The people in Ireland are getting on with their lives and trying to solve their problems militarily is a bad idea. But luckily, it seems to have calmed down in these last few years. But I think there is a problem with these protestants because they decide to march every year to celeberate a victory over the irish and thats just like rubbing their face in it. I would be pissed off if I was there also.
Actually, I have some history in the IRA. My great grandfather was a member of the IRA or some kind of republican political thing. During the parade which I was refering to, he actually jumped through one of the protestant's bass drums and he was subsequently deported from Ireland.
The Israelis pulled out of the Gaza strip in the interest of peace. The Palestinian leadership and the Iranian leadership declared to the world that this was an "Islamic victory against the zionistic nation" and that their pull out was merely an "act of desperation and defeat."
The Protestants in Ireland are equally wrong and counter productive with their marches.
