Jimmy C BS: IRA offers to shoot suspects (89* d) RE: BS: IRA offers to shoot suspects 11 Mar 05

Meself Alone,

You are right, the loyalists also deserve the scorn of all decent people, however are they getting it ?. Why are their crimes not front page as well ? why is the McCartney murder warrant more publicity than the others ?. The people in the north of Ireland have known nothing but murder for a complete generation, it is obvious that anyone involved in a crime, especially murder would want to destroy evidence, what would you have them do?, wait around for the non-partisan police force, hopefully to get a fair trial.
I just think that you cannot blame an entire organization for the actions of a few. And if anyone out there thinks the I.R.A. is going to disband your are either wishful thinkers and very very naive. The surest way to bring back the bad days of the troubles is to make the nationalist community appear to be undefended. The threat the I.R.A. poses is the only thing keeping the loyalists in check. Why would they disband with the police force, british army and loyalists squads all armed , patrolling and living within minutes of some nationalists areas. Do you think they are stupid.?
