Well some things have died down, and for the best, although there is still some secterian activity from both sides of the divide. We saw the other
week the Linfield fans ruthlessley attacking a Catholic who was waiting for his wife whilst shopping, and had his throat cut or stabbed in the throat
depending on the sources, and he is still critical in hospital. It shows that there are still loads of bigots out there.
I can remember when the brits were on patrol here, they went down my street once, and you know as a young kid you don't have a care in the world,
well anyways, i started talking and they were friendly to me as i can remember and they showed me their gun haha, crazy childhood memories haha, but
on a more serious note, I was present for a good load of the holy cross dispute, where the catholic primary school for children up to 12 years of age
were subjected to horrendus abuse because of their school and religion and also the riots which ensued.
As far as i can remember from the newspapers, the brits did say that they diddnt defeat the IRA, so yes they can learn lots from this, maybe by using
tactics, frankly i dont know and i couldnt care less about what the brits do to be honest because they wont be round here anytime soon with the new
Of course i do have a bad view because I have read that many of the british army were linked with paramilitaries although i know that not all of them
