Thread: Were the Irish Republican Army terrorists or patriots?

  1. #1

    Default Were the Irish Republican Army terrorists or patriots?

    If you're fighting in your own land against an invader can you really be a 'terrorist". If Ireland was invaded again I suspect that most most of us would be inclined toward acts of resistance that would include armed attacks on the invaders. Would we be 'terrorists' or patriots?

    The good one that rid 2/3 of the country through the letter writing campaign of course not the bad one that shot informers and colluders.

    All the versions of the IRA had one thing in common...they are all cowardly murderers...
