Plot to attack London foiled? Updated! Again!

It looks like the brave, brave jihadis were planning to do to London and other UK cities what they did to Mumbai:

Intelligence agencies have intercepted a terror plot to launch Mumbai-style attacks on Britain and other European countries, according to Sky News sources.

Sky’s foreign affairs editor Tim Marshall said militants based in Pakistan had been planning simultaneous strikes on London and major cities in France and Germany.

He said the plan was in the “advanced but not imminent stage” and the plotters had been tracked by spy agencies “for some time”.

Intelligence sources told Sky the planned attacks would have been similar to the commando-style raids carried out in Mumbai.

Then, Pakistan-based Islamist group Lashkar-e-Taiba killed 166 people in a series of gun and grenade attacks in the Indian city.

This is jihad fi sabil Allah, “war for the sake of Allah.” These guys want to get to their twisted version of Paradise over our corpses.

They’re still trying to kill us.

UPDATE: via Hot Air. Now we see the reason for the sudden rapid-fire round of drone strikes in Pakistan.

UPDATE II: Threat Matrix speculates about which jihadist groups might have been involved. Not surprisingly, Pakistani groups such as Lashkar-e-Taiba are in the mix. But also mentioned is AQIM, which is raking in the big bucks via kidnapping for ransom. What was it I wrote about victims financing their own destruction? Oh, yeah

    We really have to stop treating such wannabe mass murderers with kid gloves. Summary executions would deter more of these morons and show we mean business.

      I wonder. Being religious fanatics, they might just see it as another way to martyrdom.

  2. [...] could just be an exercise, but given the recent news out of Europe and the increased American drone-strikes in Pakistan, one has to wonder if this is connected. [...]
