I don't know much about Sein Fein but I do know a provacative
thread when I see one.
With all the "Troubles" that have gone on for years, how can a thread like this be helpful in any way? It seems like partisan sabre rattling.
A classical definition today of fascism indicates a dictatorship that is backed by a corporatocracy. Moussolini's regime would be one example. Hitler had Krupp and I. B. Farben to make munitions and gas chambers.
it seems to me that what we are experiencing now in the US is a lot closer than what's going on with Sein Fein. I see SF as a resistance movement not unlike those found in South America or you could interpret that as including Iraqi citizens who don't want an Occupier in their land.
I don't see corporate backing for SF. I see partisan statements being made and this has to be attributed to years of conflct by the "Troubles".
I see the British as having a history of occupation in Ireland as having a bearing.on this thread.
One of my favorite songwriters is Tommy Sands who has expressed the humanity of the toll of this terrible war through his song, "There Were Roses" and "Love Will Come Again".
I really pray that these "Troubles" can be eliminated and that justice can prevail for both sides....as I do for Israel and Palestine and the fundamental Christian and Muslim world.
Many countries in the world did not perceive Hitler to be the threatrening gangster that he was. It took time to realize that there could actually be someone like him. I can't see that the SF today would have any truck with Nazism.
I hope we can have peace in Ireland, Iraq, Mid-East, Darfour, Rwanda, the Balkins and yes even in the US. ( We have a culture war going on here at present.)
