    No. They just moved into (dis)organised crime.

  3. No there are still the Dissident Republicans CIRA/RIRA and the like, they havnt gone anywhere.
     
  4. They have been into "organised crime" for years. I wonder if the Serious and Organised Crime Agency (SOCA) will be on their trail or will that be too political? AND No the IRA Army Council have not disbanded, they still meet on a regular basis at Stormont to plot their campaign against the Brits.

  5. Bliar says so, Hain says so, and therefore it MUST be true.
     
  6. The IRA will only have been disbanded when we bury a 9mm in to the back of the skull of the last body and lime them and bury them in an unmarked pawpers grave.... or launch them in to the sea.

    Same goes for ALL other terrorist organisations.
     
  7. SOCA couldn't find dandruff.
     
  8. The IRA have not disbanded nor disarmed and never will.
     
  9. 'They've not gone away you know'
     
  10. They've handed in the knackered, jarked or black-listed weapons, sold the crap to gangsters and kept the good stuff, no doubt biding their time and storing cash from organised crime. In fact, the government is probably paying them to do so, so that they can pretend that the problem no longer exists.

    The clue is that Bobby Sands murals, tricolours, ONWARD TO VICTORY slogans and murals of ****-ugly men in balaclavas are still being painted. Just because no houses are being built nearby doesn't mean the construction company has disappeared...
     
  11. If it's any consolation my sound recordist caught G.Adams esq. a fair old crack round the ear with his boom pole once.It was outside the House of Commons just before Adams was due to press the flesh with the Paisley where the 'accident' occurred.

  12. but who bleives them???
     
  13. The "war" is over and the ones who haven't "resettled" are now ordinary criminals. The British public has been lionising gangsters for decades - as long as they aren't killing squaddies or ordinary people then why should anyone be worried? Those murderous bastardos have lots of blood on their hands but surely that puts them on a par with some of our political allies across the globe. Does anyone seriously think the IRA would, or could, regroup and launch a military campaign? Does anyone think think the public in NI have any appetite for another deadly sectarian war? Absolutely no chance.

  14. Guys it´s OK! Everything is cool.

    Martin McGuiness, well known peace envoy, has said so.

    "The IRA have clearly gone off the stage and have done so since 2005," said Mr McGuinness.

    And he should know
