All is quiet again, nothing seriously dangerous going on here in The Hague. I've been very close to the Parliament buildings this afternoon, and the
The Hague central station, but didn't notice anything at all. I heard about this, only half an hour ago, when I got back home.
Most of the guys they arrested today, have been arrested before, and a brother of one of these guys is actually still in jail on terrorism charges.
These guys are teenagers, or in their mid-twenties, not radical 9/11 type of terrorists. IMHO they're highly exagerrating the current threat, there
is no way these guys have the know-how to produce large explosives. The murder on Theo van Gogh was simple, he was shot and stabbed. That's pretty
much all these kids can do.
It's a good this the homeland security agency is keeping an eye on them, though. After they released Samir Azzouz back in April, they publicly stated
they would deffinately keep an eye on him, so that's what they've been doing. Samir was dumb enough to continue to talk about terrorist acts and
trying to get explosives and weapons, that's how smart he is.
