The Bastille Day terrorist sent a series of chilling text messages just minutes before his deadly attack on the Nice Riviera - delighting in his last minute preparations for the atrocity.

Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel had asked for the 'heaviest truck’ available when he rented the 19-tonne vehicle and had spent two days driving up and down the Promenade des Anglais working out how to cause the greatest amount of damage.

Now, details have emerged of text messages he sent moments before he slaughtered 84 people and injured hundreds of others who were watching a fireworks display.

He also took a selfie of himself in the truck between picking it up and going on his killing spree, sending it via SMS to others it has now been claimed.


***Remember kids, no matter what the libs say, don’t bring a truck to a gun fight. Having seen multiple FB posts on how a having a gun couldn’t  have stopped this guy.. He drove a truck!
I wonder if the Seattle Times will now retract their front page story about how this guy was ‘Weird loner’ not militant. Doubt it.. Why ask why?
