Subject: RE: BS: Grit your teeth, the PIRA boys are out
Lena, I would caution you not to depend entirely upon forums like this one to fill in your gaps. Most of us, on things politic, are very partisan and though I'm sure most of us try to be objective, it is difficult to do. The suggestion above is a good one. Get ahold of a couple of books that present both sides and read them. It is a very complicated problem and I, as an American, have gone out of my way not to post to Threads about the "Troubles" in Ireland. Although I am of Irish/Scotch decent, I am not well enough informed to contribute. I do read the Threads on the "Troubles" though. DougR
