“The war is over: the good guys have lost.

IM not s/f bashing here but we can talk till the cows come home about outreach to unionism and reconciliation ex and thats all very fine and necessary in a post conflict situation and we have achieved our goals but as martin mcguinness said in his last public statement he tried all that and it was threw in his face and nationalists and republicans have got nothing from their part of goodfriday agreement but we give everything and more as our part of deal .the last i looked we are still occupied by britan, still discriminated against in most walks of life still have a bigoted unionist police force same diplock courts that sentenced republicans for the last 40 yrs, internment without trial.we are referred to as crocodiles who if you give something to want more ?give us what ?we only want what is rightfully our,s .our occupied 6 counties back and treated as equals in that setting .as someone who has spent 15 yrs in prison had family members murdered 4 brothers in prison at one time ,put our parents and family through hell and me my own wife and weans in later yrs. now meet the new generation of so called republicans who would barley say hallo to you and whose descendants you know were no where to be seen when you were targeted and murdered for being a s/f supporter or member .i now look back with no regrets whatsoever.and reflect on the yrs i wasnt in prison out of work unable to get work even from republicans as they could,nt have the mcglinchey name about the place,to the present and how we struggled to rear our children ,which thank god we did ,they studied hard and have good jobs.i look at the lives of other ex pows in the same boat and now over the past while i watch individuals who once were associated with the IRA and as a result are tied to us former vols and ex pow.s by our past associations shake hands with the foreign royals who occupy our land and you still pay taxes to for their lavish lifestyles life and raise toasts to their queen as she still gifts parts of our country to her gandson as a wedding present and who boasted of the number of people he murdered in foreign british wars while in the army.is this what the hooded men, blk men thousands of republicans went to prison for .the hunger strikers and vols of loughgall, cappagh ex,and all vols died for ?i can only guess their reply .but im certain there are thousands of republicans and ex com batons like myself that feel forgotten and to fend for ourselfs with our various problems and illnesses that gave and suffered so much during the past 40 yrs for a better future and unity must wonder what it was all for? .certainly not to shake the hands of any royals or to toast a foreign occupying queen in my name .the IRA vols were never defeated .the good guys and their supporters were just left behind and forgot about as in all war,s feeling betrayed when they watch individuals they once admired and respected grovel to the british royals and others .really sad and depressing to think this is what a once proud army of vols and supporters are reduced to throughout the world by association, and history will record us by ,the good guys lost

With many thanks to: Paul Mcglinchey for the origional posting.
