So was it a truck? Or an assault truck?

    Meghan Kelly had a guy on her show last night who was dubbed as an 'EX-extremist' (whatever that means). He says he doesn't prefer the term 'lone wolf' which is often used to describe all these nut jobs who don't have a direct affiliation with any organized groups. Said he prefers the term 'self starter'.

    My opinion is that you don't have to be an official member of a terror group to represent them. If you carry out an act of terror with a pledge of ANY group...then you might as well be a card totin' member. Whether they recruit you in person or via internet....you're part of them.

    The term 'self radicalized' is just stoopid.

    The terrorist in Nice was a Tunisian immigrant to France in 2005 and was named Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel.
    It has been "reported" that he shouted allahu akbar at one point.
    Sounds very familiar.

    Also reported that he was not very religious, more of a loner, and not a known associate of any terror organization. These are the ones that are hard to detect.

    I haven't read of the allahu snackbar thing, wonder how it was heard over all the noise, commotion, and at the end, all the gun shots?

    Another gut wrencher out of this is the video and pictures of bodies all over the ground and many with a person just standing or sitting next to the body. Realizing that it is most likely the loved one of the deceased and they don't want to leave them just lying in the street alone. Their in shock and don't know what to do. I guess I'd do the same thing. Heart breaking.

    This was the 10th Muslim terrorist attack in France since 01-Jan-2015. I wish people would stop pretending not to know what motivates attacks like this.

    When they are citizens among you it's hard to weed them out. That's happening everywhere and they have the welcome mat rolled out in the name of PC. That was a tragic thing that happend, especially the children. Death on scene for the murderer was too good a punishment. It's time to close the door and start making a example of these dimented people. Peace through appeasement is not working, our kindness has become our weakness.

    Just got back from vacationing in France. We chose France because we felt they've had a rough go lately and we wanted to show our support. State Dept cautioned against traveling there but that would be letting the terrorist win. The people couldn't have been nicer. They were more saddened about the events in Orlando vs their own attacks in Paris. Anywhere we went, they were always willing to help. Now this tragedy strikes and it just makes no sense. So many innocent people.

    Here's my 2 cents... maybe it's time the media enforce a global rule to not promote any information about the attacker, his/her "cause" or connection to any extremist group. If ISIS calls to claim responsibility, it won't go on the airwaves. If the attacker leaves behind a manifesto, it won't be displayed. They will get zero recognition for their acts. Zero media time. No five minutes of fame or anything else that these extremist count on when acts like this occur.

    If they don't get any "free advertising" maybe they'll see it's not worth pursuing. On the other hand, if we spend 5 days and nights disclosing what the guy had for breakfast, who his friends were or how he was rejected in high school, more of these extremist will seek their path to fame.

    Our hearts are with the great people of France.

    This is exactly right. These sick ****s promote through social media. All the other lone wolf nut jobs out there are losers that grow up alone with a chip on their shoulder that want to be remembered for having done something. If they got no air time, they may not do it.

    Extremists are extremists. Canada is full of muslims and Syrian refugees. Why haven't these type of attacks happened in Canada ? For whatever reason we have been very fortunate to not have a whole lot of nut jobs here, what the reason is I don't know, but the reason definitely isn't because we lack members of certain religious groups.

    A great movie to watch which illustrates how extremists think is called the green prince.
