Dissidents 'planning to attack London 2012 Olympics'?

Dunno, but the IRA used to do full recces on targets in the UK (and elsewhere) during the good old days. There is quite a lot of info in that Torygraph report so I guess there's a reason behind it being pushed out now.

If so include me in.

This was also covered by the LES so curious as to the source, and further revelations/discoveries (that will be publicised anyway) on the build up,

However a certain forthcoming HP event with 'up to' 5000 officers on duty along with 70-80 CPO's dealing with VIP's (public domain) will be kept busy throughout, and keep those in the Met's Op's room earning their shilling untill it's all over...

I thought the worst thing that would happen at the royal wedding is Peter Dow dribbling somewhere along the procession.

I ian't heard of this new republican bunch till recently but clearly whoever names these bunchs are still really fecking unoriginal. If the worst came to the worst I would expect them to have to endure a significant backlash possibly from emebers of the community they "represent"

is this not just a way of saying we are watching you, we know what your up to. why would they allow the media to publish this and ruin the chances of catching them in the act

Security theater (or whatever you call it)? Reminds people that the security services are watching and have tabs of the naughty people, makes people feel safe.

What would they attack? Killing tourists from America, Australia etc (even by accident) won't do their international support much good.
They didn't seem to be overly worried about who they killed last time round,so why would it worry them now?I don't remember them asking if any tourists were present in Warrington,The Tower of London,or Downing St.to name a few places.It didn't harm "the cause"to much,did it?

I think there will be a few more yanks/aussies etc at the olympics.

I think this is just a case of , we're watching you and don't you forget it, everyone from random nutters like peter downs,charlie veitch and david icke to serious threats will have been considered, planned for and trained against

I don't actully think that 2012 will be a target itself but i do think a few cities whos police are thinned out to the point of specials being deployed as regualr response police will get a sudden shock when a few cars go bang

What difference will that make to those psycotic idiots,THEY DON'T CARE WHO THEY KILL,OR MAIM,it's all for "the cause".They have managed to explain away every incident without once saying sorry,nothing has changed in their minds,they are right,everone else is wrong.It's all for "the cause"!

Because they care about their funding thats why.
Kill a large group of Americans (which by law means they are all Irish Americans) and they'll be biting the hand that feeds them.

I'd be interested to know post 9/11 how much funding they still get from the states
