Ireland BS: True IRA ?? Who are they ? (141* d) RE: BS: True IRA ?? Who are they ? 14 Mar 09


I thought the questions raised by the answer to the original question by Skarpi,who is, if memory serves reasonably educated in Irish affairs,no I am not having a pop at Skarpi.

When answers to such a question are obviously biased does it really bode skarpi well for others to just agree and let it go?

On hind sight yes, it only gives poop stirrers a platform to spout their untruths and gives them credence rather than ridiculed for what they are doing.

WRT Skarpi what sort of answer did you want?

The guy that was arrested for being a suspect in the soldiers murders is well know, I have known of him from his days as a teenager,he is an ex IRA man that disagreed with the PIRA and SF stance of peace.

Remember the RIR homecoing parade in Belfast:

Now here is where people get confused,if the dissidents are not wanted, why would they be welcome to join in and supervise rep/nat marches?

This man marshalled protesters against the RIR homecoming parade, he stood side by side with ex IRA leaders and SF members, no real show of dissociation between the groups there.

Given these facts it is a blessing that we have had the response to the murders by both extremes in our society, wrt nat\rep and union\loyalist "ex" terror groups.

There are no simple answers to questions about Irish politics.
