Possible indication of an IS-coordinated international action?

Of course it was another Islamic terror attack. Who would have guessed? :rolleyes:

Some muppet being interviewed by the BBC kind of made it seem like the shooting was more of a concern than a knife-weilding terrorist marrauding about stabbing random passerbys.

Attacker Sudesh Amman had previously been convicted of disseminating terrorist material.#
https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...0811db2faf008e

This latest incident matches the previous major one (the London Bridge attack last November) in pretty much every particular. Both had been convicted for terrorist offences, both released, both tracked and carried out very similar attacks.

Pretty clear now that some form of internment is needed for Jihadis.

Apparently he has links to Choudary, too.

Sending them to regular prisons seems a really stupid policy. A specialist internment camp with properly funded facilities could attempt to change their minds and at the minimum, protect society from their activities. Letting people who behave like that out onto the streets on completing traditional fixed length sentences is absolutely barking.

That's pretty irrelevant.

As soon as someone makes the terrorist watchlist, they should be deported ASAP.

So the attacker had recently been released from jail for terror offences, serving half his 3 year sentence.

Causes of terrorism:

Allowing anti-British and anti-Western sentiment to spread, allowing thousands of likeminded jihadist to waltz through across Europe into the UK, not tackling the issue within the Islamic communities.

Glad at the time of the attack, undercover cops were already watching this guy to make his next move. But if they knew he was going to do this, why was he released in the first place?

My god - just 3 years for actively saying he was going to carry out a terror attack, having bomb-making materials, and having stocked up with knives ready to carry it out.

The application of the traditional justice system to the Jihad is proving to be as farcical as always seemed likely.

An interesting interpretation of the history of the Conservative Party. :rolleyes:
Do you recall the counter-terrorism strategies and tactics of the Iron Lady's Conservative government deployed against northern irish paramilitary terrorists?

Attack happened 140 yards from the former Streatham police station, now closed due to police budget cuts.

Pray tell how you would address this? Given its perfectly acceptable to hold said views and to say otherwise is more than somewhat dictatorial in a supposedly free country.
Equally, where do you think these jihadists came from? Pretty sure you can rather easily draw the line straight back to what the UK/USA did in '03 quickly followed by the **** up in Libya a few years later. Point being you should probably stop trying to blame the communities here and start looking closer to Westminster for the cause of this.

People have been serious injured and could have died. I don’t think it’s appropriate to make political point scoring points at this time.

These things don't happen in isolation, they have a political dimension and we should be free to analyse all aspects.
