The gang-like massacre of British soldiers in Northern Ireland's Massereene Army barracks shocked the world this weekend. "The important thing is that we must not see politics and the peace settlement that we have, fragile though it is, destabilised by this kind of action," said David Ford, the leader of the Alliance Party. Mark Durkan also condemned the attacks in an attempt to refocus towards peace. He stated, " "They need to understand this is not an attack on British army but the Irish people who have voted for and value above all else peaceful politics and democratic accommodation."

I hope you will watch. It is beautifully done.
Our thoughts are with the families of these British soldiers and our friends in the United Kingdom.
