what about the IRA?...Ireland is a stone throw away from England....can we expect them to defend the British Isles?
I don't know. Haven't heard much from the IRA in recent years. Their cause was always against the English and their historical role in Ireland.
But I think Ireland also has a fairly large immigrant population and we don't hear much about it. Not sure how many Moslems are in Ireland.
Well I was entertaining a related thot-—Since the IRA guys are always itching for a fight maybe the Brits could re-arm them for the purpose of cleaning out all the Mooslime rat nests?
The IRA is ultra-Left (in fact, Communist) anti-Israel, and pro-moslem/Arab. It has been this way for decades. Qaddafi and the PLO trained, armed, and financed the IRA. Their publications and web sites are entirely anti-Israel and anti-American.
The old Fenians wanted a de-anglicized, "Gaelic" Ireland. Ironically, the same Gaelicism that excludes Anglo-Saxons includes moslems and other Third Worlders.
The IRA are against what they consider ‘British occupation’ of N Ireland. They are also in cahoots with some ME terrorist organizations. The IRA also got explosives sent to them from Lybia.
that is a good question!
