Trouble in Belfast

It is with sadness that I read on slugger that the situation in Belfast seems to be spiralling out of control into an orgy of violence and destruction as Loyalists go on the rampage. While the ulimate responsibility lies with those carrying out the violence, blame must also be apportioned to the Unionist politicans seemed to condone the violence by saying that it was "inevitable" in order to try to overturn the decision of the Parades Commission. Unlike the Nationalist residents who called off their portest in order to attempt to maintain calm, it seems Unionism is more concerned with gaining supremacy that ensuring a peaceful resolution. I just hope nobody is badly injured or worse.
