For God and Ulster - NOT

I used to think Gusty Spence's first name paid tribute to some monumental farting ability, then someone told me his parents had named him Augustus, and the bottom fell out of my world like the day I found out about Santa.

I jest, but the hot air and disappointment meted out by today's (non)-disarmament by the "UVF" and the "Red Hand Commando" is similar. We all thought they'd go down the same road as the IRA, but they've only gone half way. In their so-called peace statement they say their weapons have been put "out of reach" by members. What's that supposed to mean? Look through the hype of a supposedly ground-breaking statement - made by the most media-unfriendly man they could find - and the paramilitary organisations still possess guns, bullets and bomb-making materials like those they've used to kill of 500 people. Not a bullet, not an ounce has been destroyed. It's a scandal, and the public mustn't let them away with it.

Not only that but they haven't gone away, you know. The organisation still exists with its command structures. They could have set a law-abiding example for the Provisional IRA, but they failed to do so.

Don't tell me this is for God or Ulster. God hates murder and violence, and you need to hand your weapons in to the police, disband and get on your knees before Him somewhere quiet. Our ancient province of Ulster doesn't need attitudes like yours.

I'm not aware of your position on the mainstrean Unionist politicians still active today, who were complicit with the likes of the UVF. And other illegal paramilitary activities.

Should they not also get on their knees and beg forgiveness before God. Despite the fact that one of them seems to think he is God :)

All politicians are involved with terrorists virtue of their involvement in the "peace" process.

Aye Hanson Republicans did reach out to deal with Ervine et al in a conciliatory manner. mainstrean Unionist politicians used them for their dirty work, then washed their hands.

Gary were Loyalists lying when they said they could tell you the colour of their wallpaper?

Did the third force et al not import weapons that are still unaccounted for?

What is there to justify in links between SF and the IRA?
