British Army to scale down presence…

According to a senior British Army spokesman, the IRA’s war is over regardless of any outstanding issues of decommissioning. “The indications are that, given 9/11, the IRA are not going to return to terrorism,” said the senior officer. “There isn’t the popular support, either in Ireland or the US.” So much so that it’s thought that the British military will scale down its presence in Northern Ireland when the UK wide review kicks in next month. How’s that for choreography?
