The BBC reports that the British army is dismantling a number of security posts and bases in South Armagh following the IRA's statement.
I am sorry but that is bullshit!!
"A base at Forkhill will close, while a watchtower at Sugarloaf Mountain and an observation post at Newtownhamilton police station will also be removed."
All of which had been decided over 6 months ago and has nothing to do with the IRA statement. The same base in Forkhill is not closing for good as the British army will still be there.
When are they going to remove one of the ugliest sights in South Armagh, their watch tower on Dromintee mountain?
