You enlisted in a foreign army occupying part of your country, you can use any excuse you like to salve your conscience, you should hang your in shame.I normally ignore you because you're a pig-ignorant Gob-shyte and an utter A-hole who's contributed nothing original or interesting to this site in at least ten years, but you're a liar as well as we can see, so for the benefit of newer readers I'll respond.
For the record I have said no such thing. I am a Dubliner but I didn't join the British Army specifically to assist in the suppression of terrorism in Northern Ireland, that was just a perk of the job and something I was pleased and proud to do. The fact that you have to lie about this tell us all we need to know about you.
The various republican terrorist groups (who brought nothing but shame to the name of Ireland) carrying out murders and other atrocities in NI over the full 35 years or so of the Troubles were all illegal in the Irish Republic and none of them recognised the state or it's government and were on occasion happy to murder Irish policemen and soldiers, rob banks and murder and kidnap Irish and other citizens. Talk of me being a traitor to the Irish Republic or anything else is obviously nonsense, like the vast majority of the Irish Population I owed no allegiance to republican terrorism or the pointless "armed struggle" and as a British soldier have never lifted a hand against the RoI not have I ever known or heard of one who has.
Incidentally, I've been a British subject since 1975, I live in the UK and neither feel nor owe any allegiance to anywhere else, I wish Ireland well of course, but it's not my country any more.
Yeah, you've been repeating this dreary, un-original schtick for years now, though you've given your weird obsession with Dorset Street a rest this once I see. Frankly I couldn't give a toss if you believe me or not, the views of some mouthy ignoramous and Pub-patriot, posting from as far away from Ireland as it's reasonably possible to get are of no interest to me.
You speak of attrocities carried out by Republicans, you joined an army that slaughtered millions all over the world, you are nothing bu a hypocritical treacherous lying scumbag.
