Some crazy shit went down on a street in London a couple of days ago. A spectacular act of terrorist theatre played out to mobile phone cameras and social networks. Live and direct, images that didn't need verification. A soldier was run over by a car and then hacked to death by a couple of terrorists armed with knives, meat cleavers and an old pistol. Then the pair walked up and down the street demanding their pictures were taken and a message of why the did what they did was filmed by a passer by on their phone at the behest of one of the attackers. The men were also confronted by passers by who stood their ground. When the police finally arrived the two men charged at them and were subsequently shot and wounded.

Watching the news footage was like watching a film/TV drama.

Let's put the terror in perspective, this was no 9/11 or 7/7, only one person was killed, yet the perpetrators had the opportunity and chance to take out many more like the woman that confronted one of them. This was a targeted attack, with a purpose. The authorities are struggling to understand why the attack happened, even though one of the attackers told them in his video message “The only reason we have killed this man today is because Muslims are dying daily by British soldiers.” What is it the authorities don't understand, or is it that the authorities don't want to understand because that would mean they have to take responsibility for their actions.

What turns someone to carry out an extreme act of violence like we saw on the streets of Woolwich, London? It's the same as asking what makes someone join the army, were they will be trained to kill. You might as-well ask why does a teenager choose to become a knife wealding gang member?
A sense of belonging and purpose, power for the powerless. We all can kill if we've got the will.

There's no justification for beheading a British soldier on the streets of London, just as there has been no justification for British troops killing innocent women and children in Kandahar. Just whose blood is on whose hands. The soldier who was killed in Woolwich wasn't playing drums when he was serving in Afghanistan. The uncomfortable truth for the authorities to accept is that this attack happened because of ten years of Britain’s involvement in the war on terror. A war that has brought terror to the streets of London once again, just like the politicians were told it would when they first embarked into their endless battles against Islamic extremism across the world. For every terrorist cell uncovered by the secret services, there are many more radicalised individuals who believe god is great and are prepared to do anything for their cause, especially when they see no change in aggressive Western foreign policy.

The two people were known to MI5, they were 'on the radar' and then somehow disappeared. Is this another case of letting something happen in order to achieve other ends.

Questions about the length of time (15-20 min) it took for armed police to arrive, just think how many more people could have been attacked during that time, also without that slow response the terrorists wouldn't have had the time to get their message across by getting people passing by to film them, this must have been part of their plan, because without that dimension this would have been nothing more than another stabbing on the streets of South East London.

This event will be used and manipulated by political powers to suit their own means and to further their own ends. Which will result in more shit happening!

If it's not soldiers in Muslim countries it is the International Jewish Conspiracy or the Great Satan or the Crusades or political cartoons...

These 21st Century barbarians will find any excuse to slaughter and murder. Until all the Jews, apostates, and Christians are wiped off the Earth this new breed of animal will find reasons to murder innocent people.

I don't for one moment want anyone to think that I condone this horrific act, but there is absolutely no point in Cameron-Boris-or-anyone-else just saying the attack was unjustified and in no way linked to our foreign policy, because in the minds of the perpetrators it was wholly justified, no matter how misguided, and entirely linked to our actions. This kind of "we're right, you're wrong, and we're not listening to you" will get us precisely nowhere.

I also now see that we're trying to get Google and whoever to block access to extremist websites... Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't we complain about China's state censorship of this kind, and yet we then want to do the same thing when it suits us?

The apparent swing to the right in this country will do far more long term damage to ordinary people than a few religious extremists will ever do. Time to wake up, people.
