Europæiske ledere mener, at det holder at sende tweets som udtrykker sympati og medfølelse. Men de er ikke individer, de er ledere med ansvar for sikkerheden i samfundet. Det ser de ikke ud til at ville forstå.

Bruxelles er EUs hovedstad. Metro-bomben gik af en kilometer fra EUs hovedkvarter. Donald Tusk sagde angrebene var et nyt lavpunkt. Lavpunkt? Det er krig, og de har sagt i lang tid.

European Council president Donald Tusk said the bombings represented “another low” from the terrorists.

He said: “I am appalled by the bombings this morning at Zaventem airport and the European district in Brussels which have cost several innocent lives and injured many others.

“I extend my sincerest sympathies to the relatives and friends of the victims. These attacks mark another low by the terrorists in the service of hatred and violence.

“The European institutions are hosted in Brussels thanks to the generosity of Belgium’s government and its people. The European Union returns this solidarity now and will fulfil its role to help Brussels, Belgium and Europe as a whole counter the terror threat which we are all facing.”

Denne meddelelse viser, at Tusk ikke havde nogen svar, det er tungen ud af munden.

Når man ser billeder af Zaventem, kunne man spørge: Er dette passende ord, er de tilstrækkelige til, hvad vi ser?

Og hvad de skal sige om den belgiske premierminister, Charles Michel, han kalder angrebene “blinde”

At a press conference, Mr Michel called the attacks “blind, violent and cowardly”.

He added: “We must face this challenge in solidarity, united, together.”

Norges udenriksminister Børge Brende spørges per telefon om angrebet vil få følger for Europas evne og mulighed til at mottage flere “flygtninger”. Hans svar:

“- Det håber jeg ikke bliver et tema.”
