    As it has turned out to be no accident, the threat was moved to the off topic section. Please respect the forum rules when discussing the topic.

    Actually for what it's worth I'm fine with it remaining here. While it may not specifically relate to "aviation safety" it's certainly related to aviation and to safety.
    But then how about the off-topic forum? Once again: I don't want to be callous or non-chalant about what happened at Brussels, but in my opinion it has nothing to do with "aviation safety". No more so than pickpocketing or bagsnatching at an airport...

    Or maybe to some other forum intended to foster intelligent discourse, rather than being a place for teenage girls to show the world what they did with their hair today?

    I agree with Brian on Political/religious discussions. However I believe safety discussions belong in this forum. I often spend more time in a terminal than on an aircraft; so for me terminal safety is important.

    Is a terrorist attack really a topic for an Aviation Safety Forum? I don't want to sound callous, but I think Brian is right. This thread should be moved to Facebook.

    it's gonna be interesting to see how these devices made it past security points into the departure area

    From the photos/video I've see it looked like the bombs exploded ahead of security in the check-I/ticketing area.

    and not to make this any more political than it already is, if you are going to equate collateral deaths of "innocent" bystanders with the intentional murder of as many people as a terrorist can kill with a suicide bomb or other device/method, there is nothing to discuss.

    maybe trump's planned ban ain't such a bad idea after all.
    Only one?

    I was saying that all followers of a particular religion are not to blame, just a section of it. Put bluntly ....

    Not all Muslims are terrorists .......... but most terrorists are Muslim. I didn't want anyone falling into the trap of turning posts here into a politico-religious argument forum. Farcebook and Twatter are the places for that.

    Be observant in your life and travels. Report all oddities and suspicions to the police. Do not be drawn into accusing any particular nationality or religious group, not everybody is bad.

    RIP to those lost today.
