As I said in another topic:
This would be the second (attempted) terrorist attack in a relatively short time in Belgium if I'm not mistaken and a very quick one after the
horrendous attacks in France. We must not forget that other attacks have been prevented recently as well and also that several cities were threatened
and mentioned by IS. Currently things appear to be escalating rapidly and I somewhat expect the situation to quiet down a bit just like similar ones
before... but easing pressure doesn't necessarily mean that no further seeds of resentment, fear and disgust have been planted.
The last thing we need is a terrorist attack (in Europe) this quickly after what happened in Paris but I suppose these attackers figured exactly the
same and just wanted to add fuel to the fire. Disheartening to see how certain groups and individuals actively try to steer and manipulate the
situation into civil war. How long will they need to poke?
This just doesn't feel right at all. 2015 is starting really, really badly in too many ways to discuss and mention here right now. What can we do if
there're groups who actively try to escalate an already tense situation and add more fuel to an already dangerously smothering fire?
I feel as if something urgently needs to be done or changed, it just cannot continue like this. Politicians play an important role in all this if you
ask me by constantly downplaying the severity of the issues and constantly urging the worried population to just look the other way and move along. On
the other hand, while noting the sense of urgency and worry within myself and others I simply fail at this point to come up with a short term,
realistic solution, especially given the fact that that'd require loss of face for many big egos and a concerted effort and actual corporation, from
both politicians and their parties as well as society in general.
I hope I don't have to watch something ugly unfold.
