This has been breaking around East Anglia all day. It seems that two dark skinned men attempted to abduct a serviceman who was jogging near the base last night. Looks like an attempt to repeat the Lee Rigby outrage.

There's already a thread about this on the Mil-Forum.

I'm cynical and suspicious about the whole thing.

I think when the dust settles we will find out that the victims name was:

"Walter Munchausen".

That thought had occurred to me also, don't you think though that the RAF will have this one covered? There are usually clues with Walter Mitty characters and I would have thought that a psychiatrist would be brought in straight away.

Why is there an automatic assumption it is terrorist related? In the absence of any evidence why is it not assumed to be a motiveless beating up or attempted arse-banditry for instance, or a myriad of other random crimes?

para - as stated I see nothing but an assumption based on no evidence there, I rest my case.

Why the heavy type? Lee Rigby wasn't involved here - ????

Wageslave,

Of course it is an assumption, but you can't blame people for making that link.
