This morning’s word on the attack in Nice and the coup in Turkey

This has been cut and pasted from the first of yesterday’s two posts:

“……… one suspects that come tomorrow the neighbours’ observations and the fact that the locals never saw him going to the mosque, will be all but forgotten by most of the media. Indeed, it might even be that contrary to the investigation’s conclusions today, there will be a very different conclusion tomorrow.”

And what do we have in today’s ‘Guardian’? Well, what about this:

“Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the truck attack in Nice that killed 84 people, injured more than 200 and brought carnage to a Bastille Day fireworks celebration on Thursday night.” 

Not that there is any evidence to support this claim and it might be suspected that Mohamed Lahouaiej-Bouhlel being totally unknown to the intelligence services ,  never gong to the mosque, having serious personal problems, and being described as a very weird loner” by his neighbours, will probably all soon be forgotten. The convenient narrative has been established, the state of emergency has been extended, and the French state continues to pursue its own agenda.

Meanwhile in Turkey the coup appears to be over and with bated breath Erdogan’s revenge might be awaited. Whatever that entails we speculate on one thing and that is that Ataturk’s Turkey, while probably not dead and buried, will cease to exist for at least a few years.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
