“I had hoped that we could turn to the future, but those in Sinn Fein who want to rewrite history are intent in stirring things up and sadly are being allowed to do so,” Lord Empey told the News Letter.

“It really is quite intolerable that we continue to face this one-sided demand for inquiries when there is obvious culpability in Dublin for action they took and actions taken by what was a ‘government within a government’ in the late 1960s and early 70s.”
DUP MP Nigel Dodds said: “It is high time the Government started to press the Irish government about an inquiry into the role of Dublin in the creation and funding of the Provos and the deaths that resulted from the Republic’s refusal to allow proper extradition of terrorists to Northern Ireland for decades.”

I am sure this proposal will meet with cross community support, (especially on p.ie) after all the state must be above suspicion and uphold the lawful and moral rules of a civilized society...

I doubt it.

Unionists have made it clear they do not want any inquiries.

Well… apart from those which suit them.

The British army sat and watched as a friend of mine was murdered because he was a Catholic, they then decided to kill the gunman. The gunman's mother died when she heard that her son was dead. If that's not British state terrorism I don't know what is.

Given that one can assume that you support calls for inquiries into British state collusion? do you also support calls for inquiries into Irish state collusion?

Aye, but do you accept that the British state murdered people they claimed as their own citizens? If you do the IRA campaign was fully justified in trying to get British state violence out of Ireland.

Wow, wow wow, trollsy. The thing is SF call for an independent truth commission, and would support ALL inquiries/controversies into the conflict. Unionists only want inquires into the miniscule-mythical free state collision, which is a deflection from the horrors and brutal state terrorism and imperialism which their state committed in Ireland and around the globe.

I'm opposed to violence from any source. Do you oppose the murders celebrated every year by the Orange Order?

Any chance you could move into the 21st Century with your debates?
:lol:

Says an Orange order enthusiast and fetishist of draconian and medieval unionism.

Irish republicanism was/is a justified reaction to British imperialism in Ireland. You just can't detach that fact at will.
