IMMEDIATE DANGER OF TERRORIST ATTACK



IMMEDIATE DANGER OF TERRORIST ATTACK IN BRITAIN

Yesterday evening, on the Britain's most widely watched TV news
magazine, "Tonight", hosted by Sir Trevor McDonalds on ITV, an
independent investigation revealed that there is a serious risk of a
terrorist attack in the UK and warned that neither the public or the
authorities are prepared.[1] Those who are aware of the danger have no
excuse for being caught unprepared.

The investigation quoted from official reports[2] on Britain's
readiness for terrorism, published by the government's own
investigators the Emergency Planning Select Committee[3] and the
National Audit Office[4]. The official reports severely criticise the
government for failing to address the problem, and raise two main
concerns about the dangers of a large terrorist incident: (1) the
emergency and security services are not prepared, and (2) the
government is not informing the public about the risks or the survival
measures.

During the documentary an emergency planning expert criticised the
popular complaint that warning people about the risks may cause alarm
or panic as "a complete failure to face up to the present danger."

The British Prime Minister, Tony Blair, said: "The dilemma is taking
preventive measures without destroying normal life."


THE AUTHORITIES ARE UNABLE TO WARN YOU UNTIL THEY HAVE DETAILS OF A
SPECIFIC THREAT AT A KNOWN TARGET. WE CAN WARN YOU HERE AND NOW ABOUT THE RISK OR TERRORISM AND HOW TO PREPARE.

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN SURVIVAL AND START LEARNING ABOUT THE DANGERS AND PRECAUTIONS IMMEDIATELY.
