London terror attack: Four dead and 20 injured

http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-39359158

In case you haven’t heard, there was another terrorist attack today in London, leaving behind five dead so far and 40 injured. Not much details yet but apparently an SUV was used to plow people and a police officer was stabbed to death.

A few thoughts:

1)Be prepared. Carrying an EDC bag with Celox gauze and tourniquet may seem excessive.. that is until you’re bleeding to death on the sidewalk.

2)As for strategic relocation, it’s yet again another main capital that got hit. NY, London, Paris. Im not saying don’t go there, just be a little extra careful and if possible don’t live in key terrorist target locations.

3)Awareness. When I lived in Buenos Aires I made sure not to wear any headphones. In places with such high crime you need all your senses. Listen to screams, quick footsteps behind you, speeding cars, even shots. In this case a speeding car may have been heard, and someone listening to music may have been completely unaware of it until it was too late.

4)A machine that weights half a ton or more and can move at +100mph can be a terrible weapon. We’ve seen it before with even worse results and we’re likely to see it again. A car, let a lone a truck, in a crowded area can be devastating.

5) The ISIS terrorist magazine “Inspire” tells its followers to do attacks exactly like these. Grab a big car and just plow people. Its easy, simple and any fool can take numerous innocent lives with this kind of attack. It’s reasonable to expect more of these kind of attacks in key western cities.

6)Not pointing any fingers at anyone, or yes maybe I am, but why is it that when terrorist attacks occur there’s always a “religion of peace” representative involved? Just saying.

  1. Hi FerFAL, thanks for the great advice. I am a regular visitor to your site. Regarding point number 6, I don’t think it is fair to say that when terrorist attacks occur there’s always a “religion of peace” representative involved. Just look at the recent terrorist acts carried out by Anders Breivik in Norway or Thomas Mair in the UK. Extremists of all persuasions are a threat to us all and so we always have to be on guard. Also, I am from the UK and I know from experience that the majority of Muslims abhor such acts carried out in the name of their religion and would inform the authorities immediately if they were able to prevent a terrorist act and bring terrorists to justice. We even have a Muslim mayor in London doing so right now. The mainstream media may portray a particular group as our enemy when in actual fact they may be people we should work with for the greater good. Terrorists have no religion or morals as far as I am concerned and represent no one but themselves. I think that as survivalists we should always think outside the box in these matters
