Hoodlums Howling Allahu Akbar Hack British Soldier to Death on Busy Street in London

Details still coming.  Headline has the key points.  Prime Minister Cameron cuts overseas meeting short to return home stated there are strong indications the attack was terror related.  Victim was not wearing a uniform but “Help for Heroes” T-shirt.  Muslim Council of Britain immediately condemned the attack.

My heart, as I’m sure most SOFREP reader’s hearts, reach out to the family.  One can’t help but notice the huge differences in the quick British government and Muslim community reaction to this barbaric attack.

    Tango9 Ishaan MR151 Txazz  Of course. With the gun free zone sign outside my house, I can surely expect any self-respecting robber/murderer/rapist/psychopath to listen to his conscience and not use guns while invading my house. And the knives/hatchets/machettes/chainsaws that they will use to hack me to pieces is not a major concern, compared to keeping my home a gun free zone.

    Ventoux France has been having nightly Car Torch parties for years now.  Denmark recently had a spate of vehicle torchings and promptly ticketed the vehicle owners for parking violations... /facepalm.
