Don't reckon this is the work of the INLA - none of the hostages or bank workers got shot and they didn't shoot each other in a row over the money on the way home. twisted

Perhaps some involvement from retired republican paramilitaries, perhaps not. Basically what we've got here are some shit hot bank robbers - this doesn't look like its their first job (same mo used in several robberies this year) but its certainly their most spectacular.

Very fucking spectacular indeed - can't help but admire that!

Educational : INLA - erstwhile military wing of the IRSP. Want to see a united republican socialist Ireland with no Brits interfering. Lots of trotty influences and yes, given to ridiculous and harmful feuds (boul). Mercury tilt switch - Airey Nieve, Houses of Parliament, historical info.

Need to go and take supper out the oven now and feed family, back shortly.

In the 1970s the INLA and various other factions split from the Official IRA, which the Provies had left in 1969. They then busied themselves robbing hunge amounts from banks, post offices and piggy banks in the North and the Republic -- that's why this reminded me of them.

Like Bocboy says, i reckin there's involvement but whoever did this was professional -- is there much of this happening in belfast previously?

na, they were for the '32 county republic', and most of their members were ex-official IRA, ten of them died in the hunger strikes They were the military wing of the IRSP.

Bunch of nutters in terms of their methods and some of their goals tho, but they did kill billy wright and airey neeve, and they were slightly preferable to the rightward shift and anti-civilian tactics of the provos or sinn fein i would guess.

a soewhat biased view of history:

Well the AP/RN, official mouthpiece of Sinn Fein and the provisional republican movement, led with this:

"Republicans believe disaffected members of the British security forces may have worked with unionist paramilitaries to carry out the largest bank robbery in Irish history."

Seems a bit strange but sure who knows? BTW two members of the INLA died on hunger strike not ten, 10 men died in total - the rest being Provos.

Yeah, the method of taking hostages and forcing the workers or keyholders to basically hand the money to ya has been used several times in the last lot of months. The scale of this one sort of blows everything else outta the water though. smile

if i knew that i'd be onto the confidential crimestoppers hotline and collecting a big fat fucking reward!

how the fuck are we suppoused to know.

and the INLA may have shot Blly Wight (with british collusion BTW) but the cunt who done it is a fucking piece of shit and got sent down for a particular brave act of anti imperialism, shooting a door man in the head because he wasn't allowed into a local snooker hall.

Well, maybe he REALLY wanted to play snooker.

Apparently one of them once caught the 73 bus. And then touched kids.

I don't either. In the 70's the 'lumpen scum' confused of the INLA could pull off the odd good job or two, but now there's about 30 of 'em and a few are still inside. I can't see what they'd spend the money on seeing as they've been on cessfire since '98. The Provos are unlikely to have been the culprits at this crucial stage in peace process. Just a bunch of crims if you ask me.

if it was the INLA they'd have been found dead at the scene having shot each other in an argument over who got to carry the bag.

INLA were a weird mixture. I did like some of the political people though, at the time.

Actually, maybe it was PIRA, who have been practicing in 26 counties. Pensions fund for the army to be stood down and all (blind eye will be turned by the authorities, small price to pay for decommissioning and better than photos? etc)

Just a thought.

I wonder if you're joking or just confused.

At any rate, no, the INLA fought the Brits in the struggle for national liberation. Their goal was not to part of the UK, but to reunify Ireland under as a worker's republic.

well if ur confused about the lumpen statement u should come over to northern ireland and ask any dog on the street about many of the activities the INLA get up to, punishment beatings, drug dealing, shooting each other over revenue, oh aye and a wee bit o prostitution.

actually it all makes sense! the INLA are the embodiment of the working class for the Class War federation, thick and with a love of violence.

'Ask any dog on the street' . . . that's the kind of argument a reactionary would use. There's zero evidence of prostitution (in fact, that's one I haven't heard before). There were gangs who called themselves the INLA to carry out crimes, but they were also dealt with. There was a statement from the INLA about this not long ago.

Anyone with EVIDENCE of IRSM criminality should report it to the IRSP office at 392 Falls Road Belfast.

I don't think any of the Loyalist paras possess the brain power to pull something like this off....but the INLA were nutters, even if they did manage to pull off that genius bit of car bombing on one of Thatchers cronies.

well the source i heard about the prostitution from is very reliable and the person who told him had first hand experiance of being offered such services, i wouldn't imagine the primary source making this up as he was an INLA supporter at the time, iirc.

It's amazing how every criminal action is by rogue elements, ex members or people just using the name. Fuck your worse than the RUC "just a few bad apples" . Ever stop to wonder why soo many people in the INLA ended up involved in hooding activities?

Since you are getting your information from VERY RELIABLE sources, there's nothing for me to do but roll over and accept your accusations right.

I don't know 'so many people', I just know a few hoods who were either expelled or shot by the INLA leadership when their actions were revealed. These hoods were later organised by the Provisional Rosary Bead Brigade into the IPLO.

If the INLA is so bad, why are their martyrs like Gino thought of so highly in some estates?

And we're in no way comparable to the RUC . . . I don't even see how you can drawn that conclusion.
