    These problems are going to continue until countries decide to reject political correctness and deal with the problems associated with Muslim immigration. In the US, this will help Trump who is the one who has spoken most bluntly.

    Others like Hillary have called this the talk of fear and hate speech and said this is not who we are. Who do she and her followers think we really are, patsies who like to get our asses shot and bombed?

    Bernie Sanders Puts Cruz And Trump To Shame With Response To Brussels Attack


    "Bernie Sanders responded to the Brussels attacks by saying:

    We offer our deepest condolences to the families who lost loved ones in this barbaric attack and to the people of Brussels who were the target of another cowardly attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. We stand with our European allies to offer any necessary assistance in these difficult times.

    Today’s attack is a brutal reminder that the international community must come together to destroy ISIS. This type of barbarism cannot be allowed to continue."

    Compare what Sanders said with the bigoted pandering of Ted Cruz, “For years, the west has tried to deny this enemy exists out of a combination of political correctness and fear. We can no longer afford either. Our European allies are now seeing what comes of a toxic mix of migrants who have been infiltrated by terrorists and isolated, radical Muslim neighborhoods. We will do what we can to help them fight this scourge, and redouble our efforts to make sure it does not happen here. We need to immediately halt the flow of refugees from countries with a significant al Qaida or ISIS presence. We need to empower law enforcement to patrol and secure Muslim neighborhoods before they become radicalized. We need to secure the southern border to prevent terrorist infiltration. And we need to execute a coherent campaign to utterly destroy ISIS. The days of the United States voluntarily surrendering to the enemy to show how progressive and enlightened we can be are at an end. Our country is at stake.”

    Meanwhile, Donald Trump wants to close the Southern border and tell everyone to hide under their beds, “We have to be very careful in the United States. We have to be very very vigilant about who we allow into this country. Trump later added, “I would close up our borders to people until we figure out what is going on.”

    There is no comparison between the racism and bigotry of Cruz and Trump and the statement of Sen. Sanders. Bernie Sanders is prepared to lead an international coalition to destroy ISIS. Trump and Cruz are only looking to spread hate of immigrants and Muslims. Sanders demonstrated the integrity and strength that is completely missing in the top two Republican candidates for president.

    While Cruz and Trump sounded like cowardly bigots, Bernie Sanders showed the values of a president.

    So this is what happens when you "capture the man" who's responsible for the false flag operation in Paris... You get another false flag. You scare the west and bomb Syrian civilians some more. ISIS gets stronger, immigration laws get stricter... How exactly is ISIS handling all the Russian attacks anyway? It's as though they want Beligian to attack them too. The French, The British, The Turks, The US. Everyone should just bomb Syria is the message I'm getting from ISIS.

    Regarding the timing of this Brussels attack, I don't think it was in retaliation for the arrest of several ISIS members, including an alleged planner of the Paris attacks. Belgian police said they believed they had captured them just as something big was being planned.

    And indeed, not only were these Brussels attacks big, but apparently well planned and coordinated. Something like them is not thrown together, approved and executed in a couple of days. More likely these were already in the planning stages when those arrests occured.

    At most the remaining ISIS operatives, fearing their own arrests as police gathered evidence from those they had just captured, may have moved up their attack schedule, while they still could act. But I believe the clock was already ticking on this latest terror operation.

    Sanders was merely saying the same formulaic mumbo-jumbo that half the politicians in Congress are spouting right now. It only sounds good when compared to dangerous nutjobs like Cruz and Trump.

    "Belgian brothers Khalid and Ibrahim Bakraoui"

    "Laachraoui, 25, has been openly sought by the police since Monday and it is believed he may have built the bombs for both the Brussels attacks and the Paris carnage in November.

    CBS News correspondent Charlie D'Agata reported that, according to Belgian authorities, Laachraoui's DNA was found on the explosives used in the gun and suicide attacks in Paris, which left 130 people dead. He was already Europe's most-wanted man when he walked into Brussels Airport on Tuesday morning.

    The Belgian federal prosecutor's office said Wednesday that a laptop found during a Tuesday raid of the Schaerbeek area of Brussels contained an apparent last will for Ibrahim Bakraoui, one of the airport bombers. The note apparently mentioned Bakraoui feeling increasingly paranoid and worried about ending up in prison."

    "ISIS claimed responsibility for the coordinated attacks, but authorities said it's too soon to say for sure whether the terror group was behind the blasts."

    "Belgian authorities on Wednesday stepped up the manhunt for a key suspect in the worst terror attacks in the country’s history, as news emerged that they had previously been warned about another suspect by the Turkish government."

    19th-century Belgian law allowed bombing suspects to go free

    "The brothers would still be serving their sentences were it not for the law Lejeune, named for Belgian justice minister Jules Le Jeune, who introduced it in 1888. The law allows inmates to be released from prison after they served a third of their sentence."
