Brit soldiers involved in the Ballymurphy massacre put money in a kitty for the soldier who killed the most

Don't see this being headlined in the mainstream media? They're going on about Gerry Adams saying he wasn't in the IRA again but not highlighting the above behaviour.

Don't see a thread about it here either? Sergeant Mitty and other trolls on here will be along to deflect from it no doubt.

Maybe if you made the OP fact rather than a Twitter feed, people might take you seriously.
A bit like Gerry denying he was in the RA and they didn't fire shots at the Army in Ballymurphy.

Here's another article on the same story. The point I'm making is that the mainstream media appear to have not picked up on this story of despicable disgusting behaviour by scum Brit soldiers.

Irrespective of the source, the story is fundamentally true.
Henry Gow is a trained barrister, a former soldier, SAS member, and policeman.
He claimed that soldiers ran sweepstakes on who would shoot a gunman first.

Same experience Marcella, as a matter of fact, it's quite frustrating searching for items the Brits/DUP prefer to keep hidden, ie the Ogle loyalist paramilitary murder was mainly ignored, the previous in Bangor and Carrickfergus hardly got a mention,....... even on here, plus the countless racist attacks in loyalist areas and the statement by the PSNI saying publicly that loyalist areas are awash with drugs and racketeering by loyalist paramilitaries, who, don't forget, have links to the DUP.

Pathetic IMO.

Well , nobody would have won as according to Gerry et al, the IRA fired no shots
This is a discussion about the killing of innocent people in Ballymurphy in 1971, and you think it's a laughing matter. Shame on you. It is a dreadful reflection on your humanity.

Absolutely sir and one of the main reasons I don't take he or his ilk seriously when they address the tragic loss of life which occurred in the sick counties.

Save your crocodile tears.
Both you and I know the RA and Gerry were active in Ballymurphy at the time. Innocent people were killed but it was a battle between 2 factions. If there hadn't been gun battles and riots, it wouldn't have happened.

The IRA were active obviously, and there were three factions involved, not two, which is so well known that I shouldn't need to correct you.
However your flippancy about innocent deaths displays an utter disregard for the feelings of the living relatives of those innocents who perished.
From time to time DOG, your total indifference, and indeed outright contempt for the feelings of innocent Catholics scarred by violence during the Troubles shines a light on your Orange soul. It is a very ugly, sectarian vista.

Any comment on the Paras digging up the grave of an innocent man they killed to use his skull as an ashtray?

Indeed sir, their Chiefs of Staff and politicians actually make it worse by publicly stating their forces acted with restraint and dignity in the six counties.

You really could not make up these scumbags.

This thread is about Brit soldiers behaving like scum, what's Gerry Adams and that sex abuse case got to do with that? There's plenty of threads about Gerry Adams and that case or you could start another one, why are you bringing that up on this thread?

The Paras behaved terribly in Belfast and Ballymurphy. No questions about it. And this behaviour should give food for thought for all the people North and South who tend to put UK soldiers on a "pedestal".
That said this behaviour is not abnormal for Soldiers. I know that in South Vietnam, during the war there, US soldiers took ears off the dead Viet Cong as souvenirs, got extra holidays for VC/NVA kills. The way to win according to the US Military was to have a high "body count".
If a US soldier killed an NVA or VC he got an extra 2 days leave usually. VC when captured were regularily taken up into helicopters and more often than not- dropped if they did not talk.
Also US soldiers sometimes went through their dead Marine/Army comrades pockets after combat and took their wallets. Sometimes. Finally when the war started to wind down, some US soldiers took the law into their own hands, and shot or fragged their superior officers. If they had a grudge against them.
War is hell!
