This is what happens, when you do not take Terrorism and Immigration; and the connection between the two, seriously.
Via the Daily Mail:
Cowering under desks and running for their lives, this is the terrifying moment passengers were caught up in a suicide bomb attack at Brussels Airport today in a series of blasts that have killed at least 34 people and injured 170 across the city.
Witnesses described apocalyptic scenes with blood and ‘dismembered bodies everywhere’ after two blasts rocked the terminal at around 8am (7am GMT), killing at least 14 people and injuring dozens of others.
Then 79 minutes later at 9.19am, at least 20 people were killed and scores injured, some critically, when a blast hit a Metro station just 400 metres from the EU headquarters in the city centre.
There were also reports the Tihange nuclear power plant, around 90km from the capital, is being evacuated of all non-essential staff as Belgium raised security to its maximum level.
At the airport, there were reports of a firefight between police and the attackers who shouted in Arabic moments before detonating their bombs.
An unexploded suicide vest was later found in the rubble and a Kalashnikov rifle beside the body of a dead terrorist.
This afternoon, Russian media claimed Muslim convert brothers Ivan and Alexey Dovbashi from Belarus and compatriot Marat Yunusov may have been behind the attacks. The trio are said to have fought for ISIS in Syria.
The blasts, which detonated near a Starbucks and several check-in desks, sent shockwaves through the terminal building, shattering windows and knocking roof tiles off the ceiling as terrified passengers ran for their lives.
The explosions, coming just four months after the Paris attacks, have left countries around the world reeling, with security services placed on high alert, flights cancelled, Eurostar services suspended and France’s border with Belgium shut down.
Two suspects were arrested a mile from the Maelbeek metro station at around 11am as hundreds of troops and police flooded the streets of Brussels in the hunt for members of the terror cell.
Soldiers have been also been deployed at the airport and other key locations across the capital.
The bombings come just a day after the Belgium Interior Minister warned of possible revenge attacks after the arrest of Paris massacre suspect Salah Abdeslam in the city on Friday.

Where it happened:
Maybe now Europe will take terrorism seriously. Donald Trump had better start boning up on this; because he will be asked about it. As much as I disagree with her, on many, many issues; namely who she is supporting for President —- Michelle Malkin did have a point in this book here:
It is time that the United States got real about these people. It is time that we clamped down on Immigration; legal or otherwise, and start tracking who comes here and where they come from and if they come from areas prone to terrorism, they should be tracked, and their every last move should be documented. Because terrorism is not a political pawn for the Republicans; just ask those killed in San Bernardino, California.
I hear alot of this, “Sending Prayers” to address this situation. The thought is nice and all; but we need more than just prayers — we need action, Military action. We need Military action, with a plan to win the fight and get in there, kill these people and get out. This is not a Neoconservative position. This is a position of someone who wants to see our Republic defended and protected. I dare say that anyone, and I mean anyone; left, right, or whatever politically — that says that we ought to just stand aside and do nothing — they are the ones who are anti-American and pro-terrorism. There is a fine line between Wilsonian Military occupation and defending the Republic from terrorist attacks. I know the difference.
This whole idea of blaming America for terrorism is idiotic at best. America has made mistakes; that is true; Iraq is proof of that. But, does that justify this sort of terrorism? No, it does not. This is why I disagree with the Paleoconservatives on this issue. Because they want to blame America for terrorism! If they are not doing that; they are spouting moronic conspiracy theories on just about everything. Terrorism is not a illusion; it is real and it will be coming here, if that United States does not get a clue about Islam, and start making plans on how to thwart those who are radicalized, before more people are killed here.
Again, this isn’t about neoconservative Wilsonian foreign policy; this is about protecting the Republic. Because terrorism is no joke and if the right; all of it’s various factions, does not get a clue about this — things are going to get worse, much worse.
