Britain's Reward for Supporting the War
On Democracy Now Amy Goodman mentioned that the State Department has put an Irish political group on its terrorist sponsors list. This group pushed for the removal of all British troops from Ireland. The group operates legaly in Ireland and Britain, but the State Department claim the group has connection to the Irish Republican Army. Could this be a part of the Bush Administration's thank you to the British for supporting the war in Iraq?

2. Bush's first St. Patricks day in WH: invited Ian Paisley to spend the day.
Bush poured gasoline on this fire from the beginning and has been on the side of chaos. And that's a side Blair is not on.

The Tories used fear of the IRA to win elections in the same way Bush is now using fear of terrorism to win elections. Anything that increases the tension in the UK is meant to hurt Labour and help the Tories.

3. Also it hits Clinton's legacy and is a gambit for more war profit.
RepubliCONS were yelping that Clinton was desperate to have a legacy letting me mention to those pathetic dittoheads of economic success for all eight years, peace in Ireland, and moving toward peace in Israel. They poor dears snarked and choked they were so flustered.

So, RepubliCONS set out to destabilize worldwide hot-spots to get into a war-means-perpetual-re-election mode (aside from making daddy a lot of money mode).

More problems in Ireland only help Blair and Bush and their CONservative dupes.

6. Perhaps this is to make amends for...
all the money and guns which the IRA terorists have received from sources in the US over the past thirty years.
