I'd disagree and it might really offend Jihadi types but they ARE offensive by their mere existence, so I don't much care.
This is sick justification for wanton murder, is all it is. I've been watching this British thing and then the French attack, all the while with
rioting in another area of the Continent. It's not just baffling, it's outright stupid. This isn't fighting...it's just bloodletting for the pure
sake of it and nothing gained.
As much as I'm sure the feelings and passions are mixed about the Irish Republican Army and as much as their Provo wing made some Middle Eastern
types look like pansies.....as a whole? That was what fighting from a common man level, against a world power and within 100% urban/civilian settings
tends to look like. Things were messy and I recall some of it while reading about much more. It was also with a purpose and general shared goal. Not
killing people in the street like a B grade horror film.
Whatever side someone takes for the IRA and Irish troubles, it was a true fight ...not a simple, aimless bloodbath of criminal action and striking out
at whatever is nearby, as it seems to be with the North African and Muslim unrest building over there.
If they ever got their act organized, it is also worth noting, the Governments over there would be in terrible trouble overnight. Imagine a cause many
many times larger in manpower than the IRA with funding many many times what the Irish ever could have imagined. I DO hope Europe gets a handle on all
this, sooner than later.
