Totally agree. There is always a danger that with the passage of time people’s perceptions and experiences will be tempered. The IRA murdered and intimidated people. They sought to get their political aims by terrorising people and forcing politicians to give way to their demands.
Luckily, the British politicians won and the rest is history.
There were also Loyalist terrorists.
Freedom fighters = just people wanting to re-write history and excuse the atrocities of the IRA.
Terrorism did not start with 9/11, although sadly some victims may well have given a few dollars to NORAID. Some people on these Boards seem to thing Gadaffi was a charming chap without appreciating he activaly supported the IRA terrorists.

Would you call the French Resistance in WW2 terrorists also? How about the Palestinians now?

Dared to fight an occupation??? Lol
We did not "occupy" until 1968 when Northern Irish PROTESTANTS were engaged in a capaign of almost apartheid type behaviour towards the Catholic population...
We were initially there to PROTECT the catholics!
They actually thanked us for being there! Then they turned on us..
Irish communist political ideology born in Queens university via that whole 60's liberal revolutionist agenda that was popular in universities... Marxism...
They bit the hand that protected them..
