The art work maybe good, but what happend in the late 60s and the 70s was NOT good. Ask the families of those who died (catholic, protestant and soldiers).

Before you praise the artwork think about the many thousands of people who were murdered by these thugs.

The people in the procession suspected they were military and attacked the car. An army helicopter was tracking the event. They smashed the windows and dragged both men from the car. Both guys were later found stripped tied and tortured. Single shot in the back of the head.

So to me, Thrillkill, this is not Art its bloody advertising for these murderous thugs. Someday it will be accepted as Art but not until people who suffered in Ulster are long dead.

And in saying this I speak, not just for the soldiers who suffered but for both Catholics and Protestants and their families who suffered.

Please think before you make posts that are totally offensive to others.

But...It's his most endearing quality.

Eric, while I am sorry for what happened to your friends and can't begin to imagine what your experience in that area and time was like, there is no way that we can carry on as we do here without stepping on someone's life experiences.

My wife's sister has been in a vegetative state for over 5 years. Her two small boys have grown up with their mother at home in a bed or wheelchair. She lives under her body's own power but there is no intelligent brain activity.

When the Terry Schiavo jokes and pics roll out as they did recently, I feel it but I understand that it is not posted with a mean heart. It's just a joke. If it struck me funny, I'd probably even comment on it, myself. Otherwise, I just let it pass.

Feel free to tell me to bugger off.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

Chapman's death occurred one day before the 20th anniversary of the first broadcast of Flying Circus; Terry Jones called it “the worst case of party-pooping in all history".

So Brits still believe driving on the left is the correct behavior and it was all the conspiracy of the evil Napoleon Bonapart that made the rest of the world to drive on the right.

Dunno bro.

As long as I am not driving a tank, I will comply with the traffic laws of the country, whatever that country may be.
