Fear-Mongering Following Saturday Night London Incident
by Stephen Lendman
It's unknown if what happened was terrorism by lone wolves, a false flag or something else.
It's well-known how the aftermath of these type events play out. State-sponsored war OF terror follows or escalates at home and abroad, facilitated by fever-pitch fear-mongering, media scoundrels part of the scheme.
Their reports repeat official accounts of what happened, suspects like three alleged lethally shot London assailants considered guilty by accusation, unable to explain their side of the story.
Headlines are used to influence reader opinions more than content following them. Here's a sampling from Western media broadsheets:
The NYT: " 'Enough Is Enough,' "Prime Minister Says After Terrorists Kill 7 in Heart of London"
The NYT: "It was Utter Horror"
The neocon/CIA-connected Washington Post: "London attack toll rises to 7 dead as Theresa May insists 'things need to change' " - ignoring the treat her government represents, what needs changing most of all.
WaPo: "London Bridge will never fall down"
WSJ: "Seven Killed in London Terrorist Attack - Theresa May says more must be done to stop radicalization; police arrest 12" - likely having nothing to do with what happened. Expect lots of witch-hunt injustice to follow.
WSJ: "In Just Eight Minutes, Early Summer Revelries Are Shattered"
Chicago Tribune: "London terror attack - 12 arrested in London as May says Britain must contain extremism" - failing to explain its epicenter is at No. 10 and neocon-infested parliament.
Los Angeles Times: " 'You won't break us. You won't break us, ever.' London defiant as police arrest 12 (patsies) in bridge attack"
Reuters: " 'Enough is enough,' says May as London recovers"
AP News: British Police Arrest 12 as Londoners Recall Night of Terror"
AP News: "The Latest: Police Confident All London Attackers Shot Dead" - state terrorists remain around, active, menacing populations at home and abroad
Al Jazeera: "May: UK election to go ahead despite London attack"
Al Jazeera: " 'Evil, evil people:' Panic and horror at London Bridge"
London Guardian: "London Bridge attack: seven dead and 21 more victims in critical condition"
London Guardian: " 'They were stabbing everyone' - Witnesses describe horror of attack"
London's Independent: "Terror strikes Britain again: Seven killed and 48 in hospital after London attack"
London Daily Mail: "Terrorist in an Arsenal shirt and his hooded jihadi accomplices were filmed sauntering into Borough Market moments after mowing down pedestrians in attack which killed seven and injured 48"
London Daily Mail: "BREAKING NEWS: Member of public caught in police crossfire as officers fired 'unprecedented 50 rounds of bullets' at attackers they thought were wearing suicide vests."
London Telegraph: "They shouted 'this is for Allah,' as they stabbed indiscriminately' - How the London terror attack unfolded."
All we know so far is the central London incident happened Saturday night, reports indicating seven deaths, 48 others injured, many seriously, and the alleged assailants lethally shot by police.
Official reports about these type incidents are suspect. Believe none of them at face value. Perhaps more will be known later on.
It's always important to ask who benefits? Clearly not ordinary Brits or people abroad UK forces attack in cahoots with Washington.
There's lots more to fear following Saturday's incident - from state sponsors of terrorism, the most ruthlessly dangerous of all.
