Terror attack in Barcelona

I don't think anyone knows for certain.

 

A van zigzags and plows through pedestrians, then the driver escapes on foot. There are some mixed reports that a man originally from North Africa has been arrested.

Of course there are such reports. I'll wait for police confirmation

 

UPDATE: Police says they have arrested one, don't say who; also reports that someone is hiding in a bar are false.

Difficult to say as many use fake identities.

I guess it's a Muslim? Since Trump tweeted immediately.

Aren't we still waiting for facts?

This new attack may be a problem, since we have elections in a few weeks. I hope it doesn't shift public opinion drastically.

 

On a side note: if the terrorists are smart they plan attacks according to elections. That'll heighten the chance to strengthen nationalists and thereby severely destabilise Europe.

Now he needs to condemn the one in Charlottesville.

 

As for who the suspects are, yeah, they say they have one in custody and another is on the run, possibly hiding in a bar or something, but identity hasn't been released yet.

 

edit: Actually, police have released a photo of the suspect, who was born in morocco: http://www.bbc.com/news/live/40966524 Still too early to assume much though.

I think we can agree both sides are at fault here.

So much for carefully waiting for all the facts...

I guess he only waffles and waits when it's an attack by a white, right-wing, American male.

this week? xD

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

Well an intense look. Every day is a look, just degrees change.
