18. I wonder if the following excerpt
from an article from a pamphlet published by the New Ulster Movement on the subject of the violence in Northern Ireland could have some bearing on the mystery!

"In every society, but especially in large urban complexes with areas of deprivation, there are a number of anti-social young men who are aggressive, impulsive, egotistical, and have a ruthless disregard for the feelings of others. They enjoy danger and resent authority. Usually these psychopaths are the outcasts of society and find their outlet in criminal or other anti-social behaviour. They are apprehended by the law in normal times as they find no support in the community. But in Belfast and Derry to-day they have found a home among the ranks of extremist and terrorist organisations. Instead of being the outcasts of society they become acceptable and in some cases are publically recognised as leaders. A similar pattern was seen in Germany in the thirties and forties, and in Algeria in the fifties. Some of the recent atrocities in our cities would seem to have been perpetrated by this type of man. No one section has a monopoly. There is certainly a number of anti-social, aggressive psychopaths among Protestant extremists. also, who only require the leadership of evil men to unleash their violence on society".

Mercenary operatives, Guantanamo-type institutions, even the neocon, rogue FBI operatives may be enjoying a freer hand!

Then read this URL. After all, it's only now that a glimmer of accountability is beginning to be required of the neocons' favourite functionaries and supporters.
