France24 ^ | 16April2012 | France24

AFP - Britain will mount its biggest peacetime security operation for the London Olympics, with "lone wolf" attacks causing most concern but a range of other threats also under surveillance.

A security force of more than 40,000, backed by a huge intelligence operation, will guard venues, athletes and the millions of visitors expected to throng the British capital.

it sounds cold and callous to say it, but I kind of hope something does happen. I know people will be killed and injured and that will suck. but maybe, just maybe, someone will wake the F**k up and realize what they've allowed to happen to their country and its total surrender to the bad guys.

The Olympics got attacked by terrorists already, and that did not wake anyone up.

Even the Olympic Park bomb, although that was a domestic non-Muslim bomb, did little to concern people.

I would not consider going to London during the Olympics for any reason. As an athlete, I know the Olympics is a life’s dream, but I’d give serious thought to going there to compete as well.

I had to read that one sentence 2x; I thought it said, "...and the millions of visitors expected to thong the British capital."

Me very bad.

So what if the Olympics are attacked by Muslims? Who here seriously thinks anything would happen because of it?

4 HMVEES - 2 Dillons and 2 M2’s

Post up at the front of those demonstrations, put the weapons to work and no more worries. Repeat as often as possible to they all go home.

But you can leave a few around, because some of the food is good and some of their women, who long for the “western life” are gorgeous(ie watch any lebanese soap opera and you’ll see what i mean).

Just sayin’

Huh? Actually, its a very minor threat if at all. Typical crime is more of a problem than movie plot terrorism. Not to say it wont happen, but its very minor. As for waking up, Britain will be a Muslim country eventually, simple demographics, but that is a different wake up.

Hmmm. I wonder what those “lone wolves” will have in common?

one never knows. I’m sure they will all be described as being their “own little snowflakes” without anything common amongst them.

All those “lone wolves” that coincidentally happen to all be committed to being down with the jihad!

My comment, likely to be scrubbed, at that disgusting display of pisslam cowardice, wholly exposed and eclipsed by that girl's outstanding fortitude:


islamic barbarity is anathema to civilized humanity.

Britain !  Re-arm your citizens and drive the filth from the nation of my ancestors !

"Everything I needed to know about Islam I learned on 9-11"

Islam is NOT a religion .. it's a civilization-destroying, genocidal, mysoginistic, political death cult - Moham was a pedophile & 72 virgins is the masturbatory fantasy of perpetual adolescent cowards.


<dream sequence>

Our domestic Pisslamists, along with the Newkkks and their allies, light it off over here all at once, only to be met with extermination in one decisive 'summer of rage' - OURS !

</dream sequence>
