The "Western" War On Syria Depends On Al-Qaeda - Attacker In Nice Followed Its Guidance

The attacker in Nice, who last night killed some 80+ people by driving a truck into a crowd, was likely incited by al-Qaeda. Inspire, al-Qaeda's magazine, called for such truck attacks in its Issue Number 2 (pdf).

Page 54 read:

Pick your location and timing carefully. Go for the most crowed locations. Narrower spots are also better because it gives less chance for the people to run away. Avoid locations where other vehicles may intercept you.

To achieve maximum carnage, you need to pick up as much speed as you can while still retaining good control of your vehicle in order to maximize your inertia and be able to strike as many people as possible in your first run. ...

The ideal location is a place where there are a maximum number of pedestrians and the least number of vehicles. In fact if you can get through to “pedestrian only” locations that exist in some downtown (city center) areas, that would be fabulous. There are some places that are closed down for vehicles at certain times due to the swarms of people.

The Promenade des Anglais, the seaside boulevard in Nice where the attack took place last night, was blocked for ordinary traffic to allow a large crowd of pedestrians to watch the Bastille Day fireworks. The place and occasion perfectly fit the al-Qaeda terror recommendations.

While Osama Bin Laden had at times cautioned about indiscriminate attacks, al-Qaeda has hardly refrained from such on other occasions. Currently the government held western part of Aleppo, filled with mostly Sunni refugees, is under daily indiscriminate fire by improvised artillery from al-Qaeda and "moderate-rebels" who hold parts of east-Aleppo.

The French government did not care or even favored when its citizens went to Syria to overthrow the legitimate Syrian government by means of terrorism:

"The fighters in Syria are not fighting France or Europe; they are fighting against the Assad regime," Valls [,the French interior minister,] said.

Now these fighters and their ideology are coming back to France.

The Syrian president Assad had warned that terrorism committed against Syria would return to the "West" to bite:

"The West uses any element, even if it is against them elsewhere," Assad said. "They fight Al Qaeda in Mali and they support it in Syria and in Libya, but the West doesn't know — or perhaps it knows but is not now aware — that this terrorism will return to it and they will pay the price later in Europe and the United States."

Now the French president Hollande said he would reintroduce a state of emergency and call up troops to patrol the street. But both measures have been in place for the last months and obviously could not prevent such an attack. Hollande also vowed to intensify attacks on the Islamic State. But it is France' and its allies' support for "moderate rebels" in Syria what keeps al-Qaeda in Syria and the Islamic State alive.

The United States, like France, does not fight al-Qaeda in Syria. Weapons it provides to "moderate rebels" in Syria are used in coordinated attacks with al-Qaeda against the Syrian government. Indeed its proxy war for "regime change" against Syria depends on al-Qaeda storm troopers:

Up to now, the United States has carried out occasional strikes against what have been described as senior Qaeda figures in Syria. But it has refrained from systematic attacks against the Nusra Front, whose ranks are heavily Syrian, including many who left less extreme rebel groups because Nusra was better armed and financed. Faysal Itani, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council, was also critical of the proposed military coordination with the Russians. He said that combined attacks against Nusra would effectively end the Syrian opposition, cementing Mr. Assad’s grip on power and enraging most Syrians.

As long as France, the U.S. and their allies in the Middle East support "rebels" in Syria to achieve a change of government by force the terrorism committed in Syria by al-Queda, its affiliates like Ahrar al Sham or by the Islamic State, will come back to strike in their own countries.

We can expect more attacks like in Paris, Brussels, Orlando and Nice until sanity regains some space in the brains of "western" governments.

Sadly that won't be any time soon. The western answer is always more war and less rights for the citizens.

The driver plowed through a roughly 2 km long route before he was finally put down. That's a long drive.

Downtown?
Nope. Sorry, not buying it. No-one in Oz, or anywhere else outside AmeriKKKa calls the central city "downtown" whereas "fabulous" reeks of British-ness.

The CIA has bragged about inventing al-CIA-duh to spoil Russia's Afghanistan mission. What's wrong with assuming that ISIS was invented by CIA + MI6 + Mossad until it's formally denied by them (and thus confirmed)?

My two cents: something smells. Too many holes in the story, which may, in fact, mean it might be true. I'm betting this was a quasi-'False Flag.' It is known that the alleged perps work for the US and its minions ... so why not? 9/11 with a European cast of characters? Works, sadly, for me.

To bring down these "terrorist" (mercenary) groups requires a PR campaign. Ridicule-them-to-death. If every citizen on the face of the earth did something, anything, by getting creative and mocking these mass murders and making peace the righteous way, they would shrink away in shame. 7 billion on the planet can shut-them-down! We can use this same tool against the true terrorists who have sat themselves on a throne that is in truth, a toilet. PR rules.

Sputniknews.com had an article that was so creative. The good side had stationed itself in a position and blasted Bollywood to determine where they were lurking. Of course they knew they would come running when aggravated with their pet-peeve and presto, taken down! Bollywood became a tool and whoever thought it up is a genius. The picture on the article was of bollywood dancers. What if a game like the current pokeman was deployed to make fun of them while being fun? Defense doesn't need to be weapons. Words are the most effective weapons-of-all. There are so many tools.

@3 nevermind

Two kliks isn't a "long drive". Once that big-ass truck entered what was a temporary pedestrian zone it could do that distance in a couple of minutes. And what's there to stop it? Obviously there was security as its windshield was peppered with bullet holes. As one of the talking heads noted, a lot of bullets will ricochet unless they strike a windshield at ninety degrees. That's unlikely with the shooters on the ground shooting up at the cab.

Unless authorities are willing to put in place cement barricades on every promenade in every city every time there's a celebration they remain vulnerable. There's a reason IS has used truck bombs to spearhead attacks in Iraq and Syria. They are difficult to stop with anything short of anti-tank weapons.

The British sold fake bomb detectors to Iraq, Egypt, and other countries.

It makes it easier to pull off false flag attacks within Iraq and set off the two sides against each other.

I'm w Hoarsewhisperer, "Inspire" is obviously a western "guide". The entire bogus framework of ISIS(and its predecessor, Al Qaida) is mercenary in nature, and every incidence of violence literally always traceable to a western interest or meddling.

We are at a point where I think it's time to admit that we have a problem not with "Islamists" or even "blowback", but of individual and personal insanity and desperation. Continually trying to ascribe personal insanity to a greater cultural or even criminal plot is perhaps the most mendacious contruct in the history of man. What we have are individuals who have been pushed past their breaking point by the forces of globalization, which by definition are the forces of inequality. And it's those forces who are telling us the "story".

Not surprising, Les, since the initial "sectarian" violence in Iraq post invasion, most notably the Golden Mosque bombing, had the hallmarks of military operations. Stoke, stoke stoke. Set the stage with props, etc. Get people mad, confused, and murderously vengeful.

I wish I could understand the actual logistics of these terrorist nomadic raids. Both Putin and Assad have said in apparent full sincerity that terrorists are a bad tool to use because they come back to bite you. In a level playing field I would simply accept this, and look to watch the mechanisms by which the biting migrates back to the original sponsor.

But then there's Gladio. It's an old and still unsolved riddle: are your mercenary soldiers really out of control or are they doing exactly what you want them to? And how many fighters are ideologically motivated and somewhat autonomous, and how many have gone rogue beyond your reach anymore?

How best can the observer understand the true degree of control and intent? The deep layers of propaganda narrative - generations thick by now - must surely make it probable that even controllers at certain levels are themselves deceived completely, and don't understand the true game their superiors on the ladder are playing. And then the inverse of course, deception from the bottom upward, when cliques change alliance or cadres go rogue.

Certainly, the thick web of lies makes it almost impossible for outside observers to discern the real movements behind occurrences. All that's left is the question of who benefits. Useful, but hardly a sharp analytical tool.

How to clarify this view?

Start here: The Redirection (2007):

To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East.... A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.

... clandestine operations have been kept secret, in some cases, by leaving the execution or the funding to the Saudis, or by finding other ways to work around the normal congressional appropriations process ...

... The policy shift has brought Saudi Arabia and Israel into a new strategic embrace, largely because both countries see Iran as an existential threat.
...
Nasr compared the current situation to the period in which Al Qaeda first emerged... This time, the U.S. government consultant told me, Bandar and other Saudis have assured the White House that “they will keep a very close eye on the religious fundamentalists. Their message to us was ‘We’ve created this movement, and we can control it.’/i>

Were the fake guns and grenades props for Bastille Day celebration or was the guy set up in a sting operation thinking he was heavily armed? Maybe he ran out of live weapons and decided to continue with the attack by using the truck. The pistol and the gun he had were both his own. He had previously been arrested in a traffic altercation where he had the pistol.

Posted by: Les | Jul 15, 2016 11:59:44 AM | 18

The "fake guns and grenades" angle will be soundly ignored, or used to ridicule the baddy, at most. It's very intriguing. Initial reports said there were accomplices who "ran away".

These things are beginning to look more and more like team operations where one pasty, not "in the know", is abandoned mid-operation and left to die with all of the blame. "ISIS", or BLM, or whatever stokes the local fires the most or advances empire's agenda.

When I first heard the reports of this truck it was reportedly doing 100mph and zig-zagging to get as many people as possible. After watching a large proportion of the video footage I find that most of it is just people running away. The only footage of the truck that I have seen shows it moving at about 20mph, max 30mph, which leads me to believe that what we are being told is not true - a truck going at that speed, with shouts and screams from those immediately in front of it would surely cause people to get onto the sidewalk(which is tree-lined and therefore offer protection from getting run over) yet we see pictures of people running along the road??? How difficult would it be to have actors ready to lay down in the road after the truck has passed when most non-actors are running away and not looking back? The clincher? Oh yeah he left his ID in the cab!!! He also had an 'arsenal' of weapons in the back of the truck - why on earth would he? This, to my mind is another false-flag folks and is non-bloody Hollywood action - tiresome!

Right, a couple of minutes is a long drive when you're plowing through a crowded street, supposedly restricted from normal traffic with police stationed at every crossroad to and from. Truck riddled with bullets 2km after the fact does not make a job well done. Why were the necessary barriers not put in place?

Extremely interesting post, especially in view of a report that this Tunisian prick was a delivery driver who was parking along the Promenade hours before the event started. He was queried by the cops and told them he was delivering ice cream and waiting for a call from the business.

The report did not say, but now it seems likely he was parked inside the area that was eventually closed to vehicular traffic. Did he sit there until 10:30pm? Are the bad guys really this much smarter than the cops? If so, we're all cooked.

The west is now faced with the consequences of its arrogance and simplistic knowlege of the middle east of the 21 century. It is stuck in the 50s where it could impose regime change to disobedient countries.
For 5 years these leaders have tried their new methods of regime change, using mercenaries paid by rich and frustrated allies. They were blinded by the self assurance that they know better what is good for a third word country
The sadness is that naive citizens are paying the price of these leaders decision while these criminals are protected.

Hollande and the French Gvmt. are caught in a trap - under the kindest, most benevolent, view.

On the one hand, they should be protective of F citizens (not doing it properly), and on the other, they are under threat from the EU: not enough anti-labor, neo-lib submission, etc. (see Greece.)

Juncker said re. the el-Khomri ( => an instrumentalised diversity appointment twit) proposed labor law, that the F ppl are protesting with vigor, was the least that could be done, and indeed it was drafted to create confusion and thus indirectly to end in an unresolved mess.

US pressure insists on Assad must go / Sanctions on Russia must continue/ NATO must ‘defend’ the Baltics, Poland, Romania etc. Recently Hollande, Renzi and Steinmeier have spoken up against demonising Russia and put a timid foot forward. Hopefully, the beginning of some resistance, difficult to be optimistic though.

Hollande cannot find any way forward. He is an ass, stupid as a rock, lame, a despised figure. Sarkozy, Juppé, Marine le Pen, Mélenchon, who may seem more appealing, as not in the hot seat (all are better than Hollande though all on their personal power trip), struggle, spouting lies and smarmy input to try to fool ppl that they have some serious proposals.

Terrorist attacks in F will continue until F makes changes in its foreign policy (can’t be done, it is a US vassal, via an EU domination, thus dependent on a fake alliance with Germany, etc.) and of course just like after 9/11 you get the ‘patriot acts,’ ‘emergency legislation’ , ‘random imprisonment’ etc. which are completely useless and only serve to control and intimidate ppl.

In the undemocratic West, terr0r victims are collateral damage of the decision to support allies that use extremists as a weapon, not unintended/unforeseen 'blowback'. Bonus: each attack cements control by TPTB.

Guy was allegedly from Tunisia - did he ever go to Syria? Based on reports of his marital situation and psychological issues, I suspect "jihad" was just a cover for his personal problems, much like the Orlando, Florida guy.

"Jihad" for these guys is just a way of saying, "I'm mad as hell, and I'm not going to take it any more."

The real issue is how fast the government jumps on these random incidents to justify further military intervention in the Middle East.

As James Corbett notes in a Youtube video today, a few days ago Hollande was saying the emergency state had to be lifted because otherwise France was a nation without rule of law. Now COINCIDENTALLY we have a random nut going off - and now Hollande extends the emergency degree for another three months...

Coincidence? I think not... Whether this was orchestrated or not, it is clear Hollande fully intended to keep the decree in place.

Past French positions on terrorism, as UK ones, are hypocritical, first we had Cameron’s “moderate” terrorists, and then former French Foreign affairs Minister Laurent Fabius praising Al Nusra. “Relations of victims of jihadist groups in Syria took the French government to court on Monday, accusing Foreign Affairs Minister Laurent Fabius of encouraging violence in their country by praising the al-Qaida affiliate, the al-Nusra Front.
The case went to a Paris appeal court on Monday, a lower court having declared itself incompetent to hear it because it concerned France’s foreign policy.
The plaintiffs, all Syrians, claim that several statements by Fabius stoked the Syrian conflict in 2012.
Among them was a declaration, made during a visit to a refugee camp in August, that “Bashar al-Assad doesn’t deserve to be on this earth.”
They also cite a quotation in Le Monde newspaper when Fabius reported that the Syrian opposition coalition and “all the Arabs” opposed the US decision to put al-Nusra on its terrorist list because “they are doing a good job on the ground”.http://en.rfi.fr/france/20150907-syrians-take-french-fm-fabius-court-encouraging-al-nusra

When France, US and UK decided to R2P Libya, al-CIA-duh's Airforce (NATO), conducted 21,000 sorties on Libyans and I didn't hear a peep out of the West's MSM Reptiles. If someone had conducted 21,000 ter'rist sorties in France in 2011, the French wouldn't be halfway through whining and wringing their hands in the aftermath. And the French would BE refugees - not just whining about MENA refugees for which France & its Judeo-Christian Friends are directly responsible; but NOT, apparently, accountable.

L Bean@19 - "...These things are beginning to look more and more like team operations where one pasty, not "in the know", is abandoned mid-operation and left to die with all of the blame..."

They're not abandoned mid-operation, L Bean. When the CIA was studying the effects of scopolamine in the 50's as a potential truth serum, they discovered that it was much more useful as a control tool. A victim could be convinced to do outrageous things as if hypnotized, yet appear perfectly normal to the casual observer. It was nearly impossible to determine the 'right' dose however. Too little and the effects wore off quickly and the victim went to sleep. Too much and their heart stopped.

When the CIA supplied al Qaeda and eventually ISIS with the drug, it was to convince people to be suicide bombers on the spot and carry out the operation. They would pick a patsy, administer a puff of scopolamine hydrochloride dust and (if the victim survived) convince them to carry out the attack. You could suppress their own desire for self-preservation or reluctance to kill by verbally coaching them continuously before the attack. The only trick was to keep talking to them. If left to think about things too much themselves, they would revert to their normal moral compass and refuse.

Sound crazy? Hookers in Columbia have been using readily-available scopolamine (made from the seed of a common indigenous tree) to drug their marks, convince them to clean out their ATM accounts and then return to their apartments with the hooker/accomplices and clean the entire thing out - often under the noses of the doormen or guards who would later say that everything seemed normal about the resident and 'movers' to them. The victim does not appear drugged or zombie-like. They act perfectly normal as far as others are concerned.

Scopolamine also prevents the formation of short-term memories. The Colombian victims have absolutely no recollection of what happened the next day and don't even remember being drugged. This is a notoriously well-known date-rape drug in South America.

Mossad and the CIA love scopolamine. It's the perfect Patsy in a Can. The only twist is that it needs to be administered to the patsy within an hour of when they're suppose to do something, and then they must be coached into doing it continuously up until the point of attack. The victim's survival and moral apprehensions are far weaker than normal, but the appropriately sympathetic individual can be convinced fairly easily. Head-chopper looking for his 72 virgins? Suicide vests and car bombs are made for them.

There's some weird social aspect to controlling the victim. Shared-struggle and part-of -a-team-seem to be common elements. It's not that lone-wolf type attacks are not possible, but the whole scopolamine false flag seems to be (lately) a team effort. I guess it's easier to convince someone to shoot up a nightclub if they think they're doing it with a couple of their buddies. Their 'buddies' job is to coach them until the time of the attack and make sure they get inside the club or other target. At which point, the 'buddies' seem to run off and escape identification or capture. The scopo'ed patsy will lose steam in fifteen or twenty minutes and the situation evolves into a standoff/hostage situation. Law enforcement (whether willingly or via outside influence) MUST kill the victim. I don't think they can detect scopolamine easily or at all.

Where's Penelope? She should be all over this.

Victim 'patsy' is always a bit radicalized with few social connections. Nobody that will be missed much. There's always some vague suggestions of association with like-minded individuals, but never anything like 'best buddies' or 'headchopper fanboy club'. The police can never find the mystery accomplices because they are not (and don't need to be) anyone particularly close to the victim. Since they bail out before the carnage starts, they are rarely caught and wouldn't have any evidence linking them directly to the plot anyway.

Sopolamized victims start getting sleepy in a few hours and pass out. Notice how the SWAT guys give them a few hours before they heroically rush in and shoot (or remote bomb) them? The cops always insist that they had to end the standoff to save lives, but the patsy was probably snoring so loud that they were forced to act.

Yeah, it's nutty conspiracy theory. But who would have thought the CIA and MI6 would publish Inspire magazine to make their fake terrorists seem scary - that's nutty too. And these 'terrorist' attacks match closely with the way the CIA used this in South America and Mossad used this in Lebanon that you think someone would at least ask. There should be scopolamine residue on the patsy's skin, hair or clothing.

Posted by: PavewayIV | Jul 15, 2016 3:26:37 PM | 40

#4 and #9
I agree the quoted paragraph from Inspire reads much as it was written by an English speaking person. i.e. a classic example of psy-op literature.

The ISIS atrocity videos starting two years ago also reeked of a covert psychological program. That they would be allegedly plucked from cyberspace by an Israeli linked intelligence operation and then widely publicized in the western MSM strongly suggested a complicit strategy of both fear-mongering and egging on potential discontents. Considering, at the time, ISIS was being branded the most fearsome threat to humankind ever, the consistent wide publicizing of the enemy's propaganda was not a tactic previously known. This war on terror is directed at the populations of western countries too.

L Bean

We are at a point where I think it's time to admit that we have a problem not with "Islamists" or even "blowback", but of individual and personal insanity and desperation. Continually trying to ascribe personal insanity to a greater cultural or even criminal plot is perhaps the most mendacious contruct in the history of man. What we have are individuals who have been pushed past their breaking point by the forces of globalization, which by definition are the forces of inequality. And it's those forces who are telling us the "story".

Right on, so tiresome to hear the rhetoric once again "oh now we going to punish these evil muslims bastard terrorists!" ...enough already, these people dont do this because they are muslims or whatever, they do it because they have mental issues.

Truck attacks are good for killing people, but terrorism isn't killing the max number of people, it's psychological warfare. I don't think people are as frightened by the prospect of mad truckers, hundreds die daily from auto accidents and no one gets too upset.

It reeks. An unmarked "icecream" truck without a refrigeration unit and what looks to be pretty low grade insulation is parked up for 9 hours, the cops question him and leave him there inside a barrier. A heavy vehicle driver has to keep a logbook and has limited working hours. A rental is surely GPS'd. And then his apartment "trashed" no police tape, a discarded forensic glove and computer just sitting there, no apparent basic policing discipline. It seems that they already know everything they need to know about this guy (and so do we, via the press, and that he reads inspire magazine all the way back to issue 2 dated 2010). All happening during a martial law (or whatever) imposed to keep people safe that was due to expire in a day. .... but what do I know? I'm

Posted by: james | Jul 15, 2016 6:41:29 PM | 50

No, b, you're off-base. There is no evidence the mass murderer is a terrorist. We assume he is a terrorist because of his Arab name, and because the French state is heavily pushing that narrative for its own reasons. An al Qaeda publication from 2010 (!) is not evidence. Ask yourself, if this guy were radical Islam motivated, why has no evidence for that been found? Wouldn't he and 'they' want 'us' to know? We have many many mass killings in the US and most have other causes than 'terrorism'.

Posted by: fairleft | Jul 15, 2016 6:49:30 PM | 51

I agree with fairleft's position here; this was almost certainly just a mass murder by a deranged individual. On the previous article, I posted:

/~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Regarding the horrible murder of 84 people on Bastille Day (yesterday at around 11.00pm local time) along Nice's beachfront, I just posted the following at ZeroHedge:

{QUOTE} Tunisia is the only democracy in the Arab World.[15] It has a high human development index.[13] It has an association agreement with the European Union and is a member of La Francophonie, the Union for the Mediterranean, the Arab Maghreb Union, the Arab League, the OIC, the Greater Arab Free Trade Area, the Community of Sahel-Saharan States, the African Union, the Non-Aligned Movement, the Group of 77 and obtained the status of major non-NATO ally. In addition, Tunisia is also a state party [to] the principal world's institutions such as the United Nations or the International Criminal Court. Close relations with Europe – in particular with France[16] and with Italy[17][18] – have been forged through economic cooperation, privatisation and industrial modernization. {UNQUOTE} --
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunisia

Word is this guy had both French and Tunisian citizenship. He was presumably some individual with significant, but not the most obvious, violent criminal tendencies. He probably was a severely sociopathic minor criminal who developed some additional issues.

It is important to pay attention to the facts, since this could happen in other contexts. It's an awful tragedy.

(Syria is arguably also an Arab democracy. Or at least as democratic as the great U.S.)

I got to that point by putting together various clues.

A lot of people will probably let it "play out" as a terrorist attack, even if it's simply a mass murder.

Sums it up for me.

CIA/M16 op? yup.
out of control or ... doing exactly what you want them to? yup
mass murder by a deranged individual? yup

Obama and droogies, the CIA/M16, are all well pleased. See no changes in the cards.

changes in foreign policy cannot be made? Must be!

@ jfl commented: "Obviously, all the present 'powers' must be removed."

You and who's nukes?

That is the problem here. The US empire is in control of the world money supply and all the international banks process stuff is controlled/done/highly manipulated by private finance. Until and unless the stranglehold of private finance is removed from society we will continue to live with the world it engenders. The only hope I see in my life time is China and I think the seed will be planted in September of this year when China hosts the G20........

In b's Atmospheric Changes in Syria post, just above the 'continue reading' fold was this observation:

"The French president Holland has finally recognized al-Qaeda as an important enemy in Syria that should be fought."

There are too many coincidences in the escalating bastardry of "Israel" & AmeriKKKa's Fake War on Terror. Hollande's apparent change of heart was immediately followed by a "Nice" event.

When the Brits announced in 2005 that they were pulling out of Iraq (or was it Afpak?), I had a little bet with myself that the Brits would be punished for their recalcitrance and the 7/7 London Bombings took place shortly thereafter.

In Iraq, where the Iraqi Govt appears to be triumphing over IsUS, despite US "help" Iraqis are being punished by massive and multiple car-bombings.

Yankees and "Israelis", joint sponsors of the Fake War on Terror, are as cowardly and vengeful as each other when thwarted by people less Racist-Supremacist than themselves - closely followed by Eurotrash ex-colonial powers. The one thing the leaders of these Colonial Throwbacks have in common is an overt hatred of people who don't do, or think, what Racist-Supremacist, Judeo-Christian Leaders tell them to do or think - including their own citizens.

And that's what's been happening since 9/11, and why.
Coalition Of The Willing, my arse. Coalition of the Bullied, Bribed or Blackmailed is a more coherent explanation and makes a whole lot more sense.
There's also the unfortunate reality that most of the West's so-called Leaders are bored & boring, uncharismatic, eerily inept wankers, jerk-offs and puppets, who indulge in sensationalist claptrap as a feeble substitute for having something honest, optimistic, unifying or enlightening to say.

This n.2 of Inspire is dated 2010. To what one can understand from the news about the killer (Nice Matin newspaper) the profile of the killer has nothing to do with the typical profile of an Islamist terrorist. To what his father – living in Tunisia – declared to the press, his son - the killer - was afflicted with a very serious psychiatric illness, as a psychiatrist said to him when he brought his son when he was a child to be examined by this doctor.
The killer was also a very scarce Muslim, as he even skipped Ramadan.
His profile has nothing to do with a typical Islamist terrorist profile.
Suggestions in the Inspire magazine are trivial, there is no need to read it in order to conceive such an act.
In the meanwhile French newspapers are starting to refrain using the word “terrorism” and “attentat” (attack) in his titles.
This story is rather very similar to the Germanwings copilot suicide in march 2015, who made more killed than in Nice. Was the copilot “inspired” by the 9/11?
Both considerations doesn't make any sense.

harrylaw @ 34, yes. Basically, the F support (though admittedly that might not be perceptible to ppl not much interested in geo-politics and only watching TF1 news) islamist fighters and recruits in Syria, but wring their hands and clutch pearls about muslim ‘terrorists’, ‘radicals’, ‘indoctrination’, ‘networks’, and on and on.. (This Nice truck-driver has all the appearance of a lone-nut mass-killer. 1.)

The public, official, discourse on these matters is utterly confused and terminally, evidently hypocritical, it makes zero sense — which encourages dislocation and…more violence. It also appears to be a servile copy of US history/attitudes. (Hollande as poodle no. 1.)

Well, in the US today, we see a split: Clinton wants to destroy Syria and the Assad Gvmt, with IS mercenaries as proxies, plus US bombs and boots (I guess) whereas the Donald wants to fight an all-out war on IS and islamic ‘terrorism’ (or even ordinary muslims?) in whatever shape. How crazy does this get? If it wasn’t so serious it would be hilarious. France, however, is still stuck in its attempts at a ‘unity Gvmt who governs for all the ppl.’

1. Of course one never knows, but I think many readers here will not understand how bad police/security/etc. in France is. All the security apparatus is at the end of its rope - angry, overworked, underpaid, badly equipped (specially computer stuff which doesn’t work), given contradictory orders, e.g. ordered to stand off from ‘violent’ demos, e.g. against the ‘new’ labor law so that the public turns against demonstrators/Unions, some agitators are suspected imports allowed to ruckus, the MSM TV is right there to capture ugly pix, such as an attack on a famous and respected children's hospital. (Necker.)

The army is also stretched thin and are furious - having a fully trained / equipped soldiers standing in front of a Kosher Store or Museum in Paris is completely crazy. Madness. It is mismanagement at every level, and it comes right from the top political apparatus. The police, both corps (Gendarmerie and Police Nationale), the Army, the judiciary (who rebelled and went on strike under Sark, and hoped for better under Hollande) are all going nuts.

@58 Noirette
"some agitators are suspected imports allowed to ruckus, the MSM TV is right there to capture ugly pix,..."

"Les casseurs" are provocateurs who appear at EVERY march. More recently they've had the convenience of being able to easily disguise themselves as "Black Bloc". I've seen it for myself: Sitting in a car parked near the lycée in Fontainebleau, waiting to pick up my kids from school, after a march by lycéens, I watched as a group of laughing men in their late 20s-early 30s who would have fit in in St-Denis but were totally out of place in bourgeois Fontainebleau got into cars and drove away. Only afterward did I learn that store windows had been broken during the march. I am 100% certain it was they and that it amounts to a fairly steady extra job for a certain category of young men. I've seen it happen every time a student or labor movement (and especially if the two ally) becomes a threat. The window-breakers are shown on the evening news and the majority of the population shake their heads and go back to eating.

Took some time to gather. Dead thread! Maybe some will find interest anyway. France.

Unclear when the call for ‘car, truck’ arms took place on djihadists websites, re. b’s link which is from 2010 (? date at top of link.) (Btw, the first time I posted a djihadist link I was dissed, ha ha..)

There were two vehicle attacks in France previous to Nice-trucker. Right after a new video calling for attacks from IS (can’t link it properly dated, sorry, ..)

1) 21 dec. 2014. A man mowed down 13 pedestrians in Dijon shouting Allah Akbar. (No deaths but very severe injuries.) Aged 40, of Moroccan-Algerian origin, had been during his life hospitalized in psychiatric units *157* times. This may sound totally bizarre, or a typo, but believe me, it is a regular pattern for severe schizophrenics in France. In and out. 3 days of stabilization…

2) 22 dec., the next day, in Nantes, at the Xmas market. (Yeah symbolism.) A smallish truck ran in and squashed down 10 ppl, killing one. The driver was 37, Francais ‘de souche’ (true ’n blue - no foreign ties, origins, links to djihadism, etc.) He subsequently tried to stab himself to death with a knife but was saved by ppl around him. He committed suicide in prison.

No links, no time to dig up these events which were basically repressed by the MSM / Judiciary. They were classed as ‘nutters.’

Contrary to other ‘attacks’ that make the ‘terrorist list’ but aren’t really. Link, this was an ordinary work-place dispute that was hyped, lied about, elevated in status as Islamist terror, with all kinds of fanciful rubbish. — Because the boss had been decapitated, the worker was ‘muslim.’
