A third attacker was caught in connection with the London Bridge attack (see also MSNBC Scared of ‘Overreaction’ to London Bridge Terror Attack and UK Prime Minister: ‘Too much tolerance of extremism in our country…’). Which means this isn’t a “lone wolf” it’s a pack of them. As wolves often are.
Before you ask, no, he’s not a Methodist. Yes, authorities ignored warning signs.
British police on Tuesday named the third of the jihadis who killed seven people in a knife and van attack in London, and an Italian newspaper said he had been flagged to Britain as a possible militant by Italian authorities.
Wow, even Italy flagged him as a possible baddie. Yet the boffins in the UK took him in. How’s that multiculturalism working out for you fine people?
That was the shot. Now enjoy the chaser…
British police said the third assailant was Youssef Zaghba, 22, and that he had not been a subject of interest for them or the MI5 domestic intelligence agency.
But Italy’s Corriere della Sera reported that Zaghba had been stopped at Bologna airport in 2016 when trying to fly to Syria via Turkey, and that Italian authorities had identified him as as a potential “foreign fighter” and tipped off Britain about his movements.
For historical context, the United Kingdom used to be a massive, global empire that gave absolutely no f*cks whatsoever. They were the authority on everything. Now? Italy is telling them they have a bad egg on their beans and toast. But the UK waves Italy away. Go eat your superior cuisine and let the Brits handle this tosser. And by “handle” we mean allow him to commit terror while we make hashtags. God save the Queen.
Does NO ONE in the UK notice a pattern here?
3-attackers were known to agencies
4-pls don't backlash
5-now's not time for action
6-life back to normal

To be fair, it seems the UK is taking baby steps in the kind of right direction. At least that’s what they’re virtue signaling. Prime Minister May said “we need to take Islamist extremism seriously” which is a start. Name thy enemy and what not. The question is WHAT WILL CHANGE to make it happen? What are the leaders in the UK (and all of Europe) going to do to protect their citizenry from the clear and present danger of “Islamist extremism”? Read Dear World Leaders: Stop Appeasing Islamic Terrorists. Start Killing Them. Now.
Maybe Theresa May should take a cue from this SAS badass: British SAS Commando On Terrorism: ‘Drag Them Out Of Their Beds.’
No, unity concerts are not the answer. #OneLove my ass.
