One Down, One To Go

It took 30 years, but one group of terrorists has realized that terrorism doesn’t work.

The IRA has formally ordered an end to its armed campaign and says it will pursue exclusively peaceful means.
In a long-awaited statement, the republican organisation said it would follow a democratic path ending more than 30 years of violence.

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams said the move was a “courageous and confident initiative” and that the moment must be seized.

Prime Minister Tony Blair said it was a “step of unparalleled magnitude”.

“It is what we have striven for and worked for throughout the eight years since the Good Friday Agreement,” he said.

Are you listening, Palestinians?  Are you listening, al-Qaeda?  You’ll be able to score the occasional victory against us, but you’re going to lose the war.  Unfortunately, it might take 30 years for you to realize it.

This happened not a moment too soon, either.  The UK has a whole new slew of terrorist vermin to deal with.
