Old habits die hard. Comes the news that a 300lbs car bomb has been discovered near to a primary school in County Down here in Northern Ireland.
The bomb, which could have caused a substantial loss of life and much damage, was found in the back of a black Volkswagen Bora during a security operation in the village of Castlewellan, County Down, in Northern Ireland. The car was located in the Dublin Road and Burrenreagh Road area. An Army bomb disposal team carried out a detailed examination of the vehicle, while the surrounding area was searched.
Just a few comments.
1. When we hear the usual mantra from the political establishment that those behind this will achieve nothing because terrorism does not pay – should we laugh or weep?
2. Will Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness commend the bravery of the British Army in defusing this bomb?
3. I wonder what the target of this massive bomb was going to be? What sort of evil monsters spend their time planning such atrocities…….apart from the IRA, UVF, UDA, and whatever did happen to them?
