Re: Again and again and again...

Condolences to all in Nice.

Apparently ISIS plan to attack beach resorts in France, Italy & Spain.
I will certainly be vigilant on my trip to the Canary Islands in September.

Unbelievable that it was supposedly a French Government vehicle.
If this keeps happening it might lead to the break up of the EU.

Be interesting to see if it was a French/Belgian National or an immigrant from Syria.

Terror is our common enemy. My deepest sympathy and support goes out to the victims and people of France. 🇫🇷

Why, Mrs. A?

One of the deepest feminine pleasures is when a man stands full, present, and unreactive in the midst of his woman's emotional storms. When he stays present with her, and loves her through the layers of wildness and closure, then she feels his trustability, and she can relax. -- David Deida, The Way of the Superior Man

Because some countries may decide to get antsy with the undocumenteds... against EU policy.

I think France oughta put their armed forces to the task and without waiting attack in Syria... air attacks work well.

How would that help?

It's a game of attrition. Pretty effective.

Is it? This guy was a French Tunisian. How would attacking Syria (I'm assuming you're talking about hitting ISIS in Syria) do anything about that?

More and more of these guys are home grown lone wolves that are just glomming on to ISIS without ever actually being directly involved with them. How do you stop that?

Whoa, I had not heard that yet. (Admittedly I try to get the facts while letting as little of this as possible into my consciousness.)

My husband told me that Al Quaeda's magazine "Inspire" (yes they have a magazine, no, that is not satire...) had an article encouraging people to do this very exact thing - the truck, the guns, the pedestrian area, etc. - some time back.

Re: Again and again and again...

It sure is a good thing that France has strict gun laws. At least that way they can ensure that there are no mass murders… oh, wait… (*scratches head*)

So let's say, hypothetically, that one country in the EU - we'll call it Germany - has a very liberal immigration policy and is letting in thousands of people claiming to be refugees from areas rife with terrorists, and amongst those immigrants are likely many terrorists. And let's also say that many of the immigrants are not terrorists, but they bring with them a culture where it's fine/normal to attack, molest, rape and even kill non-Muslim women.

So, Germany's has the right to let in anyone they want. That is their choice. But if another EU country - let's call it France - does not want to allow those people into their country, they are screwed. They are subject to the whims of the other EU countries as long as they are part of the EU, since once someone is in any EU nation, the law is that they can cross the borders into other EU nations freely.

Originally, that was one of the big selling points of the EU - ease of travel and commerce amongst nations. (Kind of like the states in the US. Once you're in the US, you're in. You can cross into any state.)

Now, with terrorism, what it means is that individual countries in the EU do not have control of their borders or sovereignty.

I believe this was a driving factor in BREXIT.

Funny, I was thinking tonight: I wonder if people in France wish they were allowed to carry guns because if just a handful of people in that crowd were armed, possibly someone could have stopped that driver sooner. Apparently he drove something like a mile and a half massacring people.

But that's probably the American in my talking. The culture in France is probably not one where people think having a gun could be normal.

Start at the "top"... Wherever that may be. I know it's the George W Bush approach but eventually it will work
