PARIS: By ramming his truck into a Bastille Day celebration of liberte and fraternite, the driver delivered a murderous message for France: No matter who you are or what you're doing, you are not safe anywhere.Thursday night's attack was even more indiscriminate than last year's bloodshed in Paris, which targeted various locations, with many of the victims aged from their 20s to their 40s, out enjoying a Friday night.The inclusion of so many children among the victims distinguished this attack from others that targeted adults.That made it an attack on all of humanity.France's roughly 54 million people who don't live in the Paris region could, before Thursday, draw some comfort from the fact that last year's attacks were geographically limited to the capital, the seat of power.The Nice attack, on the balmy Mediterranean coast, utterly punctures the illusion that areas outside of Paris are risk-free.After the attack, people from Calais in the north to Perpignan in the south and from the Atlantic coast to the Alps cannot be 100 percent sure they are out of harm's way.
