  • "Destroy the IRA!"

    In 1991 the IRA mortared 10 Downing Street
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downing_St ... tar_attack



    In 1992 they blew up the Baltic Exchange doing 1 billion pounds of damage



    WI John Major had been killed and had been replaced by a tough PM, or had gone tough himself, and instead of cowing to the IRA and entering in to political negotiations, realises that it's 'them or us', and gives the order to destroy the IRA in N.Ireland, in the UK, and even authorising operations inside Eire itself, with backing from Bush/Clinton, sending in MI5, CI5 etc, and even the UDA, UDR, UVF, UVV etc as in "Hidden Agenda" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jSkajzXO44o
    even if it meant war, Jerry Adams jailed, Sinn Fein made illegal, jailing without trial for thousands of innocents, reprisals, destabilising the EEC, UK expulsion from the EEC etc?

    After 3 years of mayhem, and totally deaths of 20,000, the IRA, the Provos, the "New IRA", the "Real IRA" etc have been
    eradicated.

    A new generation of begrudged Irishmen is raised, waiting to take their revenge on the Brits in the 2010s.

    Why would this be? The British knew who everyone was, they just had to catch them in the act. It wasn't a war, they were there in support of the police. They had to build criminal cases, find evidence, etc. If they just wanted to round up the bad apples, it wouldn't have been any problem finding them.

      Nope ,no problem at all,we knew all of them and seen them out and about on a daily basis,"Mornin Mr Murphy,how's yer ma?" that kind of thing.
      The whole thing would have taken a few hours.
      It would have ended in disaster though.
      Having said that,9/11 changed a lot of peoples perception of what a terrorist organisation actually entails.
      Maybe if we had shut them down and there was a backlash,we could have shut them down permanently following the Towers.
