Oh, c'mon... Martial Law in the UK? How, exactly? We're cutting troops numbers, we're cutting police numbers, we're slashing the Government left and
right and yet, somehow, some paranoid folks still believe in "false flags" or "martial law prepartions".
Also, the whole thing about there being a "training exercise identical to 7/7" on the day is ludicrous and a total myth. It was a seminar, held in a
conference centre dealing with possible scenarios London could face not an exercise and it was one of many held every month in London, you know, the
capital city of the UK and chief place to meet and do business. These "exercises" (seminars) are still
held frequently and yet, we've only had
the one attack from the Islamics.
It was just plain coincidence one happened to be held on the day, just like it was pure coindicdence I wasn't in London working that day myself but
took the day off. But using the logic on display here you'd probably summise I was in on the attacks, as I decided not to go into the capital that
day! Or perhaps, because my cat made himself scarce that day and wasn't back until the next day, maybe he was the mastermind behind it all?
That is the level of logic I see on this site these days. No critical thinking, repetition of myth without verification and total paranoia about
non-sensical and disconnected events.
And, I bet if the Police weren't
training and such an event happened which they bodged up (due to lack of training) the very same people crying
"false flag!! Waaah!" would be up in arms about how the Police are either incompetant or allowed it to happen. Win-Win for the paranoid dellusionists
and archair strategists based on nothing but playing devils advocate with baseless fantasy.
Oh, to the poster who said "I bet it's a flase flag for an attack on iran and they'll use Iranians". What about the embassy siege in the 80's? Dealt
with, no fuss, no war and that's when we could have got away with it. These days, we're looking to GET OUT
of the wars we're in, they are too
expensive and yet, somehow, people STILL BELIEVE
that the UK is going to get itself involved in any bollocks going down in Tehran.
EDIT: Cosmic4life, you say you remember the 70's, 80's and the IRA. Did you live in Belfast or Germany back then? Were you frequently the target of
IRA bombs and shootings? Chances are, if you were a civvy, you would have not noticed anything and plus, the media was much less prevalent back then
so such "training" wouldn't make the news, but it did happen.
I remember the 80's in ireland and Germany and we had to check our car EVERY
time we used it, we had to report EVERY
even if it was a thermos, so the bomb squad could blow it up. The amoutn of flase alarms I went through can't be counted, but it became a way of life.
Trust me when I say that back then wasn't all rosy
