Horrific Truck Attack Displays a Terrorist’s Intensity

The horrendous Bastille Day attack by a truck in Nice, France, illustrates how hard it can be to anticipate and stop a terrorist bent on challenging the norms of life or, by extension, security systems.

Security precautions actually didn’t figure in the Nice slaughter. But when a terrorist truck driver can plow through a mile-long column of people, killing and injuring with abandon, we get an anguished sense of how perversely motivated such an attacker can be – and why it’s wise to take whatever security precautions are available for a given sensitive site – barriers or fencing, for example.
