Just watched the six one news, apparently it featured a story that a court in the North has ruled that the 1998 Omagh bombing could have been prevented.
That’s hardly news as many people believe that the Brits knew all about it and did nothing to stop it.
RTE reported it as the single worst atrocity of the troubles. I thought the Dublin and Monaghan bombings were the single worse event, with up to 30 people killed in Dublin ( including a woman pregnant with twins). RTE puts out propaganda for the British intelligence services as far as I can see. I am open to correction if I have got the numbers wrong.
My point of view is that “Who came out the Winner” because more often than not the “Winners” are the ones who were behind it in the first place. Who gained ? reaped benefit from the situation ?
Here a Question raised by British Government minsters a few weeks ago, They were apparently offended by suggestion from the French that “Northern Ireland” is not really part of the United/Disunited Kingdom. I thought that Ireland belong to the Irish people and not to the Brits. The Brits seemed to think otherwise . Somehow I don’t think the “Brits” have learned anything from the past or the “troubles” or the whole of Irish history. Eight centuries of “Murder, Rape and Robbery” says that the six counties belong to the Irish. Ulster is nine counties not six and never was “British”.
Just one thing that happened a few months ago whilst going to my car in said carpark. I bought a number of things from the deli in the Eurospar in Rathkeale including one baked potato which slipped from my grip. Hey Presto it makes a mess on the ground which looks like I will have to clean up but to my surprise a group of crows descend and tidy up the mess by eating the baked potato on the ground and saves me the work of having to clean up. I put the bag in the bin . Nature will clean up a lot i think .
