Britain’s “spirit will never be broken… terrorists will never win and our way of life will always prevail”.
‘Our (politicians) way of life’ is instrumental in creating terrorism. Fear is the intended outcome.
Firstly, her policy of treating us all like terrorists, storing our digital history, allowing GCHQ or it’s foreign affiliates to spy on us, at an unprecedented level hasn’t, and will not work. Maybe it wasn’t supposed to and was only ever being used as a useful tool for advertisers to target us more efficiently.
The stunningly ridiculous claim that ‘terrorists will never win’ is going to sound extremely hollow to the 22 victims families and the dozens injured in last nights attack in Manchester. Any victim of terrorism that survives won’t be consoled by May’s default response to this kind of crime. It’s tired, well worn and in reality, she couldn’t care less about the victims. The politicians are the last people to be affected by these kind of event’s.
The murderer that carried out this atrocity didn’t have to entice (literally) starving kids towards him with sweets.
…..Which is what happened during the evacuation of Foua and Kefraya a few weeks ago. Sixty eight young children were slaughtered by the ‘resourceful’ suicide bomber who took advantage of the fact that they had been living under siege for two years and had been severely deprived of food. A more despicable crime is hard to imagine but there was no international condemnation from May or her government. Trump didn’t tweet about those ‘beautiful, beautiful children’, it didn’t get mentioned at all. The atrocity just a few days before at Khan Sheikhoun was the catalyst for 59 cruise missiles to be fired on Syria, without a shred of evidence who committed it. The reason for the discrepancy?
The murderers of the 68 children are on ‘our’ side.
Crocodile tears from Theresa May won’t hide the fact that she was responsible for those deaths by supporting any enemy of Bashar al Assad. The White Helmets are allies to the suicide bomber that wiped out 68 young lives and the UK government fund them.
Unless we, the people, start to make our own politicians accountable for our criminal behaviour abroad, we will always find ourselves at risk of these kind of terrorist events on our own soil. A mother in Syria feels exactly the same pain as a mother in Manchester. The biggest irony of all this is that the perpetrator probably identifies with ISIS, the people WE are financing to topple the Syrian government. The very same people that destroyed the lives of 68 mothers in Syria.
My sincere condolences go to the victims of ‘terrorism’ everywhere and if I were religious, I’d pray for them, but we don’t need to. We just need to make our politicians accountable. If we want to remain safe, our influence should be used to heal, not harm.
Different reaction from the US when it’s their allies who are doing the the killing.
No media mention of 200 missing women and children kidnapped by ISIS/Al Nusra in the Foua attack.
There were more deaths from the the Foua attack in Syria than the alleged Khan Sheikoun chemical weapons strike a week earlier. Even now, a day or so later, the true number of victims isn’t known. We had four days of wall to wall coverage that included statements from a disgraced former doctor accused of terrorism offences in the UK (Shajul Islam) and the completely unsubstantiated lies from the White Helmets.
Donald Trump bombed Syria, even though he didn’t (and he still doesn’t) have any evidence at all that Syria (or Russia were involved). Just before he bombed Syria he was empathising over ‘beautiful babies’, even though in that very attack he killed four children. Isn’t this baby beautiful enough for you Mr Trump?
Shahed is one of the luckier ones that escaped death AND the kidnappings that took place during the aftermath.
The mainstream media are keeping quiet about the circumstances of this attack on the people from two pro government villages in Syria (they had no choice because ISIS and it’s cohorts regard them as un Islamic). They have been under siege from the terrorists for over two years and been struggling to survive. Many of the children won’t have eaten properly for a very long time, which is why the sick bastard that committed this crime used sweets and crisps as a magnet.
Suicide bomber attracted dozens of kids towards him and his bomb laden truck, before igniting it.
These are the actions of a despicable organisation and yet Trump and previously Obama have both bombed Syrian soldiers in coordination with them. Don’t bother looking at mainstream news for coverage of this event, they are keeping it as low key as possible. Everything points to our governments and the slave like news agencies concealing the fact that WE are supporting the likes of ISIS and Al Nusra. WE (our governments) are complicit in killing innocent victims that are actually being protected by the Syrian government and that includes Bashar al Assad and his British born wife, who the media have decided should have her citizenship revoked.
If we want to find reasons to take UK passports from people, we should start with our own politicians, news paper owners and TV companies. They all sing to the same tune and in doing so are not enhancing our reputation abroad and actually create terror attacks with their treasonous behaviour. Have you noticed that they all support UK aggression on other nations? Have you noticed how they all use the Union Jack flag to get people to take pride in our military action overseas, even though there is no threat to us? Neither Saddam or Gadaffi were threats to us. In fact the exact opposite is the case. We are more likely to be victims of terrorism now than when they were both in power. The removal of al Assad and his government will exacerbate the problem even more. All three ‘supposed’ tyrants offered their people free healthcare, free education and subsidised housing. All three countries are now destroyed beyond the imagination.
The UK has been involved in all three crimes, along with the cheer leading media. That means we have been helping Al Qaida, Al Nusra, ISIS or whatever they are called to murder hundreds of thousands of people who had done us no harm. It’s time the decent people put a stop to it.
Pro-government captives being rescued from under terrorist siege aren’t as news-worthy.
This exchange of several thousand people under siege was always going to be difficult. The deal was brokered by Qatar and Iran, on behalf of each side. Qatar has been a major sponsor and supplier of terrorist groups that have been tormenting the Syrian people for over six years. Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad had previously rejected a Qatar request for a pipeline across Syria, in order to supply the European market with gas. This would have affected current Russian monopoly of the energy supply but I don’t believe this is the reason Russia accepted the request for help from the Syrian government. They have been long term allies anyhow.
The reason that the media have no interest in these victims is because it won’t be in President Trump’s interest to bomb Al Qaida/ISIS, after all he is on their side. The MSM (mainstream media) filled the pages and screens with images of dead children when the chemical attack was claimed to have killed them. Now it is a terrorist suicide bomb, they aren’t bothered. Even if Assad had attacked Khan Sheikhoun, it was at least a military target. The attack on the evacuees from Foua was certain to kill many women and children. There are stories coming out already that this was a sophisticated plan and also of White Helmet involvement. Equally disturbing is the fact that the process appears to have stalled.
The terrorists have the upper hand in every respect. They aren’t under any legal obligation regarding war crimes. Westerners aren’t allowed into rebel areas without risking a cruel death. Incidents accusing Assad of war crimes cannot be verified but the media clearly support terrorist explanations and repeat them incessantly.
Anyone who buys a newspaper (I haven’t for a long time) can refer back to the recent headlines with the chemical attacks and compare it to the evacuees bombing. Without looking, I can guarantee a vast difference in reporting levels, even though the nearest most of these reporters get to the crime scene is in the safety of Beirut.
I would urge people to disregard the Western mainstream media and search out the many impartial, independent news websites. I am finding it’s not just what the MSM do say, it’s just as important as what they don’t say.
