3,722 dead between 1966 and 2007…

There seems no better way to mark the end of a profoundly tragic period in Irish history, than to re-produce a list compiled within The Irish Times today, of all of those who lost their lives between the three murders of June 1966 and the two victims of March this year.

Update: Since the blog entry here can only cope with victims up to October 1979, I’m going to post the second half under a separate entry:

    See whose life was cut tragically short on those days important to you.

    There is only one united which counts. It’s not United Kingdom, nor United Ireland. It’s united in making sure that this never happens again.
    We all have our small parts to play in this. Lets roll up the sleeves and get the job done.

  • 2050

    WN,

    All sides murdered using their cause /(War) or belief as justification. And no doubt the actions and words of the two equal ministers in the past can be indirectly linked to victims of that unnecessary conflict.

    But the vast majority have accepted the current settlement, have moved on and are looking to the future.

    Stop shit stirring and accept it ! We are all EQUALS NOW.

  • seanzmct

    What has struck me about the whole sickening aggrandisement of sectarian politics that is the D’Hondted perversion of democracy at Stormont is the lack of humility and remorse on the part of McGuinness and Paisley. These political knuckle-draggers were chiefly responsible for delaying
    a setlement which could have saved many lives.
    They have finally arrived at Sunningdale Mark 11, for the slowest of slow learners, dripping with the blood of innocents.

  • Whatever Next

    Being told to stop ‘shit stirring’ by a fantasist with the handle, ‘2050’ – truly welcome to Norn Iron’s black is white and white is black world.

    But let’s actually look at that garbage (for guess what 2050, just because you and your would-be bully boys scream at the rest of us to shut up/go away/ask no more difficult or unhelpful questions, tough luck, it’s not going to happen, and that list of names up there is the reason why):

    What fantasyland are you living in? “[N]o doubt the actions and words of the two equal ministers in the past can be indirectly linked to victims of that unnecessary conflict” – you don’t say? That wouldn’t be because in Martin’s case he was the one giving the orders? Seriously, is this news to you? Or is there some other sectarian pathology at work here that required you engage in that astonishing piece of parsing? ‘Can be indirectly‘ – is that really the best you can do?

    Never mind the tendentious Republican lie that ‘both sides were as bad as the other’ (they plainly weren’t), let’s just conecntrate on your ‘two equal ministers’. Paisley, a bigot and a fool, who has spent a lifetime lying, and has got to where he is today. Martin? Murdered and murdered and murdered, and for what? So that he could be a devolved minister at Stormont, being paid by London to administer partition. Remind me, whatever he said publicly at the time, was that all along the secret reason he gave to his friends for why he and they muredered as many of those poor deaf folk as they did?

  • Free Agent

    What was it all for?

    I have a good mind to invoice the jokers at OFMDFM for compensation for wasting my time over the last thrity odd years. In particular for creating and maintaining an atmosphere of violence in my home country from which i was forced to flee after a severe assault at the hands of paramilitaries. And also for the loss of earnings – given the suppressed nature of the job market here in the past leading to large periods on the dole before giving up and seeking employment elsewhere. So yes, a big f*ck you very much to the happy couple at Stormornt. I and thousands of others who didn’t vote for you, look forward to receiving our financial package for not shooting anybody nor engaging in tribal politics and trying to live a normal life.
    Those two and their ilk should look at the list of dead people above and hang their heads in shame for not having done this thirty years ago.

  • 2050

    WN,

    Firstly, I take exception to being pigeon holed a bully boy. I have never bullied anyone and neither myself or and members of my extended family have been members of any organisation. I’m a respected businessman. Politically, I would support the reunification of this island and do support SF as this is their goal.

    My post wasn’t making excuses for anyone and I have no problem with awkward questions. As far as I am aware neither of the two ministers have ever been convicted of murder and would be interested to hear evidence to the contrary.

    Your post seems to be very one sided with the vague assertion that MMcG murdered alot of people where as a nationalist I could argue Paisleys words and politics of fear over the last 40 years indirectly contributed to some of the 3722 in our graveyards. We could go on and on but its time to MOVE ON.

  • Jamie Gargoyle

    The point is not whataboutery (our national sport).
    The point is not recriminations for who holds most blame.
    The point is not handwringing and fingerpointing about past missed opportunities.

    The point is that list.
    It is a rollcall of 3722 lives ended before their time. It is a sorry waste of the most precious thing in the universe. If that number of graves were put in one place, it would more than fill our new national stadium.

    The point is making sure that list never gets any longer than it already is.

    A squeaking would-be bully boy is just what you are: “Stop shit stirring and accept it”, as you would bluster yourself. Who the hell are you to instruct us, let alone that list of the dead to “move on”? Martin didn’t give the ones he’s responsible for murdering the chance of ‘moving on’ or ‘accepting’ anything. But what’s the point in even trying to have a serious conversation with someone like you? “As far as I am aware neither of the two ministers have ever been convicted of murder and would be interested to hear evidence to the contrary” – did you even blush as you typed that. Try saying it to the family of the late Vera McVeigh. You wouldn’t dare.

  • 2050

    WN,

    Bullying is wrong.

    Whatever you might think of the two first ministers they have brought the two extremes of NI society to where we are now. Peace is the only way and the majority here voted for it and want to move on. Hard as it might be to swallow its democracy.

    On the wider issue of political leaders and murderers, How far back and how deep do you want to go?

    Is George Bush’s responsible for putting 600,000+ Iraq’s in their graveyards. Who is responsible for those in Irelands Famine graveyards etc etc

    Perhaps you have some new direction or suggestions as to where we could go from here. As your name suggests Whatever next? Backwards or Forwards?

    If u dont like it i’ve got two words for you – Direct Rule. I could of said somethin else but i wont.

  • Whatever Next

    Yet another one telling those he doesn’t like to listen to to shut up. Welcome to DUPSFistan.

    Zero problem with direct rule, obviously, but what do i want? Martin McGuinness to pay the price for murdering all those people on that list up there that he killed. He should be in prison, not ministerial office. And no number of Provo apologists coming along here and telling other folk to shut up will change that moral reality.

  • scary_eire

    WN

    You’ll get that the same time Paisley pays for the people he’s killed.

    Wait a minute – that aint gonna happen. Any other ideas?

    Both othered the killing of innocent people. IMHO i think direct rule should of been given until the place settled down, but hey – what are ya gonna do.

  • Whatever Next

    Thanks for the whataboutery – really useful, profoundly good and interesting point. Oh wait. How many times do the morally blind have to be told this? I’m not like you: I’m not pathetically desperate to cover up my deserved shame at supporting one bunch of murdering hoods that i have to waste time twisting myself into absurd jesuitical positions equating them to some other bunch of scumbags. Regardless of whether or not Paisley ‘murdered’ people as you airily claim (and I wouldn’t want Slugger’s legal bill, if that’s allowed to stand), I’m saying the same thing for everyone: murderers in prison, not office.

  • scary_eire

    Again – i think direct rule should have been implemented for a number of years. This would of ruled out the possibility of terrorists entering government.

    But hey – this is what the people of the North voted for

  • avonmore

    Whatever Next

    Yu make some good redundant points. Morally, you are right. It is a disgrace to the people of Irleand that these two puppets have been given those roles. Paisley could have been stmaped out by MI5 years ago but they picked their men.
    I remember the first few killings. Hoe we spiralled downwards after that. There can be no moving on until the guilty of the UVF/PIRA/DUP etc are held to account.
    They won’t be held to acount here. The best we can hope for here is a few salient points we might use elswhere. The no man’s land will ocntinue for a long time yet.
    I read Martin McG is a good people’s man and he can work with nyone like Gerry or Big Ian. He would have made a good butcher, smiling in his bloody apron and short changing you. I gues that is what happened.
    Perhaps it is time for another “Best team in Ireland” thread. I see the wanker Steve Staunton is after Roy Keane to give him some players. I hope Roy tells him to f-k off.
    Sport is so much better. It is the only part of the paper where the truth is told.

  • Bear in mind these dead:
    I can find no plainer words.
    I dare not risk using that
    loaded word, Remember,
    for your memory is a cruel web
    threaded from thorn to thorn across
    a hedge of dead bramble, heavy
    with pathetic atomies.

    I cannot urge or beg you
    to pray for anyone or anything,
    for prayer in this green island
    is tarnished with stale breath,
    worn smooth and characterless
    as an old flagstone, trafficked
    with journeys no longer credible
    to lost destinations.

    Patriotism has to do with keeping
    the country in good heart, the community
    ordered with justice and mercy;
    these will enlist loyalty and courage often,
    and sacrifice, sometimes even martyrdom.
    Bear these eventualities in mind also;
    They will concern you forever:
    but, at this moment, bear in mind these dead.

    Thank you, Sammy Morse. And thank you, SuperSoupy.

    A friend of mine from when I lived in New York City, whose family fled the Falls Road for Los Angeles when she was very young, sent me this piece from today’s Los Angeles Times:

    http://www.latimes.com/news/printedition/opinion/la-oe-platt9may09,1,6030834.story?coll=la-news-comment

    The author finds reason to hope in the fact that the “remembrance of things past” is bound to be fractious and fragmented now and in times to come.

    But, meanwhile, as John Hewitt wrote and Sammy’s reminded us, “bear in mind these dead.”

  • Whatever Next

    Bare in mind who killed so many of them: minister Martin. And for what? So that, it turns out, he could collect his British salary in public. My how the dead are honoured. The John Whyte, for example, murdered on 1st January 1974 – no idea who he was? How could I? He’s been dead and forgotten to all but his family thirty years and more. But not Martin. No he’s still with us, still doing stuff, still being noticed, still breathing. The apple of his proud mother’s eye. Lucky her, lucky us.

  • scary_eire

    WN

    Is there a point to all this moaning. I mean have you got any solutions to the problem.

  • SuperSoupy

    scary_eire,

    Do not feed the troll.

  • Alas, as usual, our unionist posters — such as the verbose WN — throw the term “murder” around very loosely. Killing combatants in a war is NOT murder except under special circumstances, e.g. the murder of the wounded at Loughall on this very day years ago. And, despite all unionist denials, the Troubles were a war, an armed rebellion or, if you prefer, a civil war.

    so, lets take a look at the non-combatants who were murdered during this long civil war:

    The British security forces killed 190 civilians, slightly more than 50% of the 362 victims killed in all by these armed forces.

    The unionist paramilitaries killed some 873 civilians, over 85% of the 1,020 victims killed by these forces who were armed, trained and coached by the security forces and allowed to operate with virtual immunity as long as they did what they were told.

    So, those forces which defended the Union WN so clearly prefers killed some 1,063 civilians.

    Let’s look at the PIRA now since WN seems to blame them for wholesale slaughter.

    All in all, the IRA killed some 1,707 victims over the course of the war of which some 517 –slightly more than 30% — were civilians according to Sutton.

    Bottom line: WN’s imagination/ignorance/prejudice leads him to make accusations which, when put in context, are simply not true(“thousands of murders”) and, which, in comparison with the records of the defenders of the Union, are far less bloody than the unionists’ record.

  • Starting this thread, especially on this day when all parties should be positive about what has been finally accomplished, and looking forward to the future, was a very bad idea, as WN has demonstrated beyond belief.

    War dead, even in the best of wars, should be put up on a memorial, not made the subject of a blog that anyone can comment on, what can only lead to sniping by disgruntled participants.

    And, Mick should have made good on his threat against NW when he, sounding ever so much like a well-known poster who thought The Troubles were only the product of republicans, especially MM.

    Now, I have said my piece, bring on the spam – what almost always follows my posters anyway – and keep it coming.

    your one track post isn’t just flogged to death, it’s been so thoroughly trashed on a dozen threads you should have the good grace to keep off slugger and post on the sub-Noraid threads that clearly preoccupy you at the expense of having a life.

    The Troubles were not a war/insurrection/civil war, nor recognised as such by 99.9% of the world’s population,nor indeed by a hundred different legal standards , the IRA’s victims were generally not combatants in the sense of being on duty in uniform and armed , they were not killed on active service but usually shot in the back or blown up off duty- the coward’s way of course.

    But even if we play your little game the 517 “innocent” victims that they killed ought to make you think that the IRA have quite a large number of “war crimes” to answer for- and of course you’re quick to forget the hundreds of maimed victims of the IRA- last time I checked the army hadn’t planted too many no-warning bombs in restaurants and pubs. BTW- how many provos have been disciplined for these killings ?

    Pretty pathetic to spend your time saying usuns killed less than themmuns so we’re morally superior.

  • FraserValley

    Fer feck sake stop it–what’s done is done. Martin was responsible for the death of lots of people. Paisley’s big mouth was the same. But these were the only guys who could make peace. The SDLP and the UUP are both non-players.
    I strongly suspect that fifteen or twenty trouble-free years will bring about a change about who would or would not vote for a united Ireland. I strongly suspect that the majority of people will vote to maintain the status quo. I’m protestant so I hope that will happen. However, if it goes the other way that’s OK–I’ll get over it.

  • Sorry, WN, but the insurrection was, indeed, a war under the terms of the Geneva Convention which the UK signed. So, it really doesn’t matter what you think. The plain and simple fact is that the PIRA was engaged in an armed insurrection, a civil war. Too bad, all your ignorant denials simply don’t change that fact.

    In case tyou haven’t noticed, in a war zone or a battlefield, it doesn’t matter whether the combatants were on or off duty, armed or unarmed. As long as they were in the zone or on the battlefield, they were legitimate targets.

    Now, several posters have tried to challenge the facts — just as you have. And, so far, all have failed to support their challenge — just as you have.

    Now, I have no problem with recognizing the fact that the PIRA did, indeed, commit some terrorist acts, but you seem to have a problem with admitting that the British and unionists forces did the same and, indeed, have a far worse record of terrorism than the PIRA.

    Anbd, THAT’s my point –and the fact –which no one has successfully challenged.

    Thanks for that link, it was a well written article. The last paragraph contains a quote from the Kieran McEvoy paper I had mentioned to you.

    Its interesting also that while the idea of ‘healing through forgetting’ may seem appealing, ultimately the past comes back and rears its head.

    In my paper on remembering, I made the point about how the Famine had been ‘forgotten’ for a century and a half, inducing what Eavan Boland called Famine amnesia. However, the ‘moral obligation’ as Mary Robinson called it overcame the other discomforts and the nation remembered.

    I am not convinced, indeed far from it, that we are ready for any joint commemorations at the present point in time. However, remembering is organic and happening every day in every community. What we need to do is allow the space for it to happen.

    I note that Mick was criticised for posting the names of the dead. No one should ever be criticised for reminding us of the past and those who lives were lost. Our future and our peace is the truest commemorative gesture to them

    As someone who doesn’t swear the most polite description of your post is rubbish. If it is a war then the Conventions apply to both sides – read what III & IV have to say about treatment of prisoners and civilans and see who the biggest offenders were – the state or the terrorists on both sides.

    Also if it was a war how come terrorists were only legitimate targets when armed and warned they were about to be engaged in combat (at one stage by a yellow card being waved in the air) whilst the security forces could be shot in their beds and worse!

    “British and unionists forces did the same and, indeed, have a far worse record of terrorism than the PIRA.”

  • [i]”If it is a war then the Conventions apply to both sides”[/i]

    Obviously, you have not done your homework. The GC applies ONLY to those nation-states that signed on. It does NOT apply to the PIRA since the organization never signed the Convention. Sorry, Peter, but your basic premise is simply wrong.

    BTW, I am quite familiar with Protocols III and IV but these do not bind the PIRA. Let me also point out that the treatment of prisoners by the PIRA was somewhat better than the treatment of prisoners by the British security forces and their loyalist paramilitary allies.

    [i]”if it was a war how come terrorists were only legitimate targets when armed and warned they were about to be engaged in combat”{/i]. I never said that. In point of fact, members of the PIRA could be attacked and killed at any time in NI and I have never said any different.

    As I said above, no one has successfully challenged the figures I cite for the horrendous campaign waged by the British security forces and their loyalist paramilitary allies.

    And your post hardly changes that.

  • Since you are critizing me, but not naming me, Miss Fitz, I shall respond.

    I critized Mick Fealty not for posting a list of those killed during The Troubles, but for starting a blog about it – what WN, apparently a most well-known, one-eyed critic of the Provisionals, especially Martin McGuinness, carried to ridiculous lengths, and has continued despite Mick’s warning that he would stop him if he continued.

    This thread has achieved nothing good.

  • Alan

    I can’t help but see the PIRA campaign as a tactic, rather than a war – a failed, disasterous lie that was imposed on all of our people by careless, self-serving fools.

    I can’t help but see loyalist violence as mindless, sectarian and repugnant, that it was allowed to survive untouched for most of the troubles contributed a vicious momentum to the toll of deaths.

    I can’t help but see state collusion as obscene and requiring judicial retribution because they failed us all and, by basing their strategy on violence, stoked sectarianism.

    We cannot just cut the names of the dead into stones and let them slowly corrode into dust. We need answers and stories that we can pass on to our children and broadcast across the world.

    The one lesson we can take from the dreadful irony of Paisley and McGuinness smiling in Stormont’s Great Hall is that the violence that proceeded in their wake was wholly destructive of truth, justice and prosperity and, ultimately, achieved nothing.

  • Whatever Next

    And here we’ve seen Northern Republicanism in full, honest flight. What has been the response of the Provo apologists who have mushroomed on this thread? To boast about Martin’s murders, and, to defend them. That’s their version of ‘respect’ for the dead: which sickly enough turns out to be respect for the people who killed so many of them. Anyone still in need of knowledge about the nature of this perverted ideology has had it laid bare for them. But then that, I suppose, is the single thing which drives SF/IRA supporters to their most demented lengthes. This pathetic desire to pretend that the IRA weren’t terrorists. They say that. Against them: the British government; the Irish government; the American government; every other government in the EU; the Catholic church; the Protestant churches; and *every* test of opinion ever taken north or south of the border. But what do you know, for the deluded defenders of terrorist murder, it’s everyone else that’s wrong, not them, Never them. And where does that sort of immoral arogance get you? In Martin’s case, it’s get you a devolved ministerial job at Stormont, a British salary in public, and the job of administering partition. For so many of the people on that list it got them murdered, by Martin, and for what? So he could sit and laugh with Paisley. Truly the joke’s on us.

If PIRA wants to live up to is name and be an army undertaking a war it needed to play by the rules of war – it was afraid to do so and therefore remained and will always remain a terrorist organisation mounting an armed insurrection.

As far as ‘the point’ of this thread is concerned, you take it whatever way you want. For lots and lots of Slugger’s would-be censors, the point is to say nothing. For some of the rest of us it’s to reflect on who put those men, women and children prematurely into the ground, and on why they claimed they did it. Martin used to claim he did so that he could bring about a Marxist 32 county Irish Republic freed from Crown forces. Now it turns out he was doing it so he could make Paisley first minister, while himself drawing his British salary in public for the arduous job of administering partition at Stormont. Contempt, as I’m going to go on saying, isn’t what Martin deserves, it’s a prison cell. And he also deserves that on behalf of the people he murdered.

    I see more in Yeats than his identity as dead, and white, and male, and believe it or not (and I’ve little doubt you won’t) I find all one-sided interpretations of a three-sided, blood-soaked conflict equally destructive and vomitous.

    But this thread belongs neither to me, to you, nor to Martin McGuinness, but to 3,722 dead between 1966 and 2007. So, I’ll return once more to Sammy Morse’s apt c & p from another articulate dead, white, male:

    threaded from thorn to thorn across
    a hedge of dead bramble, heavy
    with pathetic atomies.

    I cannot urge or beg you
    to pray for anyone or anything,
    for prayer in this green island
    is tarnished with stale breath,
    worn smooth and characterless
    as an old flagstone, trafficked
    with journeys no longer credible
    to lost destinations.

    […]
    Patriotism has to do with keeping
    the country in good heart, the community
    ordered with justice and mercy;
    these will enlist loyalty and courage often,
    and sacrifice, sometimes even martyrdom.
    Bear these eventualities in mind also;
    They will concern you forever:
    but, at this moment, bear in mind these dead.

  • [i]”RoI is a signatory and PIRAS is the self proclaimed army of RoI is it not? Ipso facto it is bound by the conventions.”[/i]

    Sorry, Peter, but, once again, you have not done your homework. In addition to proclaiming that the PIRA was the true army of Ireland, they also proclaimed that the government in Dublin that signed the Covention was not the true RoI.

    Now, you may disagree with both assertions and I would probably agree with you, BUT, in the PIRA’s view and in reality, the acceptance of the GC by the RoI did NOT bind the PIRA in any way. Too bad, Peter, wrong again.

    [i]”Even if it is not dsoes it not say more about PIRA that it chose not to either undertake to apply them (an option open to it under Article 1 paragraph 4 of Protocol 1 or that it did not do so voluntarily?”[/i]

    In view of the terror campaign being waged against the Irish/Catholic/nationalist/republican civilian population of NI, please explain just why you claim the PIRA should have observed the Convention when the British security forces and their unionist paramilitary allies and hired thugs did not? Once again, I suggest that the violations of the terms of the GC were far greater on the British/unionist side than on the PIRA side. I have no problem with admitting that the PIRA did violate the Convention at times but you seemingly cannot come to grips with the plain and simple fact that British security and their puppet paramilitaries did so far more often.

    [i]”Again lets compare proportions of prisoners from HMP Maze who ended up on an unapproved road in South Armagh with the PIRA OBE (One Behind the Ear) with the proportion of IRA prisoners who did so? 30,000 enemy combatants imprisoned / several hundred killed in action with very few killed while in custody v no prisoners taken and hundreds who could have been taken prisoner shot instead.”[/i]

    Of course, the old whitewash brush tries to cover the torture of prisoners held by the British security forces and condemned by the European investigators not once but twice. And the eventual promotion of the RUC supervisor to the post of superintendent of Special Branch and, finally, to Chief Constable. Sorry, Peter, but you again can overstate PIRA wrongdoing but, it seems, are willfully blind to the wrongdoing of the security forces and the unionst paramilitaries who were their hired thugs. And, it is THAT willful blindness that I challenge.

    [i]”If PIRA wants to live up to is name and be an army undertaking a war it needed to play by the rules of war – it was afraid to do so and therefore remained and will always remain a terrorist organisation mounting an armed insurrection.'[/i]

    But, Peter, it is a plain and simple fact that the PIRA did observe the rules of war far better than their armed enemies, i.e. the Army, the RUC, and thier hired thugs, the unionist paramilitaries. No side has entirely clean hands in that war, but your failure to recognize the horrendous record of HMG and its agents and hired thugs is simply not right.

    [i]”Do your homework!”[/i]

    Oh, I have and it pretty clear that you have not looked behind the propaganda you have been fed by HMG, the unionist political, civic and religious leadership and the dishonest media who spread the lies instead of searching for the truth.

Again, from your, uh, distinctive perspective, what’s been the outcome of this civil war? You know, the one that Martin waged so that he could become a devolved minister at Stormont, paid by the British to administer partition, as part of a government headed by Iain Paisley.

    What rules of war did they observe? They did not wear uniforms, they deliberately targetted innocent civilans and non combatants on a scale far greater than the security forces. It might be easier to state when they observed the Convention rather than when they ignored it. The sipmle fact of the matter is that the security forces geberally observed the rules with a few notable exceptions – the terrorists on both sides generally ignored them with even fewer notable exceptions.

    Interestingly unlike you I can support these bald statements – the IRA murdered 636 civilansthe security forces 187.

  • [i]”They did not wear uniforms, they deliberately targetted innocent civilans and non combatants on a scale far greater than the security forces.”[/i]

    Alas, Peter, wrong again. First, the guerrilla army was not required to wear uniforms and secondly, your statement about the number of civilians killed by the security forces totally ignores the 873 civilians killed by the allies of the security forces, the unionist parmailitaries which the security forces armed, trained, coached and allowed to operate with virtual immunity and the blessing of those same secuirty forces. Too bad, Peter, given the collusion between the security forces and the unionist paramilitaries, the murder of civilians by those paramilitaries ARE properly the responsibility of the security forces.

    Now, it seems that many are trying desperately to ignore the ever incresing collection of hard evidence that the security forces were deeply involved in un8ionist paramilitary violence. Sorry, Peter, even on the basis of the hard evidence already uncovered and the frantic efforts of the security force managers to destroy all the evidence they can put their hands on, the story is coming out with new revelations almost daily.

    The murders sanctioned by the security forces and HMG cannot be swept under thre rug and ignored in determining whose hands are bloody in NI.

    Your refusal to adress the issue of widespread collusion berweem the securoty forces makes your analysis totally false.

    And, you should provide a source for the figures you post. I have refernced exactly where I found mine and the source is widely recognized as accurate. What is YOUR source?

  • Mick Fealty

    I’ve seen dozens of circular arguments on this subject through the years. It would help if people could link to the documents and stats they have in mind rather than just allude to the fact they exist.

    This page on Cain documents deaths 1969-94. It makes the total to be 3225, which is clearly 500 short (minus the three victims of 1964) of those who appear to have died in the period of the peace process.

    As for collusion, Bob. You must have missed a few pages in our sainted Peace Process™, since the main players, including but not just HMG, appear to have agree, by and large, not to go to that place. I don’t think anyone can credibly argue that collusion did not take place. But as to its size, shape and character, we can only guess.

    I’ve not seen any evidence that loyalist paramilitaries were set up in systematic way that the Grupo Antiterrorista de Liberacion (GAL) was by the Spanish government to destabilise ETA in 1983, for instance. But the truth on this and several other key matters appears to have been buried by mutual agreement with the advent of the St Andrews Agreement.

Is it only children's parties. Every fool knows that British regular and irregular forces targeted civilians with impunity. You know I never ever heard the Germans moaning that the French resistance never put on uniforms when fighting to free their country. The funny old thing about guerilla warfare is that you tend NOT to fight by the rules that those you are fighting against tell you to. Re-rules of war. If those who are supposed to be upholding the law are in fact breaking it themselves. Then perhaps the only logical conclusion is that there is no law worth following.

    i think it easy to scale the size of collusion in the ranks of republican and loyalist paramilitaries.
    The loyalist scale is well known with the inqueries uncovering names and what murders they commited and were alleged to be involed in. Also without inqueries the people in the loyalist areas know and suspect who is the police informers are. Given the facts they always seem to walk around and do and say what they like and never get convicted. The British and Irish government always held the ace card with their top ranking informers on all sides.
    Nobody can argue the states forces played well with:-
    BUNTER “MI5” GRAHAM(uvf leader 20 years)
    MARK “S.B.” HADDOCK(COMMANDER)
    RAB “S.B” WARNOCK (BRIGADIER S.E.ANTRIM 10 YEARS)
    and many more we all know on the loyalist side!!
    If you look at the republican side it is well known but again people dont dare mention the like of:-

  • Prince, you wrote:

    [i]”You know I never ever heard the Germans moaning that the French resistance never put on uniforms when fighting to free their country.”[/i]

    Though young, I was around during the time of WW2 and, as I recall, the Nazis DID moan about the actions of the various resistance guerrilla groups and DID call them terrorists in their propaganda.

    As I recall, the various resistance groups generally avoided any direct attacks on civilians. I don’t have the actual figures — if, indeed, there are any collected — but AFAIK any attacks on civilians were generally directed at “collaborationist”, i.e. those who worked with the Nazi occupiers. AND, HMG did support the various resistance forces with arms and training, etc.

    In fact, in very much the same way as HMG assisted the unionist guerrilla forces in NI. Only difference is that the resistance forces generally did not attack civilians.

    The “resistance forces” that HMG armed and aided in NI, however, killed some 1,020 victims, Of whom 873 or over 85% were civilians. That says “terrorists” to me and makes HMG and it security forces responsible for those deaths.

  • Peter Brown

    “International Rules About Soldiers

    The Geneva Conventions and supplementary protocols make a distinction between combatants and civilians. The two groups must be treated differently by the warring sides and, therefore, combatants must be clearly distinguishable from civilians. Although this obligation benefits civilians by making it easier for the warring sides to avoid targeting non-combatants, soldiers also benefit because they become immune from prosecution for acts of war.

    For example, a civilian who shoots a soldier may be liable for murder while a soldier who shoots an enemy soldier and is captured may not be punished.

    In order for the distinction between combatants and civilians to be clear, combatants must wear uniforms and carry their weapons openly during military operations and during preparation for them.”

    Once again conclusively – no uniforms = not soldiers = not war = terrorists= murderers

    You however instaed of supporting your seeping generalisations with evidence merely say “many are trying desperately to ignore the ever incresing collection of hard evidence that the security forces were deeply involved in un8ionist paramilitary violence” – where is the hard eveidence?

    Just to ice the cake in my last post a quote from the same reference guide to the International Rules of Warfare (obviously not contained in your War101 Textbooks)

    “Combatants who deliberately violate the rules about maintaining a clear separation between combatant and noncombatant groups Ñ and thus endanger the civilian population Ñ are no longer protected by the Geneva Convention.”

    As a great (sic) man once said

    “Do your homework!”

    Oh, I have

    Hmmm maybe you did but you didn’t do it very well did you?
