    I was in Borough Market a couple of days earlier meeting an old friend who was over from Australia. It's a busy, bustling place, popular with tourists, little did we know what would be happening there two days later ....

    Can't repeat too many times how twisted and sick this sort of ideology is to hate innocent people so much that that they would be willing not only to kill those men women and children but also kill themselves in the process. But these terrorists are not an army they are solo actors. And for all the carnage they've caused these incidents are few and far between and anyone's chance of not only being in the place of an attack but also at the time of an attack are almost non-existent. If someone wants to kill someone they will kill someone. It's important to keep working on not only counter-terrorism foiling of plots but to also find a way to break their twisted ideology. Iran is correct when they claim that Saudi Arabia is the main driver behind their mindset with Wahhabism and extreme sharia law. The US is complicit when we enable and placate Saudi Arabia

    You're right GordonGecko, both ISIS and Al-Qaeda are followers of the Wahhabi strain of Sunni Islam which is centred around Saudi Arabia, yet the US treats Saudi Arabia as a favoured ally. Doesn't common sense dictate that perhaps the Shia branch of Islam might be a better bet? Oh, I forgot the Saudi's buy $Billions of US weapons ..... silly me, it's all about big fat profits for the industrial/Military complex!

    Ironically, we are effectively giving them those weapons for free since they are purchasing them with the money we gave them for their oil
