Clearly forgetting many previous wars, including one where Germany dropped over 50,000 bombs on jolly old England, a few days ago British Prime Minister David Cameron told the UK — and the rest of the world — that ISIS is a “greater and deeper threat to [Britain’s] security than [ever] seen before.”
According to British Intelligence, an attack on British soil is now “highly likely,” and because of this the (arbitrary) terror level has been moved up to “severe.” This is despite the fact British Intelligence hasn’t obtained any information pertaining to a possible attack.
Not surprisingly, these fear-tactic comments and the upping of the UK’s terror level came with news that new anti-terror laws would be put into place immediately, along with “government plans to intensify its intelligence sharing with fellow EU member states.”
The new laws will give the British Government the authority to automatically revoke the passports of any UK, foreign, or dual nationals suspected of the possibility of committing a terrorist act, as defined by government itself, of course. This also means border patrol officers will be able to seize passports while a person is being investigated for the color of their skin — in the most pessimistic yet realistic way of looking at it.
“the new measures allow intelligence agencies to access airline passenger data and carry out additional security screening. There are also plans to allow airport border police to temporarily seize suspects’ passports while they investigate.”
Opposition to Cameron’s cabinet criticized the move to raise the terror threat level, aptly pointing out the measures being implemented are infringements on civil liberties. Those who follow the global chess game know all too well the threat level was raised in order to accomplish just that.
More profiling, more loss of rights, and more illegal detainment. This coming a few weeks after Iranian military sources fingered Britain as being a main creator and supporter of ISIS, and a few days after a Pentagon document was leaked stating “the Western forces support” the rebel groups of the Middle East. Add those pieces to the NSA files leaked by Edward Snowden that show Western intelligence agencies are working together in an effort to spy on every person on the planet at all times, and suddenly the “severe” rating being announced at the same time new terror laws are introduced makes logical sense as nothing but a step towards accomplishing that Draconian goal. It’s a smokescreen if there ever was one.
