Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

IRA vows to end armed campaign

If it's true, it is great news. Let's set the over/under on how long it will last at six months.

From what I hear the big problem will be distinguishing between the IRA's political activities (which have been overwhelmingly non-violent for some time) and its recent expansion into local organized crime. Since the peace agreements during the Clinton years (Come back Shane! Come back!), many IRA factions have essentially become mafia gangs with political rhetoric. They run rackets, prostitution, protection etc. Will those "IRA" factions disarm? Will it matter if they don't? Will the Unionists use the continuation of largely apolitical, criminal activity by groups calling themselves "IRA" as an excuse to restart violence on their end?
