Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
How do they escape a military commitment if the violence levels do rise? What do they do if police and customs are targeted?

I think they'll abandon Ulster. They''ll run away.

They might, might, offer some form of small subsidy for re-location to unionist, but given what's happening in Scotland and what will certainly happen on the ground in Ulster, I think they'd be wise to cut their losses and get out.

They could treat it as a criminal matter for the police to handle, trying to track down the guilty parties and bring them to a fair trial, all in order to isolate the violent elements from the community at large.

Though looking at the so called war on terror, maybe they just can't help themselves.

but, by jingo, if we do,
we've got the guns, we've got the men
we've got the money too oh shit, maybe not

First Rule of GWOT (Global War On Terror): All terrorists are in other countries, so you have to send your troops to those countries.

Their terrorists are in other countries. Our terrorists wear our uniforms...
