We only need to get it wrong once...

I'm beginning to wonder if our security forces are becoming stretched, through no fault of their own, but rather by the idiocy of politicians inviting in an alien and hostile culture amongst us. I do have a great del of admiration for some of the work the security forces do, though I believe that the best way to deal with the threats they face is at arms length, they should not really have to be dealing with the likes of this...
Britain faces a new generation of self-starting “Nike terrorists”, the security services fear, amid alarm over the speed with which a gang of home grown extremists were able to find and gain support for a 9/11-style plot from the “heart of the beast” of al-Qaeda.
The terror cell hoped to kill hundreds of people with eight suicide bombers, armed with guns, in what would have been the worst terrorist outrage on UK soil.
The ringleaders now face life behind bars after yesterday being convicted of planning a terror campaign. But the security and intelligence services are concerned how two of them, with no apparent previous links to al-Qaeda, were able to quickly make contact with the terror group’s international arm in northern Pakistan to learn how to make bombs and poisons. The plot – which The Daily Telegraph can also reveal the plot was personally blessed by al-Qaeda’s number five, Abu Zaid al-Kuwaiti, who was killed in a drone strike last year – was the most serious since plans to blow up transatlantic airliners with liquid bombs in 2006.
Yet it does strike me that if our idiot politicians hadn't invited them or their parents in from cultures which clearly cannot or will not integrate or adapt to ours then our security forces wouldn't have to be constantly on guard and infringing the rights of the ordinary man/woman on the street with various governmental schemes to further intrude into the tatters of our civil liberties.
Then again perhaps this is exactly what the government wants, or rather those in power over us which sometimes includes the government and politicians and sometimes not. After all, what a godsend islamics were to them, clearly deranged, clearly dangerous and hell bent on aggravating the indigenous population into accepting ever greater security measures simply to keep them contained. It's certainly one explanation for the deliberate appeasement of islamics and muslims combined with permitting known world terrorists to live amongst us and recruit from the islamic community. Add to this the constant attempts to increase their power along with abuses against the indigenous population followed up by heavy handed legislation in answer to the cries of 'something must be done' means that sooner or later the islamics will drive us into accepting something extreme one day simply to rid us of their idiocy. Of such nightmares Nazi type final solutions are born and I have a sneaking suspicion that might be the end game plan. Someone rising up after an atrocity and herding us all into making the sort of diabolical mistake that still haunts Germany.
If I'm right then the islamics are playing right into the hands of those who wish to have control over every aspect of our lives, they'll pay the price as the majority willingly accept the cost of ridding us of them.
I hope I'm wrong, but even I can see the problem here and can't think of a civilised solution, not one that will work now.

I can't see a peaceful end to all of this either. Previous issues of racial tension (the problems of integrating the West Indian immigrants for example) have eased over time as the immigrants became more part of the nation as a whole. The idea of discriminating against a British born black man who lived next door became ludicrous when you were there on the terraces every weekend cheering another one on to win the game for your team.

But here we have an immigrant population that is getting more and more isolated over time, not less. The children are less integrated than the parents and grandparents. The lines are diverging, and there seems to be no way of bringing them back together.

I note that the BBC reported that three British men were caught. This adjective is becoming a synonym for those that ethnically and culturally aren't. One just knows that reports of a British couple being shot in Pakistan will more likely relate to a family argument than intrepid travellers rubbing up the natives the wrong way.

It wouldn't be so bad if our media were consistent: remember this report? "Single young Norwegian man from Oslo accused of attacking left-wing training and indoctrination camp". No? Accurate? Yes!

I live in an area with lots of tourists from around the world and we also have our share of foreign students and immigrant workers. Why is it that most of them blend in, the differences only being apparent as they pass close by and I catch a foreign word or visage? The exceptions all come from the same sub-continent. They dress differently and inappropriately. They strip out front and rear gardens of their houses to create arid courtyards which are swept by elderly women bent double with a handful of twigs. Integration or invasion?

Immigration versus colonization is the real difference

Looking at the press reports of this particular "plot" I reckon it's what Bruce Schneier would call " movie plot threat".

In other words one that could only work in the fevered imagination of your average plod, or the world of a politician itching to impose more restrictions and more spying on the population.

Incompetent nincompoops doesn't even come near. My cat is more of a threat than these pathetic specimens.

Someone it taking the proverbial.
