IRA Decides To Give?

The Reverend Ian Paisley has tonight warned Republicans that any deal on the North where the IRA decommissions without photographs won't work.
If this is to be the policy of Sinn Fein and the IRA one wonders whether it will blow up in their faces(no pun intended).

It does leave Paisley in an awkward position if it goes ahead like this as Paisley will likely then snub the deal and as a result will have all the blame left at his feet.
It leaves the British government in an awkward position also as they will feel obliged to praise the development of decommissioning even if it doesn't offer Paisley the "transparency" he craves.
I question though if this is just a bluff by Sinn Fein and the IRA as it seems unlikely they will take actions such as these without knowing they are getting something in return.

Perhaps the IRA have gotten into the Christmas spirit and have discovered the gift of giving?
