200 suicide bombers 'planning attacks in UK'
The Sunday Telegraph ^ | 08 Oct 2011 | Sean Rayment

Posted on 10/09/2011 11:45:30 AM PDT by george76

At least 200 potential terrorists are actively planning suicide attacks while living freely in Britain, intelligence chiefs have warned ministers. A senior intelligence source has revealed that the figure is a "conservative" estimate of the threat facing the country from UK-based Islamist suicide bombers.

The would-be killers are among 2,000 extremists who the security services have said are based in Britain and actively planning terrorist activity of some kind.

The figures are contained within a secret government report on the "enduring terrorist threat" facing the UK from al-Qaeda and affiliated organisations,

...

Earlier this year, classified intelligence documents disclosed by the whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks, showed that MI6 officers believed that Britain was facing a wave of suicide attacks from British-based Muslim extremists who had been trained in terrorist camps in Pakistan.

One report quoted an MI6 officer's briefing to US officials in which he said: "The internal threat is growing more dangerous because some extremists are conducting non-lethal training without ever leaving the country. Should these extremists then decide to become suicide operatives, HMG [Her Majesty's Government] intelligence resources, eavesdropping and surveillance would be hard pressed to find them on any 'radar screen'."...

The terrorists are learning all the time and adapting their tactics. They now operate a cell structure and there security is very tight.

...

suicide attacks had developed as the weapon of choice for al-Qaeda and its supporters because of the level of fear that such attacks can engender.

The report cited examples of past suicide attacks which were perceived by the organisations which mounted them as having produced successful outcomes, such as the Beirut barracks bombing of 1983 which was followed by the withdrawal of US forces from Lebanon.

Immediately followed by a request for more money to counter the 200, 300, 400 potential attacks.

More muslims, more terrorism.

Radical islam is an insane murder cult, moderate islam is its trojan horse.

“The report cited examples of past suicide attacks which were perceived by the organisations which mounted them as having produced successful outcomes, such as the Beirut barracks bombing of 1983 which was followed by the withdrawal of US forces from Lebanon.”

And their current goal is the forced withdrawal of all non-Muslims from the UK...

Where are they getting their training, and who is backing them with money and equipment(explosives).

Al Quaeda is a generality used so that certain countries and Islam cannot be blamed, But these countries are supplying training and equipment, and Islam is involved.

The British are a patient people and they have put up with Muslim atrocities for a while now, but if, say 50, suicide bombers hit England, the descendants of WW2 veterans are going to wake up and shame on any Muslim they come across.

The same may be said for this country,we have put up with these SOB’s so far because of the librals and the ir PC BS, but if wholesale killing starts there are going to be a lot of missing Muslims. If they start a shooting (bombing)war in the near future,a lot of people are going to forget Englands and America’s penchant for do-gooders and peaceniks, and left wing lovers of Socialism and take this mess in their own hands.

IMO the worst thing the Muslims could do is launch suicide bombers in England and America before they have a voting majority.They are going to get a lot of innocent(if you can call any Muslim innocent) Muslims killed.

Read the report again. The primary goal here is to endure a terrorist threat not to stop them.

Note the title:
"enduring terrorist threat"

More than likely a comparable number right here in the U.S.

Meanwhile, the idiots at the TSA continue to search old women and kids as they board the nation’s airplanes.

It is long past time that everyone with half a brain (i.e., most people) acknowledge that Moslems are the problem and the problem demands a solution.

I disagree completely. The Brits are through in my estimation. The only testosterone left is with the soccer thug. The British Citizenry is unarmed and is simply not capable of standing up to the Muslim thugs. The typical British Male is a sissified type. Exceptions? Yes, plenty but not enough to make a difference. The Brits today are simply not cut from the same cloth as those who stood up to the Nazis in 1940. I hope that I'm wrong and I will be more than happy to eat my words if it comes down to that. But my knowledge of the British Intellectual Class, the BBC and such is considerable and at this time I can come to no other conclusion.

Even if only 10% of the suicide bombers were successful, I wonder what the reaction of the British public will be.

You're quite right. I blame all those Mennonites. Let's put them all on the TSA watch list. I'd bet the whole racist bunch didn't vote for Dear Leader...

The UK didn't ask them to assimilate, to enrich their culture, or conform to their societal norms. They get this. An isolated hate filled murderous cult. I say let the ‘yutes’ deal with them. They will one way or another imo.

The would-be "killers" are among 535 extremists who the security services have said are based in the U.S. Capitol and are actively planning terrorist activity of some kind.

And the Brits think they have problems.

My favorite is the TSA sexually molesting those with a TS security clearance. Apparently the extensive FBI background investigation isn't trustworthy enough to be able to board an airplane (whereas the Director of the Smithsonian Institution can actually pack a firearm on any aircraft), but is trustworthy enough to be allowed to work on nuclear weapons and missiles that can take down aircraft.

Moslems are the problem and the problem demands a solution.

You are one word away [final] from revisiting the 1930s

Man, I wish we could figure out who is responsible for all these terrorists attacks. I suspect white, conservative Christians...they are all so angry, always demanding that the government be accountable and responsible.../s

I tend to agree with you Scotty. None of our respective countries are of the same character as we were in those days. I take no satisfaction in this. I'm saddened by it. In all of our countries it's the product of 60 years of liberalism. But there is one fundamental difference in the US vs Canada and the UK. We are armed and heavily armed. Now forces on the left are trying to reverse this but I don't think they are gonna be successful. If push comes to shove, US patriots will take up arms against the terrorists. I hope it doesn't come to that.

Attempting to read into the text a comparison between Jews of the 1930s and Moslems of the current decade is an act of idiocy.

But you weren’t attempting to do that, right?

You are correct. Even in the propaganda film "Der ewige Jude" between depicting the Jews as rats and inhuman, the film makers, in the attempt to create an atmosphere of class warfare threw up 1930's versions of Power Point slides showing how wildly successful the average Jew was, dominating all the professions and running most businesses. This is the total opposite what we see from the bastard side of Abraham's children in today's Europe.

But that wasn't what I was pointing out. The idea of looking for a [final] solution to rid society of a demographic, a process usually called "genocide", won't win you humanitarian awards. Tongue in cheek, I was pointing out that you were one word away from recommending box cars and acid showers.

But you weren’t attempting to do that, right?

Just as you weren't recommending genocide.

Its a frustrating reality that seems to beg for thinking the unthinkable - even though history demonstrates that purges and genocide is almost always the way this "problem" is handled.

Wonder if the Crusaders in medieval Palestine, or the Spanish overwhelmed by Moslems, speculated about the niceties institutionalized by modern etiquette.
