Terrorists Weaponizing Everyday Life

The situation in Turkey remains unclear, at least at the time I'm writing this.

But then again, so are the details of lone wolf attack in Nice, France.

If you only watch CNN and read the New York Times, you'd think that a self-aware truck was responsible for the terrorist attack.  This is yet another attempt to avoid implicating, let alone outright declaring, that the perpetrator may have been influenced by the violent aspects of Islam.

For us infidels, this latest attack demonstrates how easy it is to commit an atrocity, and how hard it is to stop one.  While it's been reported that the driver had at least one gun and an unknown number of hand grenades, the majority of casualties were inflicted by driving his truck through the crowd.

What we're faced with now is that the "weaponization of everyday life" is making traditional counterterrorism tactics obsolete.  I don't know about you, but I've felt every day life has been weaponized since the Boston Marathon Bombers used pressure cookers for their bombs.

Meanwhile, our political ruling class, and the media (the same media attempting to memory-hole Islam out of any terrorist incident involving a Muslim), are encouraging us to meekly attend candle-light vigils and sign up for various hashtags.

Katie Hopkins declares we should stop waiting to be slaughtered and demand our leaders do something.

And by "slaughtered," more often than we're told, doesn't mean being quietly euthanized.  It's now coming to light that several victims in last November's Bataclan attack were tortured.
