Thread Name: BS: True IRA ?? Who are they ?
Subject: RE: BS: True IRA ?? Who are they ?
I did not say wrong was on one side only.
I have not criticised or even mentioned any action of PIRA
I have not challenged the many views expressed that I disagree with.
I have not defended the army.
I have not discussed the origins of all these disputes.

In the above posts I have been criticised for each of those and more.

I did correct what I thought was a simple error of fact, that I thought significant.
For that I am branded combatative, blinkered, etc., etc.

If I was wrong I will withdraw and grovel.
I thought that SDLP did not eclipse Sinn Fein until the cease fire.

If I am right, it is my detractors who are blinkered.

So which is it? The voting figures are available, and I have posted them before.

Perhaps I missed some.

I am not interested in having one of the old slanging matches.
I just want to understand the dissidents' motivations.
Please stop telling me how bad I am and just correct my single mistake if that is what it is.
