    We don't even know if it is Islamic terrorism yet, (although one would assume).

    I've already seen a lot of posts online and efforts to put tray the IRAs 1996 bombing with this terrible event... No doubt this is fueled by Corbyn's comments over the weekend.

    All the billions of dollars in arms deals around the World can't stop this kind of attack anywhere. Something deliberately selective and timely about this attack me thinks..... an American artist at a British venue, images of traumatised kids in mass hysteria.

    Sickening to us.... quality Jihadi tv time for them.

    God loves Teresa May. I have no idea why but it's hard to avoid that conclusion.

    All of a sudden she is in big trouble in the election because of the "dementia tax" ... and then, lo and behold, just as the right wing press is going after Corbyn as an IRA supporter, there is a major terrorist attack.

    It couldn't have worked out better if she had planned it.

    US officials have named the perp:

    The suicide bomber who killed 22 people and injured dozens more at the Manchester Arena has been named as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, according to US officials.

    Born in Manchester in 1994, the second youngest of four children his parents were Libyan refugees who came to the UK to escape the Gaddafi regime.

    Thatchers revenge. While the Labour Government signed the IRA up to the Good Friday Agreement thus affording militants a political status, some are out to undo that.

    Seems to be a mix of opinions about the lad that did it. Some say quiet and polite, a local imam reckons the lad looked at him with hate after he denounced terrorism in a sermon.

    And became less frequent at the Mosque thereafter. Wonder did ''local Imam'' report any concerns at the time and was the lad on a watch list?

    Well - the comprehensive info dump into the New York Times presumably of confidential info passed by the UK government is very interesting because we don't usually get to see anything like this.

    The bomb was a complex and expertly constructed device that appears to have been designed to be operated remotely. No firm evidence as yet that it was intended to be, or was, operated by the carrier.

    this was an unauthorized release/leak of sensitive information as the investigation was still ongoing in Manchester which is simply horrendous for the families of the victims and the investigation itself

    in other words a major 'beach of trust' btw UK and US spooking agencies.. you add that to Trump 'volunteering' Israeli intel himself to the Russians and all of a sudden a pattern emerges ...

    (not very good leadership on the part of the US, imho, as the clown is traveling the world looking like the dumbass he really is)

    Trump condemns "alleged leaks" after complaints from Britain


    I am surprised he is not claiming it is 'fake news out of Britain'..

    CNN reporting that the UK has rescinded it's less than day old ban on sharing intel with US.
    As a general rule the most successful man in life is the man who has the best information.

    On allegations of M16 "collusion" in creating a jihadist Libyan force to remove Ghaddafi and allegations that this led to the bombing.

    http://truepublica.org.uk/united-kin...bomber-attack/

    Another note re Libya - Prosecutions of Libyans in relation to the killing of PC Yvonne Fletcher were dropped last week due to "national security" reasons.

    Blair apparently issued a letter of comfort to the main suspect.

    The whole story of the U.K. interaction with Ghadaffi needs to be unearthed. It is a despicable picture.
