    How horrific those poor people.


    The security services have a good record.

    Security services foiled more than 12 UK terror attacks last year, Defence Secretary reveals | The Independent

    however its impossible to stop determined terrorists.

    You just need to remember the words of JFK

    Protecting the President - TIME

    "If anyone wants to do it, no amount of protection is enough. All a man needs is a willingness to trade his life for mine." So observed President John F.Kennedy less than a month before his words came tragically true.
    And this is the best protected person in the world.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    We disagree on many things - but there will always be more that unites us than divides us - nice touch from our EU friends.

    Anyone found doing this sort of thing deserves shooting.

    I've read stories in the past of police tracing people who post dodgy stuff on twitter etc. Why can't we trace this? Get around there and arrest them.

    Yep - I had something in my eye about that time too...

    If you'd been paying attention you'd know that some of the attacks were foiled precisely because the security services had intelligence supplied to them by the community.

    So, supporters (no indication of their location) of an organisation that encourages this kind of attack are celebrating the attack. Thanks for that information.

    If they're in the UK, then they will be traced and arrested. Read the article carefully. Any hint that they're UK based?
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Hold that thought...
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”

    Pretty sure they are tracking all of them they can, the more that break cover the better.

    I'm sure they are. Imagine they're overrun following individuals of interest.
