Most of Ariana Grande's fans are teenage girls. Go out to a concert with your daughter and get blown to hell, what the # is happening to Europe?

CNN hypothesizing that homegrown terrorists who have returned from the M.E after fighting/being trained will be the focus of police investigations. They are calling it a mass-casualty terrorist attack undertaken by a suicide bomber.

Suicide bombers don't make their own vests - it takes a special person to do that who must remain alive and protected for the cause.

ETA: It's been confirmed the blast 'just outside the venue, just as the concert finished and folks were leaving the venue'


Why would a suicide bomber use a nail bomb vest?

You can place a nail bomb in a bag/garbage can, walk away and blow it from a distance/timer.


Because a suicide vest will be able to carry more nails less conspicuously than a package can. It is easier to conceal than a person dropping a package off and walking away. Manchester does not have trash receptacles (not many anyways) from the IRA days. The human body can also act as a weapon itself when exploded as you have bone /etc. It can create a biohazard as well.


Interesting.

Still reading up on this aspect.

Thanks for the info.

A good deed in the name of allah, therefore Heaven, 72 virgins.



All fat, bearded dudes with a fungus, but technically all still virgins because livestock doesn't count...welcome to Paradise!

Shouldn't this be in the war on terrorism forums?

Being in the other events forum has a rather crass pushed under the rug effect.

Maybe for you, but "islamic terrorists" was just mentioned on a MSM station here in the US while discussing this attack with a UK reporter


It's the 4th anni of the Rigby murder.

Jesus. Now I'm fighting back tears.


Just be wary of this. There are lots of people posting old internet meme photos with these messages. There is a large amount of trolling currently going on. (edited to add: there's currently one of a weird looking boy holding a big grey cat - that's a known fake)

If you come across a large picture with lots of headshots of "confirmed dead" or "confirmed missing", there's a picture using random headshots of minor youtuber celebs/random people with this kind of caption, it's fake.

This is the second terrorist attack in the UK in the last couple of months.

I really hope we are not about to turn into France.

What does me being a Trump supporter have to do with it? I'm just trying to point out the uncanny timing of Trump's anti terror speech yesterday. Is it possible that the terrorists are ramping it up because of the speech?


I think that is possible - with Iran being the organiser that has these types of attacks ready to go.

This attack occurred on the 4th anniversary of the death of the British soldier who was hacked to death on the street.

In my view it should be in a "UK/EU Madness forum"

But despite petitioning the owners several times they still refuse to create such a forum.

That may be too late a hope.
We still need confirmation of who did this.

Apologies at the time of writing it was based on my own witnessing of as many police and ambulances I have ever seen in my life, I had no idea or hope it should have been in another forum.
