An attack on Manchester achieves what?

Around the world, senseless atrocities continue to take place and affect people going about their normal lives.

Conflicts in distant countries create extremists that disseminate ideologies at odds with our own way of life. They create lone wolves who’s skewed views align with those that label themselves as IS.

But the attack on Manchester bears no sense of achievement.

How can attacking children leaving a concert possibly resolve to fulfil the aims of a suicide bomber.

He gains nothing, irrespective of his mindset, sick, mentally ill or otherwise… I fail to see what he and others like him can say they achieved.

I wish all the families affected by this vile act warm condolences, deepest sympathies and my heart goes out to them.
