Me: I was in a pub one day when a man at the bar said the army should be running things. It was when Ireland seemed to be up the creek. I won’t say where it was, alright it was in Ballyfermot. I said that to my brother, he said dictatorship. But the army are too small, how could they control everything?
He: They haven’t got the brains.
Me: They had that in Greece, the colonels. And they have it in Burma. The army own everything and the people are treated like slaves. It would be like having the I.R.A. army council running things.
He: They will.
