Let's just hope it's true...

The IRA claims that it's formally ending its armed campaign as of 1500 GMT today, twenty minutes from now as I write.

I'm not leaping to believe. Even if the statement is true, it'll be too late to help the approximately 1,800 people for whose deaths the IRA is responsible*. But I can still hope...

* = And, in fairness, those killed or brutalised by British troops or Loyalist paramilitary groups. For all my hatred of the IRA, I'm not so blind as to believe they're the only wrong-doers in the Northern Ireland wars.
