UPDATES after the article
UPDATE: (H/T DB Schell) Conflicting reports but enlightening. Seems like the two suspects deliberately ran off the road, hitting a guy on the sidewalk then jumped out and finished him off, dragging him into the street. They then approached buses and other cars asking them to take their picture. Then they waited around for the cops to show up and a helicopter which whisked them away after they were “shot” by the officers.
“The guy with the gun, the tall guy with the beanie cap on, even a bus had pulled up – he was going over to the bus and asking people to take his photo.”
“When he was dead, they dragged him out into the road and left him there”
“It was strange, they didn’t run off, they just stood there as if they were waiting for the police.
“It must’ve taken about 20 minutes for the police to arrive, I think it must’ve been because they were waiting for armed police.”
“They fell to the ground. Then a helicopter landed”
“I don’t know if they died, they were taken away in the helicopter.” Information Clearinghouse
Does this make anyone else think of those two British soldiers who were caught in Iraq driving around with AK-47s and bombs dressed like Arabs?
Seems to me this is totally staged. The victim may be real, but these two guys were clearly waiting to be picked up. They wanted it to be seen and have a shocking effect on the public at large. That is why the reaction from the British government seems so out of place for what would appear at first to be a murder or road rage incident. It was staged. There is no doubt.
I just watched the video of the young guy holding the knives in the streets of Woolwich talking about what just happened. It’s heavily edited and you can see a car crashed into a pole across the street. You can also see a woman getting up off the ground next to what appears to be the body of the victim. But she wasn’t kneeling next to him as might be understandable if she were trying to help him, she was sitting on her butt right next to where his head was.
If that guy had been “beheaded” that woman wouldn’t have been anywhere near him. Certainly not that close.

The video is called “The Video of the Woolwich Terrorist”. So this is what passes as terrorism these days?
The man in the video simply says he’s sorry women had to see the violence, but it happens all the time in his country and then goes on to say if you think the government is going to keep you safe, you’re wrong and you should do away with it altogether. That’s not a terrorist threat, that’s a guy telling the truth. Cops aren’t here to protect us, they’re here to generate revenue. How many times have you heard that or said it yourself?
Whatever happened, the Brits are ready to declare war! They called a meeting of Cobra…. that’s right, G.I. Joe’s arch enemy of terrorists, to discuss what to do next in the wake of a knife attack after some kind of car accident.
“The Guardian reports that British Prime Minister David Cameron called the incident “truly shocking.” Cameron asked Britain’s home secretary to chair a meeting of Cobra, the government’s emergency committee.” Huffington Post
COBRA is a group of high ranking officials who meet in times of national emergencies consisting of the Prime Minister and other ministers as well as high ranking members of the police.
They actually convened an emergency meeting in this room for a knife attack which may or may not have been simply road rage.
The video is extremely disingenuous. The narrator claims the guy has a machete but he doesn’t. He has a common kitchen knife and a clever.
Then he says the streets are “blood soaked’ but the red on the street is paint. You can clearly see it goes all the way past where the man was lying. In fact, I’ve looked at this for some time now and I don’t see any blood around the guy at all. If there was blood near him, it would have to be on the opposite side that we can’t see in the video, and that woman would have been sitting in it. I don’t think that happened.
This is completely ridiculous. The fact that they are trying to turn it into terrorism shows how desperate they are to gin-up the community fear and loathing of anything Muslim.
If you go here to watch the RT story on this, they keep repeating phrases like “what is thought to have happened” or “what has been reported” regarding specifics of the story. Statements like those mean absolutely nothing when it comes to actual facts surrounding the case. Someone could report the guys jumped out of a spaceship and it would have as much legitimacy as what RT is reporting as facts in the case. It’s laughable but they are doing exactly what I said they were doing, demonizing Muslims.
“It’s also alleged that at the time they were uh… uh…. coming out with statements in Arabic, Allah Ackbar, God is Great… and it’s also thought that at one point “All mighty Allah, we will never stop fighting” So a lot of concern at the moment, the picture certainly being built up that this is a terror related incident” RT
Yeah. It is being “built up” into a terrorist related event… by RT obviously.
None of that has any shred of evidence at this point to back it up. They’re just making this shit up as they go along.
UPDATE 2: In the RT video, you see the same wrecked car and the same white truck still at the scene whereas everything else has been cleared out. Obviously these two vehicles were involved somehow. Is the victim a truck driver or the guy from the wrecked car on the sidewalk?
UPDATE 3: From the angle in this video, you can see the blood on the sidewalk next to where the car crashed. There is no blood on the road. The witness in the video says the car ran the victim over and that makes sense considering the fact that they hit the sign pretty hard and the blood pool is right beside the wrecked car.
