British Terror Survival Tips Ignore What to Actually Do During Attack

British Terror Survival Tips Ignore What to Actually Do During Attack
So the only options are being resigned to the inevitable, putting pressure on the wounds and cleaning up the gore?

“We can’t stop every terror attack,” International Risk Mitigator Lloyd Figgins admits to The Telegraph readers. “Here’s how we can train our citizens to survive them.”

“International Risk Mitigator”?

He’s “a former police officer, soldier and expedition leader,” his Amazon profile tells us. Aside from being the author of a book that tells how he’s almost been a violence victim on several occasions, he presents himself as an expert on “choosing the right seat on an aircraft  [and] surviving a terrorist attack.” He’s also CEO of LFL Global Risk Mitigation, which operates all over the world, ostensibly helping clients make the losses, pain and costs of hostile actions less severe (if we’re to correctly understand what the term “mitigate” appears to promise).

So how will he mitigate risks for citizens caught up in a terror attack?

He starts with situational awareness, which is pretty much common sense. Our own Jeff Cooper came up with a “Color Code” that encompassed the elevated stages, but importantly, he included an active response component enabling individuals to, you know, stop the threat. Figgins does not go that far, probably because subject disarmament edicts make a self-defense response … problematic.

“With Islamic State strongholds in places like Mosul beginning to fall, more and more jihadi fighters will return to Britain,” Figgins notes. What he doesn’t address is why an “imported” population with a belief system inimical to Western values has been inflicted on the native population in the first place, nor does that acknowledge the inevitable radicalism such enclaves breed and incubate.

Basically, it sounds like his plan is to make the public aware of telltale signs to watch for (without committing the unforgiveable xenophobic sin of stereotyping or profiling), and then to alert the authorities. We have that here, too with DHS urging us “If you see something, say something” (which might be an option if people who did weren’t then ridiculed by Democrats for being bigots).

OK though – we get “be aware,” and if something seems amiss, call the cops. But what if action is going down right now, and it’s too late for that?

First, those thinking of perpetrating an atrocity are warned there’s no place they can hide without being caught. That’s an almost laughable assumption considering those radicalized enclaves.

Then we’re told of the need for first aid training, again, not something that will stop a murdering terrorist in the act. The message here is we can’t stop such an attack, we can do nothing when one is in progress, and the best we can hope for is to do what we can to keep victims from bleeding out before the ambulances arrive.

Not meaning to second-guess a globalist expert or our friends “across the pond” here, but I seem to recall words about something “being necessary to the security of a free State.” That and enacting laws “to secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”…

I believe those were intended to “mitigate risks” of just such scenarios.

  1. When the extremist followers of the false prophet decide that American soft targets are the next best thing, I’m hopeful that it doesn’t occur in a gun free zone. There are enough trained gun owners especially veterans and former LEOs that would thwart an attack.

    1. I’m concerned about the grid going down in 3 places…#1 it was orchestrated by some agency #2 a terror attack ,#2 being more likely in my humble opinion.Everyone says there’s radical Muslims spread out across America, no one is watching them? Or better yet, infiltrated them ?

  2. You can stop terror attacks.
    1. Surrender and become slaves. This is exactly what ALL muslims want and is what self declared “expert” is espousing.
    2. Make all of life SO intolerable for muslims, including those who attack and those who give silent approval, that they either leave or the disavow their faith.
    Face it. The muslims HAVE been defeated in the past. We can again. But not if we tolerate those who dare defend the word, “Islamophobia.”
    This is not a phobia which is a mental disorder. This is WAR. And until we acknowledge it is WAR, we have no chance to win.
    This war has spiritual overtones as satan is working with the vile muslims.

  3. Mr. Lloyd Figgins appears to be a graduate of the Neville Chamberlain doctrine.
    Domestically; No ‘politically correct’ public statement is more reprehensible then: Shelter in Place. It’s blatantly subversive to the second amendments: A well regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free state.
    In Venezuela we can see how effective ‘shelter in place’ is for herding the human cattle into submission, prepping them for slaughter.

    Mitigate? How docile!

  4. Report, cower in fear and wait for ‘hoped for/promised’ help???
    SORRY – those not willing to defend themselves, family, friends, freedom and independence deserve what they get.

    1. Katrina is good example of no help for Citizens
      Besides door to door gun seizure. Some military stood down on that issue ,the right thing to do.You better be prepared for any and all scenario!

  5. I am about 20 pages from the back end of Cade Courtley’s “SEAL Survival Guide.” Throughout the book, he too stresses situational awareness BUT he also strongly suggests getting one’s CCW and carrying a firearm whenever possible. Well worth the read.

  6. Any and all socio-ethnic group that adheres to a life belief system of destroying others who do not adhere to theirs, truly has no respect or regard for human life. Born and bred Sociopathic Ideologies have no place in a freedom loving culture. Our freedoms have been paid for with human blood both physical and spiritual. Freedom is not free. It is well worth protecting and cherishing. “Give me Liberty or give me death” It is all a choice. “Choose Life”.
    Keep up the GOOD WORK Oath Keepers.

  7. British terror survival “tips”:
    We can’t stop every attack!
    You are unarmed by law and unable to fight back.
    Roll the dice – life’s a crap-shoot (with the emphasis on CRAP – it is against the law for you to “shoot”)

  8. “You can’t stop every attack”. Tell that to the 2 Americans who stopped what would have been a massacre on 22 Aug, 2015 on a train in Belgium. If you refuse to be a compliant victim, you can stop some and you should by any means necessary and every chance you can.

  9. Is anyone of us monitoring the extremist camped out all across our country,we had 3 grids go down, my money’s on them doing it
