    Default Would you support a modern day Irish Republican Army?

    Would you support a modern day Irish Republican Army?

    Of course im not talking about the IRA we have seen since the 70`s, I mean the IRA of the 1916 type.

    Ifa group of armed men and women delcared a new Irish Republic away from the current badly rum political elite, would you offer them your support?

    Would you give your support should they storm the GPO in some act of national stance promising a new fairer Ireland for all its citizens away from thr corruption of the current government and oppostions parties?

    Would you support them taking up arms against fellow Irish men and Women who stood in their way of creating a new Republic?

    Would you support a modern day Irish Republican Army?

    No. It would be a ridiculous, nonsensical thing to do. And irresponsible, and criminal. I'd support their arrest and punishment.

    Like any sane person would.

    What's the difference between the current IRA and "a group of armed men and women delcared a new Irish Republic away from the current badly rum political elite"?

    Only if they know what an independent sovereign nation is all about; unlike that current mob of cretins in Leinster House, who think sovereignty is little more than unlimited credit card for them to borrow against.

    The IRA of the 1916 type got you in the mess you are in.

    The men of 1916 were not supported by the people then. What makes you think they would now?

    absolutely not, like it or not democracy is the least bad of all options, militant / terrorist action is never the answer

    So for all those who say no, would you have said no back in 1916?

    Do you think what the IRA did back then was wrong?
