GerryPandering-Airstrip One leads with a (pre-9/11) picture of Dubya chatting up what appears to be Sinn Fein boss Gerry Adams. Caption: "You're either with us or you're with the Terrorists" It's a tough call how to deal with Sinn Fein if they are playing somewhat nice. 9/11 has allowed the 2-by-4 approach to diplomacy more room. People recognize evil a bit better than before, and understand that there are some people that don't respond to diplomacy. While there are large irredentist pockets in the IRA, I'm not ready to throw in the towel on the Good Friday process. I'm talking out of marginal knowledge, but things seem to be better with the current process than they were before.
