    You're absolutely correct @Ken Anderson ...just as one of our columnists in todays' papers has written it...and I'm sure she speaks for all decent human beings worldwide regardless of their nationality


    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4534016/Katie-Hopkins-Manchester-Arena-terrorist-attack.html



    Enough...with ''carry on as Normal'''...Enough, with ''this hasn't broken us''... Enough with the platitudes....


    It's time to get ANGRY


    Get the hell on with it...and do something about this now...


    ...has Trump got a brother?...we need him here... because our weak lily livered politicians are spineless...and unwilling or unable to take care of this rampant terrorism themselves...

    These terrorists know exactly how to look and what to wear, etc. so that they seem to be just another "normal" person attending a concert, etc. Patsy. It isn't going to be easy to tell them apart from anyone else now days. Nor will it be easy to know where they will strike next. :(

    No necessarily that a back pack was worn. The Bomb disposal experts on the news said it could have been simply a jacket filled with the device, left lying on the floor of the foyer... What they do know is that it was High explosives...explaining that they know immediately by the colour of the smoke... High level Black smoke..low level white smoke..

    Yep - fair point, I'm afraid I would search everyone that didn't look right to me :rolleyes:
    But then, I suppose they would just blow themselves up anyway and me along with them !

    They've identified the bomber...

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/05/23/salman-abedi-named-manchester-suicide-bomber-know/

    He was born in 1994 in Manchester to Libyan parents.


    The suicide bomber who killed 22 people and injured dozens more at the Manchester Arena has been named as 22-year-old Salman Abedi, according to US officials.

    Born in Manchester in 1994, the second youngest of four children his parents were Libyan refugees who came to the UK to escape the Gaddafi regime.

    His mother, Samia Tabbal, 50, and father, Ramadan Abedi, a security officer, were both born in Libya but appear to have emigrated to London before moving to the Fallowfield area of south Manchester where they have lived for at least ten years.


    Like I said earlier....many terrorists are already in place! :(

    People do come together at these times, I was heartened to hear that cab drivers from as far away as Liverpool
    came to take people home. People came out of their houses to offer refuge to those that could not get home
    All transport was halted.

    Yes, I read about the cab drivers @Patsy Faye. Little things like that give you some hope ...but, still is painful to read about how young the victims were.

    Nobody should be a target of terrorism but it gets really ugly when it's kids. :(

    How can we stop it and why did it happen explained. If you take and destroy a person’s country and kill their friends and family, then feel companion and bring him into your country. How stupid cold they be especially if their religion calls for changing everyone to the same belief or killing them. Why we are in those countries destroying them is for another thread. For every dollar given to bring in and help these people could go a lot further in their own country. Send them home and help them in their country would be cheaper and safer for all.

    Yes, unless Trump is able -- and willing -- to put a stop to it, we'll have that here too. We already have, to some extent, although not suicide bombing.

    What has happened in Manchester is deplorable.
    It is not that far from where I stay in Preston.
    I don't want to comment anymore on this just now.
    Thank you for the kind thoughts and wishes to the bereaved.

    So many countries have shown massive support to our country since this deplorable murderous act... and may I thank all those countries for showing their support loudly ... and publicly...


    The famous Burj Khalifa Tower In Dubai was totally lit up with the British Union Flag.. and could be seen for many miles... The Eiffel tower, and the Colosseum turned their lights off in respect to the dead...Amsterdam displayed the Union Flag in front of their Royal Palace ... The New York Yankees stood to attention in silence to honour our dead, while the British National Anthem was played ..Belfast reflected all the Union flag colours on their City Hall...


    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...tribute-victims-Manchester-terror-attack.html



    On behalf of decent law abiding right thinking people everywhere may I on the behalf of all of us here in the UK...thank you for your support...



    Please let those same countries and more stand side by side with us to stamp out this totally evil regime that blights all of our countries and innocent people ...

    I do pray that this will be the last time the U.K. feels this kind of evil thrust upon your country.
    My prayers are also for those who are injured whether mentally or physically and especially for those who are left to morn the deceased..........God Bless.......Bobby

    They seem to think we are still under threat and hundreds of soldiers are now on alert
    Never known that :(
    They have made some arrests due to the incident, so maybe they found some information too

    I heard on the radio that the alert is at its highest level because they suspect another incident will occur. They also said that any functions which have large audiences will be monitored by trained soldiers instead of the standard door people.
    According to our news an arrest has been made....

    A lot of strange coincidence from this attack, just reading through the information given in the news. A 22 year old man killed 22 people on May 22, and it happened at just past 2200 hours.
    I don't know what all of that means......if anything, but it is odd anyway.

    Coincidences are fascinating Yvonne

    It is confirmed the guy 'was' wearing a back pack. So where was security ?
    No one should be allowed into a venue like that with a backpack !
    The most disturbing news is that police 'were' aware of this guy and - he had been reported to police
    at least 3 times from the public in the past year or so.
    Very disappointed to hear this - we are told time and time again, to report anything we consider suspicious
    and when we do ................. ignored :mad:
