Roads closed as device examined

#1
A number of roads have been closed in County Armagh due to a security alert.
Army bomb experts are examining a suspicious object at Monbrief Road East in Craigavon.

The object was discovered on Tuesday during a planned search, a police spokesman said.

New Line in Craigavon is closed from the Tandragee Road junction to Glenavon Lane, as is the Monbrief Road East from Roundabout B to Drumgask Road.

There are no further details at present.
is this proof that the army is still needed in NI? will the lack of troops in NI leave a gap for the IRA to take control by force? and if they did could we push them back?

The Irish Republicans are our friends.
Gerry and Martin and all their asociates are nice guys.
Tony said so, so it must be true. It's part of his legacy, you know .......

Funny isn't it....

They made me redundant to appease the Republicans. We were made exempt from the Army Reserve liability, so if they think I'm going back to all that again they can stick it. I won't be available and I'm sure i speak for the rest of the 3000 R Irish (HS).

What goes around comes around.

If it does, I wonder how much funding & support will be forthcoming from Boston et al this time?

Hopefully none... the tools put in place to track funding of tangos since 9/11 should prove adequate to identify and neutralize those who would support the IRA, UDL, or any other acronyms that might pop up.

Some folks can't let go of their hate...
