    Default PSNI claim major blow against new IRA in Derry

    I think this is worthy of a new thread out of the usual NI forum ghetto.

    The PSNI intercepted five mortars which were about to be fired at a police station in Derry this morning. Three men were arrested, two of whom are reputed to be major players in the new dissident IRA.


    "This is a major coup against the new IRA," one security officer said. "This pair are key operators in Derry and the north-west. This would have been one of the biggest operations dissident republicans have organised and the fact that it was thwarted is a big blow to their morale alongside the loss of personnel and weaponry."


    Earlier a senior police officer in the city confirmed that a van with its roof cut out was on its way to fire the mortars at one of the main Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) stations in Derry. He said the mortars were only minutes from being fired at their target.
    Every sane person will welcome this. These dissidents are deranged anti-nationals who must be crushed.

    Deranged? Au contraire. They are the de jure govt. of Ireland.

    I doubt this was down to good intelligence by the PSNI more like the old provos keeping the new version in check.

    Indeed I do, but it seems you cannot grasp the concept of it.

    Oh, indeed I do. I suggest it's time for you to apply the cream for the acne, and retire to watch Home and Away. Good boy.

    The posters from the 'main' forum are such a refreshing change from the normal NI forum bickering comments...

    SDLP and SF almost certain mortar bombers should not have a playground named after them. For a while, anyway.
