Dear A.S.S. Editor

The London attacks last night was a stark reminder that any acts of terrorism can happen anywhere, anytime. One does not need a cache of weapons to start a terror attack. Just a car as a weapon would do. Singapore, like the rest of the world, has rightly condemned the attack.

No matter who the perpetrator is, or whichever race or religion he claims to represent, this was clearly a cowardly act, and no race or religion will stand for such attacks. How can anyone defend an attack by mowing down defenseless pedestrians, and killing of a policeman who was just doing his job? This was no act of bravado, just senseless killing.

The area of the attack was a place where tourists congregate. Thankfully, no Singaporean was involved. It is a stark reminder to all that an attack can happen anywhere, so we need to stay vigilant and ready at all time.
