Going on the Offensive in GB

Blackfive tells us that Britain has "tactical teams" tracking AQ suspects, and that those teams have permission to kill if they believe the individuals will conduct a terror attack in short order.

First, glad to hear the Brits have the teams and the capability to do this (if the news reports are true).

Second, more glad to hear they are willing to use the teams to their fullest extent. They have clearly learned from the Israelis that nothing slows down terror attacks more than taking out leaders, or even mid-level members, of terror groups when they least expect it. Hamas attacks on Israel went from several per week to virtually none after the Israelis had taken out the 3rd consecutive Hamas "leader."
