Editor's Viewpoint: Grim anniversary
The deaths of two young soldiers in Antrim and that of a policeman in Craigavon around this time last year are commemorated this week by people in Northern Ireland, who have not forgotten the pain and suffering of their families.
No cause or ideology in any part of this island can justify such murder most foul. The widespread revulsion at such pointless brutality has not diminished with time. If anything, the condemnation has increased. The dissidents have nothing to offer anyone but a return to a world of violence, which nobody wants. In this society, politics should remain paramount. The bomb and the bullet belong to the past.
