122. Please don't confuse the issue
I will only post once on this subject today but I would strongly suggest
you look into events like the Warrington bombing ... definitely falls
into your category of "spectacular" but the minimal advance warning was
deliberately intended to herd survivors from the first bomb into the
locality of the second bomb - thus maximising the civilian casualties.
In this case the civilian casualties weren't merely "collateral damage"
from an attack aimed at a guard post or whatever but children on a
shopping trip. This was not an isolated incident but other terrorist
groups learned a lot about timing for effect from it.

I am in no mood to debate the wrongs and wrongs of the Irish struggle
today (there are no "rights" to justify the centuries of evil) but,
just in my opinion, your comment comes across as flame-bait on a day
where there have been too many real flames to warrant discussion here.

If it was a mistake then please accept my apologies for being too
sensitive on certain issues.
