Still, the American PEOPLE sponsered terrorisom in England for over 30 yrs and Britain is still the USAs strongest ally.

Now that is a stupid statement. The American people as a whole certainly did NOT support the IRA's tactics. I for one was horrified by what they did, no matter the justification. And for the record, I am part Irish on my mother's side. Many Americans were reviled by their tactics. And, as Cord said, our government did NOT support the IRA's tactics at all.

Don't lump us all together, jack.
