Divis Sweeney BS: Soldiers Convicted of Crimes in NI (242* d) RE: BS: Soldiers Convicted of Crimes in NI 18 Dec 06

Another member started this thread as your aware. I arrived on it and gave an actual first hand account of an experience I had with a foot patrol in which I was robbed by them. Considering the title of the thread I felt my experience had some bearing. Keith refers to this post of mine as part of the drift.

My experience was not a one off incident, no point explaining the others, I will only get the rough end of the stick driven up my arse again for saying something against the British army.

If someone arrived here on a thread about the terrible events of September the 11th 2001 in America and they had been caught up in it I would imagine their first hand input would be welcomed.

The fact that I lived through the period which that has become known as "the troubles" and can relate incidents at first hand appears to be a problem to the gang on this site.

I get the usual remarks that I am anti British army and anti British government. What the f... do you expect to get from me ?
That they are a fine bunch of lads and that I have no right to want unity for my country ? Sorry I have been on the receiving end of too much for that. What is in my heart will always be there.

You are all aware I am a republican and supported the Provisional IRA.
Does this exclude me from debate ? Two members here seem to want me to personaly answer for every action the PIRA carried out between 1969 and 2005.

I support the leadership and the search for peace in Ireland, would you prefer I went the other route and said no to everything, just blow the bastards out of Ireland ? Sorry don't expect that from me.

I am who I am and if anyone has a problem with that, they are the one with the problem. Hope those who don't know who I am now have a better insight.

Peace to all over Christmas
