3 more arrests tied to UK soldier's killing

Three more people were arrested Saturday in connection with this week's grisly killing of British soldier Lee Rigby, police said.

The men were being held on suspicion of conspiracy to commit murder, the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

Police did not detail how they were allegedly tied to the killing nor did they release their identities, saying only that the men - ages 21, 24 and 28 - were arrested by detectives from the Counter Terrorism Command and taken to a south London police station.

    I am a lonesome lady. I have three sons. I get financial assistance so I really do not have to work. I do not have any friends but pretend I do here on line. I am pathetic.

    I too am pathetic like mary. Why? Because I won $10 million on the state lottery. Then I blew it all away in las vegas by gambling. Now I got to come up with $4 million to pay the IRS.
    God help me.

    The fight against terror is no longer on foreign soil, it's hitting home on the soil on which we live. Federal, national, state and local law enforcement need to come together immediately to put a cease to these attacks. They are becoming more frequent and closer to home.

    Good morning all including the troll on his daily romp.
    The 'war on terror' strategically & conceptually flawed waged solely on militarism has spawned more terrorism & violence.

    The need to target the handful of AlQaeda surgically , as a law enforcement operation right in the beginning was ignored. The doctrine of full scale invasion & occupation proved counter productive and self defeating.

    The general population who resented & feared AlQeda & Taliban in countries where we had military presence was alienated and made hostile by civilian killings and debasement of their religion both there and at home.

    No war on a foreign soil against minority 'insurgents' can be won ever without the general population on board. And this was ignored. Now entire regions and people harbor resentment against foreign occupation , death & destruction. How would it end, policy makers have no clue.

    Trillions of dollars spent and being spent on wars , militarism, homeland security, spying etc would be of no avail if fundamental flaws in this whole front against spread of reactionary terrorism, extremism & violence are not analyzed and removed.
