Counter Terrorist Raids in Melbourne

The clock is ticking!

More terror raids in Melbourne Local Victorian Police and the Australian Federal Police conducted a reportedly Counter Terrorist raid on a house located in a Northern Suburb of Melbourne.

According to the news report just released the Bomb squad has detonated two explosive devices found in the house. Two men have been reported removed from the house in handcuffs and taken away.

All this on a day when the local Victorian Police have been notified by email to follow a certain protocol to protect themselves from the threats of the Radical ISIS members who have threatened them with violence and death.

It is a 'sad' world that we live in at the moment!

Yes. I live in the U.S. The ISIS bastards have threatened to destroy the White House. I'm sure it's bluster, but they inspire lost souls to commit murder and mayhem against innocent people along the way.

I'm not sure about it being 'just' Bluster? Precautions should be made and fast!
I do know that these people are very tech savvy and seem to be able to recruit young people who have been brainwashed into making the ultimate sacrifice!

OMG I have relatives in Melbourne, but thankfully they live right out in the countryside, and I doubt they go into the city very often. I can´t see that anyone will be able to stop these ISIS lunatics until their fellow Muslims who aren´t lunatics start turning them in.

Precautions have been taken. But how do you prevent every disenfranchised young person from heeding the siren song of doing something that appears meaningful? As far as bluster: anyone can say they'll do anything to appear intimidating. And these people have already proven they'll stop at nothing—wholesale slaughter of innocents reminiscent of the likes of Pol Pot or the genocide in Rwanda—because god is on their side.

I agree with you :)
For me the thing that is sending a 'chill' up my spine is the fact that they don't seem to have a 'stated goal' they seem to be in it just for the thrill of 'the kill' ?
Do you think that they would lay down their arms if the world said 'We will all convert to Islam' I for one don't think so ?

We are also fortunate that we live out in Regional Victoria however we do have family in Melbourne so it is a big concern for us !
Please don't get the wrong idea ! In Victoria we have many Muslims who abhor what is going on with ISIS , it only seems to be the Radicalized young men and women who are going to the extremes!
In this case it was reported on the News that the offender is a 17year old teenager who is the son of a well respected Doctor !

No, because it wouldn't be the "right" Islam, whatever that is. They'd have to instill their own leaders in power who wouldn't have a clue how to run countries and then when problems developed, the only thing they could do would be to kill—execute—the recalcitrant ones. Occasionally they're turn on each other of course. There really is no pleasing or even appeasing these guys.

I didn´t get the wrong idea as I know exactly what you are saying and it´s brainwashed and misguided radicals that are doing all this bad stuff, but the truth remains that someone inside these Muslim communities must suspect something amiss, but only react with cries of " This is not what our religion is about" after some terrible event, instead of being proactive and reporting their fears to the authorities before the atrocities are carried out.

From all reports and reading between the lines this latest incident was cut short due to a 'tip-off'!
So this may be the result of a 'proactive' muslim doing exactly as you say and reporting to the authorities!

Good, it needs to be done far more often.

Oh, god, yes. All the time in the United States. We are the biggest target of all, I guess.

Yes,here in India.always there is the threat of ISIS terrorists.But all Muslims are not on their side.There are reasonable ones who are against the terrorism.

One of the scary things about the IS is that we don't really know who the enemy is ! In Australia we are now just getting the proper 'intel' to counter act the evil !

agvulpes wrote on May 29, 2015, 9:36 AM

I understand what you are saying and that is the 'problem' we can't identify the 'enemy' until we obtain the right intelligence :)

Here in the United States, we do worry about ISIS threats, but I try not to let it interfere with my daily life.

I agree the worst thing we can do is to let them think that we are 'scared' of them ! Our Government here in Australia seems to have realized just how dangerous this is and are taking steps to overcome the problem !

that is crazy, why are there terrorist in your country? Hope for peace

agvulpes wrote on June 10, 2015, 6:54 AM

Unfortunately in Australia the youth of today has the highest unemployment rate ! Hence there is a lot of unrest and it is just what the IS recruiters are looking for! With promises of Adventure and Anarchy against the government I guess it is very appealing to some of them ?

It is very sad. Here in the states over the 4th it is said that there was a terror plot foiled before the celebrations. ISIS has sent out lists of active duty military and where they live, putting targets on their backs.

agvulpes wrote on July 15, 2015, 6:46 AM

Disgusting isn't it ? why can't they just live and let live? Our civilian police have now been ordered to come to work dressed in 'civvies' and must now only work in pairs !
