“France … has been hit hardest among European countries by Islamic State-inspired terrorism,” we are told by a Bloomberg correspondent.
French tourism is overdue for a slump, given the consistent treachery of the French government and its gendarmes. While the French Riviera, certainly Nice, is not as deserted as it should be; “[I]nternational flight bookings to Nice dropped 57 percent compared with the previous year from the date of the attack to July 23, while planned arrivals this month and in September were down by about a fifth for France as a whole.”
Here are a few revelations about the Bastille Day massacre in Nice not shared in my column, “The Expert Idiocracy Is More Dangerous Than Islam. Almost”:
After Nice there was but one expert who did not obfuscate, and was aware of his limited, crucial mandate as a security expert. Late at night, on CNN, Israeli security expert Aaron Cohen was clear and concise about what the American and English media were incapable of discerning, because they always absolve the state of responsibility for its only duty: Protect the citizenry.
Nice is already a breeding ground for extremism. Why not? Muslims have the run of Europe, so why not settle in the French Riviera? French police know Nice is how teaming with terrorists. Therefore they had Cohen’s contempt for erecting easily breached police checkpoints, from where the gendarmes casually waved the enormous truck by when its swarthy driver, Tunisian-born Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel, told police he was delivering ice cream for the petits.
According to the UK Mirror, police allowed Nice killer Mohamed “to stay on the busy road for almost nine hours before the attack and failed to check his vehicle.” The pathetic, criminally culpable constabulary hadn’t even laid down spike strips or tire shredders. Anyone who watched the Frenchmen on scooters or foot, try to flag down the truck once it commenced its 2 mile mayhem, had to snort with contempt.
Tourism slump is sure to help reduce casualties from death by Muslim (and gendarme).
