Has anyone else been following the situation in Northern Ireland? Two British soldiers and a policeman have been executed in the last week by IRA 'splinter groups'. So given the bleak outlook for the United Kingdom economy and a rise of unemployment in the region, will this lead to a return of the horrific 'troubles' in which thousands were killed the 1970s-1990s?
Another one of Tony Blair's 'achievements' is seemingly about the unravel.
From The Age:
A SECOND deadly attack on security forces in 48 hours has prompted warnings that Northern Ireland is on the verge of a return to violence.
The killing of a policeman dashed hopes that the weekend deaths of two British soldiers was a one-off, and stoked fears that Northern Ireland could be plunged back into the sectarian bloodshed which wracked the province for 30 years.
