It is indeed a “war scene,” and part of a war that is ongoing, that Brussels and the rest of Europe have invited for themselves and still refuse to admit is happening. These attacks were revenge for the arrest of Salah Abdeslam. The jihadis, like their Leftist allies, would prefer the West surrender quietly.
“Brussels in lockdown: Deadly blasts confirmed as suicide attacks,” TVNZ, March 22, 2016 (thanks to Lookmann):
It has been confirmed that a series of explosions in Brussels are the result of terror attacks, a Belgian prosecutor says.
Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte says Belgium has “again been hit by cowardly and murderous attacks. Our hearts go out to the victims and next of kin. The Netherlands stands ready to help and support our southern neighbors in any possible way.”

After Abdeslam was arrested, Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders said authorities learned he had created a new network around him and had access to several weapons, though there was no immediate indication that he or the Islamic State group had any involvement in today’s attacks.
Belgian media reported 13 people were killed at the airport. It was not clear whether any died in the metro explosion.
Zach Mouzoun, who arrived on a flight from Geneva about 10 minutes before the first blast, told BFM television that the second, louder explosion brought down ceilings and ruptured pipes, mixing water with blood from victims.
“It was atrocious. The ceilings collapsed,” he said. “There was blood everywhere, injured people, bags everywhere.”
“We were walking in the debris. It was a war scene,” he said….
