Machete attack in Woolwich London

UK news is reporting a fatal machete attack on someone who may be a soldier. The attackers were described to be "crazed" chopping at the corpse after it was clearly dead and dragging the remains into the middle of the road.
The then made no attempt to escape and allegedly charged the armed police who arrived on the scene 20 mins later.

Judging by reports, and I may be jumping to conclusions, but it does have all of the hallmarks of the style of the usual suspects.

News is breaking fast. Cobra has been assembled. A statement is expected shortly !!!

One witness, identified as James, said he and his partner saw two black men attack the young victim with knives, including a meat cleaver.

'They were hacking at this poor guy, literally,' he told LBC. 'They were hacking at him, chopping him, cutting him.'

Fighting back tears, James said the men treated their victim as a 'piece of meat' after he was dead.
'These two guys were crazed,' he told the radio station. 'They were just animals. They dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road and left his body there.

What nice people. Driving round - as a matter of course (?) - with knives, a machete and a revolver.

El Grifo:

From what I gather on this side of the Atlantic, it seems the two culprits ran over the British soldier with their car, got out and hacked him to death with a "machete-like device" and then beheaded him.

It's being labeled as a "terrorist attack."

Okay. Machete-like device, beheading and terrorist attack. I'm sure the loathsome culprits aren't native Norwegians.

Looks like my initial leap to conclusion was right.

Not a difficult leap and no surprise.

Apparently the perpetrators filmed the attack shouting out the well known war-cry, Alluah Akbar

Terrible really !

From the reports coming in, their actions sound like something you hear about in the darker parts of the world.

Getting hacked up in the middle of the street is not something you expect in London and then the assailants waiting around for the Police!!!! Crazy, high or both????

You mean in parts of the world where there's lots of sand?

None of the above. Just radical Islam alive and well and thriving amongst us. And anyone can call me a bigot all you want. I don't give a rat's ass. It is what it is.

Its OK rgbrock, their type are welcomed in that country, housed, fed, watered, funded and allowed to spout hate on the streets whilst the police stand by watching out of fear of offending their delicate nature-

Game, set, match !!!

I was thinking more Rwanda, DRC, Sudan etc.
Then again you can also add some parts of Eastern Europe if blatant acts of hacking people up so medievally is the yardstick.

It makes me wonder, just what did they achieve by doing this ? Victim was a soldier, they are 'soldiers of a religious ideology' and by doing this they have made a statement. However, in the passing of a day(s) it will be forgotten and the UK won't have changed it's policies and the perpetrators will languish for many years in a prison. Famous for 5 minutes and an innocent young man loses his life.

Integral part of the culture SHJ.

Ingrained at youth and lying dormant ready to spring any time anywhere

Driven by blind faith and blind ignorance.

Jihad? One more small step toward another caliphate? The spreading of Mohammad's loving message? Payback (as usual and ad naseum) for Afghanistan and Iraq?

At least they had the decency to wait around for 20 minutes for the cops to arrive.

Not holding my breath nor holding out any hope, but shit like this should lead to a small step in the direction of finally bringing this organised menace under control.

Reuters here in the U.S. is reporting that the soldier who was attacked was on active duty and stationed at the Royal Artillery barracks in London.

Reuters is also reporting the he was, indeed, beheaded.

Middle of bloody London.

I do hope this leads to them being curtailed.

And I agree with both the Police comments.

Wonder if the local indigenous population will grow some and react a little.

Had it been a balmy London Friday night in August or similar !

I can't view this so apologies in advance if it causes offence, it purports to show the x rays getting perforated.

I'll remove immediately if there are objections.
