IRA Stand down


28 July 2005

The IRA has said it will stand down all units from 4pm today. A statement said it would put an end to 'armed struggle' and devote efforts towards peaceful solutions.

It instructed all members to "assist the development of purely political and democratic programmes through exclusively peaceful means". The statement also invites a representative from the Protestant and Catholic churches to witness the disarmament.


Interesting development that runs contrary to representatives of the "Religion Of Peace" and their plans for world peace.

It is definitely great news but still....I thought they'd decided to do this several years ago. Did I dream that?
