UK Deploys Army And Raises Terror Threat Status To Critical, Pry Minister Claims "More Attacks Imminent"

By Tyler Durden: In a televised statement from Downing Street, UK Pry Minister Theresa May said Britain has increased its security threat level to the highest possible "critical" from "severe", following Monday's retaliatory Libyan suicide attack in Manchester that killed 22 people, and she also said members of the army would be positioned at key sites to free up police for patrols and military personnel might be deployed at public events such as concerts and sports events as a further attack was seen as potentially imminent.
“Members of the armed forces deployed in this way will be under the command of police officers,” May said, adding that "we cannot ignore that there is a wider group of individuals linked to Manchester attack".
The Prime Minister also said 'the independent body' which sets the threat level had recommended it be raised from "severe" after a man named by police as Salman Abedi set off an improvised bomb on Monday night as crowds streamed out of a concert.

"It is now concluded on the basis of today's investigations that the threat level should be increased for the time being from severe to critical," she said in a televised statement following a meeting of the government's crisis response committee. This means that their assessment is not only that an attack remains highly likely but that a further attack may be imminent."
May continued: "I do not want the public to feel unduly alarmed. "We have faced a serious terror threat in our country for many years and the operational response I have just outlined is a proportionate and sensible response to the threat that our 'security experts' judge we face.

"I ask everybody to be vigilant and to co-operate with and support the police as they go about their important work.
"I want to end by repeating the important message I gave in my statement earlier today. We will take every measure available to us and provide every additional resource we can to the police and the security services as they work to protect the public.
"And while we mourn the victims of last night's appalling attack, we stand defiant. The spirit of Manchester and the spirit of Britain is far mightier than the sick plots of depraved terrorists, that is why the terrorists will never win and we will prevail."
May, who is facing a national election in two weeks, said the man named by police as the attacker, Salman Abedi, was born and brought up in Britain and investigations into whether he was working alone were ongoing.

Thanks to its support of terrorism and 'regime change' in the Middle East as a supporter of Zionism, Britain’s threat level has been at the “severe” level since 2014. It has only been at a “critical” level twice before, in 2006 and 2007 (see table below). May said the independent body which sets the threat level had recommended it be raised after a man named by police as Salman Abedi set off an improvised bomb on Monday night as crowds streamed out of a concert.

May mentions "Operation Temperer" which has been prepared since 2015 (as The Telegraph details)
More than 5,000 soldiers could be deployed on the streets of Britain in the wake of major terrorist attacks, under a secret Government plan, it has emerged.

The troops would be sent to guard key targets in major cities if Isil or other terror groups launched multiple attacks on UK soil, under the plan, codenamed Operation Temperer.

Details of the operation were disclosed by the Mail on Sunday after accidentally being uploaded to the National Police Chiefs Council website last week.

Officers had been briefed on the plan by Deputy Chief Constable Simon Chesterman, the ‘national lead’ for armed policing, during an NPCC meeting in Leicester in April.

Under the heading ‘counter terrorism post Paris large scale military support to the police’, minutes of the meeting disclosed that up to 5,100 troops could be deployed “based on force assessments of how many military officers could augment armed police officers engaged in protective security duties”.

Soldiers would serve alongside armed police officers to protect against further attacks while plotters were hunted down.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Defence said: “The MOD works closely with other government departments and agencies to ensure that it is able to provide appropriate assistance in response to any security threats, including national security. We keep contingency plans under constant review.”
May says the public should not be "unduly alarmed" and says the deployment is proportional to the situation. The good news is these 'critical' alerts usually do not last long...

  1. We're getting off lightly bearing in mind the fact that we supported "regime change" that turned a country that was the envy of her neighbors into a terrorist shithole.

    Every year we support the Zionist Jewish Neo-Con-Artist controlled USA who last year alone dropped nearly 30,000 bombs on Arab nations. Thirty thousand bombs! I'm surprised that for all the shit we spread around the world on behalf of our controllers the Zionist Jews, bombing the living shit out of people who have nothing to do with us, that the UK isn't getting far more "terrorist" though I would call it retaliatory trouble than we have actually received. 30,000 US, UK et al. bombs!

    How about turning the fucking with other nations level to Zero? I bet that would work better than this shit.

    Vote Angelo for instigator of Open Direct Government by the people, ...who needs these bought and paid for ass-masters like our 'Pry' Minister?

    ...Crypto currency encryption can free us from the shackles that are these treacherous intermediaries by giving us all the facility to vote by ourselves from our phones/computers on every local, national and world issue.

    Which of us would vote for wars that would warrant this sort of retaliation? No one I have ever met who isn't a politician.

    We would have gone to war, cold or otherwise, with any nation that was exposed as Israel aka JSIL was recently, trying to bring down UK government ministers who have sympathy for the poor Palestinians who are victims of Jewish apartheid and settler colonialism in the 21st century, as recently described by the UN.

    Anyone except Israeli Jews who have a better grip on our government expenditure, our taxes, our money, to drop bombs on Arabs, than we the people have to use it to save our NHS and look after our own growing number of homeless beggers.
