Hey Juicy Brucie, the IRA terrorists breathed the same air as the civilised population in Ireland.

Would that have justified England, if it could, extracting all air from Ireland in order to kill the terrorists?

Are your American policeman not trained to withold the use of firearms if bystanders would be jeopardised?

If Israel is entitled to hold any particular set of borders because it has held them under international law since 1967 or 1948 or whatever, then England was entitled to hold Ireland which it had lawfully ruled for over 300 years.

Let's have a bit of consistency here.
