Conflict Overview:

The Troubles is moving into it's third decade, and there is still no signs of improvement to the current situation. It is clear to all, that the gap between the loyalists and the republicans, has expanded rapidly.
The fire was lit back in 1969, doing the riots of Derry, also knowns as the Battle of the Bogside. This resulted in the deployment of british troops on irish soil, who led to escalating the issue further.

The early seventies is remembered as the bloodiest years so far.  As the Official IRA started moving away from the armed struggle, towards a non-violent civil agitation policy, people started imagining a brighter future. Insted of peace talks the Provisional IRA and the Irish National Liberation Army, was created as an armed response towards the British. The bombing campaign from both sides doing the seventies, did throw extra fuel on the fire. Bombs went of both in North Ireland and on english soil. Some of the more known cases is the M62 coach bombing where 12 people were killed, and the Birmingham pub bombings in 1974, where 21 civilians were killed on multiple pubs around Birmingham. In 1979 the Provisional IRA was successful killing the queen's cousin, Lord Mountbatten in a bomb, planted on his boat.

It has now been three years since the organised hunger strike in 1981. Kicking new energy into the conflict. With over a 100,000 people attending Bobby Sands funeral, it'is save to say that the resistance against the english is still alive and well.

The Irish National Liberation Army also knowns as the INLA, has become highly active here in the start eighties. The Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, has supplied the INLA and the Provisional IRA with a large amount of weapons and explosives. This is done as an responds to the British assisting the bombing of Tripoli, who costed one of Gaddafi's children their live. The INLA has become one of the main contributors to the bombing campaign, against british targets. Their latest major bombing episode, was The Droppin Well bombing. Eleven soldiers and six civilians were killed at the disco, targeted due to being popular among off duty british soldiers.
Recent Events:

Two days ago, on the 12 of October 1984, another bomb went off. This time targeting the Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and the conservative party. The bomb was in the Brighton hotel, one floor above the Prime Ministers suite. The explosion has costed the live of five people including Conservative MP Sir Anthony Berry and injured thirty-four others. The first thing Margaret Thatcher did after her debrief at the local police station was to pick up the phone, calling army headquarters. She informed them on the situation, giving them the green light to activate "Operation Shutdown".

IRA statement - 13.10.1984 0800

"Mrs. Thatcher will now realise that Britain cannot occupy our country and torture our prisoners and shoot our people in their own streets and get away with it. Today we were unlucky, but remember we only have to be lucky once. You will have to be lucky always. Give Ireland peace and there will be no more war."

Margaret Thatcher statement - 13.10.1984 0930

"That is the scale of the outrage in which we have all shared, and the fact that we are gathered here now—shocked, but composed and determined—is a sign not only that this attack has failed, but that all attempts to destroy democracy by terrorism will fail."
