Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wilson's troop decision one of riskiest in Ulster's history British soldier guards gas station LONDON Prime Minister Harold Wilson's order to British troops to take over fuel depots in Northern Ireland on Monday was one of the riskiest decisions by any British leader in the 53 years of Ulster's often-violent history. Army leaders were reported wary of using troops to try to break the Protestant political which is aimed at undermining power-sharing between Protestants and Roman Catholics and proposals for forging links with the predominantly-Roman Catholic Irish republic to the south. The three days of high-level consultation that preceded the order to the troops indicated the cabinet decision was not taken without considerable heart-searching. At it leaves the armed forces with the daunting task of maintaining essential services for the people of Northern Ireland if the few remaining workers in key in- dustries heed the strike leaders' call to refuse all co- operation. At in a tinder-dry situation after two weeks of the paralysing there is a risk of bringing British soldiers into armed conflict with the Ulster's one million the majority community whose para-military organizations are known to be well armed. The gunmen and bombers of the Roman Catholic-based Irish Republican Army have been dormant since the strike but the troops fear a nightmare situation of being fired on by both sides of the sectarian divide. So the strikers' resistance has been non- violent. The decision to act was made almost inevitable when the Ulster Workers' which is running the refused to back down Saturday night when Wilson underlined in a broadcast that the British government would meet its obligations to maintain essential services. The cabinet here was reported also not willing to tolerate much longer a situation in which Protestant groups were usurping the functions of an elected controlling distribution of gasoline by issuing coupons and telling shop- keepers when they should close or open. The scales were finally tipped in favor of army intervention by signs during the weekend that failure to meet the Protestant challenge would mean the collapse of the power-sharing Northern Ireland executive. The in which Roman Catholic moderates share power with Protestants under the leadership of Chief Minister Brian was coaxed into existence only five months largely through the efforts of William Whitelaw of the previous British Conservative government. The strikers are demanding fresh Ulster elections which would almost certainly sweep away Faulkner and his power- sharing with the Roman Catholics and links with the republic.
