    I find it strange when people find the term UK offensive.

    I can understand people getting pissed off when someone uses 'England' or 'English' when they're talking about Scotland/Wales/N.Ireland as well ... obviously it wouldn't go down too well standing in Cardiff or Edinburgh and declaring how much you love England and the English.

    (we don't all have a problem with that term).
    You are English. If you were a proud Scottish republican, Irish nationalist or Welsh seperatist, you would think differently.

    Do the Chechens freedom fighters like Russian rule?

    I hardly think they're comparable.

    In Ireland they are and in Wales there are the Meibion Glyndwr and the Scots have the SNLA.

    When it comes to acts of utter barbarism you need look no further than Derry on Bloody Sunday, the SAS in general (e.g. Loughgall), Belfast (e.g. the Shankill butchers and the pogroms), etc...
