It took a little longer than it should for the US government to recognize the CIRA as the terrorists that they are but now they have:
The US State Department has added the Continuity IRA to its list of foreign terrorist organisations. . . . It will be illegal for anyone in the US or under US jurisdiction to provide material support
Next thing you know they'll be de-funding Noraid. But then you do start to wonder why the US is doing this. Because one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter, read on:
The dissident republican groups are opposed to the Good Friday Agreement and the current political process and continue to launch attacks on the security forces in Northern Ireland.
The Continuity IRA has been responsible for bomb attacks across Northern Ireland.
. . .
There are two main dissident republican factions, the Continuity IRA and the Real IRA.
"Dissidents"? You mean like Vaclav Havel, Mahatma Gandhi or that man who blocked the tanks in Tianamen Square. Of course only typical of the evil Americans and their British lapdogs to call such people terrorists. Actually, perhaps in this case that should read: the evil British and their American lapdogs.
Of course US foreign ministry's action is highly necessary, because as I've pointed out before the IRA is still a potentially real problem and is also connected with the wider global terrorism networks.
