And let me tell you something: I've had enough of Irish Americans who haven't been back to their country in twenty or thirty years come up to me and talk about the resistance, the revolution back home; and the glory of the revolution, and the glory of dying for the revolution - fuck the revolution! They don't talk about the glory of killing for the revolution. What's the glory in taking a man from his bed and gunning him down in front of his wife and his children? Where's the glory in that? Where's the glory in bombing a Remembrance Day parade of old age pensioners, their medals taken out and polished up for the day? Where's the glory in that? To leave them dying, or crippled for life, or dead, under the rubble of the revolution that the majority of the people in my country don't want. No more! Sing no more!— Bono.
One of the bigger issues I have see with the Pro IRA Americans (have they ever been to Ireland? or read of its history? or are they just joining the bandwagon)
Why won't they let go of Ireland?
Other identity markers used to be the colour of the barns in the countryside, you could see at a glance whether you were driving through a loyalist or a republican landscape. Don't know if that is still the case.
