    Thinking about the brussels attacks and the paris attacks, could it be a sign that Isis are trying to get to england? Maybe a form of frustration that they aren't able to carry attacks in london? Because brussels nor paris were initial targets? I'm not completely educated on th subject so no one take it the wrong way

    Maybe for Paris, but I would think Brussels was a target because it is the EU capital (de facto). Surely Brussels is more of a target than London is? A terrorist group that wants to spread fear and destabilise the western system would want to target the political centre.

    Terrorists do not have the power to overthrow a country by military force, so they instead aim to destabilise the country through fear and economic damage. Terrorists will target people and important parts of the country (such as core travel links) to disrupt normal life as much as possible. They target innocent people because they are easy targets and leave a bigger mark on the people of the country than if some soldiers died in some isolated base.
