Brian Jenkins: Terrorists can use cars, trucks and vans to kill their targets. What’s the best way to keep people safe?

The attacks have added urgency to discussions of what can be done to reduce vehicular terrorism. In the lexicon of the security world, these ideas come under the heading of “hostile vehicle mitigation measures,” and they include a broad range of possibilities.

This dhimmi leaves out the most obvious cause and solution.

  • To compare vehicular terrorism with highway deaths is misleading, foolish, and assumes that death by terror is part of the cost of modern life. This entire essay addresses the symptoms and ignores the cause: Islam.

    What these ‘experts’, who obviously have their own agenda, leave out is intent. While certainly tragic, the vast majority of highway deaths are not intentional. Terrorism is intentional and chooses the most vulnerable as its victims.

    You can quote security experts and psychologists who call the masses irrational until the cows come home, but the fact is that Islamic jihadists want to kill us – all of us – and that’s a quite rational reason to be concerned.

    Mohammed knew how to deal with the enemy:
    “Drive them out from where they drove you out.”
    “And prepare against them whatever you are able of power.”
    Take his advice.

    “All measures will be in play from now on (short of anything useful and economical)”. is the normal response of most vote whores and government bureaucracies to all problems that can no longer be ignored.

  • Bla Bla

    Pretty obvious that through all the hand waving and virtue signaling, the chattering globalist class does not give two craps for the average joe on the street. To hell with us they say – if you complain about getting slaughtered, you are a racist and xenophobe.

    What’s The Best Way To Keep People Safe?

    Well the answer is surprisingly simple. Ban Islam and deport every single last muslim.

    Stop importing foreign enemies would be a good start.

  • Start dismantling the Islamist propaganda machine.

    No Heaven for people who kill kids.
