Britain’s top cop against so-called “football hooligans” has issued a warning to English soccer fans heading to Russia for the World Cup international tournament; don’t bring you English flag.
Not only has Deputy Chief Constable Mark Roberts, national lead officer of “football policing,” warned the upwards of 10,000 English fans heading to the Land of the Rus that the Cross of St. George could be seen as “imperialistic” and “antagonistic”.
I remember once hearing in passing, “As long as we have Britain, Australia, and Canada on our side, the rest of the world can go to hell.”
In light of the nuclear threat aimed directly at the United States and our allies in East Asia and the Western Pacific, we should add Japan and South Korea to that list.
But other than us, the Japanese and the South Koreans, no other nation has, at least publicly, openly declared military cooperation with the Washington-Tokyo-Seoul alliance.
That is, until now.
In recent reports by the Daily Mail and The Telegraph, the Brits are drawing up war plans against North Korea, to include the distinct possibility of deploying the recently commissioned HMS Queen Elizabeth to the Far East.
As the Daily Mail noted;
The Armed Forces are preparing for a potential war with North Korea, sources have revealed.
Officials have been instructed to draw up plans for how Britain would respond if war broke out with Pyongyang amid heightening tensions between the West and dictator Kim Jong-Un.
One option involves deploying Britain’s new aircraft carrier – due to be handed over to the Navy later this year – to the region before she has undergone flight trials.
Details of the secret operation plan have emerged after Donald Trump warned that ‘only one thing will work’ when it comes to dealing with North Korea, which has continued nuclear and rocket tests despite widespread condemnation.
The Telegraph also cited;
Among the plans disclosed by the Daily Mail is the deployment of the Navy’s newest aircraft carrier, HMS Queen Elizabeth, before it has undergone flight trials.
“We have plenty of ships to send… the Type-45 destroyers, the Type-23 frigates. Britain’s new aircraft carrier could be pressed into service early if things turn south,” a senior Whitehall source told the newspaper.
HMS Queen Elizabeth, which arrived at its home in Portsmouth in August after extensive sea trials, is not due to enter service until 2020.
The possible move to deploy it ahead of schedule drew comparisons with the start of the Falklands War.
“In the Falklands we had to react to an event and HMS Illustrious was accelerated to respond,” a Navy source told the Mail.
“This was a reaction to protect British territory, however. In this case [North Korea], the UK would be part of a united global coalition. We would see what support we could give.”
London’s famed Scotland Yard detectives have just broken up a rather bloody plot to assassinate the reigning monarch of the British throne this week-end at the official remembrance of the British Empire’s entry into World War One. As reported by Fairfax NZ News (New Zealand) on Nov. 8, 2014 and also by the NewsMax.com news portal on Nov. 7, 2014, at least four Islamic Jihadists have been arrested in various raids throughout London busting up an assassination plot to stab and hack to death Queen Elizabeth II.
In a statement released by Scotland Yard, the Cockney crime busters state they’ve arrested four men — aged 19, 22, 25, and 27 — during the course of raids on eight different properties this past Thursday and Friday in West London and Buckinghamshire as part of an ongoing investigation into “Islamist related terrorism.” The official statement also went on to say with standard British reserve, “The men have been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the Commission, Preparation or Instigation of acts of Terrorism.”
The 88-year-old Queen is scheduled to attend centennial memorial ceremonies hosted by the British equivalent of the American VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars), the Royal British Legion, as they hold what is officially known as the Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall this weekend to honor all the soldiers of the Empire who fell during the First World War. London’s Metropolitan Police have also released that the now arrested suspects at least initially planned to attack the Queen with edged weapons, even though they did have access to firearms.
Both Queen Elizabeth and UK Prime Minister David Cameron had been informed of the threat. British security tout they have erected “a ring of steel … thrown around Whitehall.” Despite the threat, the Queen has not cancelled her participation in the commemorations.
An 18-year-old woman in the North of England was recently discovered by police decapitated apparently at the hands of her boyfriend, and a jury was just told by prosecutors that she was still alive as her murderer carved her head off with a kitchen knife, as reported by both The Sheffield Star (of Great Britain) and the Brietbart.com news portal on April 2, 2014.
A Koranic and Arabic-language instructor in the North of England was found guilty almost two months ago of sexually molesting an 11-year-old girl, yet the presiding judge has just ruled that the convicted child molester will spend none of the 10 month sentence behind bars because among other things, the pedophile’s wife speaks “very little” English and doesn’t have a job, as reported by The Express (of London, UK) on March 18, 2014, and by the Lancashire Telegraph on Jan. 22, 2014.
