Abstract:

Talking about the way a country deals with the threat of CB terrorism is like taking the plunge you may fall on the left side or on the right side of the rope, but nobody expects you to make it. Going into much in details will give problems with the authorities at home, talking about generalities exposes you to catcalls from the audience. To guarantee our health and safety in the short and long term, we want to state that all information used in this paper is openly available and that the answer to the question why, is much more interesting for this audience than the facts, enumerated in the chapter How. Indeed, the way we deal or dont with this particular problem is dictated by history, culture and actual emergency system. In another time, in another counfly, this system just wouldnt work. So lets first consider some basics to help us understand the actual situation in Belgium.
