Approximately thirty miles outside of London in the city of Luton, four men were arrested today on suspicion of plotting terror attacks in a raid conducted by national anti-terror police.The Daily Mail says, “Scotland Yard announced that the men, who are in their 30s, were being questioned in London over claims they were ‘involved in the commission, preparation and instigation of acts of terrorism’.
Searches are being conducted at seven separate addresses in Luton in connection with this investigation. A number of vehicles are also being searched.The Government has vowed to step up its counter-terror operations in the wake of the murder of 130 people in Paris by ISIS-linked terrorists on November 13.
David Cameron claimed recently that a total of seven attacks on Britain had been thwarted in the past year thanks to the security services.
Parliament is due to vote today on whether to extend airstrikes against ISIS into Syria, where the terror group has its base, as part of the global war against jihadist violence.”The Mail says these arrests were not related to the Paris attacks – which to me is even more worrisome. As LTC (RET) Allen West says, we are fighting a multi-headed hydra – cut off one head, and five more sprout in its place.
We have no idea where these cells will pop up next. And as we reported yesterday, our president seems hell-bent on importing more and more potential (or current?) jihadis to our soil. Of the 132 Syrian refugees admitted since the Paris attacks on November 13th, all are Sunni Muslim, and the majority are men.
Anyone want to start a pool for when our next attack will be? It’s a grim game.[Note: This article was written by Michele Hickford]
