An Irish woman's social, political and domestic commentary
Friday, July 29, 2005
I keep turning off radio stations and still can't avoid the complete tripe about this IRA statement. Hands of history are yet again upon us. This statement by the Taoiseach sums it up: "Tonight will be the first night since 1969 we won't go to our beds feeling that same threat right over our heads. "
Oh hello? What were those so-called permanent ceasefires all about? I thought anyone who didn't believe the ceasefires were permanent was some kind of moron or bigoted unionist?
And did John Hume or Seamus Mallon's names get mentioned at all? No. Gerry Adams's campaign for presidency just started.
What I still cannot understand is how Bertie is making SF look good. If SF win seats in the next general it will be from FF. I always supposed that Bertie just wanted the peace process out of the way so he could take on SF properly but they are making saints out McGuinness and Adams. How do people fall for this crap?

Bertie unintentionally imitates the ridicule in the US that greeted the changing of "Global War on Terror" to "Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism":Post a Comment
On the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, correspondent Stephen Colbert reports: "Finally the phrase 'war on terror' is over, and we can all get on with our lives."
