Bomb Attack in N. Ireland

November 19, 1987

Damn the IRA. It plants a bomb, then blames the British for setting it off prematurely before it could kill British soldiers instead of civilians! What do IRA members want? Don't they know England wants what's best for Ireland?

Forget Oliver Cromwell massacring thousands, confiscating all land in Ulster and giving it to his soldiers; forget the potato famine of 1847-50 where 2 million starved while England exported tons of Irish grain and livestock; forget the Black and Tans of 1921-23 that slaughtered indiscriminately and gave new meaning to the word "barbaric"; forget the 1960s in Ulster when Irish were arrested without charge and imprisoned without trial; forget that in Ulster today, being a Nationalist means you can't get a job; forget about a United Ireland and self-determination; England knows what's best for Ireland! Damn the IRA!
