    Default Sinn Fein should now apologise for killing British Army and security force personnel in the north

    According to DUP MLA, Willie McCrea, in the aftermath of the McCabe apology, it is now incumbent upon Gerry Adams to apologise for the IRA’s killing of members of the crown forces in the north.

    “Whilst the McCabe family has received an apology, it is time for Gerry Adams to apologise for the targeting and murdering of police officers and soldiers in Northern Ireland,” said Mr McCrea.

    Given that the crown forces represent the overwhelming majority of the Provisional IRA’s victims, does Mr McCrea have a valid point?

    Boxcar Willie has never had a valid point in his life. This certainly is not one. End of.

    If the Crown is apologizing unreservedly for all the crimes committed by it's forces in the last 800 years in Ireland and takes over- just for a start- the entire national debt of the Republic, one can start thinking about how to react in a mature way to the proposal !

    Republicans have in the past apologised for the deaths of non-combatants. However the RUC and British Army were both very active combatants in this case

    He has undermined himself here and possibly opened a can of worms in relation to deaths north of the border.

    The McCabe death has been used and abused by politicians ever since the rounds were emptied into him. It's horrific double standards held by both sides that sickens people the most. Whether it be the Irish government refusing to release the men under the terms of the GFA or Gerry Adams apologising in order to boost his 'man of peace and responsibility' image to simply garner votes for the SF brand of republicanism.

    Well that's very rich coming from a cheerleader of loyalism like McCrea -

    I wonder how the north would have work out if the IRA did not take up the gun in 1969/ 70.
