"Extortion has an extensive legacy in Northern Ireland, with many of the paramilitary groups demanding what they termed a ', which is like describing a spot on the middle segment of the human centipede as a lodging complete with complimentary buffet and en-suite bathroom."

Ew... and yet imaginative.  Well-played.

I was recently in Northern Ireland. Maybe it was just Sunday; but, none of us saw a single car or pedestrian on the city streets of Belfast. Contrasted with Dublin; where there's always a million people out running around; and tons of cars.

That whole damn article is written with an eye towards vivid use of language.

I approve.

When violence you do renounce
Turn your guns to castles that bounce
For the Brits are still rotten
With fun misbegotten
For if you want a pound give an ounce.

It was just Sunday. Belfast is quiet, of a Sunday.


Now I miss Belfast.

Oh, and I like that the INLA and the other paramilitary groups "turned" to crime. The IRA and the others through the entire length of the Troubles were in the thick of extortion, drug dealing (despite the mythologizing of both merry band of killers that they wouldn't, and that was the other guy's evil deed), and theft on an epic scale.

Let's not forget that in their valiant struggles to win freedom they bombed such military targets as markets, pubs, newspapers, and commuter rail stations. Good thing they weren't brown and/or Muslim or somebody might have mistaken them for terrorists.

Sounds like when the mafia bombed some good humor trucks and the public turned on them

The IRA did a lot of things to make money.  Dealing drugs wasn't one of them.  Your high value information from the gutter tabloids isn't accurate.  They shot drug dealers instead.

The INLA on the other hand were a bunch of security rejects that the IRA didn't want.  They only had one member who died on the hunger strikes.  They weren't well regarded in most placed by working class catholics because they had no central command to control the excesses of their local units.  I know of one case where a member of the INLA was immigrating to Australia.  His comrades staged an armed robbery to pay for a going away party at a local bar.

So when the whole freedom fighter thing didn't work out they just became thugs.
