Terrorists thrive on creating terror. After this attack, the politicians are acting, the Eurosceptics and racists are making an opportunity from this, people are afraid. However 25000 people are killed on the roads of the EU every year…that is 68 EVERY day (witness the tragedy in Spain….13 students killed in a coach crash). So twice the number killed in Brussels today were killed on Europe’s roads….but not a whisper in the news. 68 will die tomorrow, 68 will die on Thursday….136 will die next weekend….and so it goes on….the reaction to the terrorists hands them a victory. The risk of being killed by terrorists is extremely small compared to every day hazards likes cars or else ….a bit of perspective will deprive the terrorists of their victory through the oxygen of publicity and fear.
