Dissident republicans have been blamed for planting a fire-bomb found in a busy shopping area in Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh yesterday afternoon.

British army experts were brought in to defuse the incendiary device after it was discovered in a men's clothing store in the High Street area of the town.

A number of items were taken away for forensic examination.

I am glad the Army were able to defuse it, seeings it was a busy shopping area and could have caused so much damage to shops and shoppers. I feel that certain PIRA members have probably started to work with dissidents since Sinn Fein is planning to support the police in Northern Ireland, which the PIRA is strongly against.

Just thank God that device never went off.

It's true that these dissidents are potential trouble.

The thing is tho that if Sinn Fein do join the Police the dissident crowd will probably find life difficult to the point of being impossible.

Everything I've ever read or heard on this issue says in no uncertain terms that the dissident elements are a tiny minority (way way smaller than the provos ever were) and that they have been thoroughly penetrated by the security forces (on both sides of the border)......and there is also every reason to believe that they are well 'known' to SF and PIRA.

The fact that their attempts to date have all failed probably speaks volumes about that.

I don't think there can be any parallel drawn between the situation now and that as it was at any time in the past.

We truly have never been here before............and I see no reason to choose to prefer a pessimistic outlook on the future to one of optimism.

That why Sinn Fein have to sign up to the police. its very important for the future especially since the DUP will not move until its been met.

ETA, as it seems, have restarted their attacks in Spain today.

This is worrying for us because both ETA and IRA have close links. Lets hope the RIRA do not see what ETA is doing and decide to follow them.

But according to the UDA, British and Irish governments have "back door" links to dissdent republicans

- That's a great pity, it had been looking like they have been making progress over there.
With luck it may just be a short stalling of progress as we saw in relation to the negotiations over NI in 1996 and the Canary Wharf bomb.

- Thankfully things could hardly be more different.

The Sinn Fein party's executive have just agreed to put forward and support a motion to a special general party membership meeting in support of the Police and the new devolved judicial institutions.

- Don't they always (and for perfectly understandable reasons)?

As I've mentioned here before it's pretty much common knowledge over here that the dissident groups are thoroughly penetrated by the security forced north and south.
