“Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel tweeted this afternoon: ‘I strongly condemn the attack at Charleroi. My thoughts are with the victims, their loved ones and the police. We are following the situation very closely.'”
These weak, tepid, pro-forma responses are increasingly embarrassing. Who cares if Charles Michel condemns the attack? Was there ever any doubt that the Prime Minister of Belgium would condemn an attack on two Belgian police officers? Who cares if his thoughts are with the victims, their loved ones, and the police? What are his thoughts going to accomplish? Who cares if he is following the situation? The big unanswered question is, What is he going to do to prevent this from happening again? And the answer is: nothing. Nothing at all, except import more jihadis and get ready for the next jihad attack so that he can issue another condemnation.
