As many as 31 people were killed and more than 180 injured as coordinated terrorist bombings rocked the Brussels airport and subway system during rush hour Tuesday morning in the Belgian capital.

Two bombings at Zaventem Airport, where 11 people were reportedly killed, and another at the metro station in the Maelbeek section near the European Union headquarters, where the mayor's office said 20 were killed, were almost immediately confirmed as terrorism. The attack at the airport was reportedly accompanied by shouts in Arabic and gunfire, and an unexploded suicide belt was reportedly found in the aftermath.

"What we feared has happened, we were hit by blind attacks," said Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel.

"We are at war,” French Prime Minister Manuel Valls said Tuesday. “We have been subjected for the last few months in Europe to acts of war."

It's incredibly sad. But let's not also forget the bombings at Ankara which were mostly neglected by the media only several days ago, as well as the countless terrorist attacks that have been occuring in the middle east by both Muslim extremists and American soldiers since 9/11.
