You know, I hear this a lot from the Brits about Northern Ireland, so let's get a few things straight.
"America" did not give any support to the IRA, SOME misguided americans did contribute funds and guns via Noraid and its ilk, but there was no
national sponsorship or agenda.
And while we are on the subject, no Americans actually took part in the killing of any British soldiers, at least none that were ever caught, but can
you say the same about people like Richard Reid, a Brit who tried to murder hundreds of Americans of a plane - should we then say that the UK supports
terrorist actions against the US - no of course not, and even as I type this, the UK is allowing its muslim population to sell anti-american videos
and take up collections for the "freedom fighters" in Afghanistan - can we complain like you do yet?
As for Northern Ireland, study your own history. If you think that Bloody Sunday was the only UK committed atrocity against the Irish people, think
again. You have been persecuting the Irish for generations, all the way back to the potato famine which killed countless thousands.
So you'll forgive me if I puke a little bit every time I hear a Brit lecturing the Israelis on their inhumane treatment of the Palestinians.
