News Talk Online August 18, 2009: Al Qaeda Claims It Plans UK Attacks
It's happened before
The British government has been saying this for months now but few people have taken notice - that homegrown terrorists will likely target the UK homeland soon. Now there's been a confirmation of sorts. As news reports are beginning to emerge which suggest an attack or attacks are likely.
According to one report, al Qaeda is warning of what it calls "spectacular attacks" in the UK.
England has a particular problem with second generation Muslims who feel disenfranchised and unassimilated, setting up an environment where such attacks have been tried before, and likely will be attempted again.
