    An explosion at a train station in Brussels, Belgium, today, that prompted the station to be evacuated but left no victims injured, is considered a terrorist attack, according to the Belgian federal prosecutor's office.

    One suspect was shot by the military after the explosion at Brussels Central Station, a senior Belgian law enforcement official told ABC News. A spokesman for the Belgian federal police said the suspected attacker is dead.

    According to CNN, one witness heard the terrorist yell Allahu Akbar. Thankfully nobody but the terrorist has been injured.

    Another lone wolf attack, some would say. I think there's no such thing as lone wolves where terrorism is involved. Each and every one of them has been radicalized one way or another by extremists who know what they're doing.

    The above paragraph is not about Muslims - or not only about Muslims - if anyone wondered.

    That's usually a reliable indicator of it being a terrorist attack. But then they seem to say if for everything else too; I was watching tv news footage of a supposed IS training camp and they yelled it out every time they cleared the gym horse. If they didn't clear it they yelled out 'Oh **** it!' :mrgreen:

    So how do you explain all the white people in the actual pictures of Brussels immediately after the attack in the article?

    Note that I’m not questioning that this was another Islamic attack in anyway but it’s worth nothing that there are always “witnesses” quoted as telling journalists this kind of thing regardless of whether it actually happened or not. That kind of reporting is not at all a reliable source of the details of events, something that applies to reporting of any similar significant incident.

    Turns out that the terrorist did shout Allahu akbar.

    A Moroccan national who attempted an attack on Brussels' Central Station is suspected of supporting Islamic State militants, prosecutors said on Wednesday, a day after the man tried to detonate a suitcase bomb packed with nails and gas bottles.

    In an abortive attack that Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel said could have been far worse, the man likely made the bomb at his home in the Brussels borough of Molenbeek, a known hotbed of radicalized Muslims, investigators said.

    ...

    He then ran back up to the concourse where commuters had been milling around and rushed toward a soldier shouting "Allahu akbar" - God is greatest, in Arabic. The soldier, part of a routine patrol, shot him several times. Bomb disposal experts checked the body and found he was not carrying more explosives.

    Imagine a situation. Absolutely drunk person tries to jump out a window. All people around cry: do not do it! You'll break you legs! But the drunk person says: shut your mouth. When the drunk person falls down from the window, he starts to cry: see, I've broken my legs!

    What could I say to white people from Brussels, that lit a hotbed of terrorism at their home? Only one thing: sober up!

    You said that all the white people had left Brussels so there were only "Muslim terrorists" left. I was just pointing out what a ridiculous lie that was.

    I could say more :) It isn't possible to drink a beer in Brussels. Maybe in the centre you could. Why? Because muslims don't drink alcohol... But muslim cuisine is very testy there. I strongly recommend it :)
    Are you from?

    Just another loony 'lone wolf' I expect. Amazing how much panic and chaos one wacko can make isn't it? Guess we're just gonna have to get used to this kind of crap from now on because it will happen almost daily. Even non-Islamist wackos will start getting in on the act when they've 'had a few'? and the emergency services will be dashing about all over the place 24/7.

    Trying to distract from your first lie with another isn’t a very good tactic, especially when you had to immediately put a condition on it because you realised how obviously false it was. :cool:

    No, though I’ve visited (and drunk beer in :) ) Anderlecht a couple of years ago.

    Guy, never say to a real Siberian native, that he lies. Your neck is too thin and breaks easily for such talking. Bye!
