    So sad. Thoughts go to the victims and their families.

    Very sad. Today is looking like a pretty violent day in history. This, Zurich shooting, Russian Ambassador, inevitable electoral college unrest, etc.

    Update: two terrorists involved. First one died in the crash, second one has been arrested a few minutes ago.
    Terrorist plot confirmed.

    Think you'll find it's a pretty normal day, because a Russian diplomat and some German (and possibly other) shoppers have been killed makes very little difference to the overall death toll.
    The puke inducing sentimentality mixed with a bizarre belief in the supernatural really makes me wonder about a lot of Americans (and others too of course).

    Go ahead and slander the religious that offer sympathy, totally disregard the fact that that two of the attacks were carried out in the name of Islam. Okay buddy.

    To be be clear and succinct, you are saying that the televised execution of a Russian Ambassador by a Turkish cop is "a pretty normal day" because some people have "puke inducing sentimentality."

    Got it.

    Wonder if this will end up being a Christmas gift from the "religion of peace"?

    The two attacks were carried out in the name of religion by which of the 57 varieties matters little.Can you not see the irony of praying for the family of the victim of religeous violence.

    Show me in this thread before you went off the rails, where anyone mention prayer or religion at all?

    So unnecessary deaths, particularly murder, should be given no sympathy because they simply fall into a fraction of statistical deaths?

    Should murders just be let off the hook under the justification of "oh, it's just one person out of billions and they were going to die anyways"

    I for one happen to value human life. Sorry if you don't. And murder is one thing, murder/terrorism of innocent people you don't even know is another.

    Not sure what superstition has to do with any of this.

    BTW: The killing of a Russian Diplomat could very likely have even worse consequences for people already affected by the reign don Russia.

    Since people also kill for money (actually the majority), I will stop saying "praying for the victims" (which no one has said so far, you brought religion into it) the day that you refuse your salary.

    So it's a copy cat attack like Nice France.

    Lets get it out of the way and insert the customary liberal, "But most Muslims" and "You're a racist" out of the way.

    Does anyone know if Trump dabbles in the trucking business? He could be indirectly involved/responsible for this.

    No. Daesh is losing ground.

    Syrians generally do seem to be pretty broken. The Germans have bent over backwards to be nice to them. They should be grassing up the dodgy ones.

    Probably just you, IS has been losing ground and is now lashes out in random attacks like this. Saying that IS is winning would be like saying a snake is winning a fight because it's jaws keep snapping after you cut off its head.

    If I know Germany, right now the interior minister is probably doing everything he can to come up with a rationale that it was an accident.

    Update: truck was Polish, and it was traveling from Italy. Apparently the truck was hijacked, and the driver/owner was forced to drive at gunpoint.

    Who said anything about blaming religion or the actual people involved?!?!? A better question is when are we going to ban these very large high capacity trucks!
