Woke up this morning to find that yet another terrorist attack has hit Europe, this time in Nice, killing 84 people who were celebrating Bastille Day. No bombs or explosions this time, just a big truck speeding through the crowds on the promenade, running over as many people as possible until the French police were able to shoot the driver through the windscreen.
They’re changing their tactics, that’s for sure. The attack in Belgium showed them that bombs are not the best way to get the highest body count: you need serious firepower to kill large numbers of people, and I’m sure that explosives are getting harder and harder to come by. But a madman and a truck? That’s easy. And devastating.
Is this ever going to end? Are human beings ever going evolve to the point that they no longer try to find excuses to kill each other?
If you’re wondering how you can help, here’s a site that’s working on it. If you live in France, donating blood is crucial right now.
