OK, all of you who advocates the car bombing of banks and killing anyone innocent who happens to be in the vicinity including bank customer.....,

In that it diverts attention you mean?
So you're saying that bankers are responsible for all the violent atrocities being committed by people around the world? You're saying that the chap working behind the counter at Lloyd's who has helped me deposit money into my savings is in some way, contributing to innocent people being bombed?
You're assuming that EVERY banker is corrupt and a thief. Personally I think you're horribly misguided or mislead. Not every one of them is evil or corrupt. I know a few (as I work in London) and sure, they are some who are very driven by money and reward, but NONE that I know have any desire to do harm or cause a person to go bankrupt.
And so what happens when these moronic IRA soldiers start bombing UK banks and bankers? I'll tell you. The UK up's its military presence in Northern Ireland. More and more focus is placed there, tensions rise, tempers ignite and people start fighting each other and bring up old arguements as justifications for renewed violence.

It was the very bombing of the financial centres in London that brought about the Good Friday Agreement in the first place. Up until then the British Governement was unwilling to talk peace or make any deals with the IRA, after all they were only bombing military barrracks, shopping centres, car bombings etc but when they hit the City of London they were forced to make the move as too many big Banks/Corporations were ready to move outside the UK.
Maybe it was a due to all of them and more....and maybe people were just sick of the killing and just wanted to get on and live their lives.

This has nothing to do with McGuiness and Adams who, for all their past sins, have been working hard to maintain the peace and help Ireland move forward.
C.I.R.A. are very mistaken if they think they will gain public support by any such attack, quite the contrary, will they never learn?

As a fairly new ATS member I am appalled at what I have read on this post! Zamini advocating terrorism? WTF? How many of you on here who say that the IRA is right to bomb banks (for that is what they will do - its what they know) have EVER been on the receiving end of a terrorist attack? I honestly can't believe what I have read and you people should be ashamed of yourselves.
Do you think that by bombing banks the world will suddenly be alright? Since when did terrorism ever solve anything? What do you think will happen if the IRA does carry out it's threat? Let me tell you - innocent people will die (bank customers - we all need bank accounts, people passing by in the street, the bank tellers who need to work to pay their bill etc), bank fees will increase and bank security will go through the roof. Will the banks themselves suffer? No, we the people will suffer.
Shame on you people who think the IRA attacking banks and bankers is a good idea.
