The IRA fought a guerrilla war of national liberation, the only people who call that murder are imperial propagandists and the people who buy the propaganda.

Whatever you call it, people on both sides killed people in cold blood. The army, the loyalists and the IRA are all as bad as each other.

I mean, even the IRA themselves eventually admitted that stuff like the pub bombings/Enniskillen/Warrington had been morally wrong as well as totally counter productive.

So not sure what point our Irish comrade is trying to make here tbh.

Amateurs get things wrong, make mistakes, have accidents.

Professionals enact policy, carry out orders.

IRA violence was a reaction to British imperial policy, your question should correctly be addressed to the originators and instigators of any and all the violence.

Collective guilt is a right f***er for children out shopping with their mothers, eh?

Im presuming then by your twisted logic that if one of your kids was killed in an ISIS terror attack you'd be cool with that given that they are just fighting the western oppressor?

Agreed.
This is why "both sides" doesn't cut it.
