It’s impossible to deliver, so let’s move on

By Brian Feeney (for the Irish News)

In practical terms decommissioning was always a nonsense. The arguments are well known. Surrendering weapons doesn’t prevent an organisation acquiring new and more modern weaponry as the Real IRA proved. Besides, at the end of the IRA campaign improvised devices knocked up in sheds and garages were causing more devastation than factory-produced military hardware.
