While Colman composes his reply, the Royal Navy is now positioning itself around Belfast, shelling suspected Republican strongholds. Fighter planes roam overhead, dropping bombs here and there (precision bombing only). The electric supply has been cut throughout town, and the civil population is being told that it's up to itself to get rid of the IRA if it wants its heaters to work.

The international press is divided. Some intellectuals argue that the IRA actually blew up bombs before taking prisoners, making the shelling of Belfast legitimate. Other intellectuals meanwhile recognize that being the UK is not easy, that negotiation with the IRA is near to impossible, but that neither of those two things justify the shelling of Belfast.

Actually, it would have been more approprate for the British (in this fictional instance) to attack IRA stongholds near Dublin.
