    'You did it first' is hardly an adult justification. Ours is history from another age, not current affairs. And btw Suez was about money.

    All nations (potentially) have terror groups because everyone has grievances - the way to solve N.Ireland is for the British government to stop supporting the loyalists and for the 'Irish' Americans to stop rattling charity-style buckets in bars to buy bombs.

    The loyalists are just trying to keep their hands on the money and power, and the nationalists just want it off them. Simple. Same as everywhere else. FA to do with history - which is perhaps the second-last refuge of the scoundrel.
