A suicide bomber blew himself up at Brussels airport on Tuesday killing at least 11 people and a further blast tore through a rush-hour metro train in the capital shortly afterwards, claiming 10 lives, according to public broadcaster VRT.

My condolences to Brussels. It looks messy.

I don't get the attacks on EU states and all this massive influx of terrorism

They came in with the massive influx of refugees that fled the terrorism hot spot of the world.

My most solemn thoughts are with the families, and loved ones. The world is utterly insane.

That's what you get for showing "compassion" A shame that innocent civilians have to suffer the consequences of politicians actions/decisions.

Close to home, very close.

That said, I don't believe they came with the refugees as so many of you love to believe.
These guys are hidden in plain sight, have been for months or even years, planning their attacks below anyone's radar and strike at the right time.

Most of the people responsible for the attacks here were born right here in Europe and have European passports.

George_z,

That brings up a question. I've seen repeatedly in the news here in the USA how they keep catching people who either are trying to get over to the terrorist groups for training or have just returned from said training. Obviously there are probably a few who manage to slip through the cracks and may cause problems over here. Do you see that sort of thing going on in Europe? Europeans going and being trained elsewhere in terrorism then returning and causing havoc?

Doubtful, Belgium already had home grown problems going back decades. The Paris attacks were launched from Belgium by French and Belgian citizens remember. Belgium is a hub for this and its not just Islamist terrorist groups that have used/are using it as a base of operations. Its been host left wing groups, communist groups, the IRA, you name it. Its been a staging point for terrorist attacks going all the way back to the 70s.

\Its centrally located between key targets ( UK, France, Germany ), has a small and not particularly effective intelligence community, its police forces are splintered into multiple ineffective districts, it has open borders and an unfortunate illegal firearm trade. Its the best place in the EU to gear up and launch an attack from.

The refugee crisis just provides good cover to move around the EU easier and a convenient scapegoat.

Most terrorist attacks in the last few years in EU have been conducted by EU citizens that did just that. Went overseas for training then returned to attack domestically. I can't think of a attack that was purely foreign nationals.

Edit: Yeah, gotta go back 6 years to find an real attack by someone not born in the EU ( but he was still a citizen ).

So the majority of refugees are what? Guilty civilians?

My heart sinks a bit more every time I wake up to news and events like this.

it sinks for the families of all those killed or hurt involved on both sides.

it makes my heart sink to just how much more of a wedge it drives between races, creeds and cultures due to ignorance and hatred.

It really ought not to though. Considering the various atrocities which have been committed by innumerable religious sects throughout history which have not had those racial wedges bound to them

Terrorism wasn't bad enough in the middle east, so other countries have decided to import it to spread the joy.
