The IRA have bombed England;
Jessie: I am personally against anyone bombing any country.
But, please do not forget that Ireland is an island. Or was, until another country invaded it and caused the death of over 3 million inhabitants (directly or indirectly) during the 19th century and is still occupying the fourth part of a supposed sovereign ISLAND.
It´s easy to call anyone defending their own country a terrorist! But, please don´t mix apples with oranges.
How would you feel if someone entered your house, killed your wife and children and, when you try to use your legitimate right to defend yourself and your property, they call YOU the terrorist??
The ETA in Spain, the whatever in France and the Bader Meinhof gang in Germany are a different kettle of fish.
