PIRA GSM

Hundreds of medals have been minted, which will be handed to IRA members who served the organisation from 1970 to date. The 'service medals' will be awarded to activists - a clear sign that the movement is evolving towards being more of an old comrades' association.

Republican sources confirmed this weekend that the medals will be given out as part of an island-wide series of reunions over the next few months.
No, I'm sorry, but words fail at this juncture. I just wonder whether they've minted silver special ones for the gallant lads who planted the under-car booby-traps.

Reunions huh? All the boyos gathered in a bunch for a drink and a bit of 'war' story telling huh? Maybe they would like to remember the old times from their victims point of view and we can blow the f**king lot off the face of their green little island.

I know it'll never happen, but the thought makes me smile :wink:

You may be onto something there :twisted:

But that's exactly what they'll do with a few beers in them and the knowledge that they can get away with MURDER!

I wonder if they will have to wait as long as us for them to be issued?

Maybe Tony 'I don't talk to terrorists' Blair or Mo 'Babe' Mowlem might present them?

Or perhaps the pansy Mandelson; he celebrated the killing of British soldiers by Israeli terrorists, so why not PIRA?

Knowing the way New Labour operate, I suppose we could see them turn up at London, march down the mall towards Whitehall, down to Number 10. The Dear Leader comes out, says aren't we all happy together, present them their medals and then goes back in to Parliament to scupper plans for an Arctic medal :evil:

If TBLIar does present a medal to them, do you think one of the Boyos would stick a bomb on TBLiar and waste him? Please? Pretty please? :wink:

I really don't care that the inhabitants of the Emerald Toilet wish to remember their 'service' by wearing false medals. Part of it is to generate a disgust from the rest of us. They needn't have bothered.

What really grips my piles are the sympathisers and apologists within our own Government.

At least you dont have to put up with them laying claim to your national identity and best of all leading peace protests against Iraq.
They also tend to act like they're already in government...passing party resolutions to "allow" our (Irish) army send troops to Liberia, so very gracious of them.

true true, what is not generally known outside of Ireland is that the PIRA is at odds with the ROI Govt because the PIRA is a marxist organisation including SF party.
the Dublin Govt is the real govt of Ireland and most irish i have spoken to are disgusted at what the IRA do in their name and most of them are not interested in anexing NI , they prefer to be by principle of consent

Well yes there is the marxism, most people might focus a bit more on the mass murder aspect though.

Let them have their medals, let them give their medals to their children and grandchildren when they die - one day they will see that medal - when the gates of hell open and they get what they deserve!

Most people in the Republic of Ireland are either indifferent or hostile to Sinn Féin/PIRA - and this is even taking into account the 'three pint Republicans' some people here have doubtless encountered in the ROI, USA or even certain pubs in the UK. However, the younger generation have a different view of them shaped by their pious blather about the 'peace process' and the lack of direct experience or memory of the Troubles - the border has always been more a psychological barrier than an actual one. Personally, I would be deeply troubled about the electoral success that Sinn Féin have enjoyed in recent years. I have seen what a slick political machine they operate in the Republic, notably in universities, even to the extent of having their own society in Trinity College, Dublin. The sad fact is that many people are attracted by the 'whiff of cordite' about them. The security forces - Gardaí and Defence Forces - loathe Sinn Féin/PIRA and their various offshots with a passion, and this goes back to the Irish Civil War of 1922-23. The 'awarding' of this so-called 'service medal' is nothing new, but is yet another attempt to confer legitimacy on themselves. It has already been pointed out that Sinn Féin/PIRA use the term 'Provisional' liberally in describing themselves, as they regard themselves as the legitimate government and armed force for the entire island of Ireland - they only recognise the result of the 1918 election. It is not all that long ago that Adams and Co. were constantly referring to the government of the Republic of Ireland (or '26 counties' as they preferred) as 'the Dublin Government'. The PIRA and its offshots had no difficulty in the past in killing members of the police and army in the Republic. The Catholicsm of Sinn Féin/PIRA has always been a front, particularly since the split from the Official IRA ('the Stickies') in the early 1970s. Their doctrine has been Marxist (they want a Socialist 32 County Irish Republic) for some time, which is one of the reasons they received sanctuary, weapons, and training in the East Bloc, notably East Germany.

I wonder if they'll wear them in public?

Now, I'm fully aware that the Loyalist terrorists are a bunch of tattooed fcukwits who like to sell drugs and kneecap each other to cries of "splitter!", but as nice Uncle Gerry once sagely said of PIRA, "they haven't gone away, you know".

And, man, do they know how to hold a grudge.

Have you got one of those monster trucks with really big wheels?
