BIGDAN Posted January 27, 2009 Share Posted January 27, 2009 The reason the government couldn't do anything because the IRA didn't just come out and ask for bills. They had their little fundraising groups like NORAID someone mentioned. Our judicial system is a piece, so it's not as easy as just saying "Those are going to the IRA, so now its illegal." There's a big process for it. I understand mate, we had the same people collecting funds here, still do by the way in Kilburn London, and its supposed to be all over now but as far as I know and have been told the IRA have turned to being criminals and run their areas just as violently as when the troubles were happening. I knew people who died as a result of the "Troubles" both in Ireland and here in the UK. They blew up one of my local pubs in Woolwich and killed many people in the UK, it took the bombing of the financial district of London before the UK government would even talk to them. What the terrorists/freedom fighters need to do is stop killing the innocent and attack the money making parts of any country, you get listened to more quickly and achieve better results. But we also have to define just whos who, IRA-HAMAS, fredom fighter or terrorist, I can see it from both sides and they really are similar, how about you?
