IRA to lay down their weapons...

As an Irish-Catholic I found this story interesting,
"The Irish Republican Army has given up its armed struggle for a united Ireland, agreeing to turn solely to political methods, an American businessman said yesterday after being briefed on a statement expected from the guerrilla group later this week."


It is still just a first step but it is promising.

Having lived through the early '90's IRA bombing campaign in London, I am very doubtful of their sincerity. As an American of Irish and Scots ancestry I certainly hope they are able to find peace in Northern Ireland, but the marxist underpinnings and extortion and drug profits behind the IRA I doubt they will easily put down their guns.
