Keith. As the problems in Northern Ireland seem to be over is there any real point in bringing the events in this troubled part of the UK up again and again ?
We have all read the statistics many times and it isn't a score card. These were human lives.
Circumstances of each death and known affiliations to paramilitary groups or the police force or British army should remain as a reminder to us all I agree, but please allow all hostile threads concerning Northern Ireland here to die gracefully.
I am not in anyway inferring you are starting these threads Keith, but we could set by example a new beginning of friendship, reconciliation and understanding by not regurgitating such horrible events again and again here on this site.
I would dearly love to see all of the regular contributors here begin a thread and contribute to conflict resolution and look at the future over there and see what all of you with your knowledge and experience could offer instead of reflecting on the past.
