Can the Brussels Airport attack happen here?

Travelers lining up at Rome’s Leonardo da Vinci Airport to check in for El Al flights and at nearby TWA and Pan American counters hit the floor when four or five terrorists rushed in at 9:10 a.m. and set off hand grenades. The terrorists then unleashed a barrage of submachine-gun fire. Thirteen people were killed and at least 70 wounded in the Rome attack, which lasted two to three minutes. Three of the dead were terrorists who were slain in a gun battle with security officers. Three people died in the Vienna attack, which started five minutes after the terrorists stormed the Rome airport. Among the dead in Vienna was one terrorist. At least 47 people were wounded.

The real question is how the attacks did not happen before? The news item and picture are from the Abu Nidal attack at the airport in Rome on December 27, 1985. Apparently not only we have not learned a damned thing after all the past attacks but we strove it to make it easier with all the TSA Theater Security Checkpoints.

It does not take a genius to imagine the casualty count of a couple of suicide bombers in the middle of this or any crowd at any airport in the US.  But the stupidity will not change until we have a pile of bodies and assorted body parts decorating an airport terminal.

Brothers Khalid & Brahim El Bakroui with Najim Lachraoui in the hat. All certified rednecks.

But we must make sure that potentially dangerous people do not gain access to airport terminals like the ones that attacked Brussels, right?
No, that would be racial profiling and CAIR would go on TV to cry racism. Instead, we must watch stupid shit like this being done in the name of “security”:

TSA patting down kid

With all that previous history of toddlers in wheelchairs blowing up airliners, we must be vigilant!

  1. I think I’m missing something
    “Brothers Khalid & Brahim El Bakroui with Najim Lachraoui in the hat. All certified rednecks.”

    Rednecks?
    I don’t see trucker hats, and the St. Andrews Cross…?
    What am I missing with this statement you made?

  2. I’m so glad the EU is taking semi auto guns away from civilians in Europe. It would prevent more bombings just like this one.

  3. But the stupidity will not change until we have a pile of bodies and assorted body parts decorating an airport terminal.

    And then the only change we’ll see is to ramp up the stupidity to epic levels. The powers that be will take it “up to 11”.

    And they still won’t acknowledge the elephant in the room. Old ladies will still have their knitting needles confiscated (wouldn’t want them to crochet an Afghan, would we?), and toddlers will still be subject to a search that in any other context would constitute a sexual assault (despite the TSA’s own policies that say persons under age 12 are not subject to “pat downs”). But stop a man who looks to be of Middle-Eastern descent? Perish the thought! That would be racial profiling! Wave him right on through!

    We’ll just subject everyone else to twice as many invasive searches to make up for not “offending” Islamophiles’ sensibilities. That’ll show the terrorists!
