Retaliation for capturing that Paris attacker? They should have anticipated and gone for lockdown or increased presence.

13 killed 36 seriously injured.BRT reports.Shouts in Arabic before blasts and gunfire. Departure area devastated, eyewitness.Metro station is the one EU staff use.In fact,Brussels is both the HQ of the EU and NATO. Islamists have struck at the heart of Europe.Attacks were coordinated.

Labour MEP Claude Moraes, the chairman of the European Parliament's civil liberties, justice and home affairs committee, said Belgium had a high number of radicalised Islamic extremists and an attack was 'inevitable'.

Wasn't brussels under lockdown for long after Paris attack? Will be interesting to see whether these were the same attackers who were going to attack at that time or a new group?

No one in Paris/Brussels gives a flying fack for terror strikes in desh.
Libtartds will now start I stand with Brussels fb display pic non sense.. We here dont have to give undue importance to actions by "non state" actors overseas. As a peace loving and law abiding country , India must ask Brussels to exercise restraint and compile a dossier of proof.

Request mods to start an "International terror attacks" thread.

Maelbeek metro is where the explosions in the metro took place. Its in the EU offices area. I take that route from the central station and pass Maelbeek and Schuman on my way back from central station.

The lockdown was for the first few weeks after the Paris attack. During the lockdown metros, movie theaters and shopping centers were closed. Even after the metros, movie theaters and shopping centers opened there was heavy army presence. The army was even patrolling near the University area of Brussels where I live. I leave for work at 5:30am and catch the 630am or 706am train to Chareleroi. I did not get wind of what happened until I got to work. I am pretty sure there is going to be heavy police presence in the Chareleroi train station (if it is opened). Our building is also across the Chareleroi airport and one can hear the police sirens.

BTW as much as I feel sad, Really there isn't much I care about what happens to those who defended the terrorists when we were being slaughtered.

Think it is high time for such a thread. Please post all news,comment article concerning European Security Environment Here.

Am all right. Brussels Airport had no security what so ever. Anybody could go till baggage drop counter and carry anything. It was a major security lap and somebody will have to answer for that. We were very much relaxed here. Now everybody is panicking. Everything is closed.

CNN has stated that they will only call it an incident as full facts have not been confirmed. Also RT is stating 17 killed.

Even the metros have no security. I see so many people ramming their way through the doors without paying or using the STIB pass. Things are going to get a lot different now.

So they went into lockdown for days after paris attack with army conducting patrols around the city. And then they raised decreased the security without covering up obvious security holes? They were just asking for the attacks to happen.

In my opinion they have refused to see the elephant in the room. Molenbeek is Malsi central and they should have had constant HUMIT on that place. They should have gamed all this after the arrest.

Belgian justice minister Koen Geens has said that Belgian investigators are still to establish the true identity of the terrorist suspect detained together with Salah Abdeslam in a ground floor apartment in a town house in Molenbeek on Friday. Mr Geens was also keen to stress the global nature of terrorism.

The arrest of their munna from Paris attack fame from molenbeek last week triggered this. Under drugs he would sing. Use it or lose it decision.

Looks like a joint op of EU and US . This will give excuse to the EU to snoop more on its citizens and pay more jaziya to Turkey without any objection from EU residents. Well, the EU can't even make bombastic comments ala Hollande. So , it's time to give more weapons, training & money to ISIS aka moderate rebels.

After this, Trump will get a clear win in Primaries.

Soon there will be the formation of Neo-Templer Knights in Europe, or it will become Eurabia. There is no third way.
