The term “security” has come along way since I was a kid. Generally speaking, when one thinks of security at an event such as a football game or a rock concert, an image of a few steroid headed rent-a-cops comes to mind.
In 2012, the term “security” has been beefed up as rent-a-cops are simply no longer enough to protect the general populace from evil Al Qaida terrorists that lurk around every corner.
Take the London Olympics for example — where they are deploying surface-to-air missile batteries at six locations in the, “best interest” of the general public, this according to the local government.
An excerpt from NewsOnline reads;
Rapier and high velocity missile systems will be installed at those locations from mid-July and will remain there throughout the Games, the ministry said in a statement confirming the plans.
“Collectively, the systems include a range of air defense capabilities, including radar and detection equipment as well as weapons which will provide a powerful deterrent and protection against the threat of an attack from the air,” the statement said…. Other steps being taken to protect the Olympics include mooring a helicopter carrier in the River Thames and stationing RAF Typhoon jets and Puma helicopters on the outskirts of London.
One must wonder what all the security is for. Does the British government know something we do not?
Is this the pre-positioning for a staged terror attack (false flag)?
Defense Secretary Hammond told BBC.co.uk;
“We have undertaken a wide programme of engagement with the communities affected, involving relevant local authorities, landowners, MPs, council leaders, and community meetings.
“These have shown that, while people understandably have questions and concerns which we have sought to answer, broadly speaking communities are supportive of our work.”
