And this time, it was in Manchester (the third largest city in Britain, and not super-far from my hometown if you take the motorway.) It occurred last night after an Ariana Grande concert (yes, this one is of concern to Americans too), and so far, nearly 60 people have been injured and 22 are dead. Tragically, the death toll includes children.

Fairly predictably, ISIS have claimed responsibility. We all know ISIS are a bunch of crazy, destructive fuckers, but murdering kids?! How fucking low are they?! :wtf: Those kids just went to see Ariana Grande for a good time - they didn't expect to be killed by a suicide bomber who deliberately waited for them outside the Manchester Arena.

Disgustingly, the alt-right have taken this attack to bash Ariana Grande herself for being left-wing and supporting refugees. Erm, CHILDREN HAVE FUCKING DIED. Shut the fuck up and pay some goddamn respect! Personally, I've never been thrilled with the alt-right since I heard about it (it appears to be fascism under a more palatable name, imo), but bashing a singer who's been affected by terrorism is scummy as fuck and crosses a huge line. I'm not an Ariana fan, but no doubt she has been absolutely traumatised by the entire experience. Leave the poor girl alone.

Coincidentally (or perhaps not, since this is ISIS we're talking about), this has happened two weeks before the British snap general election. Campaigning has been suspended today until further notice. Also coincidentally, France had something similar happen during its presidential election too. It's pretty clear that ISIS (if they are truly behind this attack) are now resorting to striking during politically important periods of countries.

Us Brits are a resilient bunch. We've pulled through the attack in London a few weeks ago, we pulled through the murders of Jo Cox last year and Lee Rigby back in 2014, 7/7 in 2005, and various attacks by the IRA in the 20th century. We'll remain standing in the name of Manchester. We will refuse to submit to Islamic, or any other kind of extremism.

Mintaka-TK's Profile Picture
Mintaka-TK
United Kingdom

I'm a nerdy, 20-year old British university student who spends way too much time on the internet and likes to make stamps on dA. Other than that, I also like to bitch about politics; fangirl over video games, cartoons/anime, certain movies and music; and appreciate history.

"Criticizing a work of fiction due to it's romanticization of something so fucked doesn't mean that I'm an SJW."
If you're wondering what kind of fucked up stuff I'm talking, it's something like rape, etc.

As much as I miss Mako's Aku, I think Greg Baldwin's Aku is just as good, he have really improved over time.
