Nábídána is shocked and disgusted to hear of the appalling terrorist attack on an army barracks in Co. Antrim.  Our thoughts are with the families of those murdered and injured, and we sit tonight in cold apprehension at the effect this will now have on the streets of Northern Ireland and the road, well travelled, down which this may drag us all.

Update:  This rather puts into perspective the fundamentally ignorant comments of Martin McGuinness this week when he said that the decision to bring an intel regiment into Northern Ireland posed ‘a serious threat’.  Would dissidents have been emboldened by those comments, or was the decision by Sir Hugh Order the right one, just tragically too late?
