GUEST,PeteBoom (at work) Good news in NI (46) RE: Good news in NI 24 Oct 01

3+ tonnes of semtex, 650+ AK's, pretty significant numbers, eh? Sounds like agreement has been reached and they are throwing the dice. C-IRA and R-IRA and the rest are no doubt going to scream (already are) about how they are betraying the cause. I don't know how many more defections there will be, most of the splitters have left from what I have heard and seen. What the (IRA) are doing is scoring on the UUP's trump from last week.

All along the anti-agreement groups have been saying that the IRA will never give up their arms (obviously statements made by people who never read the text of the GFA, but that's another discussion). The political pundits must be absolutely scrambling to come up with reasons to be opposed to SF being in the Assembly and to continue opposition. All along the battle cry has been "Decommission!" I wonder what it will be now.
