Well since the editorial for January was written events have unfolded, which clearly illustrate that the Provisional movement are nothing but gangsters. The following events illustrate this: -
the brutal murder of Robert McCartney
the brutal murder of James McGinley
robberies at Makro, the Northern Bank and a shipping company
convictions of a gang of thugs in Dublin
The McCartney murder has been well documented. Members of PIRA murdered him in cold blood; they cleaned the pub of all forensic evidence and intimidated witnesses.
The McGinley murder has only come to the forefront recently. A senior member of the Provisional movement in Londonderry stabbed him to death. The police have been able to prosecute the murderer, Bart Fisher. He got 3 years. Following the murder the Provisionals intimidated the family in many ways including telling them to be quiet. Fundraising events were held by the Provos, attended by many other criminals to raise money not for McGinley and his family but Fisher.
The robberies are ongoing and raise millions for an army "on ceasefire." We all knew the money laundering was happening and continues to happen according to the Irish Prime Minister. Watch the media for more developments on this front.
In February 5 men putting up election posters for Sinn Fein were arrested as they had Garda uniforms, a stun gun and other suspect materials with them. They were convicted of IRA membership and were sentenced to 4 years in prison. Two of them would have been 14 years old when the "ceasefire" was declared by the Provos. That speaks volumes.
Sinn Fein and the Provos are the same organisation. They are murderers (of their own community), gangsters and goodness knows what else will come out in the months ahead.
The question we need to ask is what will that movement do to take the heat off itself? Will it engineer trouble in interface areas to take the heat off and make it look as though it defends it's community? The months ahead will prove to be interesting.
