ATW contributor David Graham has this to say on Saville….
The Saville report has won plaudits from left wingers and liberals throughout the world. Hypocrites are requesting British soldiers are put in the dock, whilst their communities vote en masse for convicted terrorists like McGuiness, Adams and Doherty. Can anyone else see the irony?
Lord Saville has allegedly made JK Rowling jealous with his perfect blend of fantasy and fiction- however; it seems the bad guys have got away. The joyous scenes of Martin ‘It wasn’t me’ McGuiness and Conor ‘Time Bomb’ Murphy jumping around like Duracell bunnies on Ecstasy would have been laughable- had the circumstances not been so sickening.
The obvious disgruntlement from Unionist camps has been ignored by the media, to no surprise I should add. Unionists are obviously disgusted and with great reason too. Droppin Well, Kingsmill, Teebane, Omagh, Darkley and the Shankill are only some of the events which have led to no convitions, no money spent on ‘independent enquires’- all still unsolved crimes. At the time of writing, William Frazer is handing in a legal writ to the High Court, I wish him all the best.
However, I feel Unionism has overlooked the main problem with Saville. There have been lame calls from Unionist leaders for Martin ‘Machine Gun’ McGuiness to answer for his part in Bloody Sunday. Calls to have McGuiness in the dock are merely empty words- why would the Unionist government take a stand and destroy their love-in with terrorism? Simple- no Sinn Fein/IRA- no sex,power and money. (Politicians tick whichever box applies)
The main Unionist parties fail to admit that the political circumstances that they have created have allowed Saville to inflict pain on the many innocent victims of the troubles. Saville is a continuation of Sinn Feins ‘cleansing’of the Crown Forces in Ulster. Saville will propagandise another generation of Republicans against the Police and Army. Sinn Fein allegedly supports Policing and Justice- a great victory for the DUP! Michael Collins slaughtered crown forces in the early 1900’s, McGuiness continued during ‘The Troubles’ and now so called ‘Dissidents’ continue the Republican ideology of ‘blood sacrifice’ and violent revolution to this very day.
Saville, like the Belfast Agreement and its bastard child St Andrews show how the British Government continues to bend and break under Republican/ Socialist pressure. It also highlights the fundamental issue in Northern Ireland; weak Unionist leadership is failing to defend our rights as loyal British citizens. Saville was a waste of taxpayers money whilst it failed to address the full issue- The IRA had murdered 86 people in 1971, The IRA were active and engaged on Bloody Sunday, the IRA had already murdered 8 people in the opening weeks of 1972. Saville also overlooks the fact the IRA murdered 497 people in 1972, Saville is a perversion of History.
The DUP should stand down from government until McGuiness is put on trial for his part in Bloody Sunday and other atrocities. The Saville Report has been forced upon the innocent victims of Northern Ireland by a weak British Government, a Republican propaganda machine but most of all- a failing Unionist leadership. Saville demonstrates that devolved government with unrepentant terrorists produces Unionist failures. We cannot continue to reward terrorists yet lament about how we have ‘defeated the IRA.’ Unionist leaders are continuing to attempt to over up their failings.
We all know the IRA are still active albeit under various Pseudonyms. Saville has underlined how the British government and Unionist leaders have allowed brave British soldiers to be put under scrutiny whilst Northern Ireland is still organised and terrorised by paramilitary godfathers. Intelligence reports suggest ‘Dissident activity’ is at an all time high. Border police stations are regularly targeted whilst Republican godfathers continue to ‘police the streets’ in stronghold areas like Strabane. Bomb alerts, death threats and continued revolutionising of the younger generations are the order of the day. I beseech the Unionist leadership to not ignore the fundamental flaws of sitting in government with unrepentant terrorists.
The so-called ‘Dissidents’ are former IRA members who continue to carry the Republican ideology of Sinn Fein through terrorist means. They use the expertise of the IRA terrorists which has also been passed on to FARC,Hamas and ETA. Intelligence reports suggest they are using weapons procured by the IRA and it is only a matter of time until another murder.
How can Unionist leaders justify sitting in government with the godfathers of terror? We all will admit we live in an ‘artificial peace’ in Northern Ireland. Northern Ireland devolved government is continuing to fail the Unionist people of Northern Ireland- Saville proves this. Until Unionist leaders understand that words are not enough then we will continue to experience dark days like the physical violence of Masareene and the political ramifications of Saville., Now is the time for Unionist leaders to stand up and oppose Sinn fein/IRA in government. In the words of ‘The second in command of the IRA’ in Londonderry- ‘We haven’t gone away you know.’
