A bunch of cunts.



The fact that the British were historically a bunch of cunts to the Irish (actually, the British mostly just economically benefited from the Irish upper class being a bunch of cunts to their fellow Irishmen) doesn't make the IRA be something other than a pack of murderous marxist jackals.

As opposed to the jihadi Taliban scum AMERICAN tax dollars funded in the mid 80s? Which was about the same time we were supplying weapons to our good friends in Iran and intelligence to Saddam? Which was about the same time we were funding Salvadoran death squads....

I don't know much about the political side of it but back in the 90's I used to hang out with a guy who was supposed to be involved in it and would come over to Boston for a while when things were too hot there. Had some crazy stories and brought me some cool shirts. The ex stole the shirts when she drug her wore out ass back to Boston  - for the shirts not her

Total casualties attributed to the IRA -approximately 1100 of which were police or military,  were less than 2000 over about 3 decades. Not exactly a "blood in the streets" insurgency in modern terms.

A weekend in Chicago is more dangerous than one in Ulster ever was.

Just because other groups have been more violent and their victim list isn't relatively high doesn't take away from the fact that they bombed innocents. Discussion of violence in Chicago, Libya, Fallujah, etc. is irrelevant.

And we dropped firebombs on Dresden.

They call it war for a reason.

Things are not irrelevant because they dont fit into our arguments nicely.

Terrorists, who are still being terrorists today.  You see their handiwork show up in IEDs found in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and similar.

They are directly affiliated with Islamic terror groups and have the blood of US soldiers on their hands.  

Fuck them.

A lot of the Politics behind the various IRA factions were commies. The main political party (Sinn Féin) has its roots in the Irish Communist Party.

Mostly it was a bunch of commies and socialists mixing religious conflicts and geo-political issues.

Absolutely not but it's pretty fucking disingenuous to say, "We funded the Taliban, organized them, trained them and they made 9/11 possible but THEY WERE OUR TERRORISTS THEN, so it was ok". You don't get to say, "We sent millions to death squads in El Salvador but tisk, tisk, you shouldn't fund terrorism by sending money to the IRA".....Context DOES MATTER and it's NOT irrelevant.

When you start talking about modern nation states and groups, NOBODY has clean hands and you account ALL of it or NONE of it. In that context, I'm not blaming the IRA for killing 600 civilians over nearly 30 years of war, some of whom were Government officials, Militia members etc.....
