In the early 20th century the Irish Republican Movement had a different meaning and cause.
Since the 1960s the cause that this scum had was crime. They were only interested in crime and earning money from robberies and drug dealing. They victimized members of the Police and Armed Forces to keep up the charade of freedom fighters. The same ploy was used by criminals on the so called Loyalist side.
Let’s get one thing straight Adams and his cronies had nothing to do with peace. The troubles came to an abrupt halt because since 2001 Terrorism has been seen in a different light in America and the people that once bank rolled terror by making collections in bars now saw things in a different light.
The terrorists saw that their funding was being hit and that their biggest supporters were now turning against them and so decided to jump on the peace process.
An apology from this group would be worthless
