UK to deploy 1,200 more troops for Olympic security

The British government will deploy an extra 1,200 troops for Olympics security, Sports Secretary Jeremy Hunt announced Tuesday, on top of 3,500 already called up specially this month after security contractor G4S said it would not be able to supply the number of guards it promised.

The Games begin on Friday.

    ...and those weren't just Rommels captured N. African nazi troops scattered about Texas in camps built to house them after WWII. Among them were literally THOUSANDS of captured nazi scientists, machinists, weapons designers, pharmacologists, doktors, geneticists, financier&Bankers, etc etc etc...all war criminals smuggled out of nazi Germany via US gov. "Operation Paperclip" and through the freaking Vatican of all places. I guess the Holy See missed that one. 🙂 he he.
    Anyway, just as Rommels n. Africa troops were the faces shown, behind those faces. Just as "terrorist" faces shown for GITMO see the REAL face of "terror". It's in your frealing own mirror and you STILL cannot see it.

    Righghght. Like women who hang around together DON'T begin cycling together. That I suggest the possibility of an electronic cycle is not reason for you to ASSUME I'm mysogynistic.
    Do you also think ill of Jesus who was dying? Recall, John said "' Jesus! Look! It is your mother Mary come to see you!'"
    Jesus looked-up from his sagging position and said "Who really IS my mother."
    Let me know what you ASSUME Jesus meant, and then I'll clue you in.

    I am wondering why GS4 couldn't fulfill their contractual agreement; it's not as if they didn't have notice well in advance...
