Epona BS: British Collusion. The North of Ireland. (176* d) RE: BS: British Collusion. The North of Ireland. 22 Dec 06


Just in, wanted to say hello! Long time, no chat....I knew I would find a thread on here about Ireland. Now, as I interject here, I am conscious of stepping into another debate between several names I know rather well. But I feel I have to say this. I don't remember reading the part where Divis said he was "proud of the killing." I am a speed reader though and admit I may have missed that. That being said, I can completely understand feeling sorry for deaths, but proud of your soldiers. I don't understand how you cannot be proud of men and women who are willing to sacrifice themselves to promote and protect your freedom. And I'm not talking about glorifying torture or abuse. I am talking about proudly supporting people that, by the very essence of them volunteering for a soldier's position, is making the statement that he or she is willing to give their life for yours. That is the ultimate sacrifice, one that many play lipservice to, but never find the courage to embrace.

Just a side note: I got my copy of Lost Lives! What a reference this book is!
