islamic Terrorists strikes again in France, Nice, up to 60 dead hundreds wounded.

Here we go again, well at least here the French go again.

Truck drives through two to three miles of Bastille Day celebrations before exiting truck and shooting people.

Suspect is dead, shot by police.

I heard 60 from live Sky News reports.

BREAKING NEWS: At least 30 dead, 100 injured after truck smashes into Bastille Day crowd in Nice, France

Nice official: Probably 30 people killed when truck runs through crowd

Ban large trucks with Muslim drivers now, clearly they are dangerous!

Watching Sky News live right now. What a mess!

At least the French are not afraid to call Islamic terrorism, Islamic Terrorism!

Last reporter said the suspect was being watched by police, guess he wasn't being watched close enough.

Sad night for France on Bastille Day.

The people were leaving a fireworks show along the beach promenade.

Police were right there but not before lots of damage and death were done.

ETA: Death toll rises- more than 70 now

Many guns and hand-grenades found in truck.

I've got Sky News (http://news.sky.com/watch-live) and CNN both going. 73 dead so far according to multiple sources. Even though there was shooting from the truck, this is very encouraging news for any instant jihadi who can only get a hold of a truck. Just saw some video, that truck was hauling ass.

France: Truck Driver 'Came Out Shooting'
An eyewitness to the Nice attack has said he saw a truck driver slam a vehicle into a crowd of revellers and then emerge from the vehicle shooting.

Wassim Bouhlel said: "There was carnage on the road. Bodies everywhere."

Dozens of people are thought to have been killed around the city's Palais de la Mediterranee, a building that fronts the beach.

Eyewitnesses have described it as a deliberate attack, with a local official quoted as saying the driver travelled at high speed for more than 100 metres along the famed Promenade des Anglais seafront before hitting spectators.

Another witness told i-Tele: "We almost died. It was like hallucinating... (the lorry) zigzagged - you had no idea where it was going. My wife ... a metre away ... she was dead.

"The lorry ripped through everything ... poles, trees.

"We have never seen anything like it. Some people were hanging on the door and tried to stop it."

A reporter for the AFP news agency described seeing a white truck driving at high speed onto the famed Promenade des Anglais as people were celebrating the annual Bastille Day national holiday.

"We saw people hit and bits of debris flying around," he said, adding that the incident took place near the city's famed Hotel Negresco.

Terrified people screamed as they fled the area. "It was absolute chaos," he said.

Witness Tony Molina watched the chaos unfold from his hotel room on the promenade.

He told CNN: "There was still a crowd of people and then you just see this big white panel truck, I couldn't see the driver, but it just kept going at different angles from left to right at 25 to 30 miles and hour.

"People were screaming and running. There are still people I am looking at right now that are near their deceased family members.

"I work in homicide and I've never seen anything like this. It's unbelievable."

Sylvie Toffin, a local authority press officer, said the lorry "hit several people on a long trip" down the pavement.

Ms Toffin said that "to my knowledge" there was no gunfire and that the incident was deliberate.

"It's an attack," she said, adding she did not have casualty figures.

Another journalist at the scene said: "People are running. It's panic. The lorry mounted the Prom - he drove over everyone.

"Everyone is bleeding - there are loads of people injured, without doubt."

One woman told France Info she and others had fled in terror.

"The lorry came zig-zagging along the street," she said.

"We ran into a hotel and hid in the toilets with lots of people."

Another woman told the station she was sheltering in a restaurant on the promenade with some 200 other people, where things had calmed down about two hours after the incident.

I really hope to see the French take an extreme hard stance after this. Time to crack down on liberal rules and open borders.

-Mass deportations
-Immediate firings and revocation of CDLs
-Frexit (Like Brexit only French)
-Mass arrest of any and all current suspected terrorists in country

It's a horrible thing to say but, unlike the Bataclan attack, the bodies are strewn along the road for all to see. If this doesn't spur a popular uprising nothing will. My guess is nothing will, though.

Time will tell what the French will do, this is the same French government that is alleged to have covered up the torture (Eye removal, disembowment, testicles cut off) of Bataclan victims.

The French Army is going to need a bigger rifle!

The FAMAS Battle Rifle (5.56 NATO) is incapable of stopping Lorries (trucks).

Martial Law will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.

Time to carry "Rocket Launchers" by the Defence Forces.

Now, they have yet to say who did this...but, don't be confused if I jump to conclusions. Jumping!

This is Bastille Day (French Independence Day) so the likelihood of "Right-Wing" extremists carrying this out is slim to none.

The driver is said to be yelling God is Great, God is Great....translation: Allah Akbar!

An ISIS (ISIL for POTUS) has claimed responsibility (unconfirmed) for this attack and this follows recent propaganda to use cars, trucks and knives if you can't get guns and bombs to kill infidels.

I'm actually surprised that it has taken this long for such a style of attack to take place. One of the early editions of "Inspire" called for these types of attacks and It was also repeated in "Dabiq". Unfortunately, this would be an extremely easy attack method here in the United States.

It could certainly serve as an example for others to use here that never felt led to use other methods.

Saw a *******r that has mini ak sbr w folding stock as an everyday carry. He posted clips of very effective hits to 150m w red dot during carbine class. Perhaps it's not so farfetched/paranoid after all.

Not saying 7.62 can stop truck, but 3 to 10 well placed rounds through the driver windshield should distract the perp...Hopefully permanently
