They are expecting terrorist attacks & flying saucers?

I wonder if they have scared everyone enough that no one will go?

Israel’s President Shimon Peres has cancelled his trip to the Olympics, and they have a world class intelligence agency that I bet warned him not to go.

Anyone with any sense whatsoever should be as far from London as possible during this.

MoD fury as soldiers forced to carry out menial security tasks for Olympic Games

The Daily Telegraph understands that defence chiefs have angrily complained to Olympic organisers, accusing them of mismanaging their security contract and leaving the Armed Forces to bear the burden.

The Ministry of Defence last year said that 13,500 military personnel would be assigned to Olympic duties, with 7,500 of them in security roles at Olympic venues.

It is understood that another 3,500 troops have now been told to prepare for duties at Games sites. More troops have now been given ‘notice to move’ orders, an Army source revealed.

Defence sources said that the total military contribution to the Games is now likely to reach 20,000 personnel – more than a tenth of the entire Armed Forces.

Quote:...an army of students are playing a key part in the biggest security operation in Britain since World War II.

They have been recruited from colleges under a scheme called ‘Bridging the Gap’ and have attended four-day Security Industry Authority (SIA) training courses to qualify as guards.

Many of the students were 17 when they were trained, but rules stipulate they must have turned 18 by July 1 to be taken on for Olympics security work.

Following each course, the students undertook another day’s training in the use of X-ray and metal-detecting equipment.

An informed source, close to G4S Olympics recruitment procedures, told the Mail: ‘I have grave concerns about the deployment of college students as security guards.

So many threats, so little time. 15.gif

Quote:Irish republican terrorists could attack the Olympics while American and Israeli athletes may be a target for al Qaeda, MI5 fears.

The security service has also warned that foreign rival factions or ethnic groups could use the world stage of the Games to attack one another.

So, they want people to actually think they have their own little personal terrorists (like forum trolls) based on what group you fall into?

Its because G4S private security firm who were handed a multi million £ contact for the games apparently can't deal with it. There has been articles about poor training, where weapons during tests have gotten into the stadium. coffeetime.gif
