The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

The End of the I.R.A.?
A NYTimes story citing an American businessman as saying he has been briefed on plans for the I.R.A. to announce later this week that it is giving up violence in its struggle for a re-united Ireland, in favor of a political struggle.

If the announcement happens, and is followed through on, this is a great step that I applaud.

Update 7/28: It's true. The IRA has officially pledged to end the "armed conflict" and pursue its aims through political means. Let's hope this marks a true turning point, and a model for similar conflicts, like Israel/Palestine.
