DURST: The "Real" IRA

The splinter group of the IRA claiming responsibility for the most recent bombing in Northern Ireland calls itself the Real IRA and just declared a truce to its terror campaign. Similar to the truce called earlier by the original IRA. Of course what's going to happen now is a splinter group of the splinter group will emerge calling itself the Realest IRA.
