Get Ready for Surface-to-Air Missiles on London Rooftops During the Olympics
My God, when a society has to go to this extent to “protect” itself, something has gone terribly wrong and it might want to take a look at what and why.
This is no joke:
London 2012: Missiles May be Placed at Residential Flats
The Ministry of Defence is considering placing surface-to-air missiles on residential flats during the Olympics.
An east London estate, where 700 people live, has received leaflets saying a “Higher Velocity Missile system” could be placed on a water tower.
A spokesman said the MoD had not yet decided whether to deploy ground based air defence systems during the event.
But estate resident Brian Whelan said firing the missiles “would shower debris across the east end of London”.
The journalist said: “At first I thought it was a hoax. I can’t see what purpose high-velocity missiles could serve over a crowded area like Tower Hamlets.
“They say they’ll only use them as a last resort, but… you’d shower debris across the east end of London by firing these missiles.”
Mr Whelan, who claims to have seen soldiers carrying a crate into the building, said his property management company put up posters and gave out the leaflets on Saturday.
He continued: “They are going to have a test run next week, putting high velocity missiles on the roof just above our apartment and on the back of it they’re stationing police and military in the tower of the building for two months.
My sense of the Olympic games is that they are designed to promote friendly competition amongst nations and to bring diverse cultures together. If the Olympic games have devolved into the need to put surface-to-air missiles on roofs, the heart and soul of the tradition is gone. Let’s be done with it.
Aside from that, It’s hard to know who’s doing the terrorizing here. The British government or some unknown entity they’re trying to protect people from.
