Nobody prosecuted for Inniskillen, nor the two lads in Warrington to my knowledge, yet they know who they are. This latest injustice is about scapegoating and they have chosen a token squaddy. Makes you sick.
I knew someone who was sick to the back teeth of it all and even they got half inched!
The case for prosecuting Bloody Sunday ‘Soldier F’ | The Spectator
I'm not sure if you can read this without registering, I did first time around but now it asks me to register.
Forgive the IRA and we must forgive the Bloody Sunday soldiers too
"Post–agreement, convicted IRA murderers literally laughed as they left the dock, smug in the certainty that in short order the court would have no choice but to set them free. I realise that only the inclusion of prisoner release made the agreement possible, but the moral compromise was enormous. This expedient deal with the devil showed no respect for the feelings of the families who’d lost relatives to Northern Irish terrorism. They just had to suck it up. In which case, sorry to be so brutal, but the families of Bloody Sunday’s victims should have to suck it up, too."
I was sixteen at the time and was a cadet in the Air Training Corp. One summer (early 70's) week long trip to Drip Camp, think Dobbies garden centre at Stirling.
A squad of paras were training on base, we were looked upon as easy fodder for this particular squad of thugs, and a source of entertainment. Takes a special breed of thug to do what these thugs did for entertainment on a group of teens. As for me, my age at that time, I was sharp as a tack, if I couldn't outrun whomever, I would out manovre. One particular day I was cornered, my only option was to jump into the River Forth, which I did and swam in full fatigues to the other bank to get away from a couple of these thugs.
Reflecting back from what these thugs did for fun on what was basically a bunch of teens. Wouldn't surprise me of these allegations being true and, there should be no escape from due legal process, irrelevant of how long ago.
The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
