Yes I agree that we should all learn from history. But we are kidding ouselves if we try to deny that the history of dicrimination against Catholics ever took place. And that discrimination was disgracefull upheld by "the British forces of Law and Order".

The brutal beatings by the police at Burntollet Bridge of unarmned civilians who took part in a peaceful protest march, was captured on TV. The Civil Rights objective was partially successful - only because people stood up and fought. And that is the way all over the world - people have to fight for their rights before they eventually get them.

The partiality of the British Government during these times has been indicted by the European Commission on Human Rights. Political correctness shoud never come in the way of truth. And in that truth the condemnation of atrocities against civilians by the IRA must also be acknowledged.

It is only when we recognise and accept the above as historical fact that we can move on and proceed to a permanent resolution.
