Bloody Sunday: Paras ‘betrayed’ over arrest of former soldier

Paratroopers who opened fire on rioters on Bloody Sunday feel “betrayed” after a former soldier was held on suspicion of murder and police warned of more arrests to follow.

The 66-year-old ex-Lance Corporal became the first member of the British armed forces to be arrested by detectives investigating the deaths of 14 men at a protest march in Londonderry in 1972.

    Considering British and Irish history, I do believe that it is possible for hostilities to flare up again under the right circumstances.

    Just because an active volcano isn’t erupting at the moment, doesn’t mean that it won’t in the future…

    Britain is busy eating itself, while it ignores the genocidal threat posed to all the indigenous peoples by the muslim invasion.

      And they took the step to make sure all their citizens are all disarmed.

    Yet Gerry Adams has yet to be jailed.

      Who was Gerry Adams? I can’t seem to make sense of who the various figures were in the mess of the North Ireland troubles.

        Leader of the revoting ones/Sinn Fein, who had a penchant for ordering the murders of various ‘enemies’.

        Cheers

          Goes to show that all the fault lines in Ireland are still there.

    This is insanity.
