Newry Firebombers: Scum

So-called dissident 'republicans' have struck again, burning down a number of commercial premises in Newry. The Newry area has been ignored by the British administration for years, and the local economy is heavily dependent on such retail outlets- many, many people in the area rely on these shops providing them with employment.

Yet, the twisted logic of these scumbags has led them to the conclusion that a united Ireland will best be achieved by bombing these people onto the dole. How exactly does this work? A united Ireland needs to be successful, egalitarian and forward-looking. Actions such as this simply retard progress towards that goal.

While local activists are running projects such as the 'SDLP: A Greater Newry' campaign to secure jobs and investment for the area, these idiots are doing everything in their power to hurt the people of Newry and Mourne.

We must all unite to face down the thread these filthmongers pose.

Fine words - but the reality is that in the future the SDLP will be wooing them in the same way as you woo SF/DAAD, insisting that they shouldn't be excluded, they must be brought into the political process etc etc.

MR
I am afraid you called in wrong on that kicking in Lurgan. It was a couple of RIRA lads from Kilwilke that gave Mr Wallace a kicking. You can blame SF all you want but your barking up the wrong tree on this one.

Parnell said...

I totally agreed with the post and with the fiest two comments. Although I will be launching Ireland – The Voice Of The Nation, on Monday 4th September 2006. I have been doing some test posts like this one on the Newry attacks. http://irelandsfew.blogspot.com/2006/08/pathetic-return-of-oxymorons.html

Yeah, right Sammy, try and change the subject ;)

Madradin Ruad said...

N=ice seeing you again Mr P :)

Parnell said...

M.R. And you too. Hope your ready for action. You were and probably are still are one of my best adversiraties. Tuch shay.

MR-

The difference is that the provos have caught themselves on and now realise the futility of blowing up one's own town.

SAmmy said...

Me change the subject-on posts regarding CRJ and Newry firebombs you manage to mention that the SDLP legitimise SF what has this to do with the posts under discussion.
Parnell if he is the best your up against it says it all about the quality of blogging these days.

I wouldn't call the people who carried this out (this includes the mauufacturers, the planters, and the ones who give the orders) SCUM. Just lets say that their parentage is in question.

Did you mean that comment el mat - it comes across as that it's OK to blow up non-nationalist towns but not nationalist ones ?

Madradin Ruad said...

"Sammy " - does plausible deniability mean anything to you ?

Look back - when SF/DAAD have been caught in the past it's been "acting without leadership authority" or "locally authorised".

Tell you what - when those in SF who know where the Tohill abductors are pass on the info, or when they do something about the killers of Robert McCartney, when they close down the Fuel scams etc, then I'll begin to accept that the RM is moving towards being fit to participate in some form of administration of Justice.

How the SDLP cosset the SF butchers sends a bad message to the supposed "dissidents".

I don't believe this is the w ork of dissents. It is the work of provo's. Wheather it is sanctioned by leadership or not.

El Matador said...

MR-

Of course I recognise that it is wrong to blow up any town. I merely point to the fact that it is particularly hare-brained to blow up the town in which you live. These people claim to be engaged in a 'war'- strange kind of war which results in the people whom one purports to be fighting on behalf of, being the targets.

BTW, could anon posters please at least invent a screen name, so other posters can differentiate between them when responding to their posts? Thanks.

There seems to be suspicion about this. There have been rumours about South Armagh provos being disenchanted with the provisional leadership. Indeed, I've heard reports of RIRA, CIRA, and disillusioned provos cooperating. Even if theis is 'mainstream' dissidents, rather than unhappy provos, one mustn't lose sight of the fact that all were ultimately the offspring of the PIRA, simply going their separate ways in 1986 and 1997. The provos created the monster during the Troubles, and while the bulk of them have taken up peaceful activities, they have not been able to control the beast completely, hence these attacks and others such as Omagh under the guise of the respective offshoots.

You may have a point- it is depressing seeing young children indoctrinated in sectarian hatred on both sides. Of course, those who carried out these attacks may just have been idiots, beyond the control of perhaps decent parents. There have been many families split throughout the years over ideologies and opinions on violence.

El Matador said...

Sammy-

You'll have to excuse MR- it's his pet hobby to criticise the SDLP at every turn for 'legitimising' SF ;)

Not really - in their sick world it's dangerous for places like Newry to become Prosperous in the UK. It was after all Provo Policy to blow the guts out of NI and especially to stop employment from reaching the RC population. Remember how they stopped Grundig from investing in Newry ?

Anonymous said...

El-mat How on earth can anyone 'legitimising' Sinn Fein or what they stand for. TRepublicans thought they were clever have wreck the ecommony of Northern Ireland. One wonders what their mentality is or are they short of brain cells. By this wanton destruction they yet again prove they are s hort of brain cells and parents as well.

El Matador said...

MR-

I remeber all too well how the provos opposed anything which would have brought any modicum of prosperity, e.g. murdering the bosses of companies and blowing up hotels and shops. Which raises the question as to a) why did they do it and when did they change their policy on destroying business, and b) how can they criticise those who do it now when they did it 10 years ago, e.g. in Manchester.

Madradin Ruad said...

El Mat - things changed when people like Gerry Adams got his foot on the property ladder. Money Talks - even to leaders of a party that claims to want nationalisation of Land, building industry, banking, insurance etc.

Not that anybody would ever dream of suggesting that Gerry had any say in how the IRA operated ...

But it's interesting that so many Shinners ended up in big business.
Or property developing on Short Strand - almost ;)

You cannot put a rope aropund the neck of an idea - but you can buy the bugger doing the thinking ;)

plurabella said...

Could someone tell me what is actually "Real" about the Rira? And is that "Real" as in "reality" or Real Madrid?

Madradin Ruad said...

Plurabella - they are the same as SF, only more honest .

El Matador said...

Plurabella-

Apparently they mounted an illegal checkpoint up in Jonesborough, and told drivers: "We're the IRA- the real IRA," so as to distinguish themselves from the provos. They name stuck.

Of course, the only true Oglaigh na hEireann is the Irish Defence Forces- any others purporting to be thus are illegal, treacherous, imposters. But that's a separate issue.
