    Still trying to make a argument huh?

    When will the UK make reparations for the resources they stole from almost 200 countries, while invading like around 175 of of them.

    How many countries does the USA give assistance to? Care to answer this?

    Get back to me when the US approaches that 200 country colonization mark.

    They weren’t terrorists in 9/11. They were freedom fighters responding to American aggression in the Middle East?

    Got to a point I couldn't tell which side. Not for nothing however does Nick Griffin and his old BNP have a lot of support in Northern Ireland. They could always get a large crowd when they went to speak.

    Remind me how your country was built? You're on a slippery slope if you start arguing about reparations.

    Stop whining about the Irish if you cannot handle the truth.

    You and your cohort started playing the "whataboutism" game in which I am quite obliged to point out.

    You pointed out nothing we didn't know already, but failed to look in the mirror until it was pointed out for you. So who is doing the whining exactly?

    former British soldier faces murder charges over the killing of two people on Bloody Sunday in Londonderry in 1972.

    The Public Prosecution Service said there was enough evidence to prosecute Soldier F for the murders of James Wray and William McKinney.

    The sole prosecution is seen as a "terrible disappointment" by some of the families of the 13 people killed.




    Obviously a very sensitive subject in Ireland and the UK, I am really torn on this if I'm honest. Whilst I recongnise the families wanting justice for what they see as murder I do also see it as a bit of a double standard. Numerous IRA prisoners and wanted IRA members were allowed to walk away scott free after the good Friday agreement. You have had and still have ex IRA members in positions of political power in Northern Ireland and yet you want to open old wounds by charging one man for something that happened in a war zone essentially.
    I would say the difference is that this was done by government troops in full view of the public. It's also the biggest single massacre of unarmed civilians during that conflict, AFAIK.

    The US is a big place, and many of our citizens havent been overseas or simply see distant events through filtered lenses and identify foreign causes simply through group association. Of course 9/11 did make people more aware of terrorism, but there is still tremendous ignorance with regards to how people overseas live and their politics.

    The problem is that 9/11 did not make people aware of who the real terrorists are, so we live in this dismal world where western countries have since that time terrorized the peoples of many lands, mostly Muslim lands. All based on western lies.

    Pointing fingers at the UK for actions that the USA has done in spades is really over the top.
