    Default Terror Attack in London 22/03/17

    What sounds like a one-person attack in Westminster, London is reported this afternoon. A car drove down a number of pedestrians on the bridge, reportedly the driver then ran down to Parliament and knifed a policeman.

    The man was reported shot by police and taken away in an ambulance.

    No indication of motive.

    Not a threat to the state. But meat and drink for the heavy regressive right. More armed cops. More draconian laws , more surveillance.

    I think this is an on-the-ball assessment, unfortunately.

    Shows how advanced the British Police State is that the number of those killed is a fraction of those killed in France, Germany etc. These fellas are reduced to the basics again but everyone else pays for it with their rights.

    Yes, the "unarmed British Police" were quick off the mark.

    Yeah ... the British Government and ISIS have a secret plan and agreement to introduce more draconian laws into the UK ...

    From ''Inspire'' magazine, said to have been downloaded by 50.000 Muslims in Britain last year.. Rant by Tommy Robinson, former EDL leader at scene of London attack yesterday.. https://milo.yiannopoulos.net/2017/0...rips-reporter/


    Quote.. The articles inside Inspire were used to incite rage against non-believers and the West. The periodical explained what to expect in jihad and the theory of open front jihad and individual jihad. The arguments presented explained the difficulty of an open front engagement with American forces and the difficulty of traveling overseas to conduct jihad. Therefore, the solution for Muslims was individual obligatory (fard’ayn) jihad to attack while the Islamic nation was strategically weak.

    Spontatenous operations performed by individuals and cells here and there over the whole world, without connections between them, have put the local and international intelligence apparatus in a state of confusion, as arresting the members of aborted cells does not influence the operational activities of others who are not connected with them.

    "Open source jihad"
    Inspire promoted "open source jihad". This shifted away from al-Qaeda’s traditional terrorist attacks to simple attacks by individuals using common items for weapons. The Fall 2010 issue encouraged using one's car to "mow down" people in crowded places ("The ultimate mowing machine"). unquote. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inspir...dividual_jihad

    I think Islamic extremists hold the element of surprise as MI5 and others seek them here and there.

    ?? Met Police are combination of armed and unarmed. This surely is not news to you, it has been thusly for decades.

    You are putting word's in his mouth, I don't think Donal Og's post suggested anything of the sort.

    ok so far i have this

    the attacker of Westminster was a British national, 52, family man and a teacher. (hardly the profile of a terrorist.)

    the Islamic State claimed he was one of his 'foot soldiers' and ntp (our new member) seems to have pretty decent info showing that IS has only claimed hits that it can substantiate w video of the assailant swearing loyalty to their 72 virgins i suppose

    then i think i overheard the new iron lady saying that this was a Terrorist attack on 'Our Democracy'

    meanwhile in the UK they started their vigils w candles, maybe some singing, g-d knows maybe some shagging later on to release the pressure of living in horrible (war) times such as these

    meanwhile i am telling my friends in EU to keep in mind that Britain is the only country in Europe that is able to sell a police state to the populace under the realm of Liberalism. The others in the continent need to look into each of their respective historic records and find out what happens when entire portions of the population are targeted or tagged in some less favorable way...

    none of it seems to matter. .. people have made their mind that the enemy is within.
