Youd be amazed at the number of everyday items that make good weapons and properly used quite lethal ..

a drop in the capabilities of intelligence services to snoop on communications


This caught my attention. What the heck is he talking about? Unless they've been lying, they've been vacuuming up every bit of data and conversation for the last decade. So the bad guys have ways of circumventing this? If so then they can stop all the data collecting and spying on citizens just about right now!

Same thing as happened in Canada

And our new terrorist laws were planned in advance


Even before the attack, Cotler said, there were plans afoot to enhance Canada’s anti-terrorism laws “with respect to investigation, detection, monitoring – we have some 90 Canadians who are under surveillance because they might seek to travel abroad to fight.

Apparently this speech had been prepared before the attacks in France but the timing is interesting.

With Jihadists from the UK returning from Syria and Iraq the threat we are facing and our ability to combat that thread is becoming wider, but the balance between liberty and security is a delicate one.

Personally I think that the key to combating the threat we face is not more legal powers but rather more man power for the security services to monitor suspects with in the current legal frame work and secondly improving community relations within Muslim communities and engaging them to reduce extremism.

If there is to be any new powers they should be to further prevent people travelling abroad to fight.

MI5 want more draconian powers.

French Police Union want all French Police armed.

Anyone else smell anything...fishy about all of this?

Watch the video of the Avenue Pierre Brosdolette shooting...

NO AK47 recoil, despite the gunman holding the rifle one handed.

NO Reverberating report from the rifle as it fired. (sounded more like a child's cap gun than a powerful AK47)

NO head virtually exploding by being hit at mere inches range.

NO reaction or jolt or movement from the body being hit in the head at inches range by an AK47.

NO apparent blood, bits of body, hair, clothing or any noticeable debris being thrown up at the point the shot hit.

NO muzzle flash.

NO smoke.

NO bloody way.

My guess...another power grab and chance to stick it to us all.





Thanks for the gory details, that was bloody disgusting. Youre an expert on firearms are you? Where did you learn about them? How many years experience shooting and handling them do you have? And I don't mean Call of duty hours in front ofnthe playstation or PC.
