It's a new normal for Europe, where terror alerts are always on high and where people in cities so far spared major violence assume it's a matter of when, not if.The carnage in Brussels Tuesday came as Europe was still reeling from the November attacks by Islamist militants in Paris that killed 130 people.The rest of Europe has watched with trepidation.They could just as well be attacks in Britain or France or Germany or elsewhere in Europe," British Prime Minister David Cameron told the BBC Tuesday. He said Britain's threat level remains "severe," meaning an attack is considered highly likely.French President Francois Hollande said the attacks targeted all of Europe and he warned of a long "war" ahead.In Moscow, security has been tightened notably at everyday locations in the wake of a series of attacks in the past 15 years.There haven't been any attacks by Islamist extremists in Germany since Arid Uka shot dead two American servicemen at Frankfurt airport in 2011 .Even in small countries on Europe's periphery the same fears are palpable.
