Then they need to grow up and stop being so pathetic. Are you aware of how long ago Cromwell lived and died? It is holding onto stupid little grudges of our ancestors that causes wars in the first place.

The point was the Coloneies didn't want to pay taxes to Britian, so they declared their indenpence, and Britian came over here to put down a rebellion. The other Dominion can break away because Ireland pushed the boundies of her Dominion status, by trying to join the League of Nations. Canada play role in this also, if anyone knows the details please clime in.

Well if it had ended there, well yes. But now that Ireland has her own Nation, and the Queen payed a visit, and has declared her right to exit, yes these grudges can final to put to rest.
And Britian needs to learn that it can't just sweep the proverbal dust of history under the rug and just think that it will go away.

I’m sorry but what has 9/11 to do with political violence in early 20th century Ireland?

I am not sure of American dustbut I believe that this is the last thing that Britain do’s, no one denies the British ‘dust of history’ as you put it. Britain has more dusty skeletons rattling around in our historical broom cupboard than you can shack a stick at

I do think that not over many British people would agree that Ireland had a right to self determination. It is often forgotten that the war for Irish statehood was viewed by many in Britain as understandable. Newspaper cartoons of the day showed “the murder gangs’ of the IRA in the same light as the Black and Tans.

If I may comment on Gile na Gile, he is a wordsmith of the first order, and a reminder of what cost Britain so muchin international and home propaganda. The IRA became experts in dissembling actions, so much so that the British establishment of the day are seen now as professional armatures. this is not to gainsay that they actually were not.

It was in response to B&B rather insensitive remark about the other B Family(the dust remark that is) that I was refering to And went I say the British I'm refering the government of Britian not the People,I'm aware that the English people saw only the Black and Tans as beating up on the Irish people not just going after Sinn Fein.
