Exactly who would be fighting who here?
There's probably at most only a few thousand people in the country who believe in this kind of stuff, and they can easily just pretend they don't for a while if they're at risk.
I don't think a few thousand versus "everyone else" really constitutes a civil war.

Or if it does, it'd be a really short one.

Killing the Queen is one of the few ways they could create a solid consensus in this country for inflicting tremendous damage on them in retaliation, without achieving any strategic or military objective of value whatsoever.

Note this story is talking about orders coming from Syria.

You are vastly underestimating the reaction I think

Well at least we know where we're going to nuke should this scenario occur.

You can't be serious? :eek: You'd nuke an entire country (of 22 million people) just because a tiny fraction of the population decided that they wanted to kill the queen?

Well it's going to get invaded then. Unless we're going to abolish consequences.

What are you talking about? :confused: You said that we should nuke Syria, not invade them? Have you changed your mind?

Besides, why would we bother invading them anyway? Is the death of the Queen so important that we must go to war with another country?

Yes, but that's like saying "Atheists murdered millions in the Holodomor". Technically true, but not very helpful. "Jihadists" would maybe have been slightly better .

So do you still want to nuke Syria, or what? Why is the queen so important that we must attack the whole of Syria?

(You keep ignoring my questions and respond using very vague statements)

Wow that'd be some sweet entertainment if they pick the opening of the Commonwealth Games, I've a decent seating position for that.

In the fantasy of the far right, an attack by extremists on the Queen would lead to an uprising from the majority of Britons against Muslims, smashing Muslim properties like Germans did to the Jews in Nazi Germany, hounding them out of the country.

I expect the unpalatable truth for the far right is that, in the event of that attack on the Queen, there would be some small scale outbreaks of rioting from the EDL/BNP types and a few attacks on mosques, but not only would these not be supported by the majority of the British people but also the establishment would be strongly condeming these 'revenge attacks', including all major political parties, and the British judiciary would inflict harsh sentences for anybody that posted hate and threats of violence against Muslims on twitter/facebook.

Also the number of British people trying to declare war on all random Muslims would probably not even be as large as the number of British people who started coming out with lines like "the monarchy are just parasites anyway".

And given the state of cuts to the military, I'm not sure there would even be scope for a retaliatory war against a Middle Eastern country, unless the US was prepared to give us major military support. We could have a go at Iran and ask Israel for military support and probably find them accommodating but even there, beyond airstrikes its unlikely a long occupation eg Iraq / Afghanistan would be feasible.

You mean like how we invaded the Republic of Ireland because of the IRA? Oh yeah, right, that didn't happen.

I know this is crazy but, what if it actually happened? The whole western world, and the UK in particular, would be furious. Intolerance for Muslim would rise to an unprecedented level. Attacks on Muslims would be seen across the world. So it makes me wonder, why would these men in Syria want to kill the Queen? She doesn't make any decisions in this country any more. So, if you wanted to get rid of the Muslims in this country, what would you do?

Could it be because our monarchs are related to European monarchs and consequently to the tribes of Israel?
