‘UK terror attacks blowback from interventions in ME’

Araweelo News Network

London(ANN)-Londoners witnessed a night of panic and horror on Saturday after a deadly terror incident ripped through the heart of the city, and left multiple casualties. Press TV has talked to investigative journalist Tony Gosling about the attack.

The London-based journalist pinned the blame on the United Kingdom’s foreign intelligence agency, MI6, arguing that such acts of terror are the blowback from the agency’s supportive policies towards terrorist groups in the Middle East.

The problem, he said, is that many of these terrorists have been working very closely with the foreign intelligence service, MI6. “They are actually fostering them in places like Libya and helping ship them across to places like Syria to actually fight for British foreign policy which is effectively regime change in Syria [and] regime change in Libya,” Gosling said.

He also criticized the domestic counter-intelligence and security agency, MI5, for failing to pursue the suspects of previous terror assaults in Britain, including the bombing which took place in Manchester Arena two weeks ago.

“It seems that MI5 has completely lost the plot,” Gosling noted. “They are allowing these attacks to take place. They are not following some of the prime suspects which we have seen so far in many of the attacks in Britain.”

The analyst concluded that the UK’s foreign policy is encouraging terrorists to stage attacks inside the country, adding that if the officials really don’t want to see such attacks again, they must immediately put an end to their disastrous regime change policy.

“We need actually to get some proper accountability at places like MI5 and MI6 and of course in our foreign policy we don’t need regime change anymore. That might help stop that kind of blowback attacks we are seeing in Britain over the last few weeks.”

Saturday terror attacks were the third to strike Britain this year after a car drove into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge in March, killing four people, and the May bomb attack in Manchester which claimed 22 lives.

This comes as Britain is preparing for a snap election that has major implications for the country’s future. Many believe that the timing of the attacks is aimed at affecting the result of the election.
