UK Police Thwart Copy Cat Mall Attack

Disgruntled Jehovah's Witnesses, I'm sure:

British law enforcement agencies say they have averted a plot to orchestrate a large-scale terror attack similar to the assault on Kenya's Westgate mall.

Police are questioning four men in their 20s on suspicion of terrorism after they were detained on Sunday in pre-planned, intelligence-led raids.

A British security official says the men were planning a shooting spree akin to the Westgate attack in Nairobi, in which at least 67 people died....

Metropolitan Police did not identify the suspects or say what, if any, charges, they may face. But in a series of statements, the force said the men were all British nationals between the ages of 25 and 29, with roots in Turkey, Pakistan, Algeria and Azerbaijan.

1 "...roots in Turkey, Pakistan, Algeria and Azerbaijan."
Ah, so "christian" nations, eh?

2 Same as in the US. Low life slime that does not like their life where they come from but want to create the same slime hole here.

4 "the Westgate attack in Nairobi, in which at least 67 people were dismembered and displayed ...." would be more accurate.

The only bright side here is that I, in the distant USA, can say that it was muzzlemen who plotted this, while a local citizen of the UK would be arrested for hate speech if he made the same statement.

6 Didn't Tom Clancy plot this out in one of his Jack Ryan, Jr. books? I seem to remember a plot to kill a lot of people in an American mall.
