    Default Real IRA Targets 'Criminal' Bankers (but only if they're British!)

    Real IRA says it will target UK bankers | UK news | The Guardian

    The alleged socialists have noticed the banking crisis at last and are planning a bit of direct action to deal with the culprits who have wrecked the country. Thus they'll be going after bankers in London!

    The British Baader-Meinhof Brigade - what a sick joke!

    The Republicans have finally found something that there might be popular support for. Why are they excusing Southern bankers from this? I couldn't see too many people weeping for 'Fingers' etc.

    Because they don't have the courage of their new-found ultra-leftist convictions. So they've come up with this homicidal hotch-potch instead.

    BTW is your post inciting violence?

    I hasten to add that I don't support such actions at and have little or no sympathy for Irish Republicanism, as my posting history on the subject would show. I was merely commenting in the fact that while Republicans normally lack popular support, this could be an issue where there might be some popular support.

    I am against the use of violence against persons except in the case of defense in the face of an immediate and proximate threat.

    It is pretty sick - but could be an effective way of operating without getting arrested so easily.
    You only have to say that you are targetting a particular minority for it to adversely affect that minority.
    The Mafia have been able to strike fear into people just by intimidating them.
    It's a rotten thing to do, but these days you could even do it by E-Mail.

    The Real IRA insisted, however, that support for them was building and they had turned away hundreds of young disaffected nationalists because they didn't have the capacity to absorb so many members.
    Talk about believing your own hype.

    They haven't been enjoying slow and steady growth, it seems.

    What a shower of muppets. Interesting take on who ruined their country. Appears that they think they are British now? Bring back internment for these clowns I say.
