And now I know the Daily Mail are using this forum for their stories. OK guys  :hi: we're quite happy for this if you tell the people the truth of this whole fiasco.

True If they are attacked I think done well since the fault was theirs alone. They decided to take public money and throw away with this marriage, they could do something simpler in Windsor. But they think they are "gods" in the upper face of the earth, who are entitled to spend millions of pounds without doing anything to earn those same pounds, Money is blood if you do not respect money you end up crying at the end, they did absolutely nothing to earn that money now that they are playing down the drain, money that could go to the students finish university without protest, money that could help people get more jobs...I want to see when the people there will take it ....

Yep, we are definitely on their radar... :interview:   Though I would prefered it if the DM would report on the Middleton's weird/frivolous private life with all the queer photos we have.  (http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e329/The_Chocolate_Princess/smilies/smilies2/sheep.gif)

 Welcome to the forum Daily Mail reporter! :hi:


I hope there won't be an attack, but if some professionals plan to hit the wedding then I fear for the onlookers the most. Better skip the open carriage ride. They cannot protect everybody at the wedding. And the least that happens will be that this crusade moslem group burns Union Jacks on the streets :-X

Why ? Are you afraid she could be a target and be shot dead in her pumpkin head, à la Kennedy ? Isn't she related to him by the way ?

She would get a state funeral! And possibly be buried inside Westminster Abbey   :ick:

a state funeral would still be better than possbile Midds kids.... :ick:

kahena, may I ask, do you ever a see the possibility of a positive (for the monarchy) ending? :legs this is just all so awful :runforhills:

Like I explained in the security chat -Yes- I am afraid this could happen.
The real danger would be a sniper with a high powered military rifle. Because he could hide in every building in London... 

the range of the rifle depends on the caliber of the cartridge. larger calibers like 14.5x114mm have a maximum effective range of 1,800–2,300 meters!! (for the Americans here: it is over 2,000 yd) Two kilometers is a HELL of a lot of distance to cover for the police. The police will secure the roofs but they simply can't protect them from a professional hitman/sniper. all it takes would be a clear shot without trees and of course somebody who pays for the contract. and the holes those calibers make are big -there won't be anything left of a head and a chest trauma would most likely be fatal.

Question is: Is there a terrorist willing to spend so much money... who maybe has grudge against the monarchy,   ie. Gadaffi current leader of Libya is a billionaire, even former Egyptian president Mubarak has 40 billions, etc. They all have a grude against the western world because they lost their power base and could easily afford 500K or even one million each for a hit on the royal couple. But of course the list is longer...

I do not fear protests at the wedding -although the student and cut protest in London were severe. But the security will keep the mob in check -of that I am confident.

When William visited Oz, I was incredulous and unnerved at how easy it would have been for a sniper to get at him. Honestly, I was just walking back up to the top of the road, and the back of William was visible with no protection whatever.  :o  :nervous:

I've even got a photo of it.  :-X

Some guy asked me who it was, and it spun me out, because I wondered why he was asking ...

How is Kug related to a Kennedy ? She must have some Irish in her then ?    :unsure:
 
The thought of terror scares me. But between Egypt, Libya, Syria ETC. it is highly possible. Remember, when they killed Gaddafi's daughter he retaliated via the Lockeribie plane crash. Horrific !

She has no Kennedy blood, Lanvin, or she'd care for other people. PLUS, we woulda seen her at Hyannisport by now.  Baaaaloney.

I fail to see how this will help her at all in the present. I don't see this helping her win the respect of the system she's entering; as for the terror threats, the RF will scapegoat her in the event of an actual assault, since she is SO insistant that this wedding would be held in the midst of so much chaos.

IF, and that's a big IF, she is related to the Kennedys, then she should be Catholic.  Is that her 'mission'?  To change the Church?  Whatever her past, no one from the east coast of America is coming forth to claim her as a relative, so let's let this one go.  I even heard she's a relative of George Washington.  How does that help her towards being a Windsor and royalty?  It's all very, very bad journalism.

 :rolleyes: Oh, for goodness sake, I've got UBER wealthy, well-connected relatives in RI, USA - and they are not so distant, either. But does it change my life one iota, or give me any credibility? No.

Kate is NOT related to the Kennedy's :eightball:  It was an April fools! :*butt*:
At first I thought Vanity fair would be serious, but in the article they wrote all this crap about Kate being a baseball fan and even having a “JESUS HATES THE YANKEES” tattoo on her lower back.  :rolleyes: The Yankees = New York baseball team  :BFF: 
But I had the pictures of the J.F.K. murder in my head when I wrote my last post. England should not take that risk. A lot of bad tihings happened since Charles and DIana wed. Afganistan, war in Iraq, etc. They have too many enemies to bait them at this day.

Oh I'm sorry for the "Kennedy link" : I should have told you I was referring to the April fool ! All my apologies to everyone !  :shy: I was just relating this "Kennedy joke" to the possibility of WK's "assassination" (my macabre sense of humor again !). Listen : I AM NOT CALLING FOR HER DEATH, it would make her a martyr... but I confess it would be sooooo convenient : if her "martyrdom" could spare the BRF and William a miserable life and save the monarchy, that's not such a high price to pay... OK I stop now, I'm going too far.

kahena, may I ask, do you ever a see the possibility of a positive (for the monarchy) ending? this is just all so awful

I am optimistic by nature so I will hope to the last second that something happens and saves us from that nightmare. But I'm also pragmatic : we live in Nietzschean times of inversion of values, the negative values of greed and wrong ambitions personified by WK and her dreadful family are at the top of the value scale, and unfortunately the good values of love, sharing and caring are at the bottom. I have no illusions : the devil has made it in this affair, and we're in to suffer WK's bloody grin for a moment... :ick:  How long ? That's the question...   :runforhills:

 :thumbsup: I get where you are coming from, Kahena.

I like to keep a realistic handle on things myself, but there just seems to be a very negative vibe in the air. I can't quite pinpoint what it is, perhaps the lack of "togetherness" in any form?  :think:

I'm surprised by her coy display, whether it was by accident or design.  :June:

It's like this wedding has triggered a tremendous amount of negative floodgates. HM seems ot be feeling the pinch too, her knee condition and she can no longer ride?

The a-holes in this world that would attack innocent people deserve to hung and quartered IMO.  :sly:

What many people who are happy about this wedding don't realise is there is probably and enormous amount of police, MI 5 & 6 time and man power going into ensuring that terrorists don't attack during the royal wedding. They'd be pulling in suspects left right and centre and holding them while they investigate every bit of intelligence chatter from every nutcase group of fanatics and even those who are moderate but have current political issues boiling such as the organisations who protested in London recently. It will be interesting to see reports 6 months down the track from people who feel they were illegally detained. Lawsuits galore IMO. And the authroties would be doing so without the medias knowledge and at huge cost to the taxpayer. The amount quoted for security for the royal wedding would only be the security that we'll all see on the day. It doesn't factor in the cost of then huge anti-terrorism sweeps currently underway or the embargoes on leave placed on police and security forces for the time surrounding and including the wedding. The overtime would be enormous alone. Every available police officer from every part of the UK would not be allowed to go on leave without good reason and will be bused into the Metropolitian area to cover this wedding. The rest of the UK will be left with a skeleton crew. Bugger the rest of the country if it all goes to pot elsewhere. You guys will just have to wait for a copper to investigate the *violent physical attack*, murders or serious assaults as kate and Wills come first. What also would be adding to the monetary burden of this ill timed wedding would be the latest terror attack in Ireland from the real IRA. The powers above would be quaking in their boots worried that they could be planning something. I also would like to know if this young police officer lost his life because the intelligence chatter in Nth Ireland was ignored because the authorities were too focussed on this wedding to care about elsewhere?

Wombat very good post  :thumbsup: about what horrid things that will go and the police can't respond to them because of this in the way wedding.Also I read the streets will be closed which is such a danger if an ambulance has to get through or people who have real emergencies can't receive any help.  :thumbsdown:

I bet a lot of innocent people will get pulled in and there will be a lot of lawsuits after this month over it. The problem with such excess, is that it will create a lot of holes for something to go so wrong.
