If the peace-loving Muslims do not sort their house out, and the cowards who hide among them continue to reek carnage on innocents, then I fear that the days are numbered before all Muslims will be painted with the same brush and will consequently be marked for death by militias and other groups who will form with the single intent of killing Muslims - radical or not........because the government and/or peace-loving Muslims refuses to do what needs to be done.
I whole heartedly agree and I think most Americans and Europeans would also agree. It would be like finding a needle in a hay stack trying to identify these radical Islamists. If Islam is viewed by the majority of Muslims to be a "peaceful religion", than peaceful Muslims should be intent on exposing these radicals! I would think "peaceful Muslims" would want to weed out this evil scourge, which is creating a negative view on their Islamic religion and Muslim population as a whole. Inaction by peaceful Muslims only solidifies the public's view that most Muslims partially or fully agree with the actions of these Islamic terrorists!

They have to be unarmed in case they overreact. Training can cause you to react instantly, then find there wasn't a threat in the first place.
If it hots up to them needing to be armed we better have our New Home Guard ready for tea making and mopping up duties.

but to leave the sas unarmed is a bit of a oversight is it not?
do you expect them to use unarmed combat against the type of arms used in paris?
does this infact put the lives of some of our best trained troops at risk?
i say its like releasing the dogs,but the dogs have muzzles on !!!

I'm kind of glad about this because the government has a responsibility to protect the people at such times. I am critical of Paris authorities for being blind to the obvious after Charlie and all that. I don't think they will make the same mistake again.
It's naive to think that putting military on the streets can avoid attacks like we've seen in Paris.
Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to stop people from initiating driveby shootings or blowing themselves up.
That's the harsh reality we face today.
Only solution in my opinion is to try and stop people from radicalising, before they decide to engage in terrorist acts.
