this is a can of worms ! living in northern ireland and having been in the service along with other family members i have perhaps a greater insight from both sides of the whole N.I argument.
perhaps better not to persue this one al , but then thats only my own opinion m8.
where you ever over here? its a beautifull country with genuinly friendly people.loads to see and do
dont believe the hype and hugely misguiding news stories.
and dont get caught up in the pasts violence.move on with optimism ,and while the past should not be forgotten--- it should not be lived in!
did anyone hear about simon weston winning the lottery?.......
yeah i was over there before the cease fire days in west belfast for 6 months with 40 commando in 93,and yeah great country and 90% of the people , i have to admit i only registered so i could read the forum, and while i`m very proud of serving etc i too could see both sides of the story which would throw "them" off their guard , too much hate and sadness i found, which can also be contagious, so i have all my pics and lessons learnt etc, just wondered on other opinions about the site ,and a can of worms for sure so advanced apologies to people offended etc or if mods lock this off then fare enough, dont think i`ll persue it though ,like you say about the past naughty, cheers al
