In 2005, four home-grown militants killed 52 people in coordinated suicide attacks on London's transport system.

With London hosting the Olympic Games in July and August, security has become an increasingly important issue in Britain.

Evans acknowledged that the Games offered "an attractive target for our enemies", but said the security forces would ensure a safe event.

"The Games are not an easy target and the fact that we have disrupted multiple terrorist plots here and abroad in recent years demonstrates that the UK as a whole is not an easy target for terrorism," he said.

I have to ask, false flag for what, exactly?

Nonsense aside, the attacks were perpetrated by home-grown Jihadi's in apparent response to our activities abroad which, apparently, are to prevent terrorism. Ironic?

Never the less, MI5 should concentrate on our own extremists and not worry about Syria or anywhere else. Only recently, several Police Officers have been sacked because 5 told Scotland Yard of their trips to Madrasses in Pakistan.

Whenever I see these generalized reports coming from prominent news organizations I wince.

The article has no author. (The first sign of propaganda)
The article is in keeping with the stated goals of the west to increase "propaganda" over the matter of "the Arab Spring.".
The article describes a threat which cannot be quantified or qualified...

Seems like the United States more and more every day.....

Next you will all be told that you have a curfew.... for your protection.
