The effect of 9/11 on Ulster

Good workmanlike analysis on the reaction amongst Loyalists and Republicans to Bush’s call for a ‘war on terrorism’. It opens, with the almost brutal observation, that “Churchill once remarked that not even the cataclysm of the First World War altered the integrity of our ‘quarrel’ here.” And goes on to conclude, “…the ‘war on terrorism’ has given fresh impetus to our old quarrel and has been bad for local community relations”.
