Re: Martin McGuinness

Great post. To the point and devoid of any of the uneducated bile spouted by some.

I am wondering how the usual suspects on here would behave should they have been in a similar situation, deprived of democracy and being murdered by forces of the state. ?

MMG took great risks for peace and deserves great credit for it. If it wasn't for Sinn Fein pushing for democratic instructions and civil rights we would still have the bombs going off. Certainly the Unionist Terrorists and their British backers weren't pushing for such things, why should they when they already had everything their own way since the undemocratic inception of the statelet. Of course the afforementioned held out against democracy until they no longer could hold back the tide of world openion.
