The fruits of the failed multiculturalism experiment.


This is not a multiculturalism failure. This is a result of western capitalist/imperialist foreign policy. This is a result of corporate-backed western forces invading countries to steal their resources, to put in puppet governments and to have routes to get resources out.


Blah blah blah. The US didnt put a gun to this nutjobs head. Actually blame the person driving. Also Making money itself didnt cause this either. Iraq war 2. the CHINESE got a majority of the Oil. look it up.(and still are btw) And Crimea was not invaded by the west was it? Nope that was a eastern invasion.
Ukraine was recognized by russia as a legit government after the russian guy left as well by russia no less So once again no true invasion. money cant hold a gun or shoot a missile.

It is a failure of trying to allow two seperate cultures equal rights in france. West and east shall NEVER get along. its stupid to try.

Justin Trudeau (Canada's Prime Minister) is reported by CBSN to have tweeted that "Canadians were bowled over by this attack."

I just want to say that, as a Canadian, I am appalled by his choice of words. He has his good points but in some ways he is still a young kid.

To be fair to Mr. Trudeau, this might have simply been a poor translation of his tweet, in French.

www.lefigaro.fr...


Les Canadiens sont bouleversés par l'attentat de ce soir à Nice. Notre sympathie va aux victimes et notre solidarité, au peuple français.


Bouleversé can mean "bowled over" but it usually means something like "shocked". Apologies to M. Trudeau.

Apparently the truck drove for quite a distance before being stopped.

Maryam Violet, an Iranian journalist visiting Nice on holiday, told the Guardian she saw the lorry running over people as they walked in the pedestrian area after the fireworks had finished.

“Everyone was completely shocked, I saw that suddenly people were fleeing and shouting,” she said over the phone from Nice. “People were shouting, ‘It’s a terrorist attack, it’s a terrorist attack,’ it was clear that the driver was doing it deliberately,” she said.

“I was walking for nearly a mile and that there were dead bodies over the place … I think over 30 dead bodies are on the ground and lots of people are injured.”

The bodies had been covered by blue sheets.

“I saw two sisters and one brother from Poland that were mourning the death of their two other siblings,” Violet said. “The youngest one was crying and the other two just didn’t know how to react.

“There were so many Muslim people who were victims because I could see they had scarves over their head and some were speaking Arabic. One family lost a mother and in Arabic they were saying she’s a martyr.

“People were celebrating and it was so peaceful, it was a festivity vibe, it was right after the fireworks that the truck came and ran over people.”

Donald Trump has announced that he will delay the naming of his Vice Presidential running mate in view of the terror attack in Nice. This is very considerate of him, since his announcement would undoubtedly drive the Nice story right off the front pages, er . . . no, it would be the other way around, wouldn't it? Riiiight.

Latest from the BBC: 75 dead, 13 critically injured, 50 injured.

Apparently, according to the BBC, the truck driver drove for almost a mile down the Promenade des Anglais, steering from side to side to hit as many people as possible.

So what you are saying is that a terrorist attack is ok?.. I am sick and tired of hearing this BS, do you have any idea what mindset you need to kill innocent people. It is wrong on any front.

A large truck has ploughed into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the French Riveria city of Nice.

The incident, which left at least 70 dead, is being treated as a terrorist attack.

The driver of the truck has been killed by police. They are trying to determine if he had any accomplices.

Authorities say the man was firing on the crowd as he drove, and that the truck was loaded with arms and grenades.

Witnesses said the driver was purposefully aiming the vehicle at the crowd and “zigzagging” so that he could hit as many people as possible. It was reported that the attack lasted for two kilometres.

After the incident, the police advised residents of Nice to remain in their homes.


77 dead.

How many more people Europe, how many need to die before you wake up???..................

75+ People dead and hundreds if not thousands effected because of it directly. All because some idiotic moron thinks "his book is best". What a utter disgrace for a excuse of a human being they are.

Then you will have the liberal left that no doubt will try and spin this into it was a "road traffic collision", No it was Islam that made this happen, Buddhist are not out there doing this crap and even the Christians are coming into this century. But yet the MSM still cannot say that there is a problem. I guess I am now a Neo Nazi, facist bigot for stating this??....

Close. They'll say they (whites) weren't tolerant enough. If they would have treated the Arabs better Blah blah blah. Just like Hillary Clinton blames the cop killings in the states. Obama Clinton is working to get as many of those retards into the United States as possible and disarm the public.

People could be seen running in panic after a truck crashed into the crowd on Promenade des Anglais in Nice, France. Many people have been reportedly injured. There also have been unconfirmed reports of gunfire.

“There are people in blood, probably full of wounded,” a reporter for the Nice Matin newspaper said.

Many injured in Nice, France after truck drives into crowd, reports of gunfire

Now reports of up to 30 people dead. On the news now.

Truck drove through a crowd running over and killing dozens. People ordered to stay indoors.

Fox reporting there was a shootout between the driver and local police.

There will be a lot of speculation about who is ultimately responsible for this attack, whether it was done by a militant Islamist organization, by a lone wolf attacker acting independently or whether it was a "steered" intelligence operation like the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Given the security situation in France, and previous attacks, it is difficult to understand why traffic was not routed away from the Promenade des Anglais for the evening fireworks display. It amazes me that something like that would not have been done by one of France's many intelligence agencies. Even in the ordinary course of events, in a France untroubled by terrorism, wouldn't it make traffic safety sense to turn at least part of the Promenade into a pedestrian walkway for the evening?

The fact that it was not done, particularly under the current political circumstances in France is disturbing, to me at least. Maybe the large number of hotels along there, with bus tours, etc., would make it impossible.

Guardian news stream is stating the Driver is a dual passport holder with Tunisian heritage.

The odds of this being a Radical Islamic attack are very high, if indeed that was what it is?..


Details about the driver emerge - reports Both French TV station BFM and local newspaper Nice-Matin are reporting that the driver is a 31-year-old with dual French-Tunisian nationality. BFM is quoting a police source via Agence France-Presse who said that an ID card was found inside the truck. Reports say the man was a Nice resident.

It will be reported as a lone wolf, to try and ignore the huge elephant in the room.

The guy was shooting at the crowd as he was running them over.

Many Police reported dead.

Other Police shot multiple times, killing the terrorist/nut-job.

Guns/grenades reportedly found in truck.

Unclear if there is anyone else involved.

Reports of fire at the Eiffel Tower or of hostages are bogus.

Don't forget the French are still active in Mali. The Islamist angle is not clear-cut when it comes to France.

80 people are now confirmed dead with another 18 people in critical condition, so the death toll may still go up.

Ugh

- The driver of the truck has been killed by police. They are trying to determine if he had accomplices.

- Authorities said the man had been firing on the crowd as he drove, and that the truck was loaded with weapons and grenades.

- No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

- François Hollande, the French president, described the attack as a “monstrosity” and said soldiers would be deployed to support gendarmes and police, particularly at the country’s borders. He said the attack was “terrorist in nature” and vowed France would always be stronger than the fanatics that want to attack her.

- The state of emergency, which was due to expire on 26 July, is to be extended for another three months.

- The interior minister, Bernard Cazeneuve, said: “We are at war with terrorists who want to strike us at any cost and who are extremely violent.”

- Hollande will head to Nice on Friday morning. Cazeneuve is on his way to Nice.
