The police chief for the City of London financial district says that terrorists have surveyed targets in the area and that it’s more a matter of when than if. This shouldn’t be a big surprise. It only confirms that there are thousands of important “soft targets” and that enough terrorists willing to trade their lives to take the lives of others will eventually manage to do so. It just further proves why going after the terrorists on their turf is so important.
London Financial Area May Be Terror Target
“We are vulnerable, there are people out there who wish us harm and we should be aware of that,” the police chief told The Associated Press. “If you hit the financial center of the United Kingdom, it’s a high-profile thing to do.”
Asked if it was a question of when the financial district would be struck, rather than if, Hart replied: “Yes, I don’t doubt that at all.”
