I cannot believe this. Is it an April Fool's Day joke in July? I will need to see this story widely covered by International Media before I will believe it is true. Then we will need to wait and see if it makes a difference in the violence in Northern Ireland.

Excuse my skepticism, but I wonder why this sudden move? I am wondering if it doesn't have something to do with them being branded as terrorist in the global conflict? Blair certainly is happy about it:

IRA MOVE 'UNPARALLELED' : BLAIR

Political leaders are welcoming the Irish Republican Army's formal order for its members to renounce violence as a potentially historic step toward peace.

I'm sure it has to do with global terrorism, and I'm also fairly certain that the IRA was pressured by the USA and the UK to do this. And I'm also fairly certain that there will always be "splinter groups" or "insurgents" who will carry on their cause, regardless of what the mainstream group decides. Perhaps the majority of the violence will now cease, but I believe there will always be those who will continue to fight for sovereignty.

All in my own opinion, of course.

Farseer, you just had to throw that wrench in Mr. Blair's joy ;). I was thinking that same thing, but even if it happens at a small scale (more attacks by former IRA insurjent members) at least the British do not have to worry about a formal army. I am also worried about some Brits using that to say nasty things while demolishing their buildings like 'We won' or 'You loosers', etc.

The IRA probably disbanded due to the fact that if they don't America will attack them. This happened in Libya and especially how Qaddafi has played with America like a dog.
