    Re: Irish republicans try to blow up Belfast police building

    I believe and support Irish nationalism, but i don't believe in the violence (especially at this point in time, now that the IRA has given up it's weaponry).

    My quote from Bobby Sands (Our Revenge will be the laughter of our children) is the most durable and excellent weapon against any sort of opposition (especially if they wish not to recognize your nationality). If you have children and you teach your children your way of life, then it's absolutely destroying the very fabric of the opposition.

    In the case of the eradication of an entire nationality, living life and raising yours and keeping yours will compete with all odds.

    [QUOTE=EpicDude86;058384142]it's the fault of the invaders for staying. They should have gone back to their own island. What is in Ireland that they don't have or can't get easily enough in Britain/Scotland/Wales? Nothing. /QUOTE]

    Well their homes for one thing. Again these people have lived here for longer then the United States has existed. They have a different culture from the English or the Scottish and constitute a nation with a right to national self determination. You cant just order an entire nation to up sticks and leave, its barbaric. If the Native Americans in the U.S started a bombing campaign would you demand that white Americans go back to *their continent?* Maybe we should demand that all those dam Anglo-Saxons piss off back to Saxony.

    You probably won't get an argument from the Irish against that proposal.

    Just sayin'.

    Well... you can. It just doesn't make for pretty press.

    Re: Irish republicans try to blow up Belfast police building

    So let me get this right..

    Because it is Northern Ireland, and Christians, then attempting to blow up the police or anyone is some what okay because the struggle against British oppression is a valid one.. they are after all freedom fighters..

    But when it is in Iraq and Muslims and the target is US troops then people fighting oppression and occupation are terrorists when they do the same thing?

    No hypocrisy here ..

    If people in Northern Ireland want to live under Irish rule rather than British rule.. MOVE!.. They are both in the EU so nothing is preventing them moving to Ireland.

    Then there's the fact that they are just as Irish as the Irish to the south.
