[quote=Fitz]I pray this is true. The last time I went to Ireland, I flew Air Lingus and I read the magazine they handed out on the flight. It included a wonderful travel section from Northern Ireland. I was so very impressed and I really do want to visit the north. However, I don’t want to go into an area of danger. It does not seem worth it to me. I really do hope that terror activities in the North will be a thing of the past.
Basically, it is pretty safe now. The remaining violence is mostly between sectarian groups and people trying to adapt to drug dealing rather than terrorism. Innocents don’t really get caught up anymore, thankfully.
Do you think that they have been influenced by seeing how terrorists are behaving the world over? Do you think they really don’t view themselves as we view, let’s say El Quida?
I don’t especially think they would want to be in the same boat, but I think the credit really goes to the behind-the-scenes work. I won’t say this often (!), but both John Major and Tony Blair have done wonderful work in pushing this apparently impossible problem in the right direction towards a solution.
