Woolwich: 'Soldier Dead After Terror Attack'
Sky News ^ | 6:31pm UK, Wednesday 22 May 2013 | sky news

Posted on 05/22/2013 10:41:45 AM PDT by Eurotwit

A man reported to be a serving soldier is dead and two people have been shot in Woolwich, south east London, after what Sky sources understand is being treated as a terrorist attack. Downing Street has called a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergency committee after the incident in John Wilson Street, which David Cameron described as "truly shocking". Sky sources understand that senior police officers believe the killing was likely to be a politically-motivated Islamist terrorist attack. Dozens of weapons - including a number of knives - and pools of blood could be seen on the ground, where a man wearing a Help for Heroes T-shirt is said to have been attacked by two men.

Labour “Deliberately Engineered Mass Immigration”

by BDPAdmin on May 20th, 2013

At first I was amazed to read Labour peer Lord Mandelson’s comment in the Daily Mail that Labour had sent out ‘search parties’ for immigrants to get them to come to the UK.

His actual words, given at a rally for the Blairite think-tank Progress were: “In 2004 when as a Labour government, we were not only welcoming people to come into this country to work, we were sending out search parties for people and encouraging them, in some cases, to take up work in this country.”

This was a stunning confirmation that the Blair and Brown governments deliberately engineered mass immigration. Mandelson was New Labour’s spin doctor and a former Cabinet Minister, so he must have known what was behind this policy.

What could possibly go wrong?

[Meanwhile, all the moderate Muslims in the UK were against what their brothers did - but oh so silent.]

The reader should recall that everywhere in the world, Muslim population grows much faster than that of all other religious groups. It is mainly due to their planned and deliberate rejection of family-planning measures. It has been mentioned in an earlier article that the fertility rate of Muslim immigrants now living in Europe is 8.1 children per family while the figure is as low as 1.38 for other religious groups in European Union.

The UK is getting seriously screwed up.

There was a riot going on a while back where people were capturing images with their cell phone.

There was one store-front that had a broken window and a tiny flame you could have probably spit on and you could have put it out.

And then there were a series of images showing the small flame getting bigger and bigger, until everything in the display case was on fire, then the flames coming up the side of the building, and eventually the entire building burned to the ground.

And I thought- didn’t ANY of these morons that were taking pictures think to grab a cup of water and put that thing out when it was starting?????

Britain already has knife control.

Really.

“The law already prohibits the possession of offensive weapons in a public place, and the possession of knives in public without good reason or lawful authority, with the exception of a folding pocket knife with a blade not exceeding three inches.”

At least they were quick to label it for what it was.

Added to 'banglist' for two reasons:

1. The cops shot the perps.

2. If the soldier would have had a gun, he could have killed these two himself.

A good argument for concealed carry, if you ask me...

The UKIP party made huge gains in the very recent elections. Headed by Nigel Faradey (sp? I know that’s wrong) - a fire brand. Excellent news. This horrible terrorist attack will gain them many, many new members. Anti-EU, anti-Mozlem, anti-mass immigration.

I don’t know about everyone else, but isn’t it premature to call this an act of terrorism. Don’t we need a statement from Obama before we can go that far. I know this is Britain, but there really needs to be some guidance here.

LMAO

"A man reported to be a serving soldier is dead "

How can one be a soldier without having a gun or anything for protection?

What chances does a civilian have if a soldier can't protect himself?

Okay. Now, what comes of it?

You see, that’s the real kicker here. If some actions are taken to reduce the Islamic threat, great. You and I know that won’t happen though.

Nothing short of elimination the flood of Islamic adherents is going to eliminate this sort of threat.

And so this type of thing will continue to take place.

I honestly believe expecting something from these meetings is the real expression of ignorance.

***...after what Sky sources understand is being treated as a terrorist attack***

Didn’t Downing Street get the memo??? The standard line five minutes after the attack is that “Now, there’s no reason to think this is a terrorist attack”.

C’mon girls, let’s get with the program like those heavyweights across the pond...
