Uk Government Issues Terror Attack Warning For Brits In South Africa Shopping Areas

Recommended Posts

The British government has warned there is a "high threat" terrorists could carry out "indiscriminate" attacks on British people in South African shopping areas.

The targeted areas are believed to be in Johannesburg and Cape Town where there is a high expat and tourist population.

How does one indiscriminately attack one particular nationality of tourist? Surely that calls for a fair degree of discrimination almost by definition?

These warnings are all part of the FUD about how we will not be able to protect ourselves if we vote to leave the EU.

And yet the Frenchman caught with guns and grenades was in the Ukraine.

The French Security services are saying the Frenchman busted in the Ukraine is an arms dealer and are investigating it as such.

French media reporting the same.

It seems it is only British media reporting it as a "far right terror plot"

Yep I heard that very quickly mentioned on some news last night.

Simple logic - if he was planning a far right extremist 'lone wolf' attack - why the ****** would he have all that gear !!

Just more chance of getting caught for zero reason.

He's not going to be running about with 6 rifles is he.

It all sounded very odd but the BBC's default setting is that anything bad is caused by a far-right extremist; followed by much quieter factual reporting when it is proven not to be.

That way people think that it's not just sunni muslims. When it is really.

Before the Foreign and Commonwealth Office went amber-red to warn british tourists about the risk of a terror attack in SA, at what level were the warnings given to tourists about carjackings, rape and violent crime which are far, far more likely to happen in the happy clappy rainbow nation that is South Africa?

South Africa is pretty dangerous anyway, in this case you are much much more likely to get murdered in a non terrorist way. Not that that would be much conciliation!

I'm sure you did.

The point I'm making is you have a far greater chance to be a victim of serious violent crime than be a victim of terrorism
