To your point: A very small portion of Irish American funneled gun money to Sinn Fein / IRA..70s - 90s however it mostly outlawed now.
My point exactly Pete,you throw around stuff about "thanks for the shoe bomber", yeah,a few looney immigrants who happen to live in the UK as oppossed to say,working as a Doctor in the US Army, decided to try and murder people on trans atlantic flights,flights that were crammed with British people too and you throw that at Brits in general,so,as stupid as if I had said I accussed "all" Americans of funding terrorism,or that it was still legal to do so. I cant remember it being legal this side of the pond,either to fund terrorism or to strap bombs to your shoes or your nuts.
..It does seem that an awful lot of terrorists are escaping your people's usually exacting eyes here of late and if I was you b@stards I'd peak in on the mosques a little more often.
agreed,but we have tighter restrictions on reporting security matters over here. Where as the CIA and FBI are compelled under freedom of information our MI5 and MI6 are still far more hush hush. With britain undoubtedly being a hub point for some muslims it stands to reason that there are so many on going operations that cant be reported , I guess what Im saying is,and of course if you want to get back to us being childish again,that the ones you hear about being stopped are maybe only the tip of the ice berg of how many terrorist acts are stopped. But lets face it,for every terrorist with a british passport I can point you to one with US citizenship,Times square wasnt some brit from bradford was it.
We take the p1ss out of each other but we ,our countries and our army's are both fighting the same fanatics and ocasionally those fanatics have got through and killed in both our countries. I could give a damn about the so called 2special relationship" as little as you do for it,but when we we both share the same problems and potential enemies it does come across as petty to start pointing out what colour/color passport X Y Z muslim lunatic carried?
