There is no doubt that some members of the pIRA most definitely engaged in terrorism, but it was not a universal tactic employed by every member of the pIRA.
So your claiming some member of the P.I.R.A acted independantly? I think thats highly unlikely given how the P.I.R.A enforced such a ridgid system of discipline over there members [Not to mention the catholic community as a whole]. Though i except that they had *very* legitimate grevences ild dispute that the P.I.R.A were fighting for freedom when they were fighting against what the vast majority of people in NI wanted. The whole reason Northern Ireland was created in the first place was that most of those living there didnt want to be part of Eire. How was fighting against their wishes fighting for freedom?
