John Clark - The SAS would love to take these guys down, but Downing Street's pushing European unity this week so we got the nod instead. Make it clean and quick. If we botch this one, it'll set the Irish peace process back ten years.

Randolph Crane - NOMAR is one of the last and most vicious of the IRA splinters. They're tough, and they're professional, and they know what to expect from fellows like you. They won't make mistakes, so you can't afford to either. We've got a real chance to build a lasting peace in the British Isles and we can't let a pack of mad dogs destroy it.

LONDON, ENGLAND (United News International) - One of the United Kingdom's worst fears was realized today when an Irish terrorist group stormed the Houses of Parliament taking two visiting dignitaries hostage. After a brief exchange of gunfire the terrorists retreated to the Westminster clock tower, known popularly as Big Ben, where they were finally subdued in a hail of bullets by a police hostage rescue unit.

Authorities said the attacks was organized by the National Organization of Military Armed Resistance or NOMAR. The attackers were heavily armed and according to some reports had planted an explosive device within the clock tower that they had threatened to detonate were their demands not met. Further arrests are expected to follow.
