Following the latest terrorism atrocity in Manchester, a counter terrorism 'expert', Dr. Clark Jones is unconvinced that the perpetrators were driven by Islam, but waffled on about 'kids' and 'anti-social' behaviour.

If this bloke is an 'expert' on anti-terrorism he should be sacked from his taxpayer-funded sinecure at ANU. There could be no one supposed to be advising authorities on counter terrorism more useless than this person.

Expert: 'X' for the unknown quantity and 'spert' for a drip under pressure.

For anyone wondering what ttbn is actually talking about: http://www.4bc.com.au/podcast/manchester-terror-attack

ttbn,

Itís no wonder you never provide links to these articles you tell us about. People might find out just how much youíre exaggerating.

All Dr Jones said was that he wouldnít want to get too bogged down in the religious side of the attack (wise words, given that there are always other factors as well), and that, while such attacks are framed in religion, there are a lot of underlying issues which drive these kids to do what they do (also true).

The closest Dr Jones came to expressing scepticism over the role of Islam was to say that he didnít think the number of mosques in the area was the issue, and that itís probably more to do with larger political issues across Europe at the moment.

Vague stuff, sure, but he made it clear that he was reluctant to comment in too much detail until the police had more information. Which is also wise given how little homegrown terrorists seem to know about Islamic doctrine in most cases, and how non-existent their mosque attendance often is.

You should try a bit of research into radicalisation, ttbn. You might actually learn something. Here, I'll get you started:

AJ Philips,

Blow it out your bum! Do you really believe that what you say matters? All you do is rubbish other people. You are the most miserable piece of ordure that I have ever come across. I usually ignore your vicious crap. You are the type of thug that bullies people on Facebook and Twitter, which is where you belong. You can carry on hissing, sneering and whining as long as you like. It will not make a scrap of difference to what I think or say; and, with any luck, you'll choke on your own bile. You are to be pitied, you poor silly thing.

Dear AJ Phillips,

I'm not surprised.

Thank you.
