Terrorist Attack in Spain—Look, Kittens!

Listen to the Aug. 24, 2017, episode of the Trumpet Daily Radio Show.

Dutch police announced today that they had stopped yet another terrorist attack—this time at a rock concert in Rotterdam. In Spain, Twitter users were sharing pictures of kittens so that people wouldn’t have to see the dead bodies on the streets of Barcelona. But refusing to face reality is not a solution.

Elsewhere though there are signs of a shift in Europe. The terrorist attacks in Europe will keep getting worse until there is a response. TheTrumpet.comassistant managing editor Richard Palmer examines where this is leading and what this response will look like.

Also on today’s program, we discuss Anne Applebaum’s statement, “Germany must abandon its military reluctance and lead,” and why Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg is listed as the third-most likely individual to be Germany’s next chancellor.
