Response to Nye Bevan (Reply #26)

67. Not the Taliban...but the IRA were never anywhere near as evil as the 'Ban were.

Ordinary Afghans...I wouldn't lose sleep over it...because the people of Afghanistan DO have the right to regard all that we've done to them as evil.

The IRA never deprived women in NI of medical care in the name of modesty, for God's sakes.

Here's the thing...even if Adams was no saint, can you really argue with his point about Thatcher here? Does it matter who points out that she brought nothing but misery to the Six Counties? And was it not unforgiveable for her to let the hunger strikers deny rather than admit to the obvious fact that, whatever you can say about the morality of their actions, their actions were political and they were political prisioners?
