terrorist experts predict an attack in britain is not a matter of 'if' but 'when'?
does this worry anybody else? i live in manchester and it makes me more than a little uneasy to know that britain is on the highest level terror threat?
how do you walk around and feel relaxed when we live in such dangerous times with muslim terrorists?
That has been the worry for some time, but I can do nothing about it, so I keep calm and carry on.
It was the Commissioner of the Metroplolitan Police who said that and he was just stating what has probably been the case since the London 7/7 attacks. Following those attacks the police and security agencies agreed to adopt a coordinated approach to fighting terrorism and to share intelligence, something the French have failed to do. Some of that intelligence is provided by the Muslim immigrant community through reports of suspicious people and activities to the police. That approach has thwarted numerous attacks over the past ten years but the Commissioner was acknowledging that eventually a planned attack will go undetected.
The Commissioner also suggested the UK's acceptance of difference and "shared values" provided a hostile environment for terrorists: "Our approach to Muslims is no different because these attacks purport to be committed in the name of Islam. We don't stigmatise the millions of British Muslims whose values and faith completely reject the terrorists' litany of hate."
Well duh. Of course if you wait long enough there will be an attack. That was never not true. It will never not be be true as long long as people are in Britain. Me, I feel as relaxed knowing there will be an attack from terrorists as I am knowing that people will be struck by lightning. (And yes, that's quite relaxed, thanks.) Why worry about it? The worst terrorist attack in history didn't really kill all that many people. The odds that you will be killed by a terrorist are quite a bit lower than the odds that you'll be killed on a morning commute.
Remember that even after the worst terror attacks, the vast majority of the people in the nation are not harmed.
You be a bit vigilant without getting upset. Make a game or a routine of it.
Don't waste your suffering. If and when it comes, it is soon enough.
There have been terrorist attacks in UK in the past, there will be in the future.
But a sense of proportion is vital. 59 people have died in UK from terrorist action this century, including 56 on 7/7/2005. In that time, about 40,000 people have been killed in accidents on our roads; probably over one million have died from smoking related illnesses. I'd suggest you don't smoke, and take care crossing the road.
If you're still terrified by terrorism, perhaps you could stay at home. Oh, did I tell you, about 6,000 people die each year due to accidents in the home.
These self styled terrorists experts want to sell security equipment to larger scale by creating scare .. as far matter of whenit may be few hundred years ..
remedy attack the country of origin of terrorists like Allied iraq
Britain and anyone else who shells and bombs locations where ISIS hides in Muslim nations, all will be on the terror list. Ask yourself why America, Europe, Russia, and Iran all are bombing and shelling ISIS hiding places. There's only one reason--it's that they all want the oil.
We don't need to be told by experts that it will happen, we can think for ourselves...well some of us anyway and we know that it will happen.
Funny. The UK has had more terrorist attacks by catholic fanatics and yet they now focus so intently on the fact that there's muslim terrorists.
It never worries me. There probably will be more attacks but you have probably got more chance of winning the lottery than being in that certain place and time when or if it does happen.
No, I don't. You worry about everything. Apparently, you never leave your flat. Do you think ISIS are going to come and knock on your door or something?
yes when that will be when the Terrorists find a large Enough Target with the Most Publicity
that's about as useful as bbc news saying its going to rain or the AA saying there will be traffic
That's sadly true probably...
That was also the case in the 1970s and 1980s etc when the IRA was on the rampage.
it might not happen
We British do not bend to threats or evil action of loony dummies. Those who seek to destroy will be destroyed.
Yeah I read that in the Metro.
Of course its bound to happen,and there is little we can do to stop it,however we can try and constant vigilance is the best way.Mosques obviously are the biggest danger in spreading Islam,especially the extreme version of Islam so many of the terrorists follow. Hopefully the few moderate muslims could play their part in reporting any of their flock they see as being "radicalised"

Gun-loving American says that #Britain has a terrorist attack every hour – the replies are amazing
IT IS A TERRORIST ATTACK. Not a mass shooting, Not "a mentally ill white man" but A domestic terrorist attack. #route91 #PrayForLasVegas 1556214 - 95.785440613027
The #Stratford AcidAttacks, may or may not be another Islamic terrorist attack, but they are undoubtedly a terrorist attack.
When the Nixon Administration still refused to change its policies in
response to these violent confrontations, radicals turned increasingly to
the use of terrorist violence. Bombings had been on the increase for a
couple of years, and during the summer of 1970, they became even more
frequent. But the walls of the Establishment still did not come tumbling
down. Members of the Panthers, S.N.C.C., and the Weathermen--the
left-wing of the Students for a Democratic Society--were generally
thought to be responsible for much of this terrorism. Instead of rallying
fresh supporters to the cause of the radical left, their terrorism only
served to alienate other moderates and radicals. Although the violence of
this left fringe increased, their numbers appeared to decrease, and
because of this the terrorist fringe began to reevaluate its tactics and
the whole situation.
'Matter!' she repeated, chafing her hands and elbows, nervously,
and looking anywhere but at him. 'That's good in you, Britain,
that is! After going and frightening one out of one's life with
noises and lanterns, and I don't know what all. Matter! Oh, yes!'
