How can Adams help Eta if he wasn't in IRA?

I WAS interested to read that Gerry Adams has joined a delegation to Spain to help the government and the separatist Eta movement resolve their differences (News, October 17).

One wonders what help he will be, given that he was never in the IRA and, therefore, not part of the 'armed struggle' here.

It would have been better to send Martin McGuinness, although his experience as an 'armed combatant' is limited to only four out of the 30 years of violence here.

I'm sure the Eta representatives would prefer to hear from someone with more direct experience.
