Well ...see

Who would you fear more:

A dozen Canadian Special Forces
or
A dozen Russian Alpha Team ?

I'd fear the second a lot more ...as they use any available means ...and morality places no restrictions on them

Well I never knew about the Russian Alpha Team in LH.

Oh cYp, its getting so exciting :)
 


O

Oscurito

Oh you can be sure that LH knows about Alpha

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_Group
Soon, Alpha was assigned missions far exceeding its formal scope.... It was Boyarinov who ordered that all Afghan witnesses of the operation be killed, and he was accidentally shot dead by Alpha troops when he was mistaken for a palace guard...
...Through a network of supporting KGB operatives, members of the task-force identified each of the perpetrators involved in the crisis, and once identified, began to take the relatives of these militants as hostages. Following the standard Soviet policy of no negotiations with terrorists, one of the hostages taken by Alpha Group had his testicles removed and sent to the militants before being killed.
... As a result of this pronouncement, on 9 January 1991, the Soviet leadership dispatched Alpha Group to quell the independence movement and maintain Lithuania's status as a Soviet republic. This attempt to re-establish Soviet dominance culminated in the violent seizure of the Vilnius TV Tower on 13 January 1991, during which the Soviet forces killed 13 unarmed Lithuanian protesters,....The operation was overseen by the head of the Special Purpose Center, Gen. Alexander Tikhonov, who forbade extinguishing the fire in the school,[64] while the actual attack was personally led by Gen. Pronichev, and supported by tanks, armoured personnel carriers and attack helicopters. John McAleese, a member of the Special Air Service (SAS) team which had liberated the Iranian Embassy in London in 1980, immediately called it one of the worst hostage rescue attempts he had seen or heard about.[2]

Enda has been big on the Green Jersey...we must all band together...and do whatever it takes...in the name of getting jobs

He threw the UK under the bus in the immediate aftermath of Brexit , chasing lucre. He constantly makes little and big "compromises" on our behalf

He appointed the pink social thing , as Minister for jobs, she sees it as her job, to bring home the bacon of kudos for jobs...for her patron.

She is a haughty wagon , who rubs almost everyone up the wrong way ...including claiming to have "pulled strokes" to get jobs

This is contributing massively to the DUP's sense of unease with Dublin...at rather parlous a time
Foster accuses Govt of poaching NI investors

So what should our strategy towards the NI be ?
a) Hyper competitive ...with the wagon on full attack
b) Enlightened co operation to get more value for all

And to what extent should the strategy be influenced by security and cultural factors ?

cyp
I absolutely cracked up when I heard Foster crying over this. 'It's not fair that the south takes advantage of us. Can't you see we're just babies. When we sh1t in our own cot you're supposed to clean it up' Surely to God there's some sexual emergency somewhere Cyp. more worthy of your valuable attention.:)

Eire gave succour to sf/ira and refused to allow extradition of murderers and brigands.

Arlene Foster: Brexit 'UK's biggest economic opportunity for decades' - BBC News

Brexit presents the biggest economic opportunity for the UK in decades, First Minster Arlene Foster has told the DUP conference.

Mrs Foster said that she respected those who wanted to remain, but that she has "no time for those who want to re-fight the referendum".

"That debate is over. Rather than talking up the challenges, we should be looking forward to the opportunities.

"Brexit represents the biggest economic opportunity for this country in decades.

"But, the only way we can ensure that Northern Ireland's interests are best served is if we are united and determined."
So what is Arlenes beef with the South looking after themselves? She is happy that "Brexit represents the biggest economic opportunity for this country in decades."

Because she knows in her heart of hearts that England - and lets remember it was England that voted for brexit - doesn't give a flying fúck about the North, and that if the roi prospers as a result of brexit in the form of firms relocating or setting up in Ireland to access the EU while the North rots, that she and her party will reap the whirlwind.

The north/south relationship is about to go through a profound change in the next decade which will either result in our becoming much closer or much further apart. The latter would seem to be the most likely at the moment but it could change very quickly if it starts to. The south will have enough problems with Brexit without having to listen to any tripe from the Dumbos and their 'biggest opportunity' bullshyte.

Eire will have to rejoin the UK. That is the elephant in the room.

Face up to it. Embrace your britishness Paddy.
Well, it looks like many in the UK inc NI are embracing their IRISHNESS judging by our busy passport office ..

Applications for Irish citizenship continue to surge post-Brexit

The Irish Embassy in London, which deals with passport applications from the UK excluding Northern Ireland, received 6,710 requests in August alone, more than twice the figure recorded in the same period in 2015.

In September there were 7,518 applications from the UK compared to 3,431 in 2015.

Application numbers also rose sharply in Northern Ireland, with an 80 per cent increase in August compared to the previous year. In September the numbers grew year-on-year from 2,549 to 4,126.
And look at this happy fella with his Irish Passport .. Wait ... Isnt that Ian whats his name??? :D
