Tragedy in Brussels

Last Update: March 22, 2016

:(

My deepest thoughts and prayers go out to the people and families of today’s tragedy in Brussels. In the word of a song "When will we ever learn"?

Sorrow, How do we define it, and how do we measure it?

William :(

Don't look now but they are already here and the current extreme climate is doing nothing to prevent an inevitable horrific out come, I fear.

Hi Brady, many of us are not Americans. That does not detract from the sorrow and hopelessness we feel at these tragic events.

As a veteran I know that politicians only hinder the fight against terrorism , they will not resolve the problem because there are too many vested interests.

If airports were only for the travelling public the number of people inside the terminals would be vastly reduced. This would not solve the problem but it would make surveillance and identification easier. We need practical measures not political posturing.

Sad, when you look at the terror those victims experienced, one can not really understand why these things are happening. Our prayers are with those victims, thier families, all affected and of course The Belgian People.

It's so terrible what happened in Belgium, my heart goes out to all of those who are hurt in any way.

The breeding ground for recruits for these terrorist organizations emerged in the slums.
I am firmly convinced when the riches on earth would be better distributed, these fanatics will not gain any recruit.

This might get me into trouble but it's Not True. It's not riches they want. They want "Martyrdom" The want the rewards that they think await them on the other side in their heaven. It's actually very sad.

Trouble or not, the reality is that the riches of my world are evenly distributed by my faith in the gift of free will! Evil and good are two sides of the same coin. At one time in out human history there was a sense of stewardship for "the strong to help the weak, the wealthy to help the poor and the fortunate to help the less fortunate"!
We have lost our way and may have no choice except to defend our beliefs by decentralization in lieu of the dysfunctional and bureaucratic centralization that takes on a reality of its own!
Just saying :(

Yes, I know, but they recruit amongst the wretches and beggars in the society and promise them heaven

so very true, and it comes down to the interpretation / indoctrination by those who are serving their own ends and not a solution that will stand. A poor foundation will not support the weight of their goals. Again, its so very sad that we must cycle through the extreme before water can seek its own level. I wish we were as civilized as we think we are.

How very Truely spoken! Just take a look at their holy book and look up on line the 3 Steps to their Victory.

When will we ever learn? Probably never. Muslim extremists have only one agenda, to terrorize people into their belief system. I probably shouldn't say that here but it's the truth.

My heart goes out to all those in Brussels as well and others in Europe who have to deal with this. The people and injured were just people going about their daily business, they weren't bothering anyone and they, for sure, didn't deserve this.

Ya know? I have a great philosophy where terrorists are concerned. It's a bit controversial, but it would work well for me and mine.
When it comes to confirmed terrorists, kill them all and let God sort them out upstairs.
If ever there was a POSSIBLE reason for nuclear force, they are it. The only thing I fear is that, with the genie out of the lamp, less scrupulous governments and entities would use them nilly-willy to 'solve' their problems. Thus we are stuck having to fight them toe-to-toe for our lives and those of our loved ones.
ISIS is as real a threat to world peace as is North Korea, maybe more so. That's why I feel as I do about them. I've had friends and others say "What about the innocent women and children with them." If they are with them, they have been indoctrinated into the morass that is ISIS and are just a able as a grown man to attack and kill others. It's been shown time and again.
No, I truly think a cancer like that has to be excised from our world body.

Great argument for carrying a Legally Concealed Weapon at all times; some of those Bastar** wouldn't make it out safely.
One of the Main reasons that the Japs did not attack main land America in W.W. 2 was they thought all Americans were armed and that Scared the Hell of them!!!
