Whoa, this is big. (If they act upon it)
The IRA said in its statement: “The leadership of [the IRA] has formally ordered an end to the armed campaign. This will take effect from 4pm this afternoon.
“All IRA units have been ordered to dump arms. All volunteers have been instructed to assist the development of purely political and democratic programmes through exclusively peaceful means.
“Volunteers must not engage in any other activities whatsoever.”
I so hope this will work out – the irish people deserves peace, after all that time…
A word to the british government: give them the benefit of the doubt – let democracy reign.
