My experience with terrorism concerns the IRA In and around London.

Despite operations carried o9ut by security forces and other units they couldn't stop all terror attacks. One comes to mind when I was driving a bus in Oxford Street in London in 1981. I pulled up at a bus stop opposite Wimpy burger bar. A copper came running over shouting at me to ''Get that F^&King bus out of it'' I shouted back that I had passengers getting off and getting on my bus. He ran around to the platform and pushed everyone back on, I have no idea how many I had standing, but I was well over the weight limit. The copper rang the bell and shouting for me to go. To cut a long story short the bomb finally went off, killing the bomb disposal civi. All in all there were three bombs planted that day in Oxford Street.

In London we had many bomb attacks, no matter how hard the security forces worked, the bombers always got through. Terrorism is impossible to stop completely, despite security some forces successes.

I had a few other scares with the IRA in and around London, then Muslims had to have a go 7/7, comes to mind

From the Eyes of a Tiger: The OSINT as a catalyst for terrorists Part II
https://projectofive.ca/2023/01/08/f...rists-part-ii/

Quote:
The collection, selection, and exploitation of OSINT are impossible to counter in the face of a well-structured and determined organization such as the LTTE since much of the vital intelligence is widely available in the vast sea of open sources.

From the Eyes of a Tiger: Schizo-affect resulting from being a former child soldier Part III
https://projectofive.ca/2023/01/18/f...dier-part-iii/

Quote:
Daily guilt, persistent nightmares resulting from my involvement in the civil war, and helplessness in faraway Canada, I slipped into depression and post-traumatic stress disorder, which gradually evolved into schizoaffective disorder in September 2001, soon after I arrived in Canada. Due to many years of prolonged treatment, the influence psychopharmacology has had on my life, and the effect that the drugs have had on my mind and behavior, I was ultimately changed into a different person. The antipsychotic drugs had a significant impact on my personality and outlook. As I internalized the treatment and conditioning, I came to misbelieve psychologically and biologically that I had a severe mental disorder and that I could no longer live without the antipsychotic drugs.

Moreover, due to the antipsychotic drugs and chemical imbalance in my body, I suffer from many different side effects, such as obesity, hyper-cholesterol, hyper-thyroid, extreme fatigue, short-term memory loss, loss of focus, and loss of concentration. One thing led to another, and I find myself today, after more than twenty years of ongoing treatment, I have been conditioned and dependent on these drugs. If I ever stop taking the prescribed medications, I will relapse.
