    Terrorist Group ISIS

    I guess there are probably reasons why there are certain unspoken SAF manpower policies..... http://www.valuewalk.com/2014/06/isis-5-year-territorial-expansion-plan-map/ ISIS, the radical terrorist group that has seized massive portions of Iraq and also Syria, is apparently looking to expand its territory as far as the East coast of North Africa and all the way into South East Asia, with Malaysia and Indonesia in its sights (or perhaps dreams would be a more appropriate term). This is all according to a map that has been circulating Twitter.
  2. LONDON: Shamima Begum, a teenager who left London when she was aged 15 to join Islamic State in Syria, has had her British citizenship revoked, according to a letter sent to her family published by ITV News on Tuesday (Feb 19). Begum, who gave birth to a son at the weekend, was discovered in a refugee camp in Syria by a London Times journalist earlier this month. Now aged 19, she has told reporters she wants to return to Britain. A debate has broken out about whether Ms Begum, who travelled to Syria in 2015 aged 15, should be allowed to return to Britain having joined Isis, which has claimed responsibility for terrorist attacks on the UK. The Manchester Arena attack in May 2017 killed 22 people after a suicide bomber detonated a device packed with shrapnel at the end of a pop concert. In the latest of a series of interviews she has given while in the camp, Ms Begum told the BBC she had regrets about the Manchester attack: “I do feel that is wrong. Innocent people did get killed,” she said. “It’s one thing to kill a soldier – it’s fine, it’s self-defence. But to kill people like women and children – just like the women and children in Baghuz who are being killed right now unjustly by the bombings – it’s a two-way thing, really.” She continued: “This is kind of retaliation. Their justification was that it was retaliation so I thought that is a fair justification.” “That was unfair on them … They weren’t fighting anyone. They weren’t causing any harm. But neither was I and neither [were the] other women who are being killed right now back in Baghuz.” if you have been following the news, you'd be aware of all interviews the girl had done showing no remorse or whatsoever. She has even gone on to say that if her first baby had survived, she would have wanted him to become a ISIS fighter too. now the QN is, if one day a fellow brother or sister from Sg joins a terrorist group too but years later,regrets doing so and wish to return to sg, what would we do? what would our government do? do we let him/her return? should we risk it all? we dont know how damaged their minds would be then. should we let them return, jail them for an un-determined no of yearS? How many years is enough? how do we determine they are safe to be integrated bk to our society again after that? lets leave all sensitive matters pertaining religion out of this discussion. this is a fight against terrorist and not against our muslim brothers and sisters. https://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/world/teenager-who-joined-islamic-state-group-in-syria-to-lose-uk-11260642?cid=FBcna&fbclid=IwAR1qrf4Uhy4FG7Lt1Q1caTnbVaH8ceVDViV6TOiArCGYYQfGsMC4ODJVQWA

    Terror Attacks in Europe

    Still going on.... http://edition.cnn.com/2015/11/13/world/paris-shooting/index.html
  4. It’s a sad fact of life in the 21st century that active shootings have become a regular occurrence in the United States. In other parts of the world, terrorist groups are using active shootings to, well, terrorize. While the media focuses on the firestorm of political debate these events cyclically create, I’ve rarely seen them discuss what people are actually supposed to do in these situations. According to the FBI, active shootings in public places are becoming increasingly common. Which means it would serve everyone to understand how to respond if they ever find themselves in the line of fire. Over the years I’ve talked to a lot of military, tactical, and law enforcement professionals who’ve spent their careers training and dealing with violent individuals: U.S. marshals, SWAT officers, and special forces operators. And I’ve asked them all this same question: What’s an average joe civilian like me supposed to do when faced with a gunman who’s indiscriminately firing on people? They’ve all answered the same way. In today’s article, I share expert-backed advice on how best to react if you ever find yourself in a situation with an active shooter. Learning how to survive a shooting is much like learning how to survive an airplane crash: such an event is statistically unlikely to happen to you, and simple chance may make you a victim before you’re able to take any volitional action. But if there are things you can do to increase your odds of survival even slightly, you ought to know and practice them. Something to Keep in Mind: You’re Probably On Your Own In a study done by the FBI in 2014, it was discovered that most active shootings end in 2 minutes or less. That’s not enough time for law enforcement to arrive. So when you start hearing gunshots in places you shouldn’t be hearing gunshots, understand that you don’t have very much time to think about what you should do. That’s why… You’ve Got to Know What You’d Do Before It Actually Happens When any sort of emergency situation strikes, be it an active shooter or even a fire, the natural response for most people, surprisingly enough, is not to do anything. We highlighted several of the reasons for this passivity in our article about why most people freeze up in emergency situations. For example, the “normalcy bias” causes victims to act like everything is fine even though things are far from it. Our brain is predisposed to assume that things will carry on in a predictable way. When the pattern is broken, it takes a long time for the brain to process this aberration. This is why many people who witness traumatic events report that it felt surreal, like they were watching a movie and it wasn’t really happening. They also often say that at first they thought the gunshots were fireworks or a car backfiring or a book falling — things that would fit better in their usual paradigm of daily life. Another bias that keeps us from taking action is our natural tendency to follow the crowd. If we see that everyone else is cowering in fear or locked up by inertia, then our natural tendency is to act the same. The way you overcome these inclinations towards passivity is deciding exactly what you’ll do in the event of a shooting — before one ever happens. You’ve got to have a plan. I know it seems morbid, but you really should visualize what you would do in various situations were an active shooter to suddenly intrude upon the scene. What would your plan be if you were in the office and heard shots coming from the floor beneath you? Would you have time to run? If so, where would you go? If you heard the shots just down the hallway and there’s no place to run or hide, what would be your next step? Visualize your plan in as much detail as possible. In an active shooter situation, seconds matter. You don’t have time to figure out what you’re going to do when a guy starts spraying a building full of gunfire. By having a general preconceived plan, you give yourself a head start. This all goes back to our article on the OODA Loop. Remember, in any conflict there are multiple loops going on. It’s your loop versus the shooter’s, and the first to complete their respective decision-making cycle usually wins the fight. OODA Loops can begin way before an actual encounter starts. By coming up with a plan of what you would do in an active shooter situation before one ever happens, you’re already engaged in the second step: Orienting. Should you encounter a shooter, you can act immediately because you’ve already begun the cycle and already have a plan in place. Remember, ABO: Always Be Orienting. Maintain Situational Awareness Wherever You Go Besides having a general idea of what you’d do in an active shooter situation, another thing you must do to increase your chances of surviving is constantly maintaining situational awareness. We’ve written in detail about situational awareness before, so rather than getting into the nitty gritty here, let’s review a few important principles as they apply to shootings: Stay in condition yellow. Condition Yellow is best described as “relaxed alert.” There’s no specific threat situation, but you have your head up and you’re taking in your surroundings with all your senses. Most people associate situational awareness with just visual stimulation, but you can also learn a lot about a particular scenario from sounds. This is especially true for active shootings. If you hear gunshots — or something that sounds an awful lot like gunshots — that should be a sign that you need to start immediately preparing to take action. Though your senses are slightly heightened in Condition Yellow, it’s also important to stay relaxed. Staying relaxed ensures that you maintain an open focus, which allows you to take in more information about what’s going on around you. Research shows that when we get nervous or stressed, our attention narrows, causing us to concentrate on just a few things at a time. A narrow focus can therefore cause us to miss important details in our environment. Bottom line: Don’t have your nose constantly in your smartphone and don’t zone out; rather, you should open your eyes, ears, and nose, and calmly and constantly scan your environment to take in what’s going on. Establish baselines and look for anomalies. As Patrick Van Horne notes in his book Left of Bang, a key component of situational awareness is establishing baselines and looking for anomalies. A baseline is what’s “normal” in a given situation, and it will differ from person to person and environment to environment. A baseline in an office would be people working at their desks or chatting in a lobby. A baseline at a restaurant would be people in uniforms coming in and out of the kitchen and customers entering and exiting the restaurant through the front door. We establish baselines so that we can look for anomalies. Hearing gunshots at a college campus is definitely out of the ordinary, and should immediately trigger your active shooter plan of action. But let’s take a look at a subtler anomaly. If you’re at a movie theater and you see a guy entering the theater from the exit near the screen, that should definitely put you on alert. It could just be a guy sneaking in for a free movie, but it could also be a gunman. You don’t need to go and immediately tackle the guy, but you’d certainly want to keep your eye on him and make sure you’re prepared to quickly move out. Know where all your exits are. If there’s one actionable takeaway you get from this article, let it be this. Wherever you are, always know the locations of the nearest exits. As we’ll see in a moment, running should be your first line of action in an active shooter situation. You want to get as far away from the gunman as possible and that often means getting out of the building where he’s shooting. So whenever you enter a building, the first thing you should do is look for exit signs and make mental notes of them. You also need to consider not-so-visible exits. For example, most grocery stores will have an exit door in the very back in the “employee only” section. If you’re near the back of the store and you hear gunshots from the front, you’ll want to head directly to this rear exit. Another example of not-so-obvious exits is in restaurants. Most restaurants will have an exit in the back of the kitchen. If you’re near the kitchen and you hear gunshots near the front of the place, you’d want to hightail it to this back door. Because these exits are in places considered “employee only,” people have been conditioned not to even consider using them. But in an active shooter situation, these kinds of norms obviously go out the window, and preparing yourself to disregard them is a must. Your Active Shooter Triage: Run, Hide, Fight So you’ve heard shots and screams. There’s an active shooting happening. What should you do? All the experts agree that you have three possible actions: run, hide, and fight. Run Running away should always be your first line of action. As soon as you hear gunfire, leave the premises immediately using your preconceived escape plan and get as far away from the shooter as possible. Ideally, you’ll be able to escape without having to cross the shooter’s path. Keep in mind that in an active shooter situation, most people won’t want to leave because 1) they’re cowed in fear, 2) they’ve let the normalcy bias take over, or 3) they think hiding should be their first recourse. But you need to run, regardless of what others are doing. Do all you can to convince them to come with you, but if they don’t comply, leave them, and get out of the building or danger area as soon as possible. Don’t try to gather your belongings. You can replace your laptop; you can’t replace your life. As you make your exit, tell others to come along with you. Once you’re out of the danger area, prevent others (except for law enforcement) from entering the premises. When you’re running, keep your hands visible. Law enforcement will be checking you to decide if you’re a threat. This may go against every humane compulsion you have, but don’t try to move or assist the wounded while you’re making your exit. It leaves you vulnerable to attack; turning one casualty into two won’t ultimately help things. Even the first law enforcement officers to arrive at the scene will initially ignore the wounded so they can take out the shooter. Just as their top priority is to stop the gunman, your top priority is to get to safety. If you’re in an open area and there’s distance between you and the shooter, run as fast as you can in a zig-zag pattern. Shooting a moving target is hard even for experienced marksman, and many mass shooters have little or no experience with firearms. So move as much as possible and take cover behind barriers that can stop bullets (cement pillars, vending machines, etc.). As soon as you get to safety, call 911. Don’t assume someone already has. Hide Sometimes running isn’t an option. Maybe the shooter is in front of the only exit and you can’t jump out the window because you’re on the fourth floor. If you can’t make an escape, the next best thing to do is to hide in a secure location. You want to hide in a place that’s out of the shooter’s view and that can provide protection if shots are fired in your direction. If you’re in an office or school building, find a room that has a lockable door. If you can’t lock the door of the room you’re in, barricade it with a table and chairs. You want to make it as hard as possible for the shooter to enter; he’s often looking for easy victims, and will move on rather than bother pushing through the barrier. Turn off the lights in the room and be as quiet as possible. Be sure to put your cell phone on silent. You don’t even want it on vibrate. Stay away from the door and crouch behind items that could offer protection from bullets like cabinets or desks. Hide in a bathroom or closet if you can. If possible, dial 911 and let the authorities know there’s an active shooter in your building. If you can’t speak because the shooter is nearby, leave the line open so the dispatcher can hear what’s going on. Don’t open the door unless absolutely necessary or if you can confirm it’s the authorities who are knocking. According to Clint Emerson, Navy SEAL and author of the book 100 Deadly Skills, shooters will often knock on doors or yell for help in the hopes of convincing people who are hiding to show themselves. If you can’t find a room in which to secure yourself, hide in a location that offers cover and concealment from the shooter, but still allows you to see him. If the shooter passes you, you can make a run for it. If he doesn’t, it puts you in a position to attack if necessary. Fight! When running or hiding have failed or aren’t viable options, it’s time to resort to plan C: Fight! Most civilians don’t think they can take on an active shooter because, well, the shooter has a gun and they likely do not. But here’s the thing: it is possible for unarmed individuals to subdue or chase away an armed shooter. Anthony Sadler, Spencer Stone, and Alek Skarlatos — the 3 friends who rushed a terrorist aboard a train to Paris — did it, saving dozens of lives. So did Frank Hall, a football coach who ran down a shooter and chased him out of a high school in Ohio before he could wreak massive carnage. Yes, some studies have suggested that armed civilians can reduce the number of fatalities in an active shooter situation compared to situations where there were no armed civilians. But what these same studies suggest is that just having civilians — armed or not — quickly take action against a shooter can reduce the number of victims too. So even if you don’t plan on carrying a firearm yourself, commit to the idea that if you absolutely have to (and, again, we’re talking last resort here), you’ll attack an active shooter quickly and devastatingly. Will you get shot? Possibly. But it’s possible to survive multiple gunshot wounds, and doing nothing will probably get you killed anyway. Sadly, history has shown that many active shooters will unflinchingly shoot people begging for their lives while they’re curled up in the fetal position. As Chris Norman, a Briton who assisted the 3 Americans in their attack of the train terrorist described his reason for taking action: “My thought was, ‘OK, I’m probably going to die anyway, so let’s go.’ I’d rather die being active, trying to get him down, than simply sit in the corner and be shot. Either you sit down and you die or you get up and you die. It was really nothing more than that.” How to Fight an Active Shooter So you’ve made the decision that running and hiding are no longer options and that fighting is your last recourse. What’s the best way to fight an active shooter? If you’re armed yourself, there are certain techniques you should employ in returning fire. A tutorial on how to take down a gunman lies outside the purview of this post, and must be practiced in the real world. If you’re not armed, real world practice in hand-to-hand fighting will be an enormous asset, not only in giving you concrete skills to employ, but in offering you a greater comfort level with violence and a confidence in taking action. It’s not a coincidence that Spencer Stone — a U.S. Airman who was the first of the 3 Americans to rush the train-bound terrorist and choked him out while his buddies gave him a beat down — was trained in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Stone unequivocally attributed his training in martial arts to his survival, adding that even a cursory knowledge of self-defense is highly beneficial: “I 100% believe that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu saved my life at that moment. Every move I used on him was very, very basic — you can learn in five minutes. If we had a course like that in the Air Force for people to learn basic moves, it could help anyone in a situation like that.” But even if you’re the most average of average joes — you’ve got neither a gun nor a black belt — you should still attempt to take on a gunman as a last resort, keeping these principles in mind: Understand your advantages. Most violent gunmen work under the assumption that because they have a gun, people will do what they want or just hide. They don’t expect someone to come charging after them. As we discussed in our article on the OODA Loop, an important part of winning any fight is resetting or disrupting your opponent’s loop. As former US Air Marshal Curtis Sprague told me, you want your opponent to have an “uhhhh…” moment. By doing the unexpected (attacking), Sprague argues that “you’re disrupting the gunman’s OODA Loop which slows him down — even if it’s just a few seconds — and gives you more time to complete your OODA Loop and win the battle.” So simply charging your gunman puts you at an advantage because he’s definitely not expecting it. In 100 Deadly Skills, Emerson notes another advantage to keep in mind: “a gun can only be shot in one direction at any one time.” If you approach the shooter from behind or from the side, it’s going to be very hard for him to shoot you. What’s more, if you attack the shooter as a team (which you should), he can’t shoot everyone at the same time. An attack by multiple people, from multiple angles, will be difficult for a lone gunman to fend off. Be aggressive and violent. This isn’t the time for pussy footing. Once you decide to fight, attack with violence and aggression. Alek Skarlatos grabbed the train-bound terrorist’s rifle and pounded him repeatedly in the head with its muzzle. This kind of violence may not be pleasant to contemplate, but remember, old ingrained norms like never hurting others go out the window in a crisis; victory will go to the swift and relentless. Use lethal force, and don’t stop fighting until you’re dead or the shooter stops moving. Control the weapon and then control the shooter. The sooner you can get the weapon out of the shooter’s hands, without endangering others, the better. Without his gun, he can’t shoot anymore. Once the weapon has been secured, turn your attention to completely containing the perpetrator. Keep in mind every fight is different. Sometimes you’re not going to be in a position to secure the weapon first, so your priority would be to inflict as much violence as possible on the shooter until you can get the gun away from him. Even if you can’t get the gun completely out of the attacker’s hands, do what you can to control it. Grab the gun so that you can exercise some influence over where it’s pointed. If the shooter has a semi-automatic pistol, use this tip I picked up from UFC fighter and Army Ranger Tim Kennedy at the Atomic Athlete Vanguard. Grab the barrel as hard as you can. First, this allows you to control where the gun is pointed. And second, if the gun does fire, it will prevent the slide from going back and chambering another round, thus preventing the shooter from re-firing. Use improvised weapons. Just because you don’t have a gun, doesn’t mean you don’t have a weapon. A weapon can multiply force and almost anything in your environment can be turned into one: chairs, fire extinguishers, umbrellas, belts, coffee mugs. Heck, even a pen can be used as an improvised weapon. Throw stuff at the shooter. Even if it doesn’t disable him, you’re creating hesitation which will give you more time to get closer to end the fight. Remember, disrupt that loop! If it’s available, use items that can blind the shooter: flash a high-beam tactical flashlight in his eyes, spray a fire extinguisher or chemicals in his face, or throw a pot of scalding hot coffee his way. Be creative! Once the shooter is disoriented, rush him and take him down. Work as a team. The more people you can get to help you in attacking the shooter, the better your chances of ending the ordeal with fewer casualties. But remember, most people’s natural reaction in these sorts of situations is to not do anything. You’ll need to be assertive and take the lead. Courage is contagious. Conclusion While active shootings are increasing, they’re still rare. We shouldn’t be cowered in our homes in fear. But there’s no downside to being prepared. Sometimes there’s nothing you can do to survive a shooting; you’re in the wrong place, at the wrong time, and you’re killed without warning. But you may get a chance to act, and will only have seconds to figure out what to do. Your stress will be through the roof and the situation will be utter chaos. If you hope in that moment to be able to protect your life and the lives of others, ready yourself now and have a plan of action wherever you go.

    Brussels under attack!

    After Paris, now it's Brussels... http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-35869254 Brussels Zaventem airport blasts cause casualties5 minutes ago From the sectionEurope Media captionPeople fled Brussels airport after two explosions went offTwo blasts have struck the departures area of Zaventem airport in Brussels. The Belgian government has confirmed casualties but has given no numbers. The cause of the explosions is unknown. Another explosion has now been reported at a metro station close to the EU institutions. The whole metro system has been closed. The blasts come four days after the capture in Brussels of Salah Abdeslam, the main suspect in the jihadist attacks in Paris on 13 November 2015. Belgium has now raised its terror threat to its highest level. Brussels airport blasts - latest updates Emergency services are clearing the airport completely. Belgium's Het Laatste Nieuws reports that more bombs have been found. The airport is being evacuated and has been closed to flights. The Belga news agency reports that shots were fired and shouts in Arabic were heard before the two explosions. Media captionDamage at the departure lounge of Brussels airportImages on social media showed smoke rising from one of the buildings, amid reports of panic as people fled the airport. Rail transport to the facility has been halted and people have been told not to come to the airport. All flights have been diverted. Other reports say at least one of the explosions was close to the American Airlines check-in area but this has not been confirmed. The Belgian broadcaster RTBF quoted a witness as saying there were people injured or unconscious in the departure area, opposite the Sheraton hotel. There are few reports yet about the metro blast. Niels Caignau, a Swissport employee, told Flemish broadcaster VRT: "I was on a break and heard and felt a big explosion - we have from here a view over the departure hall and saw a plume of smoke come out. "The windows are completely shattered. People went outside in shock. It doesn't look good." Belgium's Interior Minister Jan Jambon had said on Monday that the country was on the highest level of alert for possible revenge attacks after the capture of Salah Abdeslam. He told Belgian radio: "We know that stopping one cell can... push others into action. We are aware of it in this case." Zaventem airport is 11km (7 miles) north-east of Brussels and dealt with more than 23 million passengers last year.

    The Shoe Bomber is Sentenced

    The shoe bomber is sentenced....... Remember the guy who got on a plane with a bomb built into his shoe and tried to light it? Did you know his trial is over? Did you know he was sentenced? Did you see/hear any of the judge's comments on TV or Radio? Didn't think so!!! Everyone should hear what the judge had to say. Ruling by Judge William Young, US District Court. Prior to sentencing, the Judge asked the defendant if he had anything to say His response: After admitting his guilt to the court for the record, Reid also admitted his 'allegiance to Osama bin Laden, to Islam, and to the religion of Allah,' defiantly stating, 'I think I will not apologize for my actions,' and told the court 'I am at war with your country.' Judge Young then delivered the statement quoted below: Judge Young: 'Mr. Richard C. Reid, hearken now to the sentence the Court imposes upon you. On counts 1, 5 and 6 the Court sentences you to life in prison in the custody of the United States Attorney General. On counts 2, 3, 4 and 7, the Court sentences you to 20 years in prison on each count, the sentence on each count to run consecutively. (That's 80 years.) On count 8 the Court sentences you to the mandatory 30 years again, to be served consecutively to the 80 years just imposed. The Court imposes upon you for each of the eight counts a fine of $250,000 that's an aggregate fine of $2 million. The Court accepts the government's recommendation with respect to restitution and orders restitution in the amount of $298.17 to Andre Bousquet and $5,784 to American Airlines. The Court imposes upon you an $800 special assessment. The Court imposes upon you five years supervised release simply because the law requires it. But the life sentences are real life sentences so I need go no further. This is the sentence that is provided for by our statutes. It is a fair and just sentence. It is a righteous sentence. Now, let me explain this to you. We are not afraid of you or any of your terrorist co-conspirators, Mr. Reid. We are Americans. We have been through the fire before. There is too much war talk here and I say that to everyone with the utmost respect. Here in this court, we deal with individuals as individuals and care for individuals as individuals. As human beings, we reach out for justice. You are not an enemy combatant. You are a terrorist. You are not a soldier in any war. You are a terrorist. To give you that reference, to call you a soldier, gives you far too much stature. Whether the officers of government do it or your attorney does it, or if you think you are a soldier, you are not-----, you are a terrorist. And we do not negotiate with terrorists. We do not meet with terrorists. We do not sign documents with terrorists. We hunt them down one by one and bring them to justice. So war talk is way out of line in this court You are a big fellow. But you are not that big. You're no warrior. I've known warriors. You are a terrorist. A species of criminal that is guilty of multiple attempted murders. In a very real sense, State Trooper Santiago had it right when you first were taken off that plane and into custody and you wondered where the press and the TV crews were, and he said: 'You're no big deal. ' You are no big deal. What your able counsel and what the equally able United States attorneys have grappled with and what I have as honestly as I know how tried to grapple with, is why you did something so horrific. What was it that led you here to this courtroom today? I have listened respectfully to what you have to say. And I ask you to search your heart and ask yourself what sort of unfathomable hate led you to do what you are guilty and admit you are guilty of doing? And, I have an answer for you. It may not satisfy you, but as I search this entire record, it comes as close to understanding as I know. It seems to me you hate the one thing that to us is most precious. You hate our freedom. Our individual freedom. Our individual freedom to live as we choose, to come and go as we choose, to believe or not believe as we individually choose. Here, in this society, the very wind carries freedom. It carries it everywhere from sea to shining sea. It is because we prize individual freedom so much that you are here in this beautiful courtroom, so that everyone can see, truly see, that justice is administered fairly, individually, and discretely. It is for freedom's sake that your lawyers are striving so vigorously on your behalf, have filed appeals, will go on in their representation of you before other judges. We Americans are all about freedom. Because we all know that the way we treat you, Mr. Reid, is the measure of our own liberties. Make no mistake though. It is yet true that we will bear any burden; pay any price, to preserve our freedoms. Look around this courtroom. Mark it well. The world is not going to long remember what you or I say here. The day after tomorrow, it will be forgotten, but this, however, will long endure. Here in this courtroom and courtrooms all across America, the American people will gather to see that justice, individual justice, justice, not war, individual justice is in fact being done. The very President of the United States through his officers will have to come into courtrooms and lay out evidence on which specific matters can be judged and juries of citizens will gather to sit and judge that evidence democratically, to mold and shape and refine our sense of justice. See that flag, Mr. Reid? That's the flag of the United States of America. That flag will fly there long after this is all forgotten. That flag stands for freedom. And it always will. Mr. Custody Officer. Stand him down. So, how much of this Judge's comments did we hear on our TV sets? We need more judges like Judge Young. Pass this around. Everyone should and needs to hear what this fine judge had to say. Powerful words that strike home.

    Fake beheading of Jap in ISIS

  10. Gunmen have shot dead 12 people at the Paris office of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in an apparent militant Islamist attack. Four of the magazine's well-known cartoonists, including its editor, were among those killed, as well as two police officers. A major police operation is under way to find three gunmen who fled by car. President Francois Hollande said there was no doubt it had been a terrorist attack "of exceptional barbarity". The masked attackers opened fire with assault rifles in the office and exchanged shots with police in the street outside before escaping by car. They later abandoned the car in Rue de Meaux, northern Paris. Witnesses said they heard the gunmen shouting "we have avenged the Prophet Muhammad". The number of attackers was initially reported to be two, but French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve later said they were hunting three "criminals".

Charlie Hebdo editor Stephane Charbonnier, 47, had received death threats in the past and was living under police protection. French media have named the three other cartoonists killed in the attack as Cabu, Tignous and Wolinski. The attack took place during the magazine's daily editorial meeting. At least seven people were wounded in the attack, with several in critical condition. The satirical weekly has courted controversy in the past with its irreverent take on news and current affairs. It was fire-bombed in November 2011 a day after it carried a caricature of the Prophet Muhammad. The latest tweet on Charlie Hebdo's account was a cartoon of the Islamic State militant group leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. People had been "murdered in a cowardly manner", President Hollande told reporters at the scene. "We are threatened because we are a country of liberty," he added, appealing for national unity. US President Barack Obama has condemned the "horrific shooting", offering to provide any assistance needed "to help bring these terrorists to justice". UK Prime Minister David Cameron said in a tweet: "The murders in Paris are sickening. We stand with the French people in the fight against terror and defending the freedom of the press." The Arab League and Al-Azhar mosque, Egypt's top Islamic institution, have also condemned the attack. http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-30710883
  11. SMS about terrorist attack in Bugis a hoax: Police An SMS about a possible terrorist attack on Bugis Village has been circulating amongst members of the public. But police say there is no credible evidence to suggest such an attack to date. Still, they've taken the necessary precautions to enhance security in the area. And investigations into the case are ongoing. In the meantime, police are advising members of the public to not be overly alarmed, and to contact the police immediately if they notice any suspicious activity. They also want to warn those who would intentionally mislead the public by perpetuating false threats to public safety. The police say they take a very stern view against anyone who attempts to cause undue public alarm or fear in such a manner. They added that they will not hesitate to take action against such perpetrators. http://938live.sg/portal/site/938Live/menu...000e101000aRCRD anyone here got receive the sms?

    Lockerbie terrorist freed

    I just can't understand why the Scottish Justice minister has allowed the terrorist to be freed back to his country. It seems like something is wrong here unless there is something happening under the table which is not published.
  16. Sounds like an April Fool's joke, ain't it? Which scholar's idea izzit? Show of force in anti-terrorist drill New task force displays muscle needed to stop terrorists and pirates from using sea lanes to launch attacks By Jermyn Chow The Police Coast Guard flanking a small boat carrying 'terrorists' targeting an oil refinery on Jurong Island. The aim of the exercise is to put the new Maritime Security Task Force through its paces. -- ST PHOTOS: ALBERT SIM SINGAPORE marked the end of a two-week exercise on combating pirates and terrorists at sea with a show of force in waters off Pulau Sudong yesterday. Thirty-five vessels swarmed the sea, while seven aircraft flew overhead, in a bid to scuttle an attempt by five 'terrorists' to ram an oil refinery on Jurong Island with an explosive-laden sampan. More than 1,800 staff from the security arms - army, navy and air force, the Maritime and Port Authority, Police Coast Guard, Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, and Singapore Customs - were put through their paces in Exercise Apex. How to deal with ferry mishaps, dispose of sea mines and carry out checks on merchant vessels were also among the drills carried out. The flotilla belongs to the Maritime Security Task Force, a new command group set up to marshal a national response to maritime security threats to the country. Yesterday afternoon's display was witnessed by Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security S. Jayakumar and Defence Minister Teo Chee Hean. They stood on the navy's patrol vessel RSS Daring, which closed in on the hostile sampan and took down the armed infiltrators. Also flanking the 'enemy' was the Police Coast Guard vessel. The demonstration underscored the task force's attention on small boats - below 300 gross tons, the likes of which were used by the terrorists during the Mumbai attacks last November. About 100 such small vessels - mostly fishing boats operated by one or two people - traverse the Singapore Strait daily. They look innocuous but can be easily armed to hit Singapore's key installations 'within minutes', said Chief of Navy Rear-Admiral Chew Men Leong. Putting the task force in action would allow commanders to 'mix and match' men and machines from the different maritime agencies quickly. Its integrated structure under the Chief of Defence Force meant that firepower from the air force and army can be called upon quickly. The task force staff, who will be housed together at Changi Command and Control Centre by next year, has another important weapon: access to real-time information about larger ships that use the congested Singapore Strait. More than 1,500 such ships, each monitored by a radar network, ply the sea lane each day. It also has sensors to see farther beyond Singapore's immediate waters to the Strait of Malacca and South China Sea, allowing the task force some lead time to thwart pirates or terrorists, said the task force deputy commander, Lieutenant-Colonel Chua Meng Seng. Moving forward, RADM Chew, the navy chief, said that the task force is on the lookout for possible links among pirates, sea robbers and terrorists. 'We need to build a much stronger system to keep constant watch over our waters so that we will be one step ahead of all maritime threats,' he said. jermync@sph.com.sg --- SAF really wayang man... What kind of exercise is this. zzz

    Why Indo More Successful in Capturing Terrorist

    CNA Report : Indonesia police say 10 held over terror bomb plot JAKARTA - Indonesian police said Thursday they had cracked a terrorist cell linked to some of the region's most wanted fugitives after the arrest of 10 suspects with a cache of powerful homemade bombs. Police said the cell was connected to Malaysian extremist Noordin Mohammad Top, a hardline leader of the Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) Islamist group who is wanted for allegedly masterminding the 2002 Bali attacks. One of them was a bombmaker who reportedly met Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden and is associated with Mas Selamat bin Kastari, the suspected leader of JI's Singapore branch who escaped from prison there on February 27. They were arrested earlier this week in Palembang, the capital of South Sumatra province, where US and Australian-trained anti-terror police also found a cache of more than 20 bombs hidden in the attic of a rented house. "In Palembang we have arrested members of a terrorist network who were detained by Special Detachment 88," police spokesman Abu Bakar Nataprawira told reporters, referring to the anti-terror squad. Police did not confirm that the bomb expert linked to Mas Selamat was a Singaporean, but the government in the city state said one of its citizens was among the group rounded up in Sumatra. The Kompas daily said the suspect, identified by police only as MH, 35, had met Osama several times and had received training in Afghanistan. He is said to have been a student of JI bombmaker Azahari Husin, who was killed in 2005. "The suspect gave training in assembling bombs to people in Palembang related to terrorist acts in Indonesia," Nataprawira said, adding that he was arrested on Saturday. The arrest of MH led to the detention of nine other suspects in Palembang and the raid on the house on Tuesday, where police discovered the bombs cache. Seven powerful "tupperware bombs" and 20 smaller pipe bombs were found in the attic of the rented house, along with bomb-making chemicals and weapons. Sixteen of the bombs were reportedly primed to explode. Indonesian media reports have identified the Singaporean as Abu Hazam, who is also known as Omar. Abu Hazam was arrested last Saturday in the Sumatran village of Sekayu. This Singaporean had been revealed as Mohd Hassan Saynudin in today, The New Paper. Well done, Indonesia Police, Special Detachment 88....
  19. http://www.straitstimes.com/Free/Story/STIStory_253988.html July 3, 2008 Singaporean among nine nabbed with powerful bombs in Sumatra Report says the men are linked to wanted terrorist Noordin Top JAKARTA - A SINGAPOREAN who met several times with Osama bin Laden was among nine terror suspects arrested yesterday with a cache of powerful bombs, an Indonesian television station said last night. TVOne quoted police as saying the men had been plotting an attack on Western tourists, but decided to postpone the strike after realising that too many Indonesians could also be victims. The suspects, linked to one of South-east Asia's most wanted men, were arrested in Palembang, on the Sumatra coast. TVOne said the men had ties to Noordin Top, a Malaysian who has been blamed for a string of deadly attacks in the predominantly Muslim nation since 2002. A source said that police also believed one of the suspects was a close friend of Azahari Husin, a Malaysian bombmaker for regional militant network Jemaah Islamiah who is alleged to have played key roles in attacks in Indonesia. Azahari died in a police raid in East Java in 2005. Police spokesman Abubakar Nataprawira confirmed that arrests had been made and explosives seized, but could not provide details. 'I can confirm the arrests there but I am unable to say how many,' said police spokesman Abubakar Nataprawira. 'I have been informed there were assembled bombs.' The eight explosives in their possession were five times as powerful as those used in the 2005 triple-suicide attacks on the resort island of Bali that killed 20 people, TVOne quoted police as saying. The station showed footage of the home-made devices. Noordin Top is believed to head a breakaway faction of JI that is committed to Al-Qaeda-style attacks on Western, civilian targets. He is still on the loose. Recent police documents showed that JI has maintained the ability and desire to forge international links despite a crackdown that has resulted in the arrests and convictions of hundreds of Islamic militants. The detentions came as President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono was visiting the area in Sumatra. No further details on the Singaporean or his links to Osama were available. A police source involved in the raids said of the suspects: 'Some of them are Indonesians and some others, foreigners. We also found plenty of bombs.' A series of raids, often involving Detachment 88, a police unit funded and trained by the United States and Australia, have led to the arrest of hundreds of militant suspects.

Once a year, have an Allow a Terrorist to Escape Day to facilitate national bonding. From the Straits Times: "S'poreans' response as 'one people' lauded THE response by Singaporeans to Mas Selamat's escape from detention is a good example of how the community should respond in such a situation, said Senior Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Zainul Abidin Rasheed yesterday. He said people's reactions to the incident at the grassroots-level Inter-Religious Confidence Circles (IRCCs) have been the same, regardless of race, and that it is good the community is taking the matter as seriously as the Government. 'It shows we are responding as one people and in times of need, we are there to help Singapore, which is reassuring,' he said." Even Finance Minister Tharman weighed in: "S
