Bombs in Brussels

Brussels Zaventem airport explosions: At least 11 dead as third bomb 'found on runway'. Third bomb found on runway, reports of more explosions at three metro stations, including one close to EU buildings.

BREAKING NEWS: At least 11 13 23 28 34 people dead and 50 150 187 wounded after two explosions rock Brussels Airport in 'suicide bombing' - as SECOND 'terror attack' hits Metro station near EU headquarters SECOND 'terror attack' hits Metro station in city centre.
  • Shouts 'in Arabic' heard before two explosions went off near the American Airlines check-in desk at 8am (7am GMT)
  • Terrified passengers covered in blood ran for their lives after explosion sent 'shockwaves' through terminal building
  • Reports of another explosion at a Metro station near the EU headquarters in the Maelbeek area of central Brussels
  • Evacuated passengers are being ferried onto buses and are being driven to a 'crisis centre' away from the airport
  • Comes a day after Belgium minister warned of revenge attacks after arrest of Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam 
 Immigrants are why you can't have nice things.

    One would think this will tend to speed up Reconquesta 2.0 in Europe, but we'll see. Regardless, don't get too complacent. This sort of attack is coming the USA soon thanks to the millions of Islamic immigrants who have been permitted to enter the country. I would not be at all surprised if it started in Minnesota, most likely at the Megamall.

    It belatedly occurs to me that there is an important Republican primary today. These immigrant attacks mean that Donald Trump will win Arizona handily, which means that he is virtually guaranteed the delegates he needs.

    UPDATE: "Brussels Fire rep. tells NBC that there have been at least 4 explosions at different metro stations."

    So let's recap. The terrorist Salah Abdeslam was able to hide in his own home district for FOUR FUCKING MONTHS while being the most wanted man in Europe.

    Just four days after his arrest, his jihadist fellows are able to launch a coordinated attack on Brussels. If it isn't a retaliation, boy does it look like it.

    At this point refusing to acknowledge the problem should be akin to complicity of crime.

    Belgians are completely incompetent. Politicians, justice services, security services ... are always reacting, always a few steps behind. The only reason Abdeslham was arrested is pure luck. Amateurs.

    Blogger Mandos March 22, 2016 5:13 AM  

    @9 That would imply Abdeslam knows something about future plans because the jihadi cells are small. I wonder if his fellow jihadis would keep feeding the most wanted man in Europe with highly sensible intelligence. These guys may be fanatics, but they are not necessarily stupid.

    Don't be a complete moron. There are plenty of gun-free zones. And concealed carry doesn't stop a suicide vest or a car bomb.

    I don't know if they've changed the access from the parking ramps or not, but back when I lived in Minnesota, you could have driven multiple cars into the Megamall, driven them into various positions around the mall, and detonated them. The death toll from an attack like that would be in the thousands and there would be nothing a concealed carry holder could do to stop it.

    Boston was shut down for how long by two guys with guns? A nail bomb and common weapons.

    At the time I wondered how much economic activity didn't happen as a result. Boston is one of the drivers for the high tech economy, and it stopped. The US is extremely vulnerable to this type of attack. Partly due to the novelty and overreaction of law enforcement. It would require a bit of effort but I suspect a coordinated low budget attack could have a substantial part of the US under lockdown.

    The thing about Mumbai was, there were cops in the train station that had rifles. But in that culture, no policeman is going to take the shot without explicit instructions to do so. The cops hid along with everyone else.

    At the mall in Nairobi, the responding police were more interested in what they could loot rather than taking down the shooters.

    I would. I think you are underestimating the effect of group conditioning. The Islamic religion promotes Jihad, that is why they are able to maintain their civilizational standards while regularly killing and terrorizing everyone around them. The Western religions do not encourage Jihad as a standard default mode of interaction, and so to go to war requires collective assent. Whether formally or informally.

    Anonymous Lazarus March 22, 2016 7:16 AM  

    It has been said before, but bears repeating. The only way to flush out the covert jihadis is to make the muslim population more afraid of the rest of the citizenry than they are of their jihadis.

    Blogger The Kurgan March 22, 2016 7:20 AM  

    You obviously have no understanding of several things. First of all, as an overall general point, Muslims do not HAVE civilisational standards. They borrow them from the West. Secondly the average Belgian is not religious. Third, the emotive and frankly low-rationality of the average Frenchman or Belgian has a breaking point past which they become quite aggressive and fixated and it really doesn't require collective anything to trigger it off.
    And if enough individual triggering a of emotive Belgians happens, then it will be a cascade effect and very quickly you will have no more brown people in Belgium, never mind Muslims.

    @The Kurgan

    I admit there is quite a lot of stuff I do not understand. I probably don't even understand that I don't understand.

    First off, borrowed standards are standards. Either they do not have standards, or they did borrow them, both statements cannot be true.

    Second, religiosity is not at issue. You may be right, I do not know the Belgian mind. My assumption is based on observation of people in general. And that is, that culture does not grow up in a vacuum. Better men than me have argued that the European civilization is Christian. This would imply even the atheism takes on a Christian tone. That is the basis for what I said.

    Third, well, that's why I said "informal consensus". If your view was correct to degree you assert, then we would have seen a mass amount of spontaneous revenge killings by "emotive and low rationality" of the average Frenchman. I am saying we have not because that informal consensus has not been reached. When it does, that will be a different story. I believe that currently isn't.

    So. Twelve Oaks Mall it is, then.

    Or Detroit Metro. They appear to have finally cottoned on to how soft those targets really are.

    Airports have been protected up until now by a halo effect from Ben Gurion Airport. Which is one of the hardest targets out there.

    Muslims may have known intellectually that western airports were soft but because of Tel Aviv they felt hard to them because nothing ever gets past the gate there.

    Honestly I can't think of anyplace easier to hit than American airports, that's including the malls. They are just ideal as targets.

    Colt lost the M16 contract in 1988, and all of a sudden the Army decided it needed a 14.5 inch barrel carbine, which knocks off ~325 yards of its effective range with standard M193 (Vietnam era) and M855 (green tip, copy of the FN SS109 designed for machine guns) ammo, not exactly a winner in Afghanistan. The Marines stuck with their 20 inch M16s.

    Now there's been another contract cycle, FN is now allowed to sell us AR-15 pattern rifles, and Colt has lost its M4 exclusivity. Although bankrupt and desperate they recently won a bid, the Army's has now decided that the 3 round burst trigger with its inconsistent semi-auto trigger pull was a mistake and full auto is OK after all....

    @150. Because mormons tend to be, in America, the more sheltered, reasonably affluent white middle class that hasn't so much suffered (yet) directly from the effects of our feckless immigration policy, they are part of a larger subset of of conservative voters who tend to focus on the "muh Constitution" aspect of traditionally conservative voters, and they find Trump's style to be gauche, and rather tend to disbelieve that the problems he's correctly identifying are as big of an issue as they really are. They're somewhat short-sighted and in a dense bubble of insulation that they don't even perceive. I get this nonsense all of the time from members of the church that I talk to about this election cycle; they tend to be strong Cruz supporters who've reacted viscerally to Trump and are looking for intellectual rationale to support Cruz over him.

    I wonder, though—if this will be a wake-up call of sorts, and if it is, if its timing will have been sufficiently early to have any impact on the Utah primary taking place today. Now it's no longer an abstract problem that they're hearing about vaguely in some other part of the country or the world. Now it's one of their own. That could have been one of their sons out there serving as a missionary and injured by Saracen terrorism.

    It always comes down to an emotional or visceral decision that is backed up by a subsequent intellectual rationale, not the other way around. And this is the kind of thing that can make emotional and visceral decisions change on a dime.

    The bannings have begun. Ace & Co. either don't recognize the hypocrisy of their actions, or they don't care. Either way, they've gone the way of the very SJWs they malign.

    San Bernadino.


    Yes, I had that in mind but those two muzzies were kind of lone wolfs it seems, plus it was not on the horrific scale that Paris or Belgium are. Paris and Belgium were coordinated, planned out, multiple muzzies and targets. San Bernadino was more jump the in car with guns and shoot up a party. Not much planning, spur of the moment. Almost like gamma school shooter vs a military operation. That's my real question, will the muzzies hold off on the 1000 pound fuel/air bomb?

    Ironic (and projection) when ace cites right wing SJW-ism as the reason behind the closing and banning.

    Pity. Makes me want to create an alternate site to preserve the AoS community, though it won't work without the AoS bloggers providing content posts to kick off discussion.

    My $0.02,

    Your average jihadist gives not a jot about cause-and-effect. Blowing up an airport or a metro = 72 virgins and paradise, and what happens on earth afterward is immaterial.

    And the one thing on earth that isn't immaterial, one's own kin, are unlikely to be the target of western retaliation. All's well.

    On the other hand, the fellows with big bags on money and intel and the clout to pull together large operations, do care about cause-and-effect. To a point. Kinda. As much as Muslims tend to do so.

    So. It's a question of what sort of attack can be pulled off. If an attack requires proper coordination between disparate groups, serious levels of funding and/or training, etc. etc... it will probably not happen if Clinton is in the lead. It is more likely to happen if Trump is winning, in the hopes that the people will be cowed like the Spanish were after Madrid.

    But, if all that's needed is a couple of angry Arab youths, a bit of explosives and a few guns... well, that could happen at anytime, and will be swayed by desire and opportunity and cat-and-mouse games with counter terrorism intelligence, not by the political situation.

    And once an attack has happened, big guys will want the credit.

    So who the hell knows. I would expect the head honchos to want to keep America docile through November, but plenty of people below them who give zero fucks about that. Plenty who will afterwards claim to be head honchos, or at least speak on their behalf... and plenty of head honchos willing to take credit for a fait accompli.

    Remember when the moonbat leftists in the UK started a petition to ban Trump from coming there?

    I imagine they will be in full battle-mode to ensure visiting Imams get the same treatment.

    Right?

    Blogger Gaiseric March 22, 2016 4:13 PM  

    @155: But the pinheads have consistently misunderstood things as well. I honestly don't think it occurs to them that an attack on America would galvanize Trump's standing in America. I think they honestly believe that they can intimidate Americans into voting for another milquetoast.

    Anonymous Alexander, #10 March 22, 2016 4:16 PM  

    @157 Gaiseric, agreed.

    If Trump was winning in the polls and they attacked to try and knock his support, ala Madrid, I think it would fail horribly. He'd surge and win with greater numbers than Reagan.

    But I think they'd still go for it, because like you said, they misunderstand. But if Clinton were winning, I think the head guys would try to let things lie quiet.

    Though their underlings would continue to do whatever they could get away with.

    Ace is on record as having been a liar for the establishment, and is a cuck of the first order on top of that. Go back during to the Charleston church shooting, telling everyone how black people are going to be angry at, even violent towards, white people for a while and to just let them and don't stand up for yourself, because you have to be understanding.

    I actually go for the non-Ace threads. However, I do peruse some of Ace's work when I'm there, and he's gotten worse over recent months. TDS has really taken hold of a lot of the so-called 'conservative' sites, From AOS to Jammie Wearing Fools to Powerline to Wizbang, and so on, but that's mostly just highlighted what was already going on there.

    Flashing back to when John Kerry said there was "legitimacy" to the Charlie Hebdo attacks. We deliberately need to view our slayers as reasonable men. That's a tall order under the current circumstances. But I'm sure our clever leaders will manage it.

    You don't really have to face bomb toting terrorists with glocks. When they first move into the neighborhood, give them a welcome while they're asleep by dousing their house with napalm and making a nice funeral pyre to the Great God Woden. It shows them the part of our European culture they don't see in the media. If the government asks, just say you don't know, and if they press make sure the junior G-men check the river bed in their car.

    If you are dealing with the "but not ALL Muslims are like that, you can't just be a bigot and treat them all like terrorists" conversation with someone that isn't a bad person (i.e., a neutral that you have a chance of winning as an ally), but you sort of have to deal with from time to time, what's the best "make them think without being confrontational" comeback?

    Something like "so can you give me a number of how many dead bodies are an acceptable toll before you decide to disallow any more, or do something with those that are here?" cuts to the core of it, but would likely be considered an attack. Similarly, "will you tell the family of a victim that their sacrifice was worth it to prove [something]" is much more personal than most people could tolerate. The sort of phrase you can say more in sadness than in anger or hatred while walking away would be best.

    Any pithy one-line comebacks that won't get a person into too much trouble with HR but still gets a person to see to the crux of it?

    Does it bother anyone else that politicians on both sides of the Atlantic talk of "bringing bombers to justice." It's as if they are treating this as a criminal justice issue, and not a warfare/clash of cultures issue.

    I don't remember from history class the speeches of FDR wanting to bring the Japanese bombers to justice. This is just as stupid as pretending the fight is against Islamic extremism, when in reality it is against Islam itself.

    Islam should be able to hide behind Christian religious tolerance. Their ideology is overtly political, and overtly all-consuming. It is just as much a threat as Communism was, and should be called out by name for what it is. I don't care how many people get their feelings hurt.

    Watch out for political capitulation. Contrary to popular opinion the prime recruitment tool for Jihadis is success and terrorism is to force political change. There's an unlimited supply of suicide bombers in training in Pakistan, Afghanistan and a number of Arab locations - and the Afghans are already sending guys into Europe.
