Just in case anyone wonders what is eventually coming to our own shores, here is a live webcast.
Martial Law Bitchez!
This time it's not about Rodney King.
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.
Post of the day!
LOL. But this is bullish for reconstruction. WTF guys, didn't we learn anything from Japan?
Would it be possible to start a pool to guess the first major city in the US to burst into flames spontaneously?
All in on LA anyone that has been there recently would agree...hard pressed to find someone betting against that!
I'd split it evenly among LA, New Orleans, and Chicago. But I wouldn't write off Houston, so maybe a bit of a punt in there.
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.
Doubt it would be Houston... probably some other place where it isn't so easy to buy guns.
I'm betting on Washington D.C. As soon as they cut back on the hand-outs.
In D.C. 65% are on some kind of welfare and they can see the politicians responsible for screw up.
I'd go with Baltimore
Damn I forgot all about Baltimore! Yeah, it is as bad off as LA for sure, some parts of Atlanta may go crazy, too...for like a minute or two!
wish there was one of those google news maps tracking all the teen mob violence.. it looks like those might spark the fires eventually
philly just got a youth curfew at 9pm whatever the hell that means since cops just want to write parking and traffic tickets and not chase kids around for free
haha yeah, during the civil rights movements houston stayed quite. even with it's large black demographic. guns and mutually assured destruction are both pretty effective.
I call East St. Louis. Wonderful place.
They'll just enlarge the scope of the Olympics project to include this. Tottenham rocks for the Olympic rings!
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.
The real shame is that I could have been there in 10 minutes and have a free HDTV, but I'd rather chill.
When things get to Lebanon, 70's style, then you'll know, mission accomplished.
If the cops went in there and nipped it in the bud, the sheep wouldn't get to watch the edifying spectacle of the poloi running riot... whom only their beloved government can quell.
Police chief: "So! You think cuts in the police budget are a good idea? Watch this, mofo!"
Funny! Sad! +1 or -1... ;-)
Why would Qadaffi do that? His money and favorite hedge fund money is in London.
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.
Haha, qaddafi would fit right into London's east end. For obvious reasons.
Nah, East end is Nigerians. Qaddafi is definitely South London. Clapham most likely.
East end is Bangladeshi- Clapham is generally english people who can't afford Battersea. Battersea is generally people who can't afford Chelsea.
You must be unaware of the hoards stored in the Estates throughout Clapham. Go visit sometime - and not the high street.
Nope. Marble Arch and the Edgeware Rd. Pretty nice place actually, and great Ranoush places.
HAHAHAHAHAHA. But shouldn't they be in France?
Did you see the part where the cops came and arrested the Koreans for trying to protect their propery?
Yep. Reminded me of the riots in Tibet led by Tibetans against Han run stores.
The US condemned China restoring order in Tibet. I wonder if US citizens will do the same in this case.
Just kidding actually...
azizonomics, bringing zero hedge readers the inside track on the social disintegration of britain since 2011.
Jesus H. Christ, dude, I refuse to even consider clicking on your link due to your excessive overpromotion on here today. Hooray, you have a blog! So does everyone else.
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.
Uh oh, you see I read the English press and had no idea things had been kicking off outside of London.
Fucking spurs fans. Where's the territorial army to sort that shit out?
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.
OK now in CROYDON... burning LIDL and some other shops.... this is madness.
Right-o. Saw another comment posted on the BBC lead news story...
"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."
Panic on the streets of LondonPanic on the streets of BirminghamI wonder to myselfCould life ever be sane again?
+1 You, Sir, beat me to the punch.
twitter down, facebook down. what next. DOD shutting net down under COMSEC cover?
I have friends who are using landline phones as mobile signal appears DEAD. That is near to Hackney BTW.
Are they closing down communications?
Curfew Law Bitchez. It's already here. Philly Mayor Nutter sets weekend curfew for “a tiny minority of ignorant, reckless fools.”
COBRA meeting 9 AM tomorrow -- PM cutting short vacation as situation significantly worsens.
Probably the first major state of emergency in the UK in 35+ years, and probably a major crackdown (probable martial law) soon after.
Looks like we're in for a barbeque summer after all.
Home made flamethrowers, screw the Geneva Convention!
Well, that's one way to get the insects out of the woodwork. Now they can clear out the riff-raff before next summer's Olympic Games.
Thank goodness Obummer got it started, the bbq, last week on the roof of the WH.
Nothin like the smell of burning bitchez in the morning.
Welcome to our future.
They are global warming us! Stop them now!
Get yer guns while you still can...
Just some kids enjoying their summer vacation LONDON STYLE BITCHEZ!!
There is some good history of riots in the north too, they're fairies in London, coming soon TOXTETH STYLE BITCHEZ!!!
Most Brits aren't allowed to possess firearms.... What a backwards society the UK has become.
but they do still watch reruns of McGuyver!
1 RUBBERBAND AND A PAPERCLIP WILL TAKE OUT 20 PIGS AND STOP A TANK!
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 limits............best 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?
Ah. So guns are not for avoiding tyranny in government but to keep social order as it is supposed to be...
Excellent. These are unusual times indeed, when US citizens breach on their propaganda and start to be honest about their thoughts.
Puzzling and possibly worrisome.
Yeah, because gun ownership can't help avoid tyranny AND keep social order. Fool!
No, they can't. But they can establish a firm 1/2 mile perimeter on my land that guarantees lead poisoning if some shitbag crosses the line.
The whole Fucking London is burning now ! I don't know what you folks are watching but we have fire all over the town ! I just hear 200strong groups runing around burning shops and houses...
Just heard that number from a trapped pubworker just now on the BBC live stream. All fucking Hell is breaking loose in London.
Tell me about it Amigo !
I am stuck here in London because of my woman, and I can't even have a small firearm... BullShit BIG TIME dude ! I saw this retards throwing bricks few feet from the police and they just watched ! This is insane! If that was in Canada the retard was on the ground in no time, if in America he was inside the police car already and if was in Mexico the fucktard was dead !!!
But here they watch ! And the public have no weapons to protect them selves... I am thinking in going for a quick trip in eastern Europe and shop for some antisocial behaviour products...
I just returned from L.A. last night and that's one place you don't want to be with starving people. Doomed.
where's the marshmallows?
Glad I didn't go to London this summer...
wait 'till the Establishment starts getting serious. Right now this is just letting the kiddies have their tantrum.
Those 2 trees are horified they will get infected.
Someone attempting a partial stick save on the DOW. I wonder how much that is costing.
there's no fucking way it goes green..
No, not green, but at least the DOW starts with 11,XXX and not 10,XXX. And, S&P above 1150 might make a few happy. Pointing down again now, I doubt they can paint 11,000.
yeah, sorry.. the "partial" didn't register as I was watching the blood bath take place.. down ~605 as i type this. holy shit stick bat man.. this is a crushing sell off.. brutal..
I'm not sure it will close over 11,000.
And failing miserably
Yep. 604 down. Wow, what a day.
sometimes poor illegal african immigrants need to get some free stuff. its all good.....
My God. The CO2 footprint.
Mild, soccer-riot limey stuff. No big deal. Real Americans will do much better: Gunfighter Nation.
But that's why we don't riot, at least not yet. Too many guns. It will take a higher threshold of pain because the violence is potentially so much greater.
May never happen. If it does, though, body armor is the thing.
Nah. US citizens do not riot because it is a US world order, a world organised to enable and support US way of life.
Nobles accross history have seldom rioted on ground of theirs standards of life. Makes no sense when you have organised all society to serve your needs...
US world order.
Some guy get killed in Fulerton CA and still you dont riot , yes thats right pussy whiped springs to mind, America will never riot because you need a pair of balls to do so.
You, sir, are confusing restraint with meekness.
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.
Let's say the 42M on food stamps are the poor. And the top 1% are the rich. That leaves about 250 million middle class, many of which own firearms and know how to use them. You keep thinking that what has not happened in the past will not happen in the future. Keep pushing troll, you'll find out.
The guns and the checks. That's all that prevents this from happening every night in the United States.
The black-on-white stuff popping up all around is just part of the bloody problem.
"If it does, though, body armor is the thing."
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.
85 broad streets next i heard they did a trial run on the etrade building in st lou. the baby better get a fire extingiser
Why are they rioting?
Robotrader and Hamywanger pushed them over the edge.
Some guy who heard another guy say to a guy that a guy told him the guys at the pub said Football SUCKS!
Why aren't you?
They are angered at not being part of Euroland...
They were protesting because police shot and killed a guy.
They started rioting when the police beat a 16 year old female protester. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcwUyZ68C0k
Summer of recovery.....
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.
Your a genius
Those Brits should knaw the fuck out of those cops with their crooked snaggled teeth.
+ 1 Drunken Hooligan LOL
It's beautiful man!
White RiotI want a riotWhite Riota riot all my own
Play me some 'o that Hutu/Tutsi Rag! Otis, My Man!
Yup, Martial Law on it's way.
Forget Posse Comitatus...troops will be positioned in a city near you.
Prepare. See US Rep. Roscoe Bartlett discuss what's ahead at http://www.urbandanger.com
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...
Lest anyone forget.. and there is not a dimes worth of difference between the Nixon administration and the yahoo's in control now.
riots are transitory, right?
Where's a cactus when you need one..
READY AND WAITING TO GO.
Let it burn mofo's, let it burrrrrn!!!
But...but...they said multicultural immigration was a chance for England !
But... but... most of these people rioting are YOUNG WHITE YOUTHS?!?!?!
But,... but... I thought only foreigners rioted...
Oh yeah, you're absolutely right baby ! Tottenham is known to have lots of BLOND HAIRED SWEDISH immigrants, how could I forget ?!?!?!?
What I chance we have them in Europe ! They built our whole continent and they love us so much !
What? I thought it was the blacks who were rioting? Now it's the whites?
The Whites are responsible for everything ! They are the devil !
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.
Dear marvelous Swedish immigrants,
Could you please go down to the City to enlight with your civilized manners the wonderful people of the financial world that brought you in against our will ?
Thanks in advance.
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.
There is only one trend here : expansionisme of the Swedish immigrants.
These riots are exponential all over Europe where these wonderful Stockholm borned immigrants are located even with a strong social security system.
Anybody else think it's kinda stupid to light your own neighborhood on fire when you're pissed off?
It worked out well in 64 here
burn down the jail , nope no biggie.
shovel ready dudes!
"Try to learn instead of burn, hear what I say." -- Hendrix
You got to clear the field first.
burn em out.
I'd rather not be a drama queen, thank you very much.
What happened? Did Harry Redknapp sell Peter Crouch?
Any green shoots?
No, but there was a black shot.
How did the cops shoot someone? I always thought the British were more civilized and didn't arm the Bobbies.
Those days are long gone. You routinely see cops with guns in London now.
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.
Wait until they take away RIOT DOGS@TM kibbles$bits.........
wait too long and you are starved out SO.........................
Riot or Die DOGS!
I say agin - Cowboy Up Buckeroos. The rodeo is near.
This is the face of AUSTERITY
You probably mean England and Europe cannot afford to assist the marvelous Swedish immigrants anymore. Maybe it is time to go back to Stockholm ?
Nah, it means that Europe has saturated the whole world and no more expansion is possible. Then internal unrest is the way.
World is running out of Indians to sponsor that fabulous world humanity friendly project named US citizens.
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.
Coming to our shores? What I see playing out here is ridiculous because cops here would have tased the shit out of these kids. imo
Both sides will be heavily armed in America.
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.
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.
