Let’s say a prayer for the families affected.
I first heard the terrible news on the radio at 8 AM and went to my news sources.
We know that there was an attack at the airport and one on the metro.
A total of 34 people were killed right away and around 170 more were wounded.
For comparison’s sake, the Paris attacks killed 130 and wounded 367.
Many jumped to the conclusion that this attack was carried out in retaliation for the arrest of Salah Abdeslam on Friday.
ISIS has come out and claimed credit for the attacks.
That’s all in the mainstream media. Other reports are making links to more nefarious schemes.
For instance, we know the Paris attacks were on Friday the 13th. Many are drawing parallels to the date of March 22 as “322.”
The reason this is important is the Yale University Skull and Bones secret society has as its number “Chapter 322.”
We know that Brussels is the “de facto imperial capital of the European Union.”
Some are already calling the EU a new USSR, a place where “the general populace of the Eurozone has absolutely no say in decision-making process.”
Now let’s turn our attention to how this affects us.
- Belgium is 4,669 miles from Montana, and 3,716 miles of that distance is ocean.
- More than 11 million people live in the country, meaning it has 2.2% of the European Union’s population.
- In 2005 Belgium had a GDP of $329 billion. Per capita GDP is $31,800.
Why does any of this matter?
Because I want to make it quite clear that Belgium can take care of itself.
They have to take care of themselves – it’s a prerequisite and continuous requirement to calling yourself a nation-state.
If you can’t take care of yourself you have no right to exist.
Currently, Belgium can’t take care of itself.
I’m sorry, but having 34 people die in terrorist attacks…how is that in anyway taking care of yourself?
So what can Belgium do?
Lots of things.
I suspect the first thing they’ll do is follow the example of Paris and panic.
That means basic human rights will be curtailed. Most people will be fine with this.
The media will discuss it for a bit and then they’ll “forget.” Since we only get the corporate media’s viewpoint, that’s not a mistake.
The mistake is thinking that this isn’t some larger scheme to reshape the world into a bastion for the 1%, a world where we do nothing but serve them.
What we saw in Belgium today will only speed up that process.
You might remember my November 17 post called Let’s Talk About Syria, Arms Dealers, Oil Profits, and War.
- We really laid out what 74 countries our 160,000 American overseas troops are in;
- We profiled the $72.8 billion in revenue the American arms industry makes each year;
- We talked about the 47 major American arms dealers and the $235 billion a year global industry they belong to.
The reason we talked about that 4 days after the Paris attacks last year was because we’re smart.
- We know that there’s a lot more going on here than just some disgruntled youth that are living in Europe.
- We know that there’s a huge profit incentive for western, developed nations to exploit all kinds of fear.
That’s what we’ll see ramp up now that we had these most recent attacks today in Belgium - fear.
Currently America has 1,196 troops in Belgium.
There is absolutely no reason for us to send troops there, or anywhere else for that matter.
We need to bring our troops home so they can start rebuilding this country.
The fact that we’re not even talking about “shovel-ready jobs” anymore is a sad travesty in a long line of ‘em.
You know how I feel – the country is controlled by a secret cabal of rich men, most of whom are based in Europe and control us through their Federal Reserve system.
Until we decide to look at that situation and do something about it, this country will continue its slide into oblivion.
- The federal government has nearly $20 trillion in debt.
- States don’t have money to fix their infrastructure.
- People are losing hope.
It’s time we stop lying to ourselves and start looking for answers from sources other than large corporations.
That’s who you’ll likely get your news from today in regard to these attacks, however.
I’m sure you’ll get it tomorrow as well, and the day after.
How is that helping you? How is that helping the country?
Please try and look at things with an open mind. This world is not right and I think you know that.
- Use your critical eye.
- Demand answers.
This world is not right. Our current methods are not working. We need to change.
I hope we can do that.
Update 3/22 Evening: There was one image of the Bataclan Theatre massacre that got out. Many think that it's a satanic heart symbol that's been made there on the floor in blood.
Some are now commenting on the red heart logo of the Zaventem Airport in Brussels. Some are pointing at comments Turkish president Erdoğan has said about false flag attacks.
In trying times, it's best to keep an open mind.
