Terror group vows to resume attacks with British banks and bankers potential targets.
By Dr. Pitchfork
I've been predicting that Ireland would be the real ground zero for bank bailout rage. They bailed out all the banks and bondholders, instituted a crash program of fiscal austerity, and the people are catching on and getting violent. The Irish papers even have editorials about whacking the bondholders. (O si sic omnes!) But I never thought that bank bailout rage in Ireland would come to involve Semtex and detonating cord.
In one of the most bizarre bank bailout developments to date, the Real IRA has put British bankers on notice, threatening bombing attacks on banks and bankers, including London's financial district. Given the sorry state of the economy on both sides of the border, the Real IRA may have found what turns out to be its best recruiting tactic yet: combine nationalist, anti-colonial rhetoric with the population's already seething anger at banks, bankers and the governments that bail them out.
Excerpt from The Guardian
Banks and bankers are now potential targets for the Real IRA, leaders of the dissident republican terror group have warned in an exclusive interview with the Guardian. Despite having only 100 activists they also said that targets in England remained a high priority.
In an attempt to tap into the intense hostility towards the banks on both sides of the Irish border they branded bankers as "criminals" and said: "We have a track record of attacking high-profile economic targets and financial institutions such as the City of London. The role of bankers and the institutions they serve in financing Britain's colonial and capitalist system has not gone unnoticed.
"Let's not forget that the bankers are the next-door neighbours of the politicians. Most people can see the picture: the bankers grease the politicians' palms, the politicians bail out the bankers with public funds, the bankers pay themselves fat bonuses and loan the money back to the public with interest. It's essentially a crime spree that benefits a social elite at the expense of many millions of victims."
