How to deal with lone wolf Jihadis – Part 1

Security around the Duchess of Cambridge appeared to have been stepped up as she was guarded by Taser-wielding personal protection officers.

Her Scotland Yard bodyguards, including those in plain clothes, were seen wearing the controversial stun guns for the first time in addition to the conventional firearms they usually carry.

The officers were also thought to be wearing stab vests.

Onlookers noted that there appeared to be more back-up officers and police outriders accompanying Kate than normal.

I wonder why that may be?

With the level of threat from international terrorism in the UK classed as severe, it is clear that the Metropolitan Police are taking no chances with the six-month pregnant duchess and other senior members of the Royal Family.

There had already been high-level talks about issuing members of the Royalty and Diplomatic Protection Squad with Tasers following a series of security alerts.

Stab proof vests, Tasers and conventional firearms are needed today, but they weren’t needed a year ago.

I wonder what has changed?  Can’t be anything to do with radical Islam.  The main stream media keep telling us that’s not a problem.

Perhaps Part 2 will provide us with more clues.

    If one of these Jihadi nutters had a go at one of the members of the Royal Family it would be an ‘own goal’ of monumental proportions.
    The Back Lash against Muslims in the UK would be of Tsunami proportions.

    • Will Travers

      Thankfully security has come a long way since the days of Franz Ferdinand. But as you say it could well spark off a large conflict as well as a national backlash.

      • conwaycaptain

        I think that if this happened the back lash would be against Muslim populations across Europe as the UK RF are held in v high regard.
        There would most probably be a huge exodus if Muslims back to Pakistan, Nigeria etc.

        • Cadwallader

          The Queen is the Head of State of Nigeria is she not?

          • conwaycaptain

            No they have a President. Basically she is HoS of UK, Canada, Aus, NZ and few small Island states in the Caribbean.
            She is Head of the Commonwealth but when she dies it is not written in Stone that Charles will be. There was a thought that if she died when Mandela was compus mentis still that he would have been.

          • Cadwallader

            Thanks. As Mandela has pre-deceased Her Majesty who will be Head of the Commonwealth? Interesting to surmise. There’s nobody here in NZ fit for the purpose.

          • Angry Andy thinks he could take a shot at it ……

          • Mark

            That is disturbing news on many levels,now I really do hope Helen gets the UN job.

    • STAG

      That doesn’t mean the horribly deluded and twisted “British” terrorists won’t do it. The royals are an impediment to their ultimate goal.

      • conwaycaptain

        Unlike many other Heads of State whose families do not serve in the Military as they would be in danger!!! of the current Members of the UK RF The Queens served in the ATS during the war, Philip was in the thick of it, Battle of Matapan, Charles served in the RN, Andrew in the Falklands, William as a SAR pilot which is very hazardous and Harry in Afghanistan so they are a tough bunch of cookies.

        • STAG

          Unquestionably they are! But the world now faces an enermy that was last dealt with by crusades and the forced eviction from mainland Spain. They are a savage people and the laws of modern warfare based on mutual respect don’t apply any longer. They have no respect of anything we hold dear. Knocking over a pregnant royal would hurt us as a nation and hurt is all that counts for them.

          • conwaycaptain

            now they have to fight a 5th Column entrenched in their countries

        • Cadwallader

          …and Princess Anne rode a horse to success at the Montreal Olympics. They don’t sit around on their chuffs as do the evil Imams!

    • symgardiner

      The poms would run every muslim out of of the UK. But that would just be for starters. Such an act would be like 9/11 was to the US. The UK would take the fight to the likes of ISIS in a big way. People forget that the UK, while having reduced its military significantly over the years, would be quite capable of wreaking any country bar the big nuke countries. That includes Saudi and Syria.

      • Cadwallader

        From that point of view it may have a worthy dividend, though perish the thought!

        • dgrogan

          It’s the sort of thing conspiracists would blame the CIA or MI5 for.

          • Cadwallader

            You’re right. Well Lee Harvey Oswald is in the clear.

    • OneTrack

      Are you sure? Are you really sure? The poms seem to have drained the progressive KoolAid barrel.

    • intelligentes candida diva

      It shouldn’t need to come to that. There are sufficient examples now to say this is not a squabble over a game of tiddly winks or some theoretical academic debate, the evidence is there in UK > 20 months after Lee Rigby and there have been so many calling cards……so when will The West play their hand

    • Thersites

      Yes, there would be a firestorm of angry tweets and there might even be graffiti daubed on a few mosques.

      The Brits have been taking it up the Khyber for so long, they wouldn’t know what to do.

    • shykiwibloke

      That is precisely the goal. These nuttersjust grow if we ignore them, and grow faster if we fight back. They are hoping for serious backlash so they can justify an escallation and draw in all ‘islamic’ countries into the battle.

  • intelligentes candida diva

    The minute I began reading the thought that popped into my head was how does all this affect a The Duchess as a mum at a personal level. I imagine she and Wills are super protective of their tiny innocent one.
    Increased security yet claims of no threat very interesting msm need to stop being ostriches ….get their head out of the sand then do some research !

    • Huia

      I wonder if their security ‘spying’ has alerted them to an attack on the Royal family hence the extra security around the Duchess which the msm are playing down. I wish they wouldn’t, I wish they would tell it like it is.
      They followed the head in the sand scenario over the Jewish people being slaughtered in the second world war, but people are more informed today and needed to be treated as well informed intelligent (for the main part) people instead of being force fed tripe.
      Forewarned is forearmed and it is the very western world and our way of life which is in danger.

    • Phoenician

      I don’t think it’s the sand their heads are wedged in

    • Luis Cannon

      Research is for the intelligent. Now that the unintelligent have gained control of the MSM they believe that they can pander to the lowest common denominator and still come across as credible to most of the community. Cheaper and easier to bake puff pastry than serve up a full course dinner.

  • Hard1

    Quote from the French Prime Minister…

    “It is very important to make clear to people that Islam has nothing to do with ISIS,” Valls told me. “There is a prejudice in society about this, but on the other hand, I refuse to use this term ‘Islamophobia,’ because those who use this word are trying to invalidate any criticism at all of Islamist ideology. The charge of ‘Islamophobia’ is used to silence people. ”

    He is right. “We refuse to renounce our critical spirit out of fear of being accused of ‘Islamophobia’, a wretched concept that confuses criticism of Islam as a religion and stigmatization of those who believe in it.”

    The use of the word ‘Islamophobia’ was designed to deflect attention away from the goals of Islamists: “It denies the reality of an Islamic offensive in Europe all the better to justify it; it attacks secularism by equating it with fundamentalism. Above all, however, it wants to silence all those Muslims who question the Koran, who demand equality of the sexes, who claim the right to renounce religion, and who want to practice their faith freely and without submitting to the dictates of the bearded and doctrinaire.”

  • OneTrack

    Ok, a “severe” threat has apparently been received, and, even then the protection people only get tasers. Can’t be too mwean to the terrorists.

    • Rightsideofthebed

      No – the taser is for dropping that young arab looking person running up to the Duchess – who happens to be a Conservative voting fan – bit hard to apologise with a 9mm hole in them

      • Mark

        When the only tool you have is a hammer,problems tend too look like a nail. I can think of a few scenarios when a Glock might not be the best solution,thou I can of course think of many where it is a very good solution.
        Thankfully I only have me & mine to look after so most of my choices were made a long time ago.

  • HR

    Tasers are useless in protecting against terrorists, but you could paint the grip of a Glock yellow and just, you know, pretend its a taser to satisfy the idiots who complain.
    168 grains with a hollow point at the end will be a lot more effective than a few thousand volts to a protection officer.

    • ex-JAFA

      Especially as an electrical charge might be all that’s needed to detonate a wired waistcoat. If the person is close enough to want dropping, they’re probably close enough to accomplish their objective.

  • timemagazine

    The Muslim extremists are the one who want to kill us and the moderat Muslims want the terrorists to kill us.

    • Another Middleagedwhiteguy

      Yes, the unarmed Liberty ships in the convoys across the Atlantic were just as much part of the war as the anti-U-boat Liberators patrolling the skies above.
      And the “moderate” muslims are just as much part of jihad as the fighters and the imams they send money and encouragement to.

  • sandalwood789

    A lot simpler and more effective to ban Muslim immigration in the first place.

    “Prevention is better than cure” and all that.

    • Another Middleagedwhiteguy

      Second part of their takeover plan is to out-breed us.

      Four wives with 8 to 10 kids each (oh sorry, only one wife by New Zealand law, #2 is the cousin, #3 is the wife’s friend, #4 is the wife’s cousin, and . . . .)
      And new immigrants are just a bonus.

  • mike

    Unfortunately its nothing new. The Royal Family are high profile people therefore are high profile targets… and as such are attractive to terrorists who would gain a lot of media attention which helps them spread fear which is what they want “if we can get them we can get anyone”.

    There is enough to think about already when faced with a potential lethal threat without deciding what weapon is appropriate for the situation. IA drills do not need this level of complication. Anyway, I see he is wearing my old school tie, so his loins are girded already, so to speak.

  • kehua

    Soft hands on that bloke, hope he knows how to shoot.

  • Mikael Baker

    Keep talking crap about the Muslims.

    Keep using Freedom of Speech to incite Holy War.

    That’s the best use of Freedom of Speech, isn’t it?

    You nerds need to realize, it’s just like in the playground, talk s***, get hit.
