Al Qaeda vows terror attacks against Britain

Feb 1 2013, 7:50am CST | by

London, Feb 1 (IANS) The Al Qaeda has vowed a series of terror strikes against Britain over London's involvement in a French-led operation against Islamist rebels in Mali.

London, Feb 1 — The Al Qaeda has vowed a series of terror strikes against Britain over London's involvement in a French-led operation against Islamist rebels in Mali.

The Sun said it was the first direct threat of revenge against Britain since Prime Minister David Cameron sanctioned military help for France.

Cameron also signed a "security partnership" with Mali's neighbour Algeria following the hostage crisis masterminded by wanted terrorist Mokhtar Belmokhtar.

Britain is sending 40 soldiers to Mali to assist in training local troops to combat the Al Qaeda.

The vow for vengeance was seen in an extremist website used by the Al Qaeda.

A man, identified as "Lover of Islam", said: "The attacks will be earth-shattering, shocking and terrifying."

The Sun earlier said Cameron would ask Algeria to let secret service MI6 hunt down Belmokhtar.

The one-eyed Belmokhtar masterminded the siege on a desert gas field in Algeria two weeks ago.

Algeria rejected Britain's offer of help during the hostage crisis, which saw the death of 38 foreigners including six Britons.

Spike TV's "Guys Choice 2013" - Arrivals
LONDON – An arms embargo against Russia would be little more than symbolic because Russia is largely self-sufficient in supplying its armed forces, a report argued Sunday. European Union countries exported $583 million of military equipment to Russia last year, less than 1 per cent of the nation’s $68 billion defence budget, according to a study by IHS Jane’s, which provides analysis on the defence industry and security issues. The bulk of that ...

France’s refusal to halt warship’s sale to Russia likened to its appeasement of Nazi Germany in the 1930s

ALBANIA-NETHERLANDS-BUSHATI-TIMMERMANS
BRUSSELS — The European Union threatened Russia on Tuesday with harsher sanctions over Ukraine, but failed to act on a call for an arms embargo as a rift with historic overtones emerged in which Britain and Lithuania accused France of pursuing a policy akin to its 1930s appeasement of Nazi Germany. The EU agreed to impose visa bans and asset freezes on more Russian officials, but drew back from imposing punitive measures for the first time on entire sectors of Russi ...
