London (CNN)British police are preparing for "enormous and spectacular" potential attacks on the UK as ISIS moves into its "next natural phase," Britain's senior counterterrorism officer said Monday.

Mark Rowley, assistant commissioner of London's Metropolitan Police, said that in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, ISIS had moved on from a "narrow focus on police and military as symbols of the state, to something much broader."

"You see a terrorist group that has big ambitions for enormous and spectacular attacks, not just the types that we've seen foiled to date," he said, citing as another example the downing of Metrojet Flight 9268.

ISIS claimed responsibility for the bombing of the jet over Sinai in October. All 224 people on board -- most of them Russian -- were killed.

So the article goes on to say that it's a general threat and not based on specific information. So they are just stating the obvious in order to do what? Scare people? Make them nervous and afraid to go out? What good is a warning to the general public if they don't even know where ISIS might strike next?  Of course, it's likely, I'm surprised it hasn't happened already. Get ready for it, UK people, more loss of freedom to keep you safe and secure once they do strike.

Well, is is insurgents are in the us, en masse. So I expect the 24 hr global terrorist attack to occur within 3 months. As soon as 3 weeks. Just a prediction based on some variables I see at play.
