ISIS/ISIL has claimed responsibility for attacks in Brussels, Belgium that have taken at least 30 lives and wounded hundreds. One of the attacks, a subway bombing took place near the portion of Brussels that serves as the seat of the European Union's governing institutions. It is likely any last pretense that the dream of Open Europe is on the way out. Back in November ISIS/ISIL militants coordinating with burner cell phones conducted a decentralized attack on the French Capital which left more than a hundred dead. In France the government of their Nth Republic has used the attacks as a pretext for rescinding whatever freedoms had previously been left to citizens by it and its N minus 1 predecessors.
