Some encouraging news out of the UK if you're willing to believe it:
With that said... this is something they were supposed to have done by mid 2000 according to the Good Friday Accord. Better late than never I suppose.
What I find most interesting about this article on MSNBC is what is conspicuously absent. What is missing is any mention of the recent London subway bombings. We are apparently lead to believe that the members of the IRA just suddenly decided to put down their weapons? Just like that?
Here is what I think happened. The members of the IRA decided that their terrorist attacks weren't going to garner any sympathy for their cause in light of the new war that Islam has apparently declared on Britain now. They know that the police are searching throughout all the UK even more diligently then before, making members of the IRA even more vulnerable thanks to the recent attacks. I think that the IRA is just as much of a terrorist organization as Al Qaida is. I just think that maybe the IRA is starting to come to their senses... maybe even having some patriotic thoughts. Strange isn't it?
On a related note, I want to see a lot more of this going on:
