It would be very interesting to compile a list of the Provo leadership's
lines in the sand since this whole process began and see how each new
line in the sand has been crossed and the line redrawn and then that one
crossed as well.

The sooner they cross all the lines the better.  Some of their own will
still be in denial, but at least it will be clear to everyone who really
wants to struggle for a free, socialist Ireland what the score is.
