Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

Perhaps the military should carry phones with cameras that can transmit the  photo as soon as it is taken, might not prevent injury to the victim but the perpetrator could quickly be identified and caught.

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

Any smartphone with something like Dropbox can take pictures & videos that are uploaded to cloud storage as soon as they're taken, the only issue is, taking a picture in the middle of being attacked is usually the last thing on someone's mind...

Though I'm sure with the use of something like a GoPro with some adaptation, it could be used to send an SOS with images or video, or both...

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

I should think the advice will be not to go out alone !

Even in civvy,s you can spot  armed forces personal

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

Fair point, perhaps all military personel should be given the option of carrying a canister of CS gas when off duty, as I see it if they are at risk then they should have as much right as the police have to defend themselves.

I guess a military court would come down on them fairly heavily if used inappropriately.

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

I hate to say this but it started a long time ago or have you forgotten 7/7 or Lee Rigby?

I'm ex-forces and used to be proud to go around in my uniform.

@rachann

I doubt few people would forget that.

Be interested to know what you think military people should do to protect themselves from future incidents ?

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

That is a difficult one.

The key to beating them will be intelligence. If you see anything suspicious, report it. 

Stay sharp, be aware of your surroundings and go around in groups if possible,

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

Perhaps the military should stop bombing the [-Censored-] out of the middle east, just saying.

Re: Possible Terrorist attempt

You may well be right, but consider why France gets attacked the way it does. Their involvement in the Middle East, north Africa and Algeria in particular has not been something to be proud of - not that the British have behaved much better elsewhere. I'm a million miles from hugging the nearest tree but we'd do well to consider just why these guys have such a nasty bee in their bonnets disgusting and abhorrent as there actions are.
