There's more to this story than meets the eye, COBRA, is involved which signifies that intelligence was most likely known prior to the incident.


I don't think it means there must be previous intel, the meeting could have been because there is now a nationalist threat in the UK from the far right. This has been seen in the BNP, EDL and the (arguable) UKIP too.

The EDL are now fighting with police in Woolwich, that is reason enough to form Cobra after this terrorist attack. There is a greater risk of more social unrest in RETALIATION more than repeat attacks.

Also I have just received information that military personnel are to travel in civilian clothes when not on duty. This would arouse suspicion that an influx in similar attacks may be imminent.


I saw that mentioned once as a possibility, changing policy to encourage civilian clothes. But that would only be sensible after this in my opinion. All the analysts have been saying that this seems to be "clean skin" or home grown.

Look, all I'm saying is that if you watch the news in the UK, they do not show graphic scenes like cops shooting people, ok?

That is all.

And yes, there is a big f**king difference between what we see in the movies and real life.

Allah is a word in the Arabic spoken Language as a word forGod. A poetic expression which there are many of in saying God's name. Depending on your influence.

Where abouts in Essex is this happening? Trying to find a source as I just read on facebook about a Mosque in Essex (as you said earlier) being attacked by yobs with bricks. Nothing on MSM about this yet as far as my search found. Most likely there's plenty of these retaliation attacks going on around the country at present. Probably expect it to get worse at the weekend.

It is extremely unfortunate that the edl and bnp will now get a surge of support, wether from anonymous donaters, or more messages of support through there message boards.
The last thing the UK needs is someone from the uk military getting involved with these guys and attempting to give them a basic level of discipline and training, as soon as the edl realise this is what they lack and decide sincerely to raise their game, it could really begin.

I wouldn't be surprised to see tit for tat attacks and killings now.

Both sides are hijacked for a nefarious agenda, both islam, and the political muscle groups, where does it end?.

Oh dear, I live near Luton, birthplace of EDL muppetry. This could make things a little more like a tinderbox than they already are. I'll expect the moron brigade to be running around starting on anyone with brown skin to start soon.

With all this uncertainty over exactly how these events transpired from start to end, does anybody wish there was some way of filming public areas constantly? Oh, wait, I forgot... cctv is a tool of the nwo and can only be a negative presence in our lives.

Not much "terrorism" going on, when it affects 1 person. The cameraman didn't seem "terrified". I mean, dude he's interviewing just chopped off someone's head??? Therefore, what was the point of this "terrorist" act? Now, if those dudes would have blown up the barracks, theeeeeeeen we could say: "terrorism". This isn't terrorism, this is straight up agenda based PROPAGANDA! Also, i'd like to say that just because these "events" happen in the open, doesn't mean they couldn't have been REHEARSED, prior to. Who's gonna question the authenticity of a Hollywood scene gone live? Who's gonna stick around and find out, if blanks started poppin' off? It's easy to create "staged panic". Light an M-80 in a crowd, and see what happens.

This brave woman deserves a medal.

www.telegraph.co.uk... ndon-tonight.html


Mum talked down Woolwich terrorists who told her: 'We want to start a war in London tonight'

“I asked him if he did it and he said yes and I said why? And he said because he has killed Muslim people in Muslim countries, he said he was a British solider and I said really and he said 'I killed him because he killed Muslims and I am fed up with people killing Muslims in Afghanistan they have nothing to do there.”




Eyewitness Joe Tallant has said that the attackers looked like they wanted to be caught by the police.
He told BBC News: "They could have gotten away but they were just walking around like they wanted the police to come and get them.
“They were waiting for the police, they were telling people, civilians on the street, to call the police, they wanted to get caught, they were stupid people.”
He said when armed officers arrived a policewoman “jumped out” and shot them both. It was the police who opened first, he confirmed.
He said they had the gun out but were just “walking casually” with their arms at their sides.




Counter-terrorism expert Richard Barrett said it was possible the attackers may have been "copycats" of the Boston bombers.
Mr Barrett said: "I don't think we have seen much of this in terms of attacks on armed service personnel in the UK before.
"It may be that this is a copycat after the Boston bombings. That two individuals could cause a lot of mayhem is maybe more of an inspiration than attacking soldiers."
The former United Nations co-ordinator for the al-Qaida and Taliban monitoring team, who has served with MI5 and MI6, said it was clear the attackers wanted to "explain" their actions.
Mr Barrett added: "It looks like an attack which has certainly been done for effect. The way that they are hanging about and wanting to be arrested and explain what they were doing fits a pattern of people who want to send a message.


Suspiciously, this happened as Sweden has seen attacks from hundreds of Somalians.

I have to say the really gut punching thing I find disturbing about this video (The attacker speaking to the camera) Is the persons obviously thick London accent and him referring to English people as "You people" and to somewhere other than England as "Our lands"

You don't develop an accent like that over night so I would think it a safe bet that this guy has been through the English education system, lived and worked among English people and yet has still somehow been able to be separated enough from reality by some outside force to see the people around him as "the enemy"

I'm finding that kind of mind numbingly worrying honestly.

Just in case some people have trouble with the accent here is what he says

(unclear something about fight them)
"An eye for an eye a tooth for a tooth"
"I apologize that women had to witness this today, but in our lands women have to see the same"
"You people will never be safe. Remove your governments, they don't care about you"

It's the same scenario as in a movie i saw few years ago. Young men on the edge of breakdown caused by financial and other problems meets a guy who comes from the country of his parents. The man helps this young man and over time brainwashes him into believing that UK soldiers overseas are killing and torturing civilians. After some time they plan an attack on the UK soldiers for killing civilians.

Something like this could easily happen with these men. People on the edge are easily brainwashed.

Just for your info, the police are different over here (U.K). But, as I understand it, the armed police were not there when that video was taken, they arrived 20 minutes after the start of the incident and shot two men almost straight away, who are now in hospital.
Contrary to news reports, violence of a bloody nature is not that uncommon in any inner-city of U.K but especially London. People don't get involved unless they have too as it usually a personal attack, (drugs/gangs etc) or a someone with mental issues. It was a particularly violent and graphic attack and I'm not sure people could believe what they were seeing when the attackers wanted to be filmed and hung around for 20 minutes instead of running away! That is the shocking part.
Why the government and media are constantly referring to it as a terrorist threat is beyond myself and everyone I know and remains to be seen, Ridiculous reporting on BBC and Sky. I.T.V news was better.
Hope that gives you some perspective from a U.K point of view.

Cameras generally dont stop crime. And they dont always catch the criminals either. And yes they are very much a negative presence in our lives. My parking fines are certainly not positive.

here's what i think;

this event, though not fake, was staged.

it is intended to be the trigger for widespread unrest.

it is already proving effective.


I agree. It's got half this thread ready to round up muslims. There is no progress in our species. There hasn't been progress since the crusades, nazi germany, or japanese internment camps. Humans are ignorant and unevolving.

And your theory on how cctv's stop crimes is?
From my understanding video cameras observe life as it happens and does not necessarily prevent, but may alter peoples perception knowing they are being watched, it from happening either, please explain?

So the guys message is bring the troops back, they are not supposed to be there.

He also said something about our politicians not being the ones at risk, instead they put us at risk.

That's a pretty normal message, but they can't expect people to take it seriously after killing someone, killing someone to send a message is 100% the wrong way to go about it. Especially if it's because of a warped sense of morals.
