“We attacked a foreign people and treated them like rebels. As you know, it's all right to treat barbarians barbarically. It's the desire to be barbaric that makes governments call their enemies barbarians.” — Bertolt Brecht

The 'war on terror' (i.e, state terrorism) goes on.
Now it's almost draw*. Nice attack will definitely be the last attack in France and in the West in general.

*The French pilots are not using smart enough weapons to kill only 84 civilians. 

Obviously, you do not have to be with ISIS or a similar organization to carry out such attacks**. Personally, I have grievances and been angry since 1991. Life in a Western country has made me more radical. 

**According to what we know about the Orlando and Nice attacks that the perpetrators did not have a record of being Islamic activists. 

Update: no word on the bbc yet.
