One of the frightening truths that people miss is the Governments willingness to use underhand and dirty tactics to deal with political dissent.
SFIRA's greatest weapon at this point in time is the peace process, a relentless concession meter to allow them to continue their advance using new tactics and using the 'process' that the Belfast Agreement granted them, with the aim of eradicating Britishness piece by peace.
It is essential for them that the 'process' remains on track.
Let's remember who SFIRA are, they are people who were prepared to starve themselves to death to rid the British identity and presence from N.Ireland.
Are we meant to believe that this will has suddenly been broken and they now want to reconcile, tolerate and build peace?
They are the same SFIRA they always have been and always will be.
If the concession meter stopped being fed tomorrow, the 'process' would no longer benefit them, they would face a decision to either surrender their cause or go back to war. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to work out that people who have sacrificed so much for their goals would be rather unlikely to just roll over.
Martin McGuinnes and the SFIRA leadership has recently taken to labelling any dissenters or objectors to the 'process' as extremists. His hidden language is clear, he is sending signals to the British, Irish and American Governments to encourage them to remove these 'extremists' to protect the internationally backed 'process'.
The PSNI and Security force agencies are currently waging a war of attrition against loyalist dissenters and those who oppose the 'process'. They attempt to criminalise political dissent, this strategy has been clear through the activities of the PSNI DULCET team. The criminalisation strategy has failed to break the spirits of those opposed to further concessions that are required to 'protect the process'.
So what next?
Harassment, intimidation, threats and a general war of attrition is the latest tactic to try and break the spirit of the Protestant people.
SFIRA's language is clear, they want the 'extremists' removed so as to allow the DUP to continue on within the 'process'.
The worrying thing is, what comes next? Should the 'war of attrition' fail to break the spirit of us so called political 'extremists', that McGuinness says are pulling the strings and acting as strong resistance to the 'process', then what is the next step?
Be in no doubt that the Government will seek to set up, criminalise and if need be totally remove any obstacles to the continuation of the peace 'process'.
For the process to continue it requires the concession meter to be fed, if you resist this you are an 'extremist'.
Once you are an 'extremist' you are an obstacle to the 'process'.
It then begs the question, just how far would the kind of men that don't exist go to preserve an internationally backed agreement?
