    As I said, I make it a policy not to debate with sociopaths and crackpots. Your responding to my first comment with pathetic ad hominem attacks and cheap rhetorical tricks simply confirmed that there is no profit to be had in interacting with you and that you are entirely uninterested in genuine discussion.

    I also do not doubt that you rate your knowledge of the Troubles much greater than it is in reality. For example, I doubt you'd be able to answer if I asked you a simple question like what was the broader significance of the March 20 bombing.

    Thus there is little incentive for me to engage with someone who is sociopathically gleeful in justifying the murder of innocent Irish people, whose style of argumentation is little better than personal attacks and low rhetorical devices and whose actual knowledge of the Troubles is, at best, superficial and likely closer to hagiography than history.

    I would say good day, sir but you're obviously no gentleman. We're done.
    This just shows your clear intolerance for those with differing opinions to yours.

    Again, more spiteful and vicious hearsay. My actual knowledge of the Northern conflict would clearly be far greater than that of a young wiseacre.

    Again, my arguments have been full of information. You're just spouting rubbish to try and end this, which I admit is not much more interesting for me listening to some outsider trying to tell me what I do and don't know about a war that went on in my country.

    I have never said or even alluded to this. I mourn the death of every Irish person that died because it is a tragedy that the problems in the North were so irresponsibly let to escalate out of control. Armed republicanism would never had re-emerged if the system had not been so explicitly and intrinsically prejudiced against Catholic people and their basic rights.

    The people responsible for this - now known as fleggers in the North - are the same people who, in 2012, over the Union Flag being flown on only 13 designated days in line with every other UK city, made international pricks of themselves as they proceeded to wreck the ****ing place, claiming it was another erosion of a 'British' identity they perceive to have been under attack since the horrifying spectre of equality reared its head in the North of Ireland.

    The term 'fleggers' fittingly describes a section of humanity unconcerned with knowledge, reality or the vagaries of the English language. Like America's tea-baggers they are ruled by instinct, fear and paranoia with a side dish of rampant bigotry and startling ignorance of the world around them.

    I also do not doubt that you rate your knowledge of the Troubles much greater than it is in reality. For example, I doubt you'd be able to answer if I asked you a simple question like what was the broader significance of the March 20 bombing.
    Of course - I remember hearing about it on the news at home in Fermanagh. The second attack in Warrington was the worst as it killed two children, if I remember correctly, and injured about a dozen people?
    Everyone was horrified, it nearly caused a meltdown within the Republican movement and was another event that lost a lot of sympathisers. Some of my mother's family in Dublin were at a protest a couple of weeks later.

    Again, I lived through this. I know what happened. Some of my own family were injured in some of these attacks. I was nearly killed in the Omagh bombing, which has fuelled my hatred for dissidents. They refuse to conform to the times, unlike that of the INLA, who understand that there is no longer a need for armed struggle and are now committed to the political process.

    You have revealed yourself for EXACTLY what you are on this thread and others will have taken due note. How to destroy your own reputation on a public website in a handful of posts. You have done such a good job it would make a case study at Harvard.

    So I am almost done. The passage I quote above however reveals your culpable ignorance. This on your lifelong specialist subject. Maybe they didn't tell you the whole picture in your IRA Madrassa?

    The Warrington bombing unforgiveable and indefensible though it was, wasn't the worst outrage perpetrated by
    the Provos, on the mainland.

    Mr Sands' wonderful friends planted two bombs in busy pubs in central Birmingham in 1974. No warnings were given and 21 innocent people were killed and a further 182 were maimed for life.

    Innocent Irish people living in Britain were then wrongfully convicted and the murderous terrorist scum you admit you support allowed them to take the rap for their evil crime and rot in prison FOR 16 YEARS.

    That "cell" were no better than Islamic State in the recent Paris attacks. No moral difference at all.

    I feel dirty talking to you. So I won't any more. This will be my last post on the subject of your apologism for pure evil., if you reply I won't respond. .

    So you're going to be a fool and be completely intolerant of other's views, while pretending to take the higher ground and throwing in personal insults?
    Fine by me.

    One thing I'll point out:
    Innocent Irish people living in Britain were then wrongfully convicted and the murderous terrorist scum you admit you support allowed them to take the rap for their evil crime and rot in prison FOR 16 YEARS.
    My parents campaigned for the Guildford Four and Maguire Seven.
    When members of the same IRA ASU, the Balcombe Street ASU, were arrested they confessed that they had carried out the Guildford pub bombing, but the police ignored them and proceeded to continue covering it up.

    Will you admit that the British establishment did massive wrong in coercing and torturing these innocent Irish people into signing confessions, and then covering everything up and not convicting the IRA members who confessed to carrying it out?
