Merry Christmas from Our Enemy Governments

Taking no truck in those "Killer Trucks". Now trucks are the killers, as guns are the killers. It is never the killers who are "the killers". Those killer trucks just start themselves up, plow though innocent Christmas Market Shoppers and honk out 'Allahu akbar' and 'Infidels must die', all at the same time. m/r
"My own preference, as I've stated, is that, if free countries have to have unsightly security controls, why don't they have them around the national borders rather than around every single thing inside those borders?"

Market Forces

by Mark Steyn  Steyn on the World 
The following column appears in Australia's Herald Sun:
On Saturday morning, I recalled a conversation over the summer with a German lady who had "found herself on the receiving end of some vibrant multicultural outreach from one of Mutti Merkel's boy charmers":
As a result, she no longer goes out after dark. She had also decided - with reluctance, because she enjoyed it - to cancel her participation in a local Christmas market, where she'd sung carols every year - in broad daylight.
"Why would you do that?" I asked.
"Because it's Christmas," she said, "and I'm worried Christmas will be a target."
And I concluded:
Christmas markets are a grand German tradition, but probably not for much longer.
Forty-eight hours later, twelve people are dead and 48 are injured (at the time of writing) because they attended a Christmas market at Breitscheidplatz in Berlin. This BBC headline effortlessly conveys the madness of our times:
Lorry kills 12 at Christmas market
Ah, so the truck did it. So it's nothing that can't be fixed by some basic truck-control measures - like, say, licensing and registration of trucks.
