UK Islamic terrorist cell is threatening to blow up oil tanker in spectacular suicide attack at a major British port
 

_75718874_starSpecial forces soldiers have been deployed in mainland Britain to support the police after intelligence experts picked up info on the plot. Home Office chiefs called in the ­Ministry of Defence after uncovering the plan just days ago through a network of informants working for the intelligence services. They warned that a Muslim extremist unit is planning a ‘significant event.’

UK Daily Star  More than 40 personnel from the Special Boat Service’s maritime counter measures unit have been deployed to ports across the UK working with police to review security and mount ­surveillance operations on hundreds of arrivals and departures.

The SBS team is being supported by specialists from the Special ­Reconnaissance Regiment to monitor maritime movements across the UK around the clock.

Dressed in civilian clothes, special forces teams will blend in as workers, members of the port authority and other roles to avoid bringing any attention to themselves in a bid to foil any ­ opportunity for extremists to act.

A second force of heavily-armed personnel will be on stand-by out of public view and ready to intercept any potential threat, with bomb disposal and police anti-terrorist officers attached, all operating under police control. The SBS routinely carries out Home Office- directed exercises with the police and other organisations to prepare for any ship hijack in UK waters.

Last week David Cameron warned that Isis extremists in Syria and Iraq posed a major threat to the UK and MI5 has confirmed it is now its top priority.  The Prime Minister warned: “The people in that regime, as well as trying to take ­territory, are also planning to attack us here at home in the United Kingdom.”

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
