Following on from Jo's post on The thousands of Irish lives, destroyed by Westminster
This will build to a list of known and suspected Westminster British Terrorists
acts of murder, of mass murder and terrorist bombings in the latter part of the 20th Century Ireland.
The world now knows about certain British crimes against humanity in Ireland, such as Bloody Sunday and the mass murder of innocent Irish civilians by the forces of Crown Westminster.
Some know of another mass murder of innocent Irish civilians by the forces of Crown Westminster at BallyMurphy.
But there were many more British terrorist atrocities that served to brutalize generations of Irish people.
To many Irish people and of course all the victims, these British forces who committed these crimes, whether masked or not, were British terrorists.
And after all, apart that one might get a medal and officially paid to murder and terrorize people, what is the difference between terrorist murderers among the UDA or UVF or UDR or SAS or regular British army?
They all kill on behalf of British nationalism and their Queen.
She decorates some and pretends others don't exist by never once condemning her loyalists and british terrorists in public!
It has proven extremely difficult for the families of Irish victims to bring to justice those British Terrorists that were PAYE salaried by the Crown
It is time that British people were made aware of what that their forces actually did in their name, how their tax money perversely caused a lot of the troubles in Ireland!
Time that Westminster owned up and stated that their forces often behaved just like insane evil Terrorists, they are so quick to define and condemn when foreign.
There should be no more trying to excuse or place in some supposed context their own Terrorists. These British terrorists were murderers, they were terrorists full stop.
They tortured people in Ireland!
This following list will include as many that are known of those terrorist acts carried out by British terrorist groups in Ireland, such as the UVF and UDA.
Also terrorists acts carried out by members of Crown forces whether UDR regular British army, or RUC and B Specials.
Just because someone wears a uniform or is paid by some nation, does not mean that they are not terrorists.
One mans terrorist is another's freedom fighter and vice versa.
Terrorists acts meaning = any use of violence to impose a political will over another.
Dictionary. terrorism Definitions
systematic use of violence and intimidation to achieve some goal
the act of terrorizing
the state of being terrorized
So British soldiers for example, who used terror and violence to impose the will of Westminster, are by literal definition Terrorists
and are by any fair and impartial definition!
The British terrorists acts in the recent troubles in Ireland are so many, that this list will take some time and so will be a ongoing project.

McGurk's Pub Bombing
Fifteen Irish civilians were killed when British terrorists exploded a bomb at The Tramore Bar, better known as McGurk's bar, in North Queen Street, north Belfast. The bomb had been planted by the British terrorists Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF). Four of those killed were women (including the owner's wife and 14 year old daughter). [This attack was one of the worst single incidents during the Northern Ireland conflict. Only one of the bombers, the driver of the getaway car, was ever convicted. Immediately after the bombing, and for some time later, the British security forces and various official sources maintained that the bomb had gone off inside the bar, implying that it was being prepared by the Irish Republican Army (IRA) and thus represented an 'own goal'.]

on in the Springhill estate in west Belfast, the north of Ireland. Five Irish civilians were killed by British Army terrorist snipers who were in a timber yard.
British Army terrorists took up sniping positions in Corry's timber yard and reinforced them with sandbags. Two cars pulled into Springhill and the snipers fired two shots at them. One of the cars fled while the other drove a short distance and stopped, the occupants got out and the snipers opened fire again, One occupant was shot in the back of the head and was seriously wounded. A resident rushed to help the injured man but was immediately shot in the arm. The man's brother and his friend ran to the downed occupant but both were shot by the snipers. At some point during this time a 13-year-old girl was fatally shot by the British army snipers. The parish priest and a passer-by (the priest was waving a white cloth) rushed to her but a British army sniper killed both with a single bullet that passed through both their heads. All the Irish victims were unarmed.
