I served in Northern Ireland with the Army in the middle of the 70's when it was still in quite a foment (when hasn't it been), what I've got for you
is firstly a point of hearsay.
I dated a woman who lived on the Protestant side of the Shankhill Road. A main road divided by a corrugated fence down either side to keep the two
factions apart. She swore to me that many a time they would cross over sides to hurl bottles and stones to inflame the situation. At least one time at
the behest of the news, in her instance the BBC. Not the first time such stories have arisen. That's just an old sweats tale.
However if credence can be given to such 'eye witness' testimony and news outlets were complicit in what on ATS might well be called false flag
operations. Then at what level do you think your own government could be complicit. I could say more but I am bound for life by the Official Secrets
Set in context the world had, at that time, many 'squabbles' and President Bush hadn't made his, to paraphrase "if you're not with us you're against
us" diatribe. Which of course sets the whole world on the false dichotomy set by the Abrahamic Middle East. They wish this of course to destroy the
notion that anything else other than momotheism can survive. It serves both sides.
America at that time was only partially down that road, so came to a compromise. Which when such compromise existed was one of the better parts of
America. So as far as the law goes they are in the clear. Here I quote in part from wikipedia.
Noraid or the Irish Northern Aid Committee is an Irish American fund raising organization founded after the start of the Troubles in Northern Ireland
in 1969. The organisation's mission statement declares that:
Irish Northern Aid is an American based membership organization that supports through peaceful means, the establishment of a democratic 32-county
Ireland. Our Strategy: To develop a broad coalition of supporters for Irish Unity through organizing and educating the public, our members, political
leaders, and the media. To support the current Peace Process, including the full implementation of the Good Friday Agreement which was endorsed by the
vast majority of the Irish people. To support a process of National reconciliation and equality for all the citizens of Ireland. Membership: In
keeping with the principles of the 1916 Proclamation, Irish Northern Aid is open to anyone who shares these values.
Unionist politicians and the British, Irish and United States governments have accused Noraid of being a front for the Provisional Irish Republican
Army (IRA), involved in fund raising for IRA arms importation from North America since the early 1970s. This accusation has always been
denied by Noraid. Noraid's former leader, Martin Galvin, was banned from the United Kingdom in the 1980s.
In May 1981, the U.S. Department of Justice won a court case forcing Noraid to register the Provisional Irish Republican Army as its "foreign
principal", under the Foreign Agents Registration Act 1938. A compromise was reached which allowed Noraid to include a written disclaimer against the
court ruling stating the document had been signed under force and that Noraid maintained that the IRA was not its "foreign principal". Federal
attorneys agreed to this, and Noraid resumed filing its financial returns in July 1984.
The group was supportive of the peace process and the subsequent Good Friday Agreement. It is nowadays highly supportive of Sinn Fein.
So in one sense your argument is invalid. However you're on a conspiracy site and when we look at it there's no way you could take the American
government to International courts for reparation. However how complicit the American people are in their own, and by extension the whole world's
downfall is a question only they can answer.
