Terrorist attacks bring out the strangest behaviors and thoughts. Some years back, America was attacked by some few savages from Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Those “men” passed through Germany and England, settling in America. All the while they received financial backing and material support from all the aforementioned nations. So, in response, the United States attacked Afghanistan and then Iraq.

Similar nonsense (minus the war drive) is unfolding following the Parliament attack yesterday. People seem astounded that any terrorist, any person really, can easily Google how to use a car as a weapon of mass destruction.

Guides to mounting a car terror attack were available on Google and Twitter last night.
The vile manuals were online despite widespread warnings that UK jihadists use them for training.

Fanatics are urged to deploy large vehicles as ‘tools of war’ before going on a stabbing rampage – the template for Wednesday’s atrocity in Westminster. Boris Johnson accused social media websites of inciting terrorism.

And Google’s YouTube video platform was found to be raking in money from conspiracy theories saying the London outrage was a hoax.

I cannot be the only man on Earth not surprised by this – the attack that is. ISIS has been telling its followers to perform car and knife (and whatever other weapon is handy) attacks for years. And they’ve been doing it. Ohio State anyone? Nice? Christmas Market?

The belated reaction to the existence of these manuals is surprising.

Don’t Do This! Daily Mail.

And who needs a manual to understand the principle anyhow? It’s a simple strategy: 1) Put the car on the sidewalk, where the people are; 2) press the accelerator. Confused old people have done it for years.

Becoming indignant about the cars and trucks is like blaming the guns after someone is shot. Tools are tools are tools. Almost any object can be weaponized. The more powerful it is, the more damage it can do.

What’s the solution? Ban cars? Trucks? Kitchen knives? That’s certainly what the hoplophobes propose for guns. *Note: it was a gun that stopped the rampage yesterday, BTW.*

The problem isn’t cars and knives and guns in Europe. Nor trucks, trains, airplanes, baseball bats, billy clubs, bricks, gasoline, or any other potential weapon. The problem is the (almost typed a curse word here) terrorists!

Objects + Terrorists = Civilization Open to Attack.

Civilization – Terrorists = Civilization with Objects.

Only a federal judge or the average SJW idiot could find this hard to understand.

Dammit!
