    Latest tally is 26 dead, and many more expected. Awful.

    Alleged retaliation for the arrest of the last suspect in the Paris attacks.

    Sickening and never-ending. Not much you can do to avert suicide bombers who are committed.

    I know YF is busy but there has to be a tweet or three he can dig up blaming Trump.

    Did they HAVE to arrest the Paris mastermind?

    No, they didn't. They could have killed him and all of his extended family, which is what Trump would do.

    Brussels is almost the perfect target for this kind of atrocity. It has symbolic value as the functional capital of the EU. But the EU has no cops. Brussels is also a big city in a small country with a correspondingly small security service and a very weak central government as a result of its own internal political divide between French and Flemish speakers.

    Odd-looking Brussels sprouts.
