    "The sad thing is trash like the likes of Trump, Farage and Le Pen see this as something to really get their teeth into."

    My hope is that the deer-in-headlights mainstream parties will figure out exactly WHY the populists are able to get their teeth into these ongoing attackers. And then respond in new ways -- such as public consultation (perish the thought!) -- that take the teeth out of the populist platform.

    "Have you ever lived in Britain"

    Yes, I have. I've also been back about 20 times since.

    "The same kind of treatments what Caribbean people experienced."

    And yet they're more than happy to stay. Because they know for whatever "injustice" they get in UK -- like their free house in Maida Vale not being big enough for their 7 member family -- they still know that secular Western UK is a million times better than the sad, intolerant and backward societies they left. And when their sons commit mass murder against UK citizens in the name of their alien God, we're supposed to be understanding and sympathetic. No way.

    "Some of the children born in Britain have become jihadist, a very low percentage"

    True, the foot soldiers are few at any given time. There are many, many more sympathizers, as the Salmon Rushdie case showed. UK police said 3 years ago they'd thwarted 40 serious Islamist plots in Britain. I guess the number is now, what, 60? It's a constant intensive war the UK must fight against a segment of its own population.

    "They start to strike out at the injustices."

    Research finds ZERO correlation between radicalization and socio-economic background. They can be rich, middle class or poor. They can have loads of white friends or none. Or some.

    Jihadi John, to name only one, was from Maida Vale, who lived in a large house the state gave his family for FREE. His mother received state benefits for FREE. He had a very good university education, presumably paid for by the state. How much is a country supposed to do? Oh, the injustice!

    He is one of a long list I could give you. It's all about an intolerant, medieval, revengeful creed.

    "Ahh, so we just need to stop all immigration everywhere"

    No, but stop the open-door policies, which allowed in wanted terrorists (true) and other non-integrating undesirables.

    Not all immigration policies are the same. There are smart policies and there are dumb, irresponsible policies. Even Blair and other European leaders have admitted that "serious mistakes" were made in their countries' past policies.

    Nigel has a point, even if you can't fathom it.

    "You can't blame this on immigration no matter how hard you try."

    Does he have an immigrant background? If so, then yes you could.

    "Less than 0.005% of the UK 3 million Muslim population are in prison for terrorist related offenses"

    Most get killed on battlefields in Syria, etc. or by their own bombs. Never heard of suicide attackers? Khalid certainly wont be going to jail. No one was jailed for 7/7, the worst violence on British soil since WW2, because the Muslim community refused to cooperate with police.

    "How exactly would immigration control have stopped this attack?"

    We don't know his background yet, right? Well, nearly all the jihadi attackers in UK and Europe attacks are done by people of immigrant background. Tighter immigration policies over the years could well have prevented many if not all the major attacks.

    It's funny how the multi-culties play up the London mayor's "immigrant background," but when people from the same or similar communities blow up the underground or whatever in the name of Allah, suddenly the "immigrant background" factor disappears from the discussion. Hypocritical much?

    " All of his criminal past was before he became religious "

    Nonsense. Investigators identified him a few years back as a "peripheral" figure in the Jihadi movement, and he was known and investigated by Mi5 for "violent extremism."

    "Perhaps you should bother to look up exactly what these offences are in the UK."

    Yeah, just a regular bloke with anger management issues, eh? LOL. Well, a regular bloke who was on Mi5's radar for his extremist behavior. Yeah, whatever you say.

    "Not a prerequisite, precursor or defining factor in any way whatsoever."

    Weapons possession? Nah, course not. Why would an aspiring terrorist ever want to have access to weapons.

    "More violent criminal than jihadist."

    Assault, weapons possession and public order offenses. Yep, no way a self-respecting Jihadi would ever engage in those activities, eh? LOL.

    Britain has so many potential Jihadis there is no way the police, with their limited resources, can put a finger on every single one.

    Assault, weapons possession and public order offenses don't sound out of line for a future Jihadi, if you ask me.

    "Terrorism is the war of the poor,"

    Osama bin laden wasn't poor. In fact, he came from one of the wealthiest most privileged backgrounds imaginable. Many, if not most, Muslim jihadi leaders are from wealthy or middle class backgrounds. The London attacker was apparently an English teacher.

    Get a new narrative, once that matches reality.

    ”One of the big reasons why Europe is experiencing this terrorism is because of the bombing of muslim civilians by the west.”

    Most of the West's airstrikes are against ISIS, and the rest target other combatants, so ISIS doesnt wipe out another Yazidi village and enslave the girls. Or against the militants in Afghanistan who want to blow up schools where girls can get an education.

    Russia and Saudi Arabia are killing way, way more Muslim civilians. Your "rationale" is totally lame.

    "...... accusations afterwards that Belgium had become a “failed state"

    The administrative center of Europe is indeed a "failed state." Belgium is going to be in an official state of emergency for the rest of our lifetime. It simply doesn't have the resources to deal with the crisis created by its irresponsible, open-door, multi-culty immigration policies over the past few decades.

    "Funny how Vancouver, Canada didn't get mentioned."

    Indeed, I visit Vancouver and Singapore on a regular basis. I spend about twice more money in Vancouver than in Singapore.

    Vancouver has become little more than a repository for foreign multimillionaires, so what do you expect.

    "but obviously in crises such as heart attacks or strokes, conventional medical treatment is a must."

    In other words in the cases that allow us to determine whether a medical treatment actually works or not. Yep, on that account "traditional" treatments fail miserably. No thanks!

    "No. Let's just learn to live with nature, already"

    Clocks are not "nature." Living by a set of digital numbers is not "nature." They are humans' doing. DST is a way of adjusting clocks so the sun's movements are better aligned to human activity. Wake up near or shortly after sun rises, go to bed not long after the sun sets.

    How hard is this for people to figure out?

    "I`m merely quoting former Nieman Fellow at Harvard, James M. Scott."

    True, but you left out his conclusion:

    “…the Doolittle raid was a pinpick. But, as history has shown, those 16 bombers delivered a disproportionate punch—leading America to celebrate its first victory of the war, the Chinese to mourn a quarter-million dead, and the Japanese to blunder into defeat at Midway.”

    Indeed, the Doolittle raid was part of a series of episodes that led to Japan's defeat, something ALL of us - including today's generation of Japanese - have reason to celebrate.

    Before the Doolitle raid, the Japanese civilian population saw war as only happening in foreign countries, and thus enthusiastically supported Japan's military campaign overseas, horrific as it was. It was thus crucial for the Allies to bring the war to the Japanese people on their home turf for the psychological effect. The Doolitte Raid did this.

    Post-surrender in both Japan and Germany were astoundingly successful. That would have never happened had not both those countries be punished by relentless bombings. The WW1 surrender, by contrast, was a failure, because the German homeland never experienced the horror of war. So when Hitler launched the new adventure a short while later, the German people went along with it. The Allies didnt want to see a repeat of this.
