Another terror event in France resulting in a dramatic and tragic loss of life.
On Bastille Day: 14th of July, the day commemorating the French Revolution of 1789, the most important French National Holiday. This time in Nice, killing at least 84 people, many children – and leaving scores injured.
During last night’s celebration of the French National Holiday, around 11 PM, a speeding truck plowed into a crowd of thousands who were watching the fireworks along the Mediterranean Boulevard Anglais. The driver of the truck, was simultaneously and indiscriminately shooting into the crowd. He was able to run for 2 kilometers before being stopped by police, which instantly shot and killed him.
A horrendous terror attack, killing hordes of people, spreading pain, misery, fear and outrage in France, Europe – the world over.All indications signal the Big Script of yet another false flag; yet again in France.
The young truck-driver was identified as a 31-year-old Frenchman, resident of Nizza, with Tunisian origins. As in previous cases, ‘coincidence’ has it that his identity papers were found in the truck.

The young man is instantly killed by the police. Dead people cannot talk. A pattern well known by now.
The man’s Tunisian roots may soon pin him to a terrorist Jihad group – if not de jure, then de facto, as the propaganda machine will spread the news and instill yet more Muslim hatred among the western population.
The Islamic State
Media reports suggest that the Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the terror attack. France is identified as “Enemy Number One of the Islamic State (Daech)”
ISIS based in Northern Syria is financed and supported by America’s closest allies: Turkey and Saudi Arabia, as confirmed by a recent British Parliamentary report. It also has links to US intelligence.

It is not clear how the truck was able to breach the barriers to the promenade closed for pedestrians and spectators during the 14th of July celebration.
According to eye-witnesses, it took the police and firemen about half an hour to get to the scene.
Martial Law: The Broader Implications
How is it possible that such a crowd is not ‘protected’ by patrolling police and military? And that in a country under effective Martial Law?
President Hollande spoke to the nation in an emotionless tone, reading what he was to say. None of his words sounded heartfelt. He spoke as if the terror event came as no news to him. His speech was concentrating on declaring a three-month extension of the ‘State of Emergency’ – effectively Martial Law – which was in place since the last November Bataclan Paris attacks and was to expire on 26 July 2016.
Daily Telegraph headline
Despite this Martial Law, a celebration of this magnitude, unique each year for France – where millions of people are in the streets and celebrating, strangely no police or military protection was present.
Hollande spoke of a terrorist event. His Minister of the Interior, Bernard Cazeneuve, called the truck driver a ‘terrorist’.
While causes of this tragic event are unclear, President Hollande will eventually achieve his objective: being the first country in Europe with permanent Martial Law.
He has already declared to extend the current State of Emergency for another three months, when it expires on 26 July. Such a temporary extension is in his power. He will have plenty of time to force it through Parliament – thereby prompting other EU countries to do likewise.
Martial Law: The Geopolitical Dimensions
Why France? – Naturally, Hollande follows Washington’s orders. He is the most spineless puppet in Europe, making France the foremost EU vassal of America. And that in a post-Brexit ambiance, where according to several polls 70% – 80% of the French people are anti-EU and would vote for a Frexit, if they were given the chance to vote. This is a considerable increase since the Brexit referendum.
Washington needs a militarized Europe to be controlled by force, to impose its corporate financial rule, to push the TTIP down the throat of the Europeans, to make Europe the new and effective low-cost high-tech colony of the empire, and an unfailing buffer zone to Russia;
Cold War all over again. This time not so cold any more. WWIII is an imminent possibility, thanks to the EU vassals in Brussels giving NATO free reign to advance ruthlessly towards Moscow.
Surely, before long some Islamic ‘terror group’ will claim credit for the horror event. The usual. Let there be no doubt, as to who are the enemies of humanity – of ‘Western Humanity’ – the superior people, that is.
In the coming weeks it will be a piece of cake to slide this ‘law’ through the French Parliament as a permanent fixture in the French Constitution. That’s what Washington wants. That’s what Washington will get, thereby not only inciting but forcing other European nations to do likewise, putting their citizenry under military power.
How long will it take until We, the People, wake up and see the light?
