Following fireworks display to conclude Bastille Day celebrations in Nice, France, an 18 wheeler crashed into hundreds of party goers – men, women and children.
So far death count has reached 84 with the injured in the dozens. The truck driver was killed in a hail of bullets from security personnel. Inside the truck was every weapon known to man including long guns, machine guns and hand grenades. Prosecutor’s office has taken over the investigation, the third or fourth large-scale terrorists’ planned mass killing in France in as many months. Again, the free world stands with its French brothers and sisters in Nice and all those throughout France. NATO, the UN, Ottawa, Washington , the White House and Number 10 Downing Street’s former resident traditionally wring their hands, appear on television, do the obligatory sound bite and do very little to take the fight to terrorists.
Free world nations need not send advisors into the fray, they must get their hands dirty……our men and women in uniform are trained on the ground, in the air and on the water to fill the breach and they must get at it ASAP. If the free world is serious about bringing this madness to an end….the time is now.
