Run from that truck moving at 40 mph or more! Run from those bullets flying directly at you. Run from those nail bombs that go off in an instant. Or… you know… die.
British tourists are being urged to watch a new safety video on how to survive a terrorist attack ahead of their summer breaks. The four-minute clip issued by counterterrorism police depicts a firearms attack unfolding at a hotel.
And the message is simple – Run, Hide, Tell!
Detective Chief Superintendent Scott Wilson, national coordinator for the Protect and Prepare strategy, told the Press Association 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.
“As we saw in Tunisia in 2015, any westerner is likely to be a target anywhere in the world,” he added.
“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 encourages people to first run to a place of safety if possible, leaving belongings behind and bringing others with them.
If there is no place of safety, they should hide by barricading themselves in and turn their phones to silent.
As soon as it is safe, they should alert authorities by using the local emergency number, which is 112 in EU countries.
This is yet another attempt of counter-terrorism efforts to make it look as though the people can still maintain control of their situation under threat of terror all while trying to normalize the situation. There’s no doubt that European tourism has been hit really hard by recent terror attacks and the constant flood of third world migrants that not only scowl at women without hijabs, but also take every opportunity to grope them.
Little do these counter-terrorism efforts know that their little safety video does nothing but make them look even weak to the invaders they lovingly allowed into their country.
So run from those trucks and bullets. Let’s see what moves faster. I think my money is safe betting the terrorist is gonna win.
If you’re in the USA, start packing. There’s no excuse anymore. And even then, nothing is going to stop a nail bomber except not allowing him into your country.
