The extra security measures for terrorism...umm...well that happened in Northern Ireland during the 1970's and through the 80's and 90's. The
military would go onto buses and check handbags and confiscate plastic toy guns from kids (obvious water pistols) etc..many of the military also
abused their power and acted more like terrorists than protectors as always happens.... there were military checkpoints everywhere which slowed people
down and humiliated them with continual stop and search routines. The people in that part of the country had a sh17 life, due to bombs going off,
continual bomb scares and on top of that a police state to protect them.
However there were also bombings and terrorist attacks on mainland Britain, yet no martial law? this was during the same 30 year period. The main
explanation for this was there had to be a military presence in Northern Ireland to keep the Republicans from attacking the Unionists..and having an
all out civil war. As there were no risk of a civil war on mainland Britain, there was no police state there. So terrorist attacks do not provoke a
police state ..only the risk of civil war brings a police state into existence for legitimate reasons. however if the UK had not held onto N.I. for so
long as a territory, there would have been no real problems to begin with.
If The USA is gradually rolling out a police state, which seems to be the case, then it cannot be justified as a protection against terrorism. Also as
the American public are unaware of most of this obvious stuff, they are willing to roll over. And if another " terror attack" weather its a genuine
terrorist or a false flag, it will give the final ammunition for the government to push through martial law.
