The British government and their incompetence is being exposed by these Manchester attacks many are claiming false flags but even if you do not believe that these attacks are false flags the blame still has to be aimed at the British government and their war on terror. Would these people have died if the British government tried a more sensible approach to tackling terrorism? Instead of their plan to fight terrorism using terrorism. We may never know the answer to questions like this but we do know that there have been much more casualties and death caused by the policies of the British government than casualties and death caused by Islamic terrorism.
Our government have reacted with shock and outrage concerning these attacks and they would have a right to react like this because the attack was unbelievably cowardly, shocking and wrong. But the British government have also conducted, supported and even funded unbelievably cowardly, shocking and wrong attacks themselves. Terrorism has not stopped they’re support for Israel and Saudi Arabia both nations have taken part in attacks on civilians of other nations (Yemen and Palestine) the British government have choose to overlook these acts of terrorism.
When I was walking through town today at 11 o’clock the whole town stood silent for one minute in order to show respect for the people that died in the Manchester attacks. I stood silent with them but I couldn’t help but think we never stand silent for Palestinians, Libyans, Syrians or for the people of Yemen, we simply carry on our lives and ignore them and the terror these people face on a regular basis. Why not? They’re still people, women and children are massacred in the name of peace but somehow we ignore these injustices.
Now the government have deployed up to 5000 armed troops to the streets of the UK, they say this is due to the Tory cuts after they cut the British police numbers by 20000 people. Its a bit of a joke with many on Facebook about how these cuts have backfired and led to the Conservative party actuallt depending on armed forces to do the job of the police. Maybe the incompetence of the British government is to blame for this but that does not change the fact we have armed troops patrolling our streets. Has any Prime Minister since World War 2 ever deployed armed troops to the streets of Britain? Not to my knowledge (other than Tony Blair in 2003 to intercept an airline but that was not to this scale.)
If the British public are willing to give up freedom in the name of security we are going to end up disappointed because we are most likely going to lose both. In my opinion the British troops should be sent back to their homes, if the shortsighted beyond belief British government need more police they should employ more police, as long as we have armed troops in our street we are at risk.
