Well, whaddya make of this?

Bloody Sunday: Ex-Official IRA members may be prosecuted - BBC News

I'm torn between schadenfreude at the most obnoxious collection of Quislings ever to deface the history of Ireland getting their comeuppance from the successors to their sponsors and anger that such a course of action is now being pursued while the British Army, the political hands that guided them and the liars that protected them have yet to answer for the murderous savagery on Bloody Sunday.

Despite this example of the duplicity of British "justice" where their colonial excesses are involved, it's hard to have a shred of sympathy for any Stickie who might be charged. There is a delicious irony in them being turned on by their handlers after they came to the Brits' rescue by claiming that their activities on the day justified the Paras slaughtering fourteen innocent civilians.

Jeez, if they pulled in Eoghan Harris for directing them ....

Typically the BA who were primarily responsible get off scot free as usual as usual wherever they have slaughtered.

You do realise that legacy prosecutions are being brought against soldier veterans who served in the north? No? Read the bloody papers then!

Hmmmm, how many will serve time do ye think ?

How many "have" served time and how long for ? ...
(to save you looking it up, not very many & not very long .. then reinstated & promoted)

Excuse us if we're a bit skeptical re British Justice for clown forces !!

None of the sides (Loyalist/Republician/British/Irish) will or want tell the truth.

and an Amnesty for all those that come clean .
There is an existing half arsed type amnesty, those who confess or get done for pre 98 crimes can only get 2 years max.

Or Else . Move On . I know thats hard on families but it has to be the above or move on .
The victims have been both forgotten and exploited by all sides.

Time Waits For No One
Hopefully future generations look back and think WTF was that all about...

Not serving soldiers! Old age pensioners. In one case a 75 year old.

So if a 75 year old was found to have murdered a relative of yours 30 or 40 years ago, you would say "Ah, thats ok, just forget it lads" ?

Really ?

whats your statute of limitations here ?

Are you one of these who will constantly cry about the "potential prosecutions" of the poor BA whilst ignoring the fact that, all in, about 4 of them have went to jail and the most any served was about 4 years after which they went straight back into the BA to be rewarded with a promotion.... (even though they were sentenced to Murder).....


It must be lovely being deluded in Wicklow ... we know better up here Im afraid..

And?..........:confused:
They aren't being protected by the Ministry of Defence! They are just as likely to receive prison sentences as former IRA men are.

It is academeic anyway as under the GFA no sentence can be longer than 2 years.

The same applies to victims of the IRA/INLA etc.

Either a statute of limitations is set or it is not. You can't have 1 rule for 1 organisation and another for the rest. Either prosecute all or none - simple!

Are you a moron? They will be tried by jury you dope - in NI courts! It won't be down to 1 Judge as under Diplock.

Please read all the details of the process before responding.

You're arguing with yourself now .. no arguments from me there pal..

The difference is, the IRA/INLA have spent tens of thousands of years in prison .. you could count the BA's total term on two hands & feet...

The point is, the IRA etc.. were thoroughly chased, investigated, prosecuted & convicted with punitive sentences,
whilst the BA were none of the above....

Are ye getting it yet ?

Do you "really" think that Diplock courts were the only things saving the clown forces from facing justice .... And you have a cheek to call someone else a "moron" :roll: ffs .. save that for yourself dude !!


Edit, btw genius, ye conveniently forgot to respond to this bit...
