Let's face it, every jihad mass murder now prompts an open audition for a job at Hallmark greeting cards.
It's time for the Symbolic Illumination phase of the Useless Gesture Pageant

Next -- Mark Steyn, he of partial Belgian heritage, who has been writing repeatedly (and to no avail) throughout this century about the surrender of our civilization to Islamism.
As M Jambon, the Belgian Interior Minister, told CNN on Monday:
Jambon says the majority of young Muslims are well integrated into Belgian society, but admits his government has more to do to make some feel "at home" in their own country, given that a sense of alienation can leave them open to the threat of radicalization.
"We're talking about third- and fourth-generation [immigrants]; these youngsters are born in Belgium, even their fathers and mothers are born in Belgium, and still they are open for these kind of messages. This is not normal -- in the U.S., the second generation was the President; here, the fourth generation is an IS fighter -- so that is really something we have to work on."
So "British Muslims Fear Repercussions Over Tomorrow's Train Bombing" is now joined by "Belgian Cabinet Minister Says Tomorrow's Train Bombing Is All Our Fault".
So "we" have to work on it. That means you, the Flemish frequent flyer, poking your head up from the rubble at the airport concourse. And you, the Walloon strap-hanger blinking into the dust and chaos and wondering where the lower part of your left leg went. You are going to "have to work on" it, harder and harder and harder.
And finally, A proposed solution to the problem of ISIS from former Army Col. Kurt Schlister. A course of action decidedly different from one the current president would ever follow. How to WIN a war.
