Breaking: Scores Dead, Injured In Nice, France Terrorist Attack

Update: News is reporting at least 73 murdered. Also, the truck was supposedly chock full of guns and grenades.

It might be worth considering that had just identified the real leader of the previous Paris Islamist terrorist attack.

(Fox News/AP) A large truck drove into a crowd of people who had gathered for a Bastille Day fireworks show Thursday in the southern French city of Nice, killing at least 30 people and injuring 100 more in an apparent terror attack, officials said.

A police official told France’s BFM TV that the driver of the truck was also dead. A witness, Wassim Bouhlel, told the Associated Press that he saw the truck drive into the crowd, then witnessed the driver emerge with a gun and start shooting.

“There was carnage on the road,” Bouhlel said. “Bodies everywhere.”

The Telegraph is quoting the Nice prosecutors office, which said that there are 60 dead, as are many other outlets. The UK Express is reporting the same. Also

French officials have confirmed that they are investigasting a terrorist attack and there are unconfirmed reports that there are gunmen on the loose in the city. French TV channel iTele tonight reported that a gunman “holed up in a nice restaurant downtown” had been “neutralized” by police.

and

Police have identified the driver, who was killed during the incident, and it is believed to have been a man who was known to security services. Separate reports emerged tonight that police fear four different trucks are involved, raising fears of a massive organised terror attack.

The police supposedly shot at the truck.

“The truck that drove into the crowd.”

There’s plenty of video, especially at the Express link, which is pretty horrific. Soldiers are also deployed all over the area.

What’s the over/under on the person or persons involved being someone who would yell Allahu Akbar?

    Your leader did.

  5. […] The Pirate’s Cove has more links to the coverage of the attack. It’s so awful, I just wish that leaders of the Western world were doing more to take out ISIS and their followers so we would stop getting news like this every time we turn around. Today it’s France, where will it be the next time? […]

    Probably sand lutherans. They’ve been a problem lately.

    Your just bothered that Allahu and god are the same imaginary guy.

    Obarky, woken from his stoned stupor by Valjar and pumped full of poppers, will walk pigeon-toed down the red rug to the preznit podium. In his glassy-eyed monotone, sizzling his ssszzz, he will read teleprompter to “Not jump to conclusions. No known motive. Not a terrorist attack. Never fear, isis, the jv team, is defeated.” His facial mole will be blinking in red alert, like Drudge’s siren. His entire team will be face-planting onto their prayer rugs, ass up, hoping it is one of those white Nazi types from Germany.

    Meanwhile, the State Dept will hashtag. There will be celebrity twitters. Empire State building will once again show the colors of France. Angela will welcome more refuges to her ample bosom. And France will call them what they are, terrorist barbarians…yet nothing will change. xoxo

    50?

  10. David7134 says:

    Every one should thank Obama for this carp, and don’t forget Hillary too. Those that voted for that scrum should understand that this blood is on them. Jeff’s comment show the typical liberal nut.

  11. Jeffery says:

    dave,

    How will Trump stop terrorist attacks in France?

  12. Hoagie says:

    This was an attack by an assault truck. We must have a serious conversation about common-sense safeguards against these dangerous assault trucks. These assault trucks capable of mowing down people at 50 per second and they’re easier to get than a book. These assault trucks should only be available to the military and not for civilian use.

  13. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    Making jokes about dozens killed. Nice. Typical conservative christianist. Good lord, you’re horrible.

    Give it a break and go assfuck your grandson or something.

    • John says:

      Conservatives have a warlord sense of humor
      Actually he also had military type guns and grenades
      I suppose you think neither of those should be banned either
      You appear to be a lonely and bitter old man who has only an old dog for companionship

  15. Jeffery says:

    Gingrich told Fox News host Sean Hannity. “We should, frankly, test every person here who is of a Muslim background, and if they believe in Sharia, they should be deported. Sharia is incompatible with Western civilization.”

    So a leader of the GOP wants a religious purity test.

  16. Jeffery says:

    the vile little puppy who fantasizes about being assfucked by Donald Trump

  17. JGlanton says:

    The purpose of revolution is to cause chaos so confused people fight each other.

  18. Dana says:

    The CNN scroll blurb said that Donald Trump called for a war on Da’ish, while Hillary Clinton called for an “intelligence surge.”

    One of those policies would kill terrorists; the other would not.

  19. Hoagie says:

    So a leader of the GOP wants a religious purity test.

    No, you idiot, he wants a security check. Sharia is a political system which opposes ours and those who are followers have declare war on us. It’s very similar to leftism where they want the death of Americans, Christians and Jews. Since you seem to share their views, I thought you would know that. Why, do you want these people here killing your family, friends and neighbors? Why are you leftists so enamored by murdering moslems yet constantly spout hate about your Christian countrymen? You seem to have more in common with people who hate and would kill you than people who would love and help you. Very odd.

    By the way, if you thought my previous comment was a joke, that is exactly how you sound when you talk about assault weapons that aren’t assault weapons. There is nothing funny about the inability to identify the problem, ISLAM, because it interferes with your political agenda. That’s how absurd you sound when you blame the inanimate object for the action of the killer. Are they “less dead” because he used a truck and not a gun? And as usual, a man with a gun stopped him.

  20. Hank_M says:

    “Another terrorist attack for American conservatives to celebrate! You must be so happy.”

    Unbelievable, even for you jeffrey.
    Another heart breaking terrorist attack and you immediately use it for political gain.
    Get help. You need it.

  21. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    We’re not surprised you and Teach use this tragedy for shits and grins, and to score political points. It’s hilarious because they’re French, right? Hardy har!

    Newton’s response is symptomatic of what happens when frightened conservatives panic. His first thought is to suspend our Constitution and deport citizens with WrongThink.

    How would Newt’s “test” work? “Mrs. Johnson, do you support Sharia law?” Idiots.

    Should the West just formally declare war on Islam and start purging? It would give conservatives a new purpose.

    And Mr. Trump would use our military to invade several more nations, now including Tunisia, in an attempt to kill off ISIL? That’s his plan??? Invading Iraq turned out so, so well.

  22. Jeffery says:

    Since reports say many of the dead are Muslim, do conservatives subtract that number from the total?

  23. Jeffery says:

    Hank_M,

    The solution to conservatives celebrating terrorist attacks is for conservatives to stop celebrating terrorist attacks.

  24. Hoagie says:

    Seems the only one celebrating or making political points is you Jeffery. In case you don’t realize it Islam has already declared war on us. Your failure to understand that is perplexing. Moslems have the same love for America that communists do: zero.

  25. Hank_M says:

    Save it jeff. You’re vile and beneath contempt.

  26. Dana says:

    It’s typical: a terrorist who was probably Muslim, and probably deliberately killing people to advance some Islamist goal, slaughters over 80 people, and Jeffrey’s reaction is to attack American conservatives.

    One of us is not surprised.

  27. Dana says:

    You know, Jeffrey is such a caricature of a liberal that sometimes I wonder if our host just sock-puppets this stuff, to generate conversation. I mean, it’s not like Jeffrey bears any resemblance to reality.

    • John says:

      Dana care to explain again how you missed out on Vietnam?
      Or why you aren’t over in Iraq right now fighting ISIS ?

  28. Hoagie says:

    I mean, it’s not like Jeffrey bears any resemblance to reality sanity.

  29. Hoagie says:

    A moslem democrat kills people in Orlando and it’s the guns fault. A moslem kills 80 people in Nice and it’s the conservatives that are causing problems. There is something about the mental disease of leftism that precludes the victim from connecting dots.

  30. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    The murderers were responsible for the murders, not Islam. Our fight is with violent Islamic extremists, just as in the 80s and 90s our fight was with violent christianist extremists. We didn’t end the clinic attacks by banning fundamentalist christianists, did we? Even conservatives should understand this.

    Almost every murder in the US is committed by christians, but not by christianity. See?

    Almost every crime in the US is committed by christians, but not by christianity. See?

    The conservative response (e.g., Newt’s) is a calculated political ploy and is counterproductive to propose and would make the situation worse if enacted.

    The American right is following the ISIS plan. They want you to declare war on Islam.

  31. Jeffery says:

    Newton now claims his words were taken out of context.

    Good lord…

  32. drowningpuppies says:

    Total bullshit, like everything that little coward writes.
    Keep sucking that ISIS cock.

    • John says:

      That’s it Hoagie let the rage out don’t bottle it up
      And let the homophobia out to
      Were you sexually abused is that where that rage is coming from?
      Why is it that the problems all seem to be coming from rightwing religious conservatives ? These people who think that sex is bad and that they have done obligation to the sky God to enforce their beliefs on others ?
      And Hoagie why aren’t you over there fighting ISIS right now ?
      Your life seems pretty well shit anyway?

  33. drowningpuppies says:

    Don’t be getting any funny ideas while driving your truck, retard.

    Somewhere, a monastery is missing an idiot.

  34. Hank_M says:

    John, I’m sure you think using the chickenhawk card is clever and wins you a lot of debates.

    It isn’t. It’s stupid.

    I also note you haven’t condemned the terrorist attack in Nice. Instead you use it to make political points against those you disagree with. Just as jeffry did in the very first comment to this topic.

    What is wrong with you?

  35. Jeffery says:

    Total bullshit, like everything that little coward writes.

    Newt is a lot of things, but “coward” certainly isn’t his worst trait.

  36. drowningpuppies says:

    Keep sucking that ISIS cock, little guy.

  37. Dana says:

    John is unintentionally humorous:

    Actually he also had military type guns and grenades
    I suppose you think neither of those should be banned either

    Duh! This happened in France, where those things are banned. I guess that means that he didn’t have those weapons, right?

  38. Dana says:

    John wrote:

    And Hoagie why aren’t you over there fighting ISIS right now?

    Hoagie is a Vietnam combat veteran; he’s also over 65 right now.

    Dana care to explain again how you missed out on Vietnam?

    President Nixon ended American combat involvement in Vietnam just as I was coming of military age. I could have been drafted, but wasn’t. If I had been drafted, I’d still have missed Vietnam.

  39. Hoagie says:

    Only a compete fool can compare a crime committed by a person who is Christian with a terrorist attack committed by a moslem in the name of Allah for the advancement of Islam. If you’re not intelligent enough to understand the difference between a crime and an act of war then you shouldn’t comment at all.

    Islam does not believe in Nation States or Mans Laws and instead simply divides the world in to two parts ‘Dar es-Salaam’ the ‘Place of Peace’ where Islam and Shariah rule and ‘Dar al-Harb” the ‘Place of War’ where KAFIRS (unbelievers) rule and where Muslims are OBLIGED to perform JIHAD , either by DECEIT or by VIOLENCE , until Islam and Shariah does rule.
    Once that happens the KAFIRS are given three choices 1) Convert (or as they put it REVERT to Islam as they believe EVERYONE is born Muslim and only led astray by their parents and society) to Islam 2) Pay the JIZYA TAX and become Dhimmies Second Class Citizens in your own country 3) DIE.
    Needless to say Feminazis, HOMOS , JEWS and Bruce Jenners only get option #3.
    Which of course means you cannot allow a SINGLE MUSLIM to come and live in your country if you value your FREEDOM.

  40. Hoagie says:

    According to French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, who said this in a speech:

    “Times have changed, and France is going to have to live with terrorism, and we must face this together and show our collective sang-froid,” he said. “France is a great country and a great democracy and we will not allow ourselves to be destabilized.”

    When did Jeffery start writing speeches for the French? How about every Western country surrender to the barbarians because we can’t deport enemies? If Jeffery lived in 1941 would he be against deporting Nazi’s?

  41. really? says:

    Jeffery you need help? Perhaps a mortician?

  42. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie,

    Would you deport citizens whom you consider “enemies”, as Newt proposed?

    Should we also deport violent fundamentalist Mormons such as those associated with the Bundy gang, or just Muslims?

    Bonus question: Can you describe what you think “shariah” to be?

  43. Jeffery says:

    Hoagie typed:

    you cannot allow a SINGLE MUSLIM to come and live in your country

    To do so obviously violates our Constitution as much as banning all firearms, so are you pushing to repeal or change the 1st Amendment?

  44. Hoagie says:

    Before you thoroughly drown yourself in your own ignorance Jeffery, red this article by an expert on Islam and Sharia. I have studied the Koran since I was 14. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve read it through and outlined it.

    We should no more allow moslems in America today than we would have allowed Nazi’s here in 1942. You are so afraid of Christians, why? What do Bundy and Mormons have to do with the Theocratic State of Islam?

    The implementation of the Islamic religious law is known as Sharia. Sharia Law governs not just religion, but a Muslim’s “political, social, domestic, and private life.” The Western tradition is that laws are implemented by men to establish just societies, however people living in different times and places may construe justice. But Sharia Law is based on the Koran. Muslims regard the Koran to be the literal word of Allah, a god they consider to be God. It cannot be amended, modified or reformed. It is an absolute. Since at least the advent of Greek democracy in the fifth century BC, this is a concept utterly foreign to the Western experience and tradition. Observant Muslims cannot conscientiously participate in democratic governments. They will go along with them until they reach the point at which they can implement Sharia Law by force.

    Hoagie admits

    I have studied the Koran since I was 14

    .

    I propose the US government interrogate you to determine your fitness to live among us.

    I love christians! In fact, I’ve loved several (nudge, nudge, wink, wink), but never at the same time.

    Yet, I am cautious regarding fundamentalists of any religious persuasion. Given the opportunity, fundamentalist christians would impose their own version of christian sharia if they gained power, just as would fundamentalist Muslims.

    If you were king of America would you ban abortions? Would you ban gay marriage? Would you deport all Muslims? Would you be so kind to list the top 10 things you’d change by law in America?
