They were as cowardly as the British Army firing at unarmed civilians in the North and colluding in the Bombings in the south.
One mans terrorist is another's freedom fighter.
Just because a government states that their violence is legal and the other mans violence is not doesn't make the so called legit violence any easier for the people on the receiving side.

Hell yeah IRA! I know they are some bamofo's, but i am full blooded irish, and i have some cousins still in the IRA, and past uncles who where also in the IRA. The reason i love the IRA is because they don't give empty threats, they do what they say, and mean what they do. Something the world should adapt. Instead we have everyone screaming in every direction, and it never happens. Well, here is the wolf.

I'm not up on my NI conflict history. I'm interested to learn why the British army were targetting unarmed civilians. I understand they have strict ROE to follow and I would love to know what provoked such a barbaric attack?
Security forces are still hunting for a Real IRA bomb after intelligence reports that a device was smuggled across the border. They are investigating whether the device was destined for an Irish Sea ferry. This line of inquiry is linked to a security operation around the Duncrue industrial estate dockland area of Belfast on Monday.
All cars, vans and lorries entering the estate, which includes two docking bays for ferries to Scotland and England, were stopped by armed police and searched throughout Monday afternoon and evening, security sources said.
