Vacationers are being told to watch a new government released video on how to survive a terrorist. The government has commissioned this nice little four-minute instructional clip in view of the recent spike in terror related incidents in the last few months. Just how useful the information contained in the video remains to be seen.
The clip was produced by counter-terrorism police and adapts the current government policy of “run, hide, tell” to a visual format, it also depicts how it can be put into use as a terrorist attack unfolds on a hotel. A government spokesperson reminded reporters that it was slightly over two years ago, that 38 people were murdered in a terrorist attack on a resort hotel in Sousse, Tunisia.
It was a beautiful June day, when Muslim terrorist Seifeddine Rezgui walked off the beach and through the Imperial Marhaba hotel, systematically murdering innocent vacationers. Officials have stressed there is no specific intelligence of any pending terror attacks, but it is certain in any attack, American and Europeans will be the primary targets.
Detective Chief Superintendent Scott Wilson, national coordinator for the Protect and Prepare strategy, addressing the Press Association reminded the group that the chances of being caught up in a terrorist incident are “still low” but “sadly we have seen atrocities that take place in the UK and abroad. It is important that everyone stays alert and knows what to do if the worst was to happen. We want people to think of this in the same way they do the safety films airlines show before take-off. They don’t expect anything bad to happen but it is a sensible safety precaution to show people what to do.”
The video tells people to “drop everything” and to “run” to a place of safety, if possible and to assist others in escaping. It explains that if there is no safe place to run to, they should attempt to hide and barricading themselves in a room. In addition, they should turn their phones to silent operations. Finally, it reminds them that once they are safe they should alert authorities by using the local emergency number, which is 112 in EU countries and 911 in the United States.
This video was made in an effort not to save lives, but to give people the impression that they can survive a terrorist attack. It also is an effort by the government to give their citizens a false sense of security in a country that denies them the basic rights of self-defense.
The fact is, only through force of arms, or luck will survive a terrorist attack. My advice, grab a weapon, any weapon and attack with all you have in you and don’t stop until your target is dead. Then grab their weapon and keep killing them until they are all dead. Better to die a warrior than on your knees as sheep with a slit throat.
