Belgium under attack, two explosions kill 34 people at the airport and Metro in the capital of Brussels, where is the next attack, a Dutch hospital, Italian University, German school, the killings and bombings are just ‘adverts’ for the cause, I suspect the main goal is civil war in Europe and a second front of armed conflict
Yesterday, terrorists stuck in Brussels, people are innocent are dead, some are injured and the world is in shock.
The EU leaders have expressed sympathy, they have expressed outrage and we have had the holding up of signs, cartoons drawn and a frenzy on twitter of the #je suis variety.
Bombs don’t care who they kill or shred when they go off, and it appears neither do Islamic terrorists. At present, we are being told that across Europe that security measures are being tightened, rather like circling the wagons round various places such as airports and other transport hubs.
The ISIS attacks is said to have killed 34 people so far, the airport bombings at Brussels left terrified passengers covered in blood ran for their lives after explosion sent 'shockwaves' through terminal building.
Prior to the explosions, the attackers were alleged to be shouting in Arabic and in a firefight before they detonated their bombs. In the other attack in the Metro, 20 innocent people lost their lives, along with the 14 at the airport.
It seems that the ISIS plan is to set Europe a blaze, we have had Paris, we have now had Brussels, we will be having attacks right across Europe, it isn’t a surprise that outrages like this happen but the question is where will the next big attack happen.
Will it be a Dutch hospital?
A German school?
An Italian University?
A French nuclear power plant?
Terrorism is a bit like a virus, it jumps and evolves, and it is also calculated, forget the news of terrorists shouting ‘allah akbar’ before they shoot or bomb people, rather think about why they picked the target that they did.
Some time ago, while writing about the migrant crisis, I said that troops were needed to be used as part of the security measures, where are the troops?
There are European leaders who recognise the extent of our problem, but there are others who think it seems that a terrorist event is just another crime that has happened, and that there is no real need for action.
They seem to think that they can ‘manage’ the problem, ‘manage’ the expectations of the public post event.
We have seen the rise of the far right in places like Germany and Poland, but this will spread, and there will be a huge backlash to minorities that seems innocent people will be targeted.
Europe is spiralling downwards, one of the things which must happen is the removal of Angela Merkel as German Chancellor, Merkel has failed to provide strong leadership and she is a danger to national security, not just of Germans but people in other countries.
Here are some of the measures that I proposed before some of them ended up on the political agenda:
1/ EU Border Force
2/ EU internal immigration policy for EU citizens
3/ intervention and mobilisation of the military in member states
4/ New EU wide ID card scheme
5/ No non EU economic migrant processed from this crisis and allowed to remain within an EU country which has accept them can travel to any other EU member state. Everyone should be completely documented, if a breach occurred; the person or group will be returned to the EU country they were settled and registered in.
I also stated that it was a matter of national security that there needed to be detention camps built, because this is a matter of national security which so far has been ignored by politicians seeking to enhance their profile of being 'caring'.
The act of letting migrants into the communities of Europe under the guise of humanitarianism was one of the biggest mistakes ever committed within the European Union. Detention camps should have been setup to vet people.
And I am not talking about a wire fence surrounding a ‘tent city’.
The Med needs to be policed, this should be done by the EU border force but given the slowness of getting ideas off the ground, NATO members should be used to carry out that task until things get organised.
To get back to Brussels, Alphonse Youla, who was working on a stand putting security wrapping around suitcases, said:
'I heard a man shout some Arabic words then an explosion.. then a second explosion, a massive explosion, much bigger. It was a horror. I saw at least seven people dead. There was blood. People had lost legs. You could see their bodies but no legs.'
Europe is waiting for the next attack; I would suspect that ISIS wants a civil war in Europe, an entirely new second front, the only way to stop or reduce this is by putting in measures such as I have outlined, of course other measures will be needed.
A “secret” police dossier also revealed there could be up to 90 'kamikazes' waiting to launch suicide bomb attacks in Europe after returning from Syria disguised as migrants. I personally think the goal is a civil war, to do this there needs to be an expansion and setting up of a Islamic terrorist network in Europe.
The killings and bombings are just ‘adverts’ for the cause.
When will European leaders do what is necessary to protect citizens?
Only when they start to fear for their own political future!
