    If you notice, this is about a particular incident, not the N.I. situation in general... :rolleyes:

    People adding in the whole 30 years are just muddying the waters because they don't like the result!

    Ah, so that's why the saville report was called "bloody sunday, and all that other sh*t" :LOL:

    Blinkers?...Another one that doesn't bother reading the topic...

    Both sides shoulder the blame for civilian deaths, but in this instance the british army killed indiscriminately in just the same way as republican bombs... In fact, it could be considered more callous, as they knew their victims faces!

    You're right there. Mistakes were made, but try to bear in mind that the terrorists actions are pro-active, planned and pre-meditated. And usually callous and cowardly. To provide a perfect re-active response you would have to change your name to God.

    Apologies, my quotes are mixed up. Both my comments here are new posts.

    Maybe in future you should make it more obvious... ;)

    IF that were the case. Was the culpability at Command level or at street level?
    Were you there?

    It's been recorded in multiple reports that this was the case, not IF...

    'Culpability' is obviously shared... :rolleyes:

    Were you? I see you weren't !

    If you rely on that argument, then no-one but immediate witnesses to any event have any right to comment on anything, including yourself...

    Do get your facts right... ;)

    You're right, which is why I have made no comments on the events of that day.

    You have given a lot of opinion , so what was your involvement on that day? Were you there?
    Has your first-hand evidence been submitted to the report?

    Please read my previous (re-posted) post, above. You can see that I have made no judgement on the events.

    I didn't state a fact, I asked a generic question.


    Here's another question. Do you get hot (generally) running from street to street in full combat gear and flak jacket, carrying an SLR and waiting for sniper fire at any time, or is it a walk in the park for you?

    PS you may not have slept more than a few minutes during the last 48 hours

    Really?..I suppose your comments about 'paramilitaries' not being recognisable referred to other events and explicitly NOT this one?

    keep digging... ;)

    This was not a 'generic' event, so your comment has no validity...

    And there's the mistake...

    full combat gear?...why were soldiers in 'full combat gear' sent in to do 'crowd control'?

    The holes in your argument just keep getting bigger... :LOL: :LOL: :LOL:

    And given your logic, did you witness that?
