A Terrorist Attack in London – a familiar response- By Ishaan Tharoor

March 23, 2017 at 1:00 AM – Washington Post

The incident generated global attention. On a busy day of domestic news, U.S. TV channels replaced their early-afternoon coverage with nonstop feeds from London. There were moving tales of heroism and tragedy: A government minister desperately tried to revive the stabbed officer, but his efforts ultimately proved futile. A woman walking along Westminster Bridge fell into the Thames as the assailant’s car rampaged toward Parliament, but she was pulled alive from the waters

    “Westminster ISIS attacker is named as UK born Khalid Masood,52.”

    It should come as no surprise as to who the barbarian was. What on earth do these sub-humans, death-culters hope to accomplish by continually mowing down innocent people (all over the world) going about their daily lives? What is the meaning and purpose of life to them?

    And what are the so-called silent majority doing to turn them around? Since when you can have your cake and eat it too? How much longer will they (SM) keep turning a blind eye, complicitly?

    I’m quite familiar with the crime scene, as I have walked the Westminster Bridge several times on my many visits to London. This attack sends a chill down the spine.

    These monsters are continually devising new and sinister ways to attack soft targets everywhere and to sneak explosives in electronic devices on board aeroplanes with intent to blow them up in the sky. No one is safe anywhere!

    Alas, what will it take to extirpate this madness from our world?

    Ron, I feel your sense of outrage and our collective inability to stop the violence. I too have walked on that bridge many times and know the area. It is difficult to plan for the ‘monsters’ as we are all soft targets. We just don’t know what the person next to us is thinking or plotting. The enemy within is an ever-present danger. More good people will have to speak out against violence in all its forms. The moderate Muslims, of whom there are many, cannot be silent anymore.

    This has brought shock and sadness to those who were murdered and injured that Day.

    My thoughts and sympathy those poor children who lost their mum and to those who lost a family member because they were murdered by a sick individual who needed locking up when he was first investigated
