    I have been watching video of this on the news since about 3:30am my time. And where is our President? At a baseball game in Cuba with one of the worse human rights abusers out there. None of this should be happening, we have had every opportunity to form an incredible alliance with other leaders who want to stop this sort of thing. When the leader of Egypt or was it Jordon? had a member of their military murdered, they crawled into a fighter jet and personally dropped bombs. Seems Obama would rather go golfing.

    The voters of this country better get it right this November. There, I said it.

    It's best to keep politics and other peoples tragedy separate, just saying.

    My thoughts are with the victims, their family's, and all the people in Brussles

    My friend arrived at the airport with her boyfriend just before these * attacked. About to go to Spain on a holiday. luckily they were able to run outside when the bombs went off and got out unharmed. She let every know they were safe through Facebook and the special "I am safe" network thingie.

    These people... What a bunch of disturbed *. Really messed up again. Seen the footage ( saw it right after it happened this morning) and it's just * horrible.


    IckabodSchrek: don't go using something tragic like this to be spreading your political views in a while different country. On a mobile forum nonetheless. Have some respect, man.

    This is so messed up, this is not faith...
    31 dead and over 200 injured... Lucky my friends and family in the area of Brussels are okay...
    I heard the news just after i dropped of the kids at nursery and school. I cried on my way to work.
    paris was close, just four hours away, brussels... not even two hours away... Its just crazy.
    And that attacker they arrested... Is in jail 5 min from our house...

    But we keep our head up, these fools while not bring us down. Belgium, we speak dutch, french and german and we still get along with each other, we dont hate we respect and love!

    @Osg00d: I'm so glad you and your family are ok. I cry everytime I see this happening on TV, then I get angry. I didn't get the 'happy' call from friends when this happened at the World Trade Center. Hug your family tonight.

    As long as people try to make a situation about the entire religion and not a few with extreme views, more and more people join these type of groups. The President is in Cuba to reach out and connect with another country and to possibly bring democracy and help to bring an end to their human rights issues. If you bothered to listen to his speech he praised the protesters in their country for demanding the same rights as we supposedly have in this country. He spoke of freedoms and unity, instead of continuing to have a hostile neighbor.

    As long as we continue to take the stance that it's us against them, and not try to foster unity amongst all, the terrorist win. As long as we continue to send the message that we pick and choose who is allowed in this country, not because of what they've done, but because of who they are, the terrorist win. When mass immigrant first came to America, they brought violence with them, We still have Mobs and gangs, that are responsible for Murders, Human and Drug trafficking, Violence, etc... from all the countries that relocate here. Should we have closed our borders, in the late 1800s and Early 1900s. What would this country look like...

    I can remember other non Muslim Countires that used bombings and terrorism to further their cause, but no ever said let's not let theses people in, SMH!

    I do hope the Voters get it right this November, and vote with intelligence over fear. Send a message to the rest of the world we practice what we preach. Freedom, equality and pride.

    My prays go out to all the victims of terrorist, both foreign and domestic.

    How many mothers have to lose their children to fight somebody else's war.

    Just read now that suspect has been caught.

    Edit. Just as am writing this now 11:33 am uk time. It's now being said he might not have been caught according the the news agency that released the article in the first instance. According to sky News.

    Tnx... We will be okay, my heart cries for those who lost their family member or who are waiting at a hospital for those who are seruisly injured...
    My two boys (4 and 2) arent aware of anything and we keep strong for them.


    Further no suspects are caught, yet!
    Police and troups are on the case.
    In all this misery we are also lucky... They rushed their plans after Salah what his name was caught. They thought he may tell the plans... Probably they wanted to strike this saterday ( start of the easter holiday and their would be many more victims then). They went to the airport in a cab, and they where mad cus they 'd asked for a big cab, so they where forced to leave 2 bags behind. After the attack the cabdriver put 2 and 2 together and let the cops know where he picked them up.. They found the bags, one was a chemical bomb the other a homemade cluster bomb ... So not only because of rushing it, they couldnt do that much damage as they wished, they also left so many trails and evidence, so this could mean good things ... Or so i tell myself to keep hope. To bad so many people have to suffer for e few douchbags who think that their god approves this...
