I get annoyed when people refer to the terrorist (both sides)attacks in N.Ireland as a war, but I get over it and put it down to ignorance.
A year on from Sept.11 an article refers to : FIVE members of the new Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) were told they were not welcome at the Irish community Mass in honor of September 11 victims on Tuesday evening, September 10. A volunteer approached the five members of the PSNI outside the Holy Trinity church on West 82nd Street in Manhattan and told them they were not welcome.
Considering the British have stood beside America with the "War on Terrorism", the fire, police offiers gave their full support and help are now not welcome what is going on? Are Americans to be considered our friends or users and abusers?
When all terrorism is crushed then we in Ireland can get back to a normal society, and only then can our political objectives be met, in a free and democratic manner enjoyed by Americans which at present the British Armed forces are putting their lives on the line to maintain. Fortunately the PSNI officers were invited in by the Irish Consulate, is this the freedom to be maintained and held up as an example to the world. The freedom to deny the right to worship.
