Manchester


The bomber would have seen his victims very clearly when they left the Manchester Area last night .
Young girls, teens, many holding pink balloons and wearing silly fluffy ears, parents waiting for their children...soft targets.
He could have chosen to abort his " mission" then and there but he didn't .....and now, no doubt, he's resting in his eternal paradise?

  1. 'The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones'. It was true in Shakespeare's time, and is still true today.

  3. I first heard about it on LBC just around 11pm when no one really knew what was going on. Have listened on and off during the night.....it just gets worse every time! Lovely to hear about people opening their homes and taxi drivers taking people home for free. I am sure that there is much more good than evil, but the evil does so much damage in one short moment.

  4. God-awful event! All words fail.

  5. For zealots, the end always justifies the means. More death; more blood; more hate; more families torn apart: all grist to the mill, for the 'true believers'.

  6. A depressing factor in all this is the knowledge that these sort atrocities may not die out with the perpetrators. Someone said - looking on a slightly more positive side - that at least it means that there is one less jihadi on the streets, but there are over 1000 suspects in Britain alone. Almost all of them have lead a pointless life of petty criminality.

    As in Northern Ireland, there will be a whole new generation growing up in the world who will know of no alternative to the 'jihad', having been brainwashed with hatred by their parent's generation. When the troops first moved in to places like Iraq, their catch-phrase was 'hearts and minds'. How right they were.

  8. Just been watching it on the news this morning .. and it brought me to tears. What a world we live in!! Can't imagine the fear that the poor parents felt, dropping off their teenagers for a fun night out and then finding out what had happened. A mother was interviewed as her daughter was still missing. She said her husband, friends and neighbours and people she didn't even know were out looking for her - heartbreaking!

  9. Awful news, I was thinking of going to one of the concerts myself.

  10. Many of those involved were parents picking up. The jihadis are whooping it up on Twitter right now saying more is to come. It beggars belief.

    1. Me too. I don't believe he's 'resting' anywhere, not even in 'hell'. But at least he's blown to bits so he won't have a burial.

  13. There is so much hate in this world and we pay the price with the horror that it brings about. We live with the fear of anytime and any place. It is all so heartbreaking and frightening.

  17. I know, he stood amongst those children, hearing their excitement and happiness and then choose to wipe them out.......

  18. So awful. What sort of sickness motivates such a thing?

  19. The question is why? What does this accomplish? What teachings tell them that this is justified for any reason? Prayers for all....

  20. We live in a world of slogans and illusions - certainly not in reality. The belief or even hope that the bomber would have abandoned his bloody plan if only he would have seen the victims -is dangerous. No chance of that to happen and the authorities must do the preventive job without any compromise.

    1. Of course he wouldn't abandon his plan. He had no respect for life. Anyone's life. Not even his own.

  21. Why? I just don't get it. How can anyone justify killing innocent people? It's sickening.

  23. A late night text from our son Jack who lives in Manchester to say don't worry Mum l'm at home,safe.. Some of his friends were at the concert and of course other people's loved ones. What a wicked act. To what purpose? Pointless and terrifying in equal measure. Jean

  24. This is when I hope there really is reincarnation, when evil sick people come back as cockroaches etc ... that is all they are, in human form .
    Something has to be done and it will take World Leaders like the sort we used to have ... leaders with b*lls ... (men & women ) to do something and F*ck this politically correct BS that we are living with ...

    1. Sadly, there are no leaders today. A leader leads his people whereas the present heads of state are led by the people. See Cameron with his referendum. See Theresa May who has announced a referendum after the elections. A referendum is the tool of the non-leader.

    2. Well, there are a few or maybe a couple that might surprise us / me and show some promise in the "leader" category. I guess we will wait and see.

  25. We are all devastated ... young young girls and their mothers as targets. But so proud of the Mancunian response...

  26. What does an act like this accomplish? Terror does nothing to further any goals of extremists it only makes the sane world want to wipe them off the face of the earth! STUPID

  27. I cannot comprehend the why, the sense, the dreadful awful of it all. Like someone said . . . this was a person, standing in the midst of young children, teens . . . and does this.
    Innocense . . . gone . . this is just so wrong, unfair, awful . . .

  28. How can anyone do such a thing? Just...how?

    1. You would have to be as sick and depraved as they are to understand them. Thank God you don't understand them.

    2. Not sick and depraved; just realistic - not ignore the obvious, and of course,take action where and when needed.

  30. There are no words to describe the evil blob of humanity that did this, but there are lots of words to describe the wonderful, selfless heroic people who rushed to the aid of the dying and injured. The taxi drivers that took people away from the scene free of charge, back safely to their homes or just out of the city, the hotels that flung open their doors for people to shelter in whilst they re-united with loved ones, the police, fire and ambulance services that were there within minutes. SO proud of my son today, he was one of the many faceless individuals behind the scenes handling 999 calls and getting help to where help was needed ... a normal shift that turned into something heart-breaking for all the call handlers.

    Sue, a proud Mancunian ... and Mum. xx

  31. This atrocity is both sickening and very sad. R.I.P to the deceased's. My heart goes out to their families, the injured and their families. The support, kindness and compassion from the Manchester people and the emergency services is truly amazing.

    To anyone who has friends and/or family in Manchester, I hope they are safe.

    1. They behave like demented animals then hide behind some "God " ... as if there was any God who would condone something like this .. the killing of children ? innocent people ?
      And I can not possibly understand anyone who would do something like this . They are not normal, they are not sane, they are sick and depraved.

  33. A terrible thing to happen, I hope its the LAST TIME it's completely insane.

  34. Let's pray that this vicious fool has already found out there is no such thing as eternal paradise - only continual hell.

  36. I remember waking up in the days after 9/11 and still being surprised why it was so quiet out and then the memories rushing in and the sadness lowering over me again.
    The response took a little while but it was a response.
    There has to be a big response here ... mourning and sadness are normal and only show these people who were killed , were loved.
    But everyone , in whatever way they can and that means government leaders, must respond to this with a huge definite reply ... They cannot think they can ever do something like this again. Enough is enough.

  37. The youngest victim was only 8 years old. She was the same age as my eldest Grandaughter. The sadness of it all is overwhelming.

  42. My thee grandkids have all been to Ariana Grande concerts here in Canada. They sure wanted to talk about how sad and scary this has been for them, and really for all of us. There is evil in this world, a prayer helps,music helps and just getting out there and living your life helps. So very sad.

  43. Such a tragedy!

  44. My daughter's friends were at that concert thankfully unhurt but saw dead bodies there only 10 and I reckon that will live with them. Truly awful!
