First questions about the London attack

LONDON ATTACKS: Who Knew, Who Benefits The Most?

3 June, 2017

London once again becomes a target of a purported terror event. This time, were told multiple attacks have occurred simultaneously, happening less than two weeks after Manchester’s known wolf arena bombing. Only time will tell if the latest attacks on London Bridge and the Borough Market area, will also turn out to be the work of known wolf terrorists watched by British security. 

RT News reports:

London police confirm they are dealing with three “incidents” in the city center on Saturday evening: a vehicle collision with pedestrians on London Bridge, reported stabbings in the Borough Market area and a third incident in Vauxhall.”

*UPDATE* – Early reports suggested this was a ‘triple terror attack’ in London but new reports have amended the initial reports. Here’s a screenshot from the UK’s Telegraph

Though many are still shocked in the wake of the London attacks – key questions will undoubtedly emerge following this latest act of terror in the West.

The new London attacks, come on the heels of the UK’s 2017 general election on June 8th, a race which has tightened dramatically since the Manchester Arena attack. Reuters reports the latest election details in the aftermath of yet another terror incident:

British Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives have a lead of just one percentage point over the opposition Labour Party ahead of the June 8 election, according to a Survation poll conducted for the Mail on Sunday newspaper.

The poll showed said May’s lead had fallen sharply from a lead of 12 percentage points in the previous Survation/Mail on Sunday poll published on May 21.

In the new poll, support for the Conservatives stood at 40 percent, down six percentage points and Labour were on 39 percent, up five points.”

The UK’s Telegraph reported the following details as there are believed to be multiple fatalities with some three dozen injured at the moment:

Eyewitnesses spoke of there being two or three masked men, who got out of the van and started attacking people with knives.

A second incident is believed to have taken place at the Borough Bistro, in Borough Market. Eyewitnesses have told of seeing a man being stabbed by someone wearing a red hoody. The attacker then walked calmly away, and gunshots were heard near the Brindisi tapas restaurant.

The BBC is reporting that a security guard who works across multiple bars and pubs in Borough Market claims to have seen a man with a canister strapped to his abdomen. Stressing that the reports were unverified, the news channel claims the man saw the attackers after receiving a call from a colleague in another bar who said people had been stabbed.

The eyewitness described people running away screaming from three men, one wearing a red and black top. He claimed one man had a canister taped to his abdomen. The man and his colleagues tried to throw chairs at the three attackers, who were going in and out of different bars, before helping to evacuate the area.

Drinkers inside a pub have told of the police rushing in, and telling everyone to get on the ground. They were then told to run away from the area.”

The Telegraph also added the following:

A British Transport Police (BTP) officer was stabbed in the face as he responded to the terrorist incident at London Bridge.

Emergency services rushed to the scene following reports of a vehicle ploughing into pedestrians around London Bridge and stabbings at Borough Market shortly after 10m.

The BTP officer, who was on duty, was one of the first on the scene after he responded to calls for help from the public, the force said.

A spokeswoman said it was believed he was targeted by one of the three attackers who were later shot dead by police.”

There have been reports of a controlled detonation of explosives near the London Bridge area…

Additional eyewitness testimony reportedly states that the three masked men believed to be the alleged attackers have been shot, while seen outside a pub with ‘hoax suicide vests’ on.

QUESTION: Why would terrorists be outfitted with fake bomb vests, if their objective was mass casualties?

This aspect will most likely be swept aside, as mainstream media might suggest that the alleged attackers could not obtain real explosives – but this doesn’t adequately explain why they were wearing fake suicide vests.

In less than a few hours, a “series of coordinated terror attacks” has been declared by MET police.

No forensic review or careful examination of a crime scene, yet again…

QUESTION: Will the three masked London attackers have ties to ISIS or al-Qaeda  – while also maintaining a link to British security services as seen in other ‘Known Wolf’ case?

Here’s a screenshot from NDTV depicting authorities supposedly moving in to ‘neutralize’ the alleged London attackers…
It’s important to remember that prior to the Manchester and Parliament Square attacks, mass casualty drills had been held and in one case, Met Police rehearsed a ‘terrifyingly realistic‘ drill on the River Thames.

As we’ve mentioned at 21WIRE numerous times in recent years, many political leaders and media operatives bang the drums of security over so-called terror ‘sleeper cells’ (see the the London Boys sleeper cell) hiding in a nation near you – none of them acknowledge the historical fact that they themselves have also helped to harbor, grow, foment and radicalize individuals through counter-terrorism operations for decades.

When we learn who will ultimately “claim responsibility” for the latest attacks in London – it’s worth reviewing a set of patterns often seen in the aftermath of these types of events:

Suspects have alleged connections to terror or terror networks (potentially security as well).

– Multiple suspects reportedly have ‘radicalized’ views on religion, feeding a prepackaged media narrative which may conflict with other details about said individuals.

– Sensational media projections that bring in additional story lines for dramatic effect.

– A  ‘presumed’ terror motive is publicly accepted with vague evidence provided.

– Politicians, law enforcement and media call the incident a ‘terror attack’ before all evidence has been reviewed, with predictable calls for increased security.

Here’s a YouTube clip featuring FOX News coverage of the attacks, which also includes an interview with an eyewitness discussing the shelter in place scenario which took place after the London terror event…

QUESTION:  Will the London triple attacks increase racial and ethnic tensions in the West, while also pushing the public into accepting a more direct military intervention in Syria – if so, who benefits the most from this latest attack?
