Saw it firsthand, the only people who were half way prepared were the Korean shop owners that were armed to the teeth, they knew that the cops were going nowhere near where they were so they took care of business themselves and survived.

Qadaffi's troops have taken over London and are looting the town.
This is a major blow to NATO forces.

I've lived in the Detroit area, nothing but miles upon miles of youths ready to lite the tinder.

They have years of experience, especially on Devils Night.

Yeah but isn't most of Detroit being bulldozed anyway to be turned to urban farmland because no one wants to live there? Wouldn't burning the place actually help things along?!

Exactly. Detroit is already post-apocalypse. If anything, it's likely to see hoards of its masses go around and clean the place up. Anything else that happens there is a moot point.

That lone unfortunate event happened in Tottenham on Saturday, and the rioting (if any) should have stayed there. Those imbecile hooligans had all night sat and sunday to very immaturely show their displeasure, and even that was too much. And here comes monday and same thing happens, from midday onward, burning cars, breaking windows in local businesses.

The worst part is, theyre doing this in THEIR part of town. I could obviously care less cause i never visit such places, but it goes to show their irrationality knows no barriers. Quite a shame people like that exist only because of others that actually support them, directly or otherwise.

London should grow some balls and bring in the army on their asses. Dunno how the British army is but i assume its a bit more serious than the cops who are standing back watching as pillaging occurs.

but not in Tottenham. Q-daffy is a west sider not an east sider. Just look at Libya, he owns the west of it. I think he likes the west end of London like all Oligarchs and loves to see north, east and south burn. Logical camelese.

It is not only LONDON.  It is also in Birmgham (north england), things are getting nasty and overnight will be insane I think.

I have seen many interview'ees being cut off from the camera when they start saying :


"Well the bankers looted this country so what is wrong with the young looting shops"  I laughed but it is serious.  It is no longer about the wanna be gangster brap brap that was shot last week... this is/could go onto the bankers in the City as well... they better take some holiday imho.

uhh if you're joking around then I would reply with a comment about the Yid Army and the TA.  Things were bad in Britain in the 70s, my spidey senses tell me if this begins to spread across the estates, it will be bad in every city. Actually the more I think about it, mobs begin to take over city centres across the country and the army is fighting on 3 fronts in Arabia and Libya.

I was just joking. But if things get out of control it could be. I don't think there will be any fighting in Libya or any other country if that happened, though. On the plus side, the UK would return to a net export country with oil if it did happen, so that might be a good thing.

"At least for now, the violence in this half of London seems to have abated. I was talking to one young man who had received on his BlackBerry a list of places where he said there will be further trouble tonight.

He didn't tell me which places and stressed it is speculation. But he and a friend told me frustration with poverty in the area was boiling over."

That's what PC, and SOCIALISM brings to a country.

Most folks do not know, during WWII, America sent firearms to the Brits, as their ass was being handed to them.

American citizens, sent PERSONAL firearms by the hundreds of thousands, to the Brits for their homeland  defense.

If it matters, the reason, was they were subjects, not citizens, had no Constitution, and their Government would not allow them to own much of anything, except shotguns.

Then, after WE all defeated Der Fuhrer,and the war was won.

The Brits, promptly disarmed their subjects yet AGAIN.

The title to this article,is off a tad.

IF it starts here, it will be like a new war.................not just fires, rock throwing,molotoff's,and broken shit.

 It will be MAYHEM,Dead,dying, shot, woulded,murdered, and basically HELL on earth here.

No mambi pambi shit IF it starts here.American people are Painfully ( at times) peaceful folks, but once they are pushed past their choose a side.

We talk THE SHTF here a lot. MOST are clueless to what that really means if it starts here.

blablabla arms makes citizens. I could even agree somewhat if you wouldn't be preaching.

Hey! Because they are unarmed they can have their angry demonstration much earlier, the police looks worse and the politicos take notice. There is some value in that.

As your countrymen all wrote above, if they were armed, the police would use nazi techniques and there would be rivers on blood on the street.

At least there is some escalation room left, eh?

Restraint? US citizens?

No. US citizens do not know restraint. They can not self limit. Look around yourself and observe.

What US citizens do not do something, that is usually because they cant do it or have nothing to gain doing it.

This is a US world order. The world is organised to satisfy US citizens' needs.

Again, expecting US citizens to riot is likely expecting the nobles to riot in the 1700s. Did not happen and for sound causes.

Same now.

Better make sure you have the ceramic trauma plate inserted and weave your noggin' around from time to time. Body armor (at least the kind 99.99% of the civilian populace would have) hit by a .223, NATO 7.62 or 7.62x39 is like a stick of butter trying to stop a soldering iron. Not very effective.

They were protesting because police shot and killed a guy.


They started rioting when the police beat a 16 year old female protester.

It ain't the Summer of Love.

Though 'weed, whites and wine' might exert a calming effect, if the authorities had the wits to set up medication tents.

Yup, Martial Law on it's way.

Prepare.  See US Rep. Roscoe Bartlett discuss what's ahead at

Good luck guys.

The only problem I have with that statement being a former troop is how many of them do you think are gonna play that game? If they told me to go occupy a US city I would've been like fuck off, I am outta here. I suspect a substantial amount of joes would say the same, especially if it is wide spread, no they will get foreign troops to do it, they have less reservations about killing 'merikans, and well, we have less reservations about killing them. Plus those blue berets stand out well against the desert sand...

Not for everything but for the current world order, yes. Blatant fact.

A world order based on duplicity, injustice, propaganda and domination.

20 pc of the world population now own and control 85 pc of the world resources, not much room left to expand.

That is the way it is.

The financial world has done nothing so far they were allowed by popular will in the West.

There is only one trend here and the results of: expansionism.

These riots are epiphenomenal.

These riots are exponential all over Europe where these wonderful Stockholm borned immigrants are located even with a strong social security system.

Yep, now someone in the Brit military needs to show them which end of the Glock the round comes out of.

The reason they are NOW carrying, was the UK Pols, in their USUAL infinite wisdom, took away ALL firearms(crime rate w/guns went off the chart,AFTER they took them away from law abiding), and if you have one, it's a lock up at a local gun club.Or you do not get one.

Also, do NOT defend your life, or family there, as you will be the one tried for a Capitol crime.

Not the dude/s that are raping your wife and daughters, and /or stealing your house, whilst you watch.

Cun**,the lot of them.


What's happening in the Muslim areas of the UK??.

Usually they just burn shit, and turn over cars,after dark thirty................guess they want no part of Caucasoid revolutions.

What austerity? There hasn't been any in the uk yet. The coalition are firmly attempting to kick that particular can as far down the road as possible.

Trouble is, the can is made of the same substance found at the heart of a Nuetron star- and they're wearing ballet shoes.

The American variant on the "rioter" will scatter when the cops and military decide to get "srs."

The American version of everything is pussified--as far as our general populaton goes. 

There's too many different group mindsets in America to create some unified resistance against the oligarchs.  And as soon as things start to turn south, people will scatter and go back to their self-and-"people I give a fuck about"-preservation mode.  They let Americans have guns because they know the general population consists of a bunch of docile, pussified man-girls. 


A few weeks of "true" societal breakdown and they'll all be begging for the government and corporate teat to suck on, again.

This man speaks truth. Multi-culturalism has created an America with disparate cultural groups that distrust each other as much as they distrust the government. In my neighborhood of 96 homes I guarantee you I have 50 different countries represented easily all with 50 different cultures all living amongst each other. Each house is also packed with at least 10 per country with EXTREME overcrowding. Good luck generating unity with that shit. It will be every man for himself in this hood. Liberals have doomed us all with their PC bullshit hypocrisy.

Multi culturalism?

Word empty of any meaning in this US world order.

Lets keep it clear, it has nothing to do with multiculturalism as it has nothing to do with monoculturalism. US was clearly monocultural with negroes before the 1950s, nobody can claim that monoculturalism is a solution in the US world order.

It has to do with extortion of the weak, farming of the poor.

Those two activities indeed demand that certain actions are to be taken on extorted and farmed populations.

This is what it means.
