What a stupid divisive comment-so you want bombs!
Then you state God can judge us- Well maybe you should educate yourself abut what was said by God.

Matthew 5:21–22
Anger
21 y“You have heard that it was said to those of old, z‘You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable ato judgment.’ 22 But I say to you that beveryone who is angry with his brother3 will be liable ato judgment; whoever insults4 his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says,‘You fool!’ will be liable to cthe hell5 of fire.

In his book Late Victorian Holocausts, published in 2001, Mike Davis tells the story of the famines which killed between 12 and 29 million Indians(1). These people were, he demonstrates, murdered by British state policy.

of the Genocide in Ireland
IrishHolocaust.org
04.03.2008

Is Britain’s cover-up of its 1845-1850 holocaust in Ireland the most successful lie in all of history?

Consider: why does Irish President Mary Robinson call it “Ireland’s greatest natural disaster” while she conceals the British army’s role? Potato blight,“phytophthora infestans”, did spread from America to Europe in 1844, to England and then Ireland in 1845 but it didn’t cause famine anywhere. Ireland did not starve for potatoes; it starved for food.

Ireland starved because its food, from 40 to 70 shiploads per day, was removed at gunpoint by 12,000 British constables reinforced by the British militia, battleships, excise vessels, Coast Guard and by 200,000 British soldiers (100,000 at any given moment) The attached map shows the never-before-published names and locations in Ireland of the food removal regiments (Disposition of the Army; Public Record Office, London; et al, of which we possess photocopies). Thus, Britain seized from Ireland’s producers tens of millions of head of livestock; tens of millions of tons of flour, grains, meat, poultry & dairy products; enough to sustain 18 million persons.

Before the advent of water craft the british isles were a peninsula attached to current day france. Seeing the nut cases that lived on the peninsula the Franks dug what today is known as the English Channel. Unfortunately, technology led to the development of water craft and that released the spread of the nut cases that have posted prior to this one.

In the same way black people were urged to "whiten their complexions" during the US civil rights turmoil half a century ago, Catholics in Scotland are in danger of being forced to turn their backs on faith schooling and shun public statements about their religion, it has been claimed.

The comparison has been made by the Catholic Church's spokesman Peter Kearney, who also believes Scotland must confront sectarianism in the same way it deals with domestic violence – and not blame the victim.

In a letter in today's Herald, he also claims the main "proponents of anti-Catholic intolerance" were the champions of secularism, rather than from the "militantly Protestant quarters" of the early-1980s, adding that bigotry was something learned in the home and the streets and not a product of the education system.

His calls come after the Scottish Government's anti-bigotry czar, Dr Duncan Morrow, said the problem of sectarianism in Scotland was not simply "a ned issue", and added that political, social, historic and cultural factors were as much a part of bigotry as religious faith.

Claiming it was a Scotland-wide issue not confined to football, Dr Morrow also said there were frequent claims of "embedded anti-Catholicism that isn't going away in Scotland", while also warning against a culture of victimhood and championing the idea of shared campuses for schools.

Mr Kearney, citing Crown Office statistics showing Catholics are more likely to be offended against, said: "I am certain that many voices will join this debate, bringing with them a blame-the-victim mindset.

Question Taken at the January 19, 2012 Daily Press Briefing
January 20, 2012
Share on facebookShare on twitter
QUESTION: Does the U.S. take a position on the recent posturing between the United Kingdom and Argentina over the Falklands?

ANSWER: This is a bilateral issue that needs to be worked out directly between the governments of Argentina and the United Kingdom. We encourage both parties to resolve their differences through dialogue in normal diplomatic channels.

We recognize de facto United Kingdom administration of the islands but take no position regarding sovereignty.

There's no such thing as "Irish American", and he was certainly against Argentine imperialism.
