England pull out of World Badminton Championships following Muslim terrorist threat

High alert: A security guard stands guard ahead of the World Badminton Championships in Hyderabad

Brits kiss Muslim ass again. This time after threats of a terrorist attack on the World Badminton Championships of all things. The reason given for the despicable and cowardly withdrawal is for the "safety of the players". But that is the exact opposite of what should happen. The Brits should announce that they will play despite any threats. Rolling over to Muslim threats only begets more Muslim threats. Safety will never be achieved by succumbing to terrorism. Even with a thousand troops guarding the venue, "Great" Britain wussies out and shows it's yellow belly to the terrorists.

The only way to stop the threats is to confront them head on and then hunt down and kill the Islamists. Stone dead, no prisoners. Every time.

All I can say is that the Once Great Britain is slinking away from shadows like a cur with it's tail between it's legs. Despicable.

England has withdrawn from the World Badminton Championships in India after a Muslim terrorist threat was made against the competition.
The eight-strong squad, including Olympic silver medallist Nathan Robertson, has pulled out of the Hyderabad tournament, which starts on Monday, following reports of a threat by extremist group Lashkar-e-Taiba.
Badminton England chief executive Adrian Christy said: 'This was an incredibly tough decision and one we didn't take lightly.

'After the Olympic Games, this is the most prestigious championships in the world but we were not prepared to risk the safety of our players, coaches and staff in what we felt could have been a very volatile environment.'

But Mr Christy said the England camp was 'extremely grateful' for the speed in which the BWF (Badminton World Federation) and the organising committee reacted to the threat.
'We have carefully considered the comments made by the local police authorities and we know that they have the best interest of all competitors in mind.
