There was a rather good programme on the BBC concerning “Bloody Friday” last evening. A lot of people have been talking about it, some seem genuinely shocked by the scale of the carnage that took place all those years ago.
“In Belfast on 21 July 1972, 22 bombs exploded in the space of eighty minutes, killing nine people, including two British soldiers, and injuring 130.”
I remember it well, although the media seems rather less exercised by such unbelievable savagery ..until now. I have a friend who was there on that day and who helped shovel body bits into bin bags. Well, I mean the victims had it coming after 800 years of oppression, right? Still, better late than never, right? So, I wonder WHO was the IRA leader in Belfast who gave the go ahead for this atrocity and where might he be today? Hell, would seem ideal, but some may fear that he and his chums have managed to avoid being apprehended and who know…they may even be rewarded.
Naturally, to the peace processors out there, it would unthinkable that the scum responsible for the slaughter on that day are brought to public justice. This shows the toxic corruption of the corrupt peace.
