Remember all that talk in the aftermath of the Manchester terror attack that 3,000 jihadists are living freely and walking the streets of Great Britain?
In case you missed it, Great Britain’s The Daily Mail reported on 23 May that the British police are having a dickens of a time attempting to “monitor a flood of radicalised men and women in their teens”.
It was further reported that of the 3,000 jihadists living it up in Meddy Olde England, the coppers are complaining of being “stretched thin” keeping tabs on all those baddies.
As it turns out, the Bobbies were just slightly off on their numbers. It seems that 3,000 Soldiers of Allah residing on This Sceptered Isle is incorrect by nearly 700 percent.
The Times of London is reporting that the latest estimate is somewhere around 23,000 jihadists are in-country. As reported;
About 3,000 people from the total group are judged to pose a threat and are under investigation or active monitoring in 500 operations being run by police and intelligence services. The 20,000 others have featured in previous inquiries and are categorised as posing a “residual risk”.
Now that Britain is in a weird quasi-state of martial law, the question of history repeating itself is at least being whispered by some in the beleaguered West would ever fall back on the age-old tactic of ensuring one’s enemies wake up dead.
As the idiom goes, “waking up dead” is pretty much along the lines of “Youz better stop bothering Carmine Gagliardi’s sister, or youz might wake up dead.”
While Great Britain is roughly the size of Oregon, there was a time when the British Empire controlled one fourth of the planet. And the tactics employed then are most certainly considered controversial by weak-kneed individuals, especially when viewed through the eyes of Presentism.
Needless to say, regardless if it was the British Raj in 1860, the Transvaal in 1901, or Ulster in 1975, those deemed a threat to the Empire often found themselves waking up dead.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m not Brit-bashing, I’m just citing historical fact.
And it certainly wasn’t just the British that engaged in such. Every superpower’s covertly whacked their enemies, just as every two-bit dictator certainly never held back on expediting the expiration of foes.
But as I noted at the beginning of this article, our British friends have 23,000 known jihadists in their midst. While the morality of ensuring one’s opponents wake up dead will always be debated, it’s a fair bet that political correctness and Islamophobia-phobia will win the day in Britain.
After all, it was the British government who told one of their own MI6 agents that there would be no terminating the life of al-Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki “because assassinations are a breech of British law.”
Never mind that al-Awlaki masterminded the deaths of Britons, both military and civilian.
The same way the British government deploying thousands of troops while the same government knows exactly where all those jihadists are is at its very essence, just window dressing.
Whitehall will do nothing of substance, all in the name of “diversity”. Perhaps when the British get tired of picking up bits and pieces of what were once young children, maybe them the Brits will take the Islamization of their country seriously.
