 230 injured on Tuesday, despite repeated warnings from Washington, left U.S. officials fuming.

A senior U.S. intelligence officer likened the Belgian security forces to “children.”


In the wake of the Brussels Muslim terror attack the Belgians immediately deployed their secret anti-terror weapon – Sad pictures of Tin Tin. This was the final piece of a determined anti-terror strategy which included candles, flowers, chalk messages in public squares, and singing John Lennon’s “Imagine” while looking sad and reflective. Muslim terrorists the world over now know what they are dealing with.

    Imagine, FN Herstal located in a land of pussys…how ironic.

      It might not be long before FN is controlled my muzzies.

    A commenter at Instapundit claimed that the Belgium prohibits police raids in the middle of the night. Don’t know if that’s true or not but given how crazy European elites are . . .

    • lolwut?

      Heard that on MSM as well over the last few months.

      I can’t remember where I heard it, but an official in Belgium confirmed it
      and they were trying to get that rule changed.

      They are not permitted to raid from 9pm to 5am according to a schtoopid 1967 law. They’re doomed.


    • It is absolutely true and is the reason they missed on one occassion the Paris attack Jihadi Salah Abdeslam they captured last week, he slipped out during the night and they did not have the area properly sealed off.

      Belgium Says Law Limiting Raids May Have Allowed Suspect in Paris Attacks to Escape

      PARIS — The authorities in Belgium said on Wednesday that one of the Paris attackers may have been holed up in a house in Brussels two nights after 130 people were killed and hundreds more injured — but that he could have escaped because of a law banning police raids on private homes from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m., according to the country’s justice minister.

      The revelation by the justice minister, Koen Geens, that the suspect, France’s most wanted man — Salah Abdeslam — might have gotten away because of an arcane law intended to safeguard family privacy only adds to the picture of a severely dysfunctional and ineffective government in Belgium.

    Belgium is a construct that has long outlived its uselessness.

    • It’s a country that no one likes anyway;)

        I like it. Great brussel sprouts.

        I liked it in the 80’s, it was a nice place with friendly and well educated people that where knowledgeable in literature, art and history.
        We used to go there during the weekend to see the beautiful old cities and dine with our Belgian friends in the excellent restaurants.
        I have great memories of the place and feel sad that these people got such a raw deal handed to them, by the political elite that let mass immigration happen.
        I wish them all the best, but I’am afraid that it’s not going to end well.

      There is a distinct literature, in military history, which trashes the Belgian army in WWI and WWII. In both wars Belgium was invaded by a small portion of the German war machine, and quickly overrun.

      I am finishing reading “Catastrophe: 1914” which covers the run up and the first six months of WWI (a good book by the way). The book devotes a few pages to the comic-opera Belgian army. The army went into the war with these ridiculous-looking top hats, hats that looked like the soldiers were off to a bank to work. In WWII, Belgium refused to allow the French and British armies to enter its territory, much preferring to take on the German war machine on its own.

      In recent years, Belgium stupidly has allowed huge numbers of militant Muslims to settle into ghettos, draw welfare, and to set up underground death squads. So there is an analogy of Belgium being the patsy today, as in previous world wars.

    BTW, is there a linky?

  • Hard Little Machine

    They didn’t have a national government for years because the Flemish and Walloons couldn’t agree on one. Belgium is really 3 countries: French Belgium, Dutch Belgium and Brussels.

    Woeful as the Belgians may be, the implication here is that U.S. officials would prevent any such attacks from happening stateside. Umm…San Bernardino, anyone? Sounds rather like God-Himself-couldn’t-sink-the-Titanic hubris to me.

    Forget TinTin – they’ve got new signs ready to go up that will surely do the trick. From Gates of Vienna:

      Well, I seemingly can’t get Disqus to post the picture I wanted to (I wish as a guest that you could edit a post after putting it up). Anyway, here’s the link to the picture I was trying to post – it’s kind of cute:

    You just knew they were going to haul out Tin Tin
