Soldiers pulled out of Massereene Army barracks


Wednesday, 6 October 2010

Hundreds of troops have been moved out of the military base where two soldiers were murdered last year.

About 450 engineers were transferred from Massereene Army barracks in Antrim to another camp at Aldergrove.

The move comes amid increased dissident republican acitivity in the area, although the MoD has said the decision was not prompted by security concerns.

Last year Sappers Mark Quinsey (23) and Patrick Azimkar (21) were gunned down as they collected pizza from the gates of the Massereene hours before they deployed to Afghanistan.

Five others were also seriously wounded in the attack that was claimed by the Real IRA.

Utter rubbish Cael to portray this as a major retreat and by implication for your colleagues in micro -republican world. Most dissidents are squealing as soon as they see a cell and the criminal infested ranks guarantee a steady stream of informers . Your only comfort is that the Brits are not allowed to do a Loughgall (yet) in case more illiterate youth sign up for a futile cause.Keep bombing Doire !

I don't understand what this thread is about.Is it some sort of celebration of a victory by murdering thugs? And the use of the description "Brits" is insulting.We all have family somewhere in England,Scotland or Wales.Why this endless hatred against our neighbors across the pond.Including our Celtic brothers and sisters in Scotland,Wales,Cornwall.This nonsense has to end.

It's about 350 more than your lot has. Skangers. You represent nobody in this country. You're traitors to what the vast, vast majority of what we, the Irish people, actually want and voted for. You're fascists, trying to impose your wingnut vision on us, a vision we don't want. Go away. Just go the f£&k away.

You calling anyone a fascist is certainly a bizarre turn of events. We saw how much democracy there is in Ireland when the people voted the "wrong" way in the Nice and Lisbon referenda.

Will find out ,one attack would not justify the movement ,it has not been under constant bombardment .
Theres more to consider than an isolated attack. We don't know the specifics - but given the track history of the RIRA, that is, attacking Brits at their own front gates and tunnelling into bases, the onus is on you to find a more plausible explanation, because the word 'retreat' is the only apt word here.

Well, thats par for the course. The Brits needed 35,000 just to handle the PIRA 1,200 volunteers. The lopsided numbers are par for the course indeed.

We're after you too this time. Everyone on this island is after you my friend. You represent no one. You're sociopaths with deep daddy issues.

Not the 14% who support the IRA anyway. And, I doubt if Republicans will be too worried about milksops like you and your fantasies of British imperial glory.

That 14% is BS so you can stop bashing the bishop. If you asked me if I had sympathy for their motives I'd probably say yes. I want a UI too. John Hume would too. That's not the same as saying I support blowing things up. Only human hating nutters like you could support this provo porn.

Back when the two soldiers were killed I remember a few people citing gthat massereene barracks was due to be closed down anyway. That's all this is. There is no way this is a retreat. It's much more likely that this was gonna happen anyway regardless of the attacl last year.

The only apt word here is delusional and that's exactly what you are.

The MOD would have cited that if it was true. The plain fact is that the safety of these British soldiers was not secure in Massereene because of Partisan activity.

Aldergrove is South and West of Antrim, so this is actually an advance further into Irish territory.:rolleyes:

It's a retreat to a more secure area of the occupied territory.
