Firstly, some good news from the sandpit, 'Jihadi John' has very likely been neutralised. Good riddance I say and here's to getting more of the Daesh-bags.

Good move Jamie and good riddance to the trash that hopefully ceased to exist as of Thursday.

Really, how many other kinds of terrorism are there these days? PETA ? KKK? Black lives matter? Westboro?

I'm sure Obama would approve of dropping the islamic descriptor.

Agree with you about the good news

I find it a bit distasteful to make such a big deal over "Jihadi-John". He ALLEGEDLY, beheaded westerners (beheadings were never shown on camera, unusual). What about the other hundreds of people killed by Daesh? What makes Jihadi-John so important? Doesn't this just send a message to the ordinary folks living where Daesh have influence, that only western lives matter?

Oh, and no I dont believe the beheadings didn't happen, I just think that the way the videos cut to show just the beheaded head, that it might have been someone else who did the dirty job.

Whatever the case, one terrorist less hopefully.

Dear Sirs,

is the subsim music thread gone as well?

If so, shall we turn the subsim radio on again by starting a new thread, Jimbuna?

Wait a damn second, an Islamic terrorism thread was nuked due to something other than The Usual Reason?

Colour me impressed.

I see where you're coming form Dowly, but consider the propaganda effect at play here. JJ was a huge part of Daesh public image.

Also I don't think the comparison you're making to the average Daesh militant really works. There have been hundreds of strikes killing militants, we just didn't know their names, ergo, not news.

David Cameron did take care to say today that this guy was behind the murder of "many, many moslems" as well. According to the Americans, he was "eviscerated" by the strike... a polite way of saying that the first thing that went through his mind was his arse.

Right now I'm seeing a documentary on Danish TV it's about the abduction of Hanns Martin Schleyer in the end of 1977 by the German terror group Rote Arme Fraction.

I guess we and especially German had our own struggle with political terror groups

Eh, it's a bit like Lord Haw-haw or to give him his proper name William Joyce, he was a propaganda tool, the face of Daesh to the west, so getting him is more of a message to those in the west who have sympathies towards Daesh. To those who are under Daesh influenced territory, it's debatable whether they will receive this news or it'll have a Daesh spin on it, probably focusing on the other passenger in the car with him, maybe making that person a young mother with a baby or something in the traditional 'Baby milk factory style'.
But yes, it is primarily aimed at the west.

There have been more British civilians killed by the IRA and other Irish paramilitary organisations than who have been killed by Islamic extremists.
Both terrorist groups were and are funded by our allies too...makes you think.
