A bomb is just a bomb, be it a package, or similar.

A person wearing a vest full of plastique, nails, and other shrapnel materials, who chooses to kill himself/herself in order to spread their terror-message? That's frightening to most, hell, it's frightening to me...more so than a pipe bomb is. IMHO, of course.


I did not know that nail bombs were that common among suicide bombers.

The way the most basic nail bombs are made use pressure cookers or pipes. Bulky and meant to be dropped and walked away from.


This is how suicide bombers operated in Iraq. They made vests and place nails in the pockets. With the number of dead this was high explosives. This was a bomb maker and not someone using gunpowder.Having seen what these can do my heart goes out to these families.

I have a feeling this isn't going to be a good summer.

The enemy is within. The Euro countries best able to prevent this are the ones who mostly kept their borders closed, like Poland, Hungary, Czech, Serbia, Bulgaria, etc.

Western Europe is screwed.

Brexit, perhaps?

What sort of movement is afoot to reduce entrance by Muslims into Great Britain? That could possibly be the reason, or a combination of the two...

Or because they're evil bastards who thought bombing a concert would somehow make 'em scarier than they already are...

Why is the UK being hit lately??? Is there something recent going on there that would make them the target for any special reason????



Brexit ... possible immigration controls being discussed? I don't know. And that's the truth.

The European countries have opened their hearts to a lot of immigrants from Islamic countries. UK, France, Germany, Greece, etc., have enabled large influxes.

I've no idea what they hope to achieve.

Fear and publicity for terrorists.

Won't do em any good.

Aye - it can sway votes alright, and make people feel unsafe to go out and vote.

TBH, if this gets fingers pointing to Iran, I'm calling total BS. But, after that # show in Saudi Arabia, it would not surprise me in the least.

I guess it depends. How strong is the appeasement mindset in your countries?

Definitely watching those cctv cameras, only matter of time before a picture comes out or video.

A news conference is going to be held at an estimated time of 2:40 Manchester time. Lets hope we get some more facts to the incident.
Source is on Reddit: www.reddit.com...

So you mean that, if we explore that theory that is, that this is an attempt to scare people into stopping taking in refugees and immigrants then???

Would that help terrorists??? I guess keeping people in their region or something???

This happened four hours ago and yet no police press conference?

Why have the government not had COBRA meeting yet??

And why has their not been any word of JTAC on the security levels?

Just a few things am starting to wonder about

sometimes i need to not drag my personal mad on into posting it seems. . Everytime i hear of something like this i think about my IDF friend who was blown up by a bomb/rocket falling from the sky from Pali territory and im right back in that memory. And anyone celebrating this attack should also be shown the same mercy all terrorist get. a quick death.

No, more to get people thinking if we only stop making them hate us. We just have to understand them more ...

The appeasement mindset. Or battered wife syndrome. Take your pick.
