ISIS supporters vote UK top target as terrorists 'warn of London attack'
"The message translated to: "The beginning lies in Paris and Brussels... And in London, we shall form our state.'" Feral men who hate themselves beyond measure, want nothing more than to murder, injure, and destroy, if they cannot achieve their goals because of the incompetence of their beliefs, they will make sure no one can achieve their goals. These men are the same as the low life losers who when they fail, turn and murder their families "just because." They are deeply jealous of the success of others, and cannot believe their wonderful ideas never bear fruit.

"One tweeted: "The Islamic State will attack London, Washington, Rome and all the infidels' capitals."
Another wrote: "The Crusaders are blundered and confused. Yesterday Paris, today Brussels, and they don't know where will be the next attack.'"
So, we know the plan, widespread terror, utilizing asymmetrical paramilitary attacks. And the response? "This comes as teams of special forces troops are going undercover in London and throughout the country with more military support in case of an attack.
All main airports throughout the UK have been given additional police patrols and armed response units are on high-alert for a call to tackle heavily armed terrorists.
Police presence has been increased at train stations across the capital, including Waterloo and Kings Cross St Pancras, and specialist units have been deployed to Dover."
So, somehow symmetrical, concentrated defense is to combat asymmetrical warfare? It cannot, it will fail, badly, unless the British are willing to hire armed men to stand on every street corner, 24 hours each day. That is a bridge too far, it cannot happen, and so the asymmetrical attacks will succeed.
There is only one way to combat an asymmetrical attack, asymmetrical diffuse defense. And this can only be accomplished by allowing a significant part of the population to be armed, and to act as an unseen line of defense.
The US allows this and this likely accounts for the reason why the US accounts for such a low terrorism position.
If you are comfortable, obtain your Concealed Handgun License, provision an appropriate handgun, train, and become proficient, and carry, every day. Such asymmetrical defense is the only way to defend against the asymmetrical terrorist threat.
"A source said: "Britain has never been at so much risk of an attack and everybody believes it’s now a case of ‘when’ it’s going to happen and not ‘if’."
A crackdown on firearms has also been ordered by the National Crime Agency over concerns a similar gun assault could hit London.
But despite multiple threats from terrorists in Syria, an unnamed government minister said the UK was well prepared for such an attack."
This is a joke, the Brits cannot even keep their own in-house criminals from committing crimes, and murders. Why will the British anti-gun laws work any better than the French, or Belgian laws? Wishful thinking is not a policy. Disarming your law abiding population nearly ensures success for the asymmetrical attacker.
Good luck Europe, you will need it.
