That particularly cockroach will continue for as long as she can; she has 3 kids to get through private school, don't you know.. Very lucrative being her and she would soon change her tone if it wasn't.

Waiting now for some discussion on the decreasing ability of agencies and police to consistently monitor communities for growing threats like this. It was something that was highlighted quite a few times after the french attacks where the dismantling of the inner cities intel network after 2008 has made France a more dangerous place today.. too much ignorance when it comes to how radicalization works within poor isolated generational immigrant communities where many young males/females are ripe for the picking.

The real care that was available to help communities and assist police to monitor the vulnerable as well as dangerous groups/individuals is no longer there.


While the need for vigilance must be balanced with the need for privacy, i would point out that it appears this was the work of a lone wolf, which is very hard to detect, even with monitoring and electronic surveillance.

lone wolves generally don't have much success building viable bombs.

It's really not that difficult.

This bomb was particularly nasty as there were nuts and bolts around the explosive which act as shrapnel and are very devistating, or if you are the perpertrator, very effective unfortuantley

Re: Explosion at Manchester Arena

The suicide bombers are not usually very strong people. They are mostly vulnerable individuals and often mentally ill. They are genuinely pleased when some b**t**d shows them a bit of kindness and tells them a story about being famous and doing the right thing for their religion.

How can we stop it? I think only by using police informers in the Muslim communities. The police are doing this already, and have foiled many, many terror plots already. But some are going to go through unnoticed.

It's not rocket science. Radicalized Islamic fundamentalists are the perpetrators. Who is saying they're not?
Strange that in the BBC article (which also refers to other Islamic terrorist attacks like Westminster and the 2015 Paris attacks) they fail to mention anything about Islamic fundamentalism isn't it?

It's almost like they're afraid to call a spade a spade.

I'd be willing to bet that whoever did this is from the UK, and therefore wouldn't have had Reaper drones flying above them.
I'm willing to bet his name was Mahamoud or similar, he was from Birmingham, Rochdale or Leicester and he was known to the police.


or maybe he was one of those lone wolves again

the chemistry isn't that difficult, the implementation is, take glasgow airport bombs etc Doctors couldn't even manage to make viable bombs.

As a lone wolf this guy just downloaded the plans, made a bomb and got lucky at the first attempt? without making a load of test bombs, managing to distill the ingredients with no one noticing or smelling (and no one noticing the vast amount of raw ingredients he was buying) the list goes on.

I'd imagine it takes a fair bit of concentration, skill, intelligence to be able to make one without blowing yourself up or being caught buying the gear, a hell of a lot of forward planning (I understand home made explosives have a very short shelf life) all things a guy planning to blow up himself and a load of children would be in short supply of.

Correction: This type of terrorism is new to us.


Lets not make the mistake of thinking this hasnt been going on in other parts of the world for decades.
Sorry, but it's not even new to us. I, for one, am old enough to remember the bombing campaigns of the IRA in the UK. Different organisation, different justiication for their shameful actions, same dispicable methods.

Re: Explosion at Manchester Arena

Any evidence that the phrase "lone wolf" has been used concerning this atrocity?

As for this statement, you don't know what you are talking about.

Your comments and attitude are part of the issue. People are far too busy trying to be nice and make the world a peaceful place when in fact what is required, is every single known suspect needs to be either where applicable, kicked out the country or locked up in a a 6ft by 6ft cell with five of his mates, no tv, no smokes, bread and water for the rest of his live until he can prove that he should not be a suspect anymore.

many of the IRA's bombs where just big fireworks, I was in the building next door to one of their bombs when it went off years ago, first we knew of it was when the police evacuated us, just a big black mark up the front of the doorway, designed to get headlines and piss people off more then anything.

You'll never truly understand the sacrifices people made to ensure that we don't live in a country like that.
I am far more scared of the draconian new powers Teresa May will grant herself, than I am of some loser from Bradford who decides he wants to be a Jihadi.
