    Not to mention their immigration policy. They are too easy-going and non-commital when it comes to ISIS and terrorism so of course terror attacks are going to increase.

      @erica_binz55 ok just no. First of all, the ONLY people to blame for this attack are the individuals who carried it out. Not Muslims, not immigration policy, and not foreign policy.

      Now that we got that out of the way, the UK pretty much does everything the US does when it comes to the Middle East. They so far have been in line with what Obama wanted and now what Trump wants. So by your statement I guess it's the US's fault too...

      @patrickconan Well I think we can at least extend the blame to Islamist extremism as well. Other than that, I agree that the UK's foreign policy, as muddled as it is, did not directly or even indirectly cause the Manchester attack

      @erica_binz55 Secret Affairs by Mark Curtis is an essential book to read before debating this.
      Radical Islam is a creation of British, American, French, German and Israeli intelligence services.
      Who started the Muslim brotherhood? The Brits!
      Who founded armed trained and funded Hamas? The US and Israel.
      Who created the Taliban? Well we all know the answer to that but most people don't know at least 50% of their funding still comes from the US government.
      ISIS? Just look at the pictures of John McCain shaking the cannibal commanders hand and giving them all their weapons.
      Even Iran, although I would no longer consider them extremist, at least the common people aren't. Whereas the contra scandal during the Iran Iraq war is well documented, the very close ties between Iran, the US and Israel even now are not. Yeah they might have a war but the leaders of the countries are all on bed with each other and any war will have been agreed to.

        It's got nothing to do with foreign policy. This is happening all over the western world. The problem is 2 fold. 1. Religion in general is divisive, indoctrinating and emotive. All religions and factions within require indoctrination to gain followers. They then encourage divisive behaviour. Once you have been duped into such way of thinking you become incredibly emotional about that. Islamic terrorists just consider killing innocent people to be part of their religion, much the same as Jews don't eat pork or Catholics take communion.
        2. Politicians are more interested in their careers and staying in power than doing what is necessary, whoever that might offend.

        You can't do away with religion so that's out which means we have to accept that we are at war and there is no place for political correctness in this scenario.

          It was a direct result of their lax immigration laws.
