TERROR ATTACKS IN LONDON: A RECURRING DECIMAL WITH NO END IN SIGHT.
ICHEOKU says paraphrasing Houston we have a problem, London indeed has a problem. Islamist terrorism problem that is; and so far there seem to be no fix it solution. Regrettably too, those Islamists terrorists are winning the war because any one life they take is a life too many. A matter made worse because they have no value for life and they do not care if they live or die; provided they claim other innocent people's life in the process to their fabled martyrdom.
This is the big elephant in the room problem which the West, particularly Britain, has not figured out yet the best approach to tackling it and it is affecting the society in so many ways than anyone can imagine. It is damaging the psyche as it is eroding peoples confidence both in themselves and the security agencies in their ability to secure them from such vagrancy. It is also effecting business and commerce as people are afraid to carry on living with their normal lives, not knowing when and where another one of these mad men would rev a vehicle behind them and mow them down. Yes, they are bleeding Britain and they will bleed it to submission baring a decisive action to say such arrant nonsense would no longer be tolerated. It is time to take this fight to the terrorists and stop waiting for them to strike first because offense is the best form of defense known to man and British government should gear up and man up and take this fight to these urchins.
ICHEOKU says the reactive fire service approach, usually after the fact, is not enough nor sufficient and does not cut it. Lives lost cannot be restored and the apprehension amongst the general public is real and it is one big downer in any given free society. Therefore the authorities must do whatever it takes to peremptorily nip the plans of these animals in the bud; rather than to respond, regardless of how timely, after they have visited their havoc on both the body and the mind. Whatever it takes including arming Londoners and other British public who wants to bear arms in self defense of their society. Imagine what would have happened had any of those people on the sidewalk of London bridge had a weapon, they would have stopped these mad dogs right on their tracks or even the restaurateur or any of those dinning there when they struck. If it means reining in some rights and freedoms as well as other civil liberties, so be it; but whatever it takes to take away the shine and glory of success which prompts these marauding beasts to continually stage these attacks which is now becoming rampant.
Alternatively, the politicians in Westminster can create another anti-terror squad agency with about 100,000 armed civilian guards to always patrol around major streets and neighborhoods that could be easily targeted by these munchkins. Or just permit any British citizen who wants to pack heat to so do and with special training on how to use firearms allow these civil defense force protect British citizens and their visitors. Now six more people are dead with forty eight others wounded and this is coming merely two weeks after the Manchester Ariana Grande's concert attack in which twenty two other people were bombed to death including sixty six others that suffered shrapnel wounds. That no top government official has yet resigned or even the chief of the police or other security agency chief charged with securing lives and properties of British people is beyond ICHEOKU. If they cannot do the job for which they are employed, their offices let another take. Enough of these maddening mayhem that is somewhat assuming near permanency.
The British government can also take a page from the Israelis and start deporting family members of any terrorist out of Britain and back to wherever the hell hole they came from. If they are property owners, either demolish their houses or impound and auction them off as it does not make sense that these terrorists can plan and execute their hideous acts without anyone of their family members having a whiff of it. People might cry foul, people might complain and shout themselves hoax; but actions determine reaction and if they don't want such far reaching measures, let them rat these terrorists in their midst out before they go on their deadly rampages. It is about time enough really become enough and the time has since come to call this beast by its name. But hey, when Londoners elect a Muslim as their Mayor, it simply says they have thrown up their hands in surrender and technically acquiesced to the new normal, their new way of life of living amongst Islamist terrorists who gladly do them harm and as often as they want. Pitiful and pathetic. ICHEOKU's heart goes out to those six killed and wish those wounded quick recovery.
