Skip to comments.Woolwich attack: troops advised not to wear uniform outside bases
Posted on 05/23/2013 6:31:08 AM PDT by LSUfan
Commanders have advised troops not to wear uniform travelling to and from work or outside bases following the brutal killing of a member of the military close to Woolwich barracks.
Defence sources said the order had been given that uniform should not be worn by those travelling alone, or on public transport as a "common sense precaution" immediately after the killing.

Rather than the presence of uniformed soldiers being treated as a preventive against jihadist violence, it is now understood to be a provocation.
This is what happens to a state that is UNDER OCCUPATION. The jihadists can wear their "uniforms" without any prohibition - full Shariah compliant physical appearance, and socially enforced hijabs for the women - and can impose their force without sanction against their community at large. But the occupied state's domestic police and military are now even more limited in what they can do.
I totally agree that this is akin to being under occupation. Maybe non-Muslims should avoid going outside of their homes.
Muslim scum just doing what the liberals wish they had the nerve to do.
The Brits are insane.
Soldiers should be able move about freely, in uniform, with firearms at the ready.
Common sense would be to issue hand guns to the soldiers, not slink away into civilian clothes.
Bizarre how the first cops on the scene were unarmed and had to wait for “special” armed officers to arrive. Unreal!
So bow down and do the bidding of the headchoppers.
In a sane world, all the headchoppers would be kicked out. in the current insane world, the innocent people bow down and kiss headchopper a$$.
Cowering in submission -dhimmitude. The Muslims should be cowering in fear of having their heads mounted on pikes; instead the police are deployed to prevent alleged anti-Muslim reprisals.
Woolwich attack: troops advised to be fully armed outside bases.
Why not? Are they sissy afraid to shoot these bastards while wearing the uniform of their country?
I would make sure they go off base with at least one fully armed uniformed buddy, and kill these bastards if approached. Yee Gads! When will this end?
Disgusting. Disgraceful surrender to the muzzies.
In 1982 a West German colonel told me he wore civvies while driving to the local Bundeswehr base & then changed into his uniform. Greens & other radicals would hurl rocks at his car otherwise.
This in a country where the Polizei are armed & carry submachine guns in their car trunks.
They should wear their uniforms and sidearms. Don’t these people realize that every time they give in a little, it’s a victory for those who hate them?
They didn’t act this crazy when the IRA was setting off bombs every week.
Every patriotic Brit refusing to take a dhimmi stance ought to don a uniform and march onto Downing Street demanding this administration quit sharia appeasement in all it’s forms.
All Muslims should be provided with one-way air transport back to the ME. Landing rights will not be necessary. They will be deposited on the country of their choice from 5,000 feet AGL.
That is the key point. Soldiers should be required to be armed, and they should be free to wear the uniform or not at their discretion, or perhaps encouraged to wear it. When some sixth century moron with a knife is looking for an easy target, he should be afraid to go after a British or American soldier with a gun, instead of giggling over the fact that soldiers are hiding from him. The strategy of hide and cringe reminds me of a mailman dealing with a barking dog - the more times the dog barks and the mailman acts afraid, the more aggressive the dog gets. We need a better strategy than cowering in fear.
Membership in the UKIP will explode after this outrageous incident. Had this happened two weeks ago, they would be in charge of the government there.
Yeah, when did the Brits become French?
“The Brits are insane.”
No, Churchill is dead, and the Brits are a much lesser breed...especially the men. The woman who stepped off the bus to confront the Muslim murderers and the woman police officer who shot them are the new face of British resistance to evil. The men have surrendered.
“Soldiers should be able move about freely, in uniform, with firearms at the ready.”
They’ve issued a cowardly Stand-Down order.
The better choice would be to REQUIRE them to wear their uniform AND ARM them.
A soldier does not need to wear a uniform to recognize he is a soldier.
The PM didn’t make international comments every time something happened either.
You can’t even have a firearm on base, in the US.
Quote from one of the attackers:
“Remove your government, they don’t care about you.”
Exemplefied by the government’s desire to keep folks from being able to protect themselves.
Without an equalizer, it’s “might makes right”.
The Changing of the Guard in Blue Jeans should be quite inspiring/. I award PM Cameron a White Feather.
Why advise your troops not to wear their uniforms? For heaven’s sake.
Warn the citizenry that this type of activity will not be tolerated, and then put some teeth into it.
This is like retreating on your own soil. I’d have none of it!
Try moving on a US base with a weapon if you aren’t a cop or on your way to or from the range.
Fort Hood, as you may recall, Maj. Hasan was the only armed man there, until cops arrived. . .
This is ridiculous. In addition, the soldier who was killed wasn’t even wearing a uniform.
The Muslims were hanging around near the gate waiting for someone to come out, and he walked out wearing the equivalent of a “Wounded Warriors” tee shirt (no uniform) and they attacked him and cut his head off while the rest of the Brits stood by watching.
Well, no, a group of women did try to help him. But the men present didn’t intervene and in fact obligingly took photos of the killers at the request of the latter, nobody came out from the armory, it took the police 20 minutes to get there...heck, why not just hand the country over the Muslims right now?
They need not worry about being dropped from 5K feet AGL. . .
After all, they will live or die, as Allah wills. . . (evil grin)
Should they refrain from speaking English in public?
This is an unstable situation. Western men are going to "snap" en masse.
“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, neverin nothing, great or small, large or pettynever give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
How the mighty have fallen.
Any active duty military person above the rank of corporal should be given the same rights and responsibilities as a police officer. Open carry or Concealed carry should be mandatory. They should receive all the training they need to be responsible keepers of the piece.
So soldiers have to hide the fact they are soldiers in order to control the whacked out Muslim killers,,and the UK is ok with this? I am thinking the U.S. is not far behind.
THAT was the response “after the attack”???!!!?!!!??
Troops not wearing their military uniforms will be viewed as a sign of weakness by Islamists, as though the infidels are caving to violence. I would go in the exact opposite direction. I would have the troops wear their uniforms with one badge that says “Infidel” and another badge of a cartoon head of Muhammad. If safety is a concern, I’d allow the troops to carry their military grade guns and to shoot first and ask questions later if a non-true Englishman becomes confrontational.
“The woman who stepped off the bus to confront the Muslim murderers and the woman police officer who shot them are the new face of British resistance to evil.”
Reason: Women don’t want to have their clitoris and vaginal lips hacked off and then be crammed into a burqua.
British men are now whimps, disarmed one, too.
The recent elections were for local offices. The next Parliamentary election will be in 2015.
Londonistan caves. Again.
They behaved as the liberals have trained them to behave. They waited for the government to come and help them.
If this happened in North Carolina, the cops would be late to the citizens response on the street. The attackers would be dead.
Sadly, I must disagree. Western men of today are much like a herd of wildebeests. When one or two predators attack a wildebeest herd, the herd could easy charge the predators and trample them to death.
But that's not what the wildebeests do. Instead the herd scatters in every direction.
I might be wrong, but I think the Western Europe acts this way because of the effects of WW II. Hitler ruthlessly destroyed many minority groups. Now no one wants to even criticize a minority group.
As do I...
As does this order in GB. Lose the uniform rule! Issue sidearms instead.
If I were Cameron...the answer would be..
Travel in groups of 5... locked and loaded..ferret out any Muzzies and shoot on site.
The members of the IRA are sane.
How about wearing their full uniform, sidearm included?
