I have Always wondered this question. The IRA says they were fighting for independence from British rule,but was that really the case? Maybe they just
wanted to have all the power and none of the responsibilities of being under the crown of England. Was it really so bad looking back in Hindsight as
to Murder civilians and act like a jihadist does today? Over 1,800 total deaths were accrued by them,with 620 or so civilians.
And all they did was send out a apology for all the deaths over the years. Why not trials and convictions? A apology dont bring back the dead Or give
the families satisfaction. The entire EX IRA needs to be locked up right along side of the people in guantonimo for their roles. Personally the IRA
could have went the peaceful way I think,but it was just too easy to kill people instead i guess. Please do not take offense to this posting or topic.
I was stating a opinion and Just want to hear all of your here on ATS.
Brother, I can assure you they were no freedom fighters
* they incinerated pensioners at La Mon
* they murdered protestant workmen at Kingsmills
* they murdered a baby and women in the Shankill chip shop bomb
Northern Ireland was not perfect pre 1969, and many working class Protestants were not exactly living in the lap of luxury, so these scumbag filth
merchants hijacked a "civil rights" campaign to conduct a poorly supported murder campaign over the border issue (of which most people in NI wished
to remain British)
The biggest killers of CATHOLICS during the troubles was the provos
I spit on the provos, I spit on the grave of their dead "freedom fighters" and I spit in the faces of their living members
SCUMBAGS TO A MAN/WOMAN!
