I wholeheartedly agree.

Although I wonder how they came up with a number of 30,000 to 40,000, talking about kids who lost parents.

>>Meanwhile, a prmary source of funding for the IRA is private Irish citizens.<<

Uh, the primary source for IRA funding is private citizens of the UNITED STATES, particularly those related (directly or indirectly) to the Kennedy legacy - including the Clintons.

Wrong. The US funding is high profile but lags the contributions from the ROI itself.

Selfish. Hypocritical. Terrorist-supporting. Ireland.

Don't label an entire people. It isn't right when people do it to the US and it isn't right here.

It is one of life's little ironies that the Northern Ireland situation can be summarised as the British desperately trying to find a secret way to give Northern Ireland to the Republic, and the Republic secretly doing everything they can to stop them, because of the cost of stopping the communities killing each other.

The vast majority of Irish people are appalled by the IRA, just as the vast majority of Americans are.
