The police cannot be expected to deal with the level of rioting on the streets of London. They are outnumbered, and too weakened by decades of politically correct indoctrination to be deal with urban warfare.
The rioting, by criminals of the lowest order and so-called anarchists, is a form of co-ordinated urban terrorism. It has no purpose except to terrorise the population, impose criminal dominance, and facilitate theft. The rioters have no regards whatsoever for property or human life. It is a miracle no one has been burnt alive.
The Army should be immediately be brought back from the pointless and debilitating wars in Iraq and Afghanistan (that have served no purpose other than to make Tony Blair a multi-millionaire) and set to restoring order on the streets of London by dealing with the rioters in a way they can understand, using all necessary force.
Instead of doomed efforts to combat terrorism abroad the armed forces should be brought home to suppress terrorism in our own capital city and restore order and some self-respect to London.
