The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. BBC News - Pat Finucane's family anger after PM rules out inquiry

    Why can't these scumbags just leave it? Pat Finucane was an IRA lawyer who managed to set lots of murderers free, while his brother was a hardcore terrorist and OC Belfast Brigade. If you get involved in terrorism you run the risk of becoming a victim of it. It's a pretty poor show that the loyalists shot him in front of his kids but it's not as if he wasn't up to his armpits in death and destruction already.

    His wife said she was almost too angry to speak. Perhaps she needs to think of her husband's indirect victims.

  2. His brother Seamus was fiance of Farrel (Shot dead by SAS in Gibraltar) of Farrel Savage McCann.

    The case brought against HMG in European Court of Human Rights saw British Irish Rights Watch in concert with "Inquest", two UK charities, bleating on behalf of the terrorists.

    "Inquest" charity registration limits it to activity in England and Wales so why were they sticking their nose into a Gibraltar case ?

    BIRW made a submission to the Rosemary Nelson Inquiry amounting to a conspiracy theory about England based right wing paramilitaries.

    However when the matters of English right wing, paramilitary activity arrests in UK TA which included unlawful deployments to Eire and NI, were raised the Pat Finucane Human Rights Centre said "Maybe it is time we let the Rosemary Nelson case go to the back burner".

    Which rather made me think perhaps the paramilitary activity I mention was not actually the work of "Loyalist terrorists" at all ?

    But perish the thought that the Pat Finucane Human Rights Group is somewhat partisan in whose rights should have primacy and when those rights should be downgraded for terrorist security reasons.

    And perish the thought that the Charity Commission should investigate BIRW and Inquest.

    Seems that strange folks march under the Human Rights banners ?

    Yes let's have a FULL inquiry compliant with the UN Minnesota Protocol under Judiciary unfettered by politically imposed terms of reference (like should have happened for David Kelly).

    Now don't be too hard on Dave in giving the Finucanes the bad news. After all it would be bad form to embarrass a previous Conservative government.
  4. No. Let's not waste even more ****ing money. They got the Saville Inquiry and should now shut up and **** off back to venerating Michael Collins and Teddy Kennedy.
  5. And Neil Lennon
  6. Prefer to venerate John Lennon!

    At last, the first time in a while that the Government has stood up to the Republicans. Let's hope it doesn't lead to more "they haven't gone way" comments

    Why dosen't the Goverment adopt Martin Mcguiness' approach on his election campaign?

    "We did some bad things but that was way back then lets leave it and not rake up anything" (or words to those effect)

  8. Corrected that for you
  9. I hear that Bobby Sands (RIP) is back on the radar.

    Apparently Weightwatchers have applied for a licence to have exclusive use of his name to promote their slimming products!
