Belgium Police Neutralize Man Wearing “Bomb Vest” At Brussels Central Station…

Initial reports are sketchy, however it appears a suicide bomber has been neutralized by security forces in Brussels. There is at least one report the bomber’s suicide vest had some sort of malfunction.  An additional backpack carrying explosives is also thought to be present.

BRUSSELS — Belgian media report that explosion-like noises have been heard at a Brussels train station. A main square has been evacuated.

Belgian police report that an incident occurred at Brussels Central Station prompting an evacuation, the Reuters news agency reports.

Media in Belgium say police “neutralized” a person wearing an explosive belt, according to Reuters. Officials said that the station is under control.

The Associated Press is reporting that broadcaster RTL quoted Fires Services spokesman Pierre Meys confirming that some kind of an explosion had happened in the city’s Central station on Tuesday. Meys could not say what had caused the blast, but that firefighters were at the scene.

Grand Place, a major tourist site, was evacuated along with the station about 656 feet away, AP reports.  (link)

    It is beyond sad that this is becoming so commonplace in Europe yet with each event the people seem to become more complacent about it. I can’t wrap my mind around any sound reason why the citizens in Europe are not more active about their government’s failure to provide security for it’s citizens, both by their lack of outrage and misguided votes. All of the open border rhetoric that is destroying western civilization has a money trail. Find it then destroy it. This would have been us under Hillary in a few years so we must ensure that rational sovereignty-minded people continue to run our country.

        Exactly.

        Imagining that one is morally superior by being uber-tolerant and championing all minorities in the leftist identity-victimhood-grievance hierarchy (where the only demographic excluded is the white male) must simply be the strongest opiate there is, even stronger than the ones killing people in the U.S.

        There appears to be no countermeasure to it, short of conservatives reaching numerical superiority and taking over institutions and suppressing leftist dogma.

        Chances of that fall in the YMMV-to-nil range, in my opinion.

      Just visited Nebraska University in Lincoln. They are currently doing orientation and tours for incoming freshman. Judging by the mannerisms, fashion and overall persona depicted by the males coming out of High School we have a real problem coming down the pipeline. The feminization of this generation is unreal.

      Euro men are ahead of that curve.

        Leftists have taken every possible and plausible social “adjustment” that would protect the rights of legitimate minorities in this country, and cleverly interwoven those changes or social theories with loads of really dubious stuff, like multiple genders and so on. Now you take all of that from the colleges and Leftie think-tanks, and sell it to Soros and other funders of radicals and CNN etc., and that’s what we have. And CNN and other tabloid/propaganda mills are claiming free speech, which makes it difficult to counter them. Imagine what it will be like in ten years, when CNN and Wikipedia and Snopes, and even the most respected MSM like the NY times, Popular Mechanics, Scientific American, JAMA and others are fully politicized to embrace that nonsense. That could bring about the collapse of the republic, short of a radical intervention.

          Also, a lot of France abstained. I’m not sure why people are so disgusted with anything nationalistic. (Le Pen seems together and nice compared to Trump’s personality/persona which I could see rubbing some the wrong way.) But there it is.

    Well, if you look to the right, you’ll see my foot by the wall, after the explosion

    What about souvenirs?

    Oh yeah, well, I’m having my leg, the one that was blown off, stuffed & sent back. It might look good on the mantel. I’m thinking about having “Diversity Is Our Strength” tattooed on it in big letters

    The Daily Mail article wrote “panicked people” under photos, but in a couple of those were some smiling women. In the videos no one was running or pushing, just strolling along.

    It appears as if the new big thing is to pretend nonchalence in terror attacks.

    But maybe the two women were smiling because the terrorist was annihilated so quickly.

      Disconcerting to say the least IMHO that our ‘best defense’ is to hope other future would be terrorists are just as inept.

    So they took the snake home and now it bites. They voted for this to be a real possibility. At what point is it not news any more? At what point do the reporters and news media transition to this being a normal occurrence that is typical of life in a big European city? If it is a “normal” occurrence is it news? Sorry for the innocent lives lost due to voter’s insistence on naiveté and refusal to face reality. Tragic on so many levels but getting close to not being “news” any more when occurs in Europe. Happening almost as much there as in 3rd world ME and African countries.

    Brussels, Belgium. The HQ of the EU and the HQ of NATO.

    Now, they are telling us, quite seriously, that NATO will become (some say already is great with Intel) a force to be used to stop radical Islamic terror.

    It’s attacked the capital city, virtually down the street from their HQ.

    It think that anyone who expects NATO to be useful need only look at the facts.

    They have not won one war against Islamic terror anywhere: Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria.
    That is their speciality, big wars. They lose them all.
    Now we are supposed to believe this gigantic military organization will deftly become a resource to use in suppressing urban guerrilla terrorism. Ludicrous notion.

    Brussels has succumbed to the wobbly notion that you can invite in and cultivate your enemy and he won’t slay you and destroy your home. It would have been a world first in human history. But, alas, it’s delusion. Now, they are tricking themselves again with this utterly silly idea that NATO will have the answer.

    As all these countries should try to remember, you shall reap as you sow. They allowed so many aliens into their countries and now they are reaping almost every day a terrorist attack of one kind or another whether in groups or singly. Hard to feel sorry for them, and we need to remove ALL muslims from our soil asap and definitely Trump to go ahead with the ban, which I think should be for at least 6 months and not just several days.
