The cowardly wrath of radical Islamic terrorism continues to plague Europe, as the latest terrorist attacks in Barcelona, which ISIS has taken responsibility for, are now becoming a way of life for many Europeans.
Spanish authorities are warning that the death toll from the Las Ramblas van attack could rise from the initial 13 dead because of the severity of the 100 reported injured.
Thus far, three men in connection to the Ramblas attack have been arrested, but the driver was able to escaped by foot. As expected, Spain is conducting a massive nationwide manhunt for him, and anyone else involved in the attacks.
The second attack was thwarted in the town of Cambrils, where Spanish security forces shot and killed 5 suspected terrorists found what were found with fake bomb belts and trying to mimic the Barcelona attack
US condemnation of the acts of terror was swift.
The United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough & strong, we love you!

Vice President Mike Pence on a official trip to the Panama Canal said the following regarding the terrorist attack:
“I’d like to address the horrific terror attack that occurred just a few hours ago in Barcelona, Spain. The latest scenes of carnage and mayhem sicken us all. And as the president said earlier today, the united states condemns this terror attack and we will do whatever is necessary to help…”Whoever is responsible should know the United States of America, along with our allies, will find and punish those responsible and drive the evil of radical Islamic terror from the face of the Earth.”
