    I think a large portion of Northern Ireland would disagree

    The absurd campaign for a united Ireland | Christopher McGimpsey | Comment is free | guardian.co.uk

    "The problem that Adams has with his quest for a united Ireland is that he has no conception as to why over 1,000,000 Irishmen and Irishwomen would wish to remain within the United Kingdom. He seems to view us simply as errant brothers and sisters who can be easily persuaded to see the errors of our ways. Apart from being insulting, this is also dangerous."

    It's the blowing up of buildings thing that gets them the terrorist label, not their cause.

    I think you're being sarcastic, but it doesn't much matter. Your comment says alot either way.

    So the fact that the majority of both communities on both sides of the border voted in favor of the current constitutional set up (see good Friday agreement) doesn't factor into this discussion then? How can these people be liberators when they are fighting against what the majority of people in the province want?

    The British need to give back N. Ireland. Plain and simple. They wouldn't be blowing **** up if they had just given them the SIX counties. I mean, it's not even attached to their island.


    It saddens me to see that their are still 'snakes' in Ireland.

    They must be "freedom fighters" then, since Christians cant be terrorists and have never committed such acts..








    and for those that cant understand sarcasm, yes this was sarcasm ...
    You can bet your boots that if they were killing Muslims, vice other Christians, they would be terrorists.

    No, that's not sarcasm.

    I'm sure if Ireland had their island back, there wouldn't be any problems.

    They blow up and kill innocent people. They are terrorists and the way they fight is cowardly and barbaric. They are fighting a movement that has no support. Good going on you though, for congratulating the terrorists who have the blood of innocent women and children on their hands.

    I see what you mean. The Falkland war was just pointless. No wonder we refer to you guys as our "cousins", there's definetly a shared bond between us because we opened a pointless war for the sake of flexing our muscles and showing everybody in the region who's daddy for no real purpose at all. But that dont give you an excuse to be a terrorist apologist.
