Europeans Need to “Learn to Live With Terror Attacks” Says AP Writer
Associated Press writer Lori Hinnant says Europe needs to “learn to live with terror attacks”.
In her recent article, picked up by several outlets, including the Los Angeles Daily News, select quotes include:
The steady stream of attacks on centers of daily life have drawn pledges from Europeans not to let terrorists change how they live, but in ways large and small they already have.
There is a heightened awareness and quicker reactions, especially in the hardest-hit countries of France, Britain and Belgium, that would have seemed unthinkable just a few years ago.
Echoing France, London’s security authorities have issued advice to pubs and restaurants since the attacks with the message of “Run, Tell and Hide.” The advice includes establishing whether the threat is inside or outside and not waiting for police to decide whether the venue should be locked down or evacuated.
Still, tourists and Parisians still flock to the Champs-Elysees, watched over by camouflaged soldiers carrying automatic rifles. And in Brussels, the day after the fizzled metro bombing, the headlines focused on how to cope with the recent heat wave.
The weather, it seems, is not going away — just like the jihadi threats.
This article comes on the heels of the latest terror-attack-of-the-week, the Brussels train station attack. (Note, that sentence could be outdated by the end of the week.)
