Explosions at Brussels Airport and Metro Stations, Kill 34, Injure 170 More | Main | Trump on Muslim Immigration: "I Didn't Say 'Shut It Down.' I said you have to be very careful."

When Does Belgium Decide It's Had Enough?

And, for that matter: When does the rest of Europe decide it's had enough of Belgium?

Belgium is patient zero for jihadism in Europe, thanks to lax, jihadist-coddling attitudes.

Imposing strict border controls on Belgium, and Belgium only, might serve to change Belgium's laissez-faire attitude towards terrorism right quick.


Update: Obama speaks about the latest butchery from his Islamist cousins in his usual mode -- passionless. perfunctory, and flippant.

Of course he mentions, as Cruz did, the need to not think any bad thoughts about anyone else's faith.

A minute later, he's all smiles again and he fetes Raoul Castro.

And there are reports that this attack was planned for another city -- but only recently shifted to Belgium in response to the capture of Salem Abdeslam.

That last bit is unnerving, if true: A very lethal coordinated attack can be thrown together in a matter of days? I guess I shouldn't be that surprised; this isn't very sophisticated stuff. Brutal, not clever or well-conceived.

Update: A third bomb discovered at the airport has been destroyed by a bomb team.
