Brussels Terror Attacks, Death of the European Union, BrExit Wake up Call

Politics / European Union Mar 24, 2016 - 03:38 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

The Syrian civil war is coming home to roost to a fatally flawed European Union for the fundamental fact every EU nations borders begin with the borderline third world state of Greece, which along with the rest of eastern europe should never have been allowed to join the European Union as this weeks Brussels terror attacks just represent the tip of the ice-berg of full spectrum instability that is the European Union.


The Brussels and before it Paris terror attacks were inevitable for the following reasons -

Firstly the implosion and destruction of of Syria that has resulted in the death of over 450,000 people, leaving most of the nation ripe for the likes of ISIS / Islamic State to fill the void with their apocalyptic end times ideology that I covered recently in this video -

https://youtu.be/ZkjhBrY9X6U

Secondly, Europe has sent over 10,000 (mostly muslim) of its alienated youth to Syria to be trained by ISIS, Kurdish and other Jihadi groups to kill and be killed and for approx 1/3rd to return to Europe fully trained and brainwashed to wreck havoc on their home nations by both fulfilling their personal thirst for martyrdom and by training others to follow their example as the Brussels terror attacks clearly demonstrate.

Thirdly, a flawed European Union that in its socialist elitist zeal has like the Roman Empire expanded far beyond that which it is able to sustain, incorporating a whole host of basket case nations from across the whole of eastern and southern europe, the likes of the 3 baltic states, Poland, Czech, Slovakia, Romania and Bulgaria amongst others who have dumped over 20 million economic migrants and many thousands of criminals into western european populations, destabilising communities through pressures on scarce resources such as housing, jobs and services such as education and health.

A flawed european union who's borders begin and end with the likes of third world Greece, Slovenia, Hungary, and Bulgaria where once entry is achieved then the road to anywhere in Europe is virtually assured, only the English channel acts as an effective natural barrier though of course offers no defence against European passport holders.

Fourthly, a European Union that on the one hand has member states that rampage across North Africa killing many thousands of innocents encouraging revenge (France), and then on the other hand play innocent due to not realising that they too are party to such carnage (Belgium) due to the fact they are members of the same Union that reaps blowback.

The Solutions

For Britain

One of the primary reasons from the REMAIN camp has been that of the importance of collective security of remaining within the European Union which the Brussels attack now literally blows apart for the fundamental reason that security is only as strong as the weakest link and where Brussels in concerned it is increasingly become apparent that security was at best incompetent by letting terror cells to run around right under their very noses. And then we have the issue of the free movement of european union passport holders, and worse for the Schengen area that the Paris terror attacks so clearly demonstrated. Therefore the EU rather than offering security is a gaping hole in the security fence that Britain can only close by EXITING the European Union.

My consistent view for some time has been that Britain should EXIT the structurally flawed European Union for a whole host of economic, political, social and security reasons BEFORE IT IMPLODES ! As I warned of the consequences for Britain of a REMAIN Vote on June 23rd in the following videos -

 

For Europe

To reintroduce internal borders ASAP because the likes of Greece are incapable of managing their borders without many tens of thousands of german troops on the ground. And then to rethink what the European Union is and should be, which unfortunately given their socialist ideology will never do and so the destiny for the European Union is to die a slow painful violent death.

To Fight Terrorism

Unfortunately the damage has already been done, there are now at least 3,000 fully trained battle hardened ISIS and other terrorists in Europe right now and as we have seen with the Brussels carnage that it takes less than a handful to bring whole capital cities to a standstill. Therefore the prospects for Europe are bleak as probably every European capital city has a Molenbeek. So it is going to prove a very costly exercise for European nations of differing capabilities to irradiate home grown Syria trained terror cells, therefore Europe faces a perfect storm of thousands of returned Jihadists instigating terror attacks for some time to come.

For Syria

As my first video illustrates that Syria is a bloody mess, so there is no easy fix but a starting point would be for an ALL OUT WAR on ISIS so as to degrade their ability to train new terrorists. For as long as ISIS exists then so will the conveyor belt of Jihadists seeking martyrdom will continue. Following which the next phase would be to quickly fill the void left by ISIS else something similar to ISIS would soon replace it.

For Muslims

As I covered following the Paris attacks (18 Nov 2015 - Paris Terror Attacks, Death Pangs of a Dying Religion ), Muslims need to make the painful transition of realising that they are not living in the 7th century and so need to adapt their faith by taking into account the sum of human knowledge gained subsequent to the time of the Prophet. I know this is easier said then done, whilst the european host nations need to strongly encourage secularism and discourage the likes of ANY faith schools whether they be Islamic, Jewish, Christian, Hindu Sikh or whatever the basis for their mythology. Whilst at the same time ensuring muslim populations are not alienated, marginalised or excluded as is the case in Belgium as the consequences will be many youth stating that they have nothing to live for, then go looking for a reason to die such as that offered by Islamic State.

The bottom line for Britain is that if the British people needed another wake up call to vote for BrExit then Brussels should be it, if not London WILL Fall! The European Union is just not up to the job to deal with any of the crisis that it faces, let alone the home grown Jihadists threat where the likes of Brussels have proved to be a breeding ground for. Unfortunately given at least 3000 trained Jihadists already back in Europe then probability strongly favours not one but perhaps as many as half a dozen Brussels like terror attacks over the coming months across Europe.
