Adams Must Indeed Decommission
Tom Luby • 17 January 2004

Nicholas Whyte has been living in Belgium too long and the strong beer they brew there must have addled his brain. Either that or his membership of the Alliance party has robbed him of intellectual judgement. There is only one interpretation of the conclusion of my article of Adams' dilemma and it was so clear I didn't feel the need to spell it out. To avoid the destruction of his strategy, Adams must indeed decommission transparently and then wind down what remains of the IRA. Nicholas thought that perhaps I meant a "return to the policies of 1981". What on earth does that mean? Adams going on hunger strike? I don't think so! That was something only other people did.
