    Lack of terrorist attacks since 2017...

    Touch wood.. there's been no major UK terrorist attack since 2017. Although, with tensions in Palestine as they are, I doubt that will last for long.

    Back then, there seemed like there was one every 3 weeks. What's the reasonings? Counter- terrorism working overtime? a lot of the terrorists died in Syria/Iraq with ISIS? Imams and parents being more mindful of what is being taught?

    Not all terror threats are from Islamist extremists.

    Bush , which resulted in millions and millions of pounds being spent on things which were not necessary and stricter policies were brought in as a result.
    There is no problem about justifying a war on terrorism. But there is also no prospect of adequately justifying the present so-called war on terrorism.

    After its initial phase, which was directed mainly against arbitrary targets, what is called the war on terrorism appears not, or mainly not, to be directed against terrorists., everything has been happening as if the so-called war on terrorism has less and less to do with terrorism and serves increasingly as a convenient pretext for American imperialist ambitions.
