Re: Terrorist attack in Nice, France - truck runs over crowd

It's mind boggling how Islamic terrorists have nothing at all to do with Islam? I can understand peaceful Muslims don't want to be associated with them, but turning a blind eye won't make it go away. As a comparison, if a Swiss person goes to another country and kills people, the majority of Swiss will condemn it, but still you can't say that he is not Swiss and has nothing to do with Switzerland.

I think, this has nothing to do (anymore) with Islam or religion or believe.
I think, all this groups like Isis are strong magnets for all Psychopath or deeply depressed people who feel the need to run free. No real logic behind...

Very very sad day again...
a very very sad day? sounds like you are depressed.

dont do it man! dont join isis!

Re: Terrorist attack in Nice, France - truck runs over crowd

I have to admit that I admire how you guys can talk about this in such a way.

Personally I feel so sick just wondering for a second how it felt to plough over all those people, and just keep on going.

Why wouldn't we talk about it? Terrorism is turning out to be one of, if not the, defining issues of this era.

I guess her emphasis is on "how" and not "what". How you discuss vs what you discuss...

Have no issues whatsoever with the discussion.

Just see this attack as a new level of terrorism and/or insanity - not a bomb, gun-shooting etc - all pretty simple. This needed more than that. I'm shocked to the core to be honest.

Nothing at all, he was probably feeling totally detached and calm, on a totally different plane of existence.

I think shock is pretty much what everyone feels, regardless of what position they've taken in the debate.

Terrorism does seem to have not just spread, but evolved. The days of the weather network, IRA, FLQ, RAF, Red Brigades seem mild in comparison in the sense that they had a vestigial sense of fair play.

I was surprised that nothing happened during the UEFA. More so that nobody was shot when the Russians went wild in the streets. I don't envy anyone in counter terrorism trying to isolate and react to the threat.

Calling terrorists who abducted, and sometimes tortured, and killed their victims, having a sense of fair play is quite rich.

There's no difference to today's islamists. Both target at will, and kill, members of the group they've defined as the enemy. Both strive for maximum effect.

I knew someone would pick up on that. "Vestigial": There were some things that those groups shied away from. The change is that terrorism isn't making just a political point anymore.
