Damn. Undecided They stole a fucking beer truck and used it as a weapon.

Is there nothing sacred, anymore?

Good visuals here from the BBC. It looks like they are still in the early stages of dealing with it.

Most of the world is still quite safe. The essence of terrorism is that these kind of things will be blown out of proportion. That's a win for them.

Even more so since you can't possibly prevent something like that from happening. Someone stealing a car to use it as a weapon? All the security measures anyone can imagine in their wildest dreams can't do anything about something like that.

Security has only ever been a deterent as countless airline hijackings demonstrate.

Yes, absolutely. If it weren't for the media coverage this would be a nothing "strategically" speaking.

3 people (of no military or strategic importance) died. You are much more likely to die in your car on the way to work than be killed by these terrorists. The terror far outweighs the risk.

I completely agree: take it from me, a professional worrier (aka a mom)

I keep telling people that I'm much more worried about my loved ones being the victim of a random car crash caused by an elderly driver having a heart attack: exact same outcome, much more likely, but doesn't even make the evening news.
