Thor's day morning, breaking news

The AP reports from Dublin that the Irish Republican Army yesterday, Wednesday, withdrew its offer to disarm. The interpretation by the news press association is that this action "deepens the deadlock." (Hmmmm... strange mix of metaphors. Wouldn't 'strengthen' the deadlock be better?

______There is a belief that the peace process was hampered by the bank heist, and the alleged involvement by the IRA. Accusations had been released to the press by law enforcement authorities in Northern Ireland and England.

______The IRA sternly rejected the criticisms from the law and the governments of England and Ireland that it was committing major crimes. The IRA equally rejects blame for the worsening 'impasse.'

______However, the IRA says that it will abide by the cease-fire.
