Blips on the Screen: 16 Apr 08

30 Terror Networks, 200 active plots and 22,000 Individuals being monitored in Britain

Cross posted from Wake Up America:

The headline basically says it all.

BRITISH police and security agencies are monitoring 30 terrorism plots, Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said in extracts of a newspaper interview released today."We now face a threat level that is severe. It's not getting any less, it's actually growing,'' she said in an interview to be published tomorrow in News of the World."We task the police and the security agencies with protecting us ... There are 22,000 individuals they are monitoring. There are 200 networks. There are 30 active plots,'' she said. Prime Minister Gordon Brown's Labour government is seeking to extend pre-charge detention of terrorism suspects to 42 days from the current 28-day limit.

Add to that the people here and in the UK that wave away terror threats and act like they aren't a problem, really!!! Since the beginning of 2007, 57 people have been convicted on terrorist plots. Britain's Home Secretary Jacqui Smith, says, "Nearly half of those pleaded guilty so this is not some figment of the imagination. It is a real risk and a real issue we need to respond to."

Half the people in the US have there heads planted so firmly up their butts they simply say, "move along, nothing to see here".

Too bad the Government is obligated to save their worthless hides along with those of us that understand the real threat of Islamic Extremists.

A comment from Radarsite: Those figures DO say it all.
Here's what gets me. We write about how we should be getting scared, we back up these pronouncements with undeniable facts, respected political figures and experts talk about how we should be getting scared, everyone 'in the know' agrees that we ought to be getting scared -- BUT WE'RE STILL NOT GETTING SCARED.

I'm getting sick of asking what it will take. I just can't comprehend this almost universally pervasive state of denial. I hate to bring up that obvious question again, and get the ACLU all bent out of shape, but -- If we can monitor them, why the hell can't can't we shut them down? Where's the will to pass the necessary legislation that will finally protect us? God only knows

Till then, I suppose all we can do is keep trying. As you are doing Susan with shocking -- or what SHOULD BE shocking -- articles such as this.

Good for you for still trying.


  1. Make no mistake, Islamic Jihadists are just waiting for right time to strike again. If not in the US, it will be in Europe. France hasn't taken a hit yet, and 8% of the French population is Muslim.

    Plus Muslims don't believe that 9/11 happened. Witness the latest ravings from the Iranian lunatic, Ahmadinejad.

    "Four or five years ago, a suspicious event occurred in New York. A building collapsed and they said that 3,000 people had been killed but never published their names," Ahmadinejad told Iranians in the holy city of Qom.

    "Under this pretext, they (the US) attacked Afghanistan and Iraq and since then a million people have been killed only in Iraq," said Ahmadinejad in the speech broadcast live on state-run television.

    The full story is here:

    And a list of the names of those who died are here:

    Make no mistake about the war this world is in. It has been going on for the last 1400 years and right now Islam is winning. But with God's help, the West will come out victorious.

  2. I'm afraid my fellow British countrymen, in the majority, are still asleep to the extreme danger and threat to our way of life. Even after the 7/7 London Tube bombing and the attempted Glasgow attack.

    The Liberal-Left as usual prefer to blame and attack what they know, which is the US, instead of what they choose not to study and find out about, which is Islamism. It's far easier for the 'revolutionary' (as they like to call themselves) mind to do away with research and bark up the wrong tree.

    There is a growing tide however, of people waking up, so all hope is not lost.

  3. Thank you both for your always intelligent responses. I agree with everything you said Findalis. I usually do.

    Beaman, you bring up a great point: study. My opinions about brain surgery or computer programming are almost valueless. Because I haven't studied these subjects and I know nothing at all about them. I just don't belong in any intelligent discussion about these particular subjects. But I willingly admit it -- as, I think, would most of us.

    But somehow, when it comes to Art or Politics and a couple of other subjects, we suddenly get all multiculturalist about it -- all opinions are somehow to be of equal weight, regardless of our own particular ignorances.

    Before 9/11 I had no strong opinions about Islam. After 9/11, I started studying Islam. I began with the Qur'an and went from there. I am still studying Islam. And now I do have strong opinions on this subject. But they didn't come from nowhere, and they are not borrowed from someone else.

    Why do people still find it so difficult to admit that they don't know what the hell they're talking about? Why do they persist in believing that their sacred opinions have some inherent value to society just because they are their sacred opinions? Why do they think that in these crucial arenas they can somehow circumvent the necessity of 'study' and blabber on about what we should or should not be doing?

    It is certainly no coincidence that the most knowledgeable people I have had the pleasure of meeting in my life have also been the most humble about the scope of their knowledge?

    Study Islam and learn the threat.
    It's as simple as that.
