Thread Name: BS: Grit your teeth, the PIRA boys are out
Subject: RE: BS: Grit your teeth, the PIRA boys are out
Hey!, what's going on here?. Grit your teeth okay. I thought this was a forum for discussing folk and blues, not a propaganda channel for a bunch of self-elected so- called "freedom fighters". After 30 years of a glorious campaign of blowing up shopping centres (centers) along with any innocent civilians who happened to get in the way, the PIRA now wish to be considered "war heroes" and not "terrorists". Some of the so-called Republican prisoners mentioned above who are now demanding to be released under the terms of the Good Friday agreement murdered a member of the Gárda Síochána (the Irish police force) in cold blood during an attempted armed raid. I didn't visit this site to become embroiled in a discussion of the "troubles" but I feel a little balance has to be injected into this matter. The PIRA never got more than a miniscule amount of support in the south of Ireland and caused widespread outrage by their repeated atrocities carried out in the name of Ireland. Posted by a Fíor Gael.
