Just as a matter of interest, does the "flags and emblems" legislation deal with the burning of flags as well as their display? And what does it say about "emblems" like "KAT"? Surely signs like this are illegal? Or do they get away with it because it's intentionally ambiguous - i.e. they could claim it means "Kerry Are Tops" or something? Just wondering how it's seen "up there".

Classic! I must ask the local hoods where I live if it means Kerry or Kilkenny are Tops.

Above all, who is it that is actually setting off no-warning car bombs in Iraq on a daily basis, or forming the death squads who are slaying thousands in revenge? (Think Iraqi Muslim Sunnis for the former and Iraqi Musim Shiites for the latter).


This is what I can't understand.  How can these insurgants (sp??) carry out revenge attacks for deaths on Muslims by actually killing other Muslims?

These Muslims aren't carrying out these attacks in "revenge" for US/UK air raids etc - it has gone far beyond that. Essentially, as a nation, Iraq is/was a somewhat artificial construct of the West, attempting to unite, as it did, a complex mixture of Sunnis, Shiites, Kurds, Tribes, numerous  Minorities etc.

Whilst Saddam was in charge, he maintained a form of unity by repression, cunning, oil wealth and secularism. Since he was overthrown and the Coalition failed miserably to replace the old system with an effective alternative (whether democratic or repressive), the country is breaking down into total anarchy.

In such circumstances, evil extremists of every stripe are moving in to fight over the remains. To be honest, as disturbing, horrific and baffling as it all seems to us, I don't feel Irish people should ever get too "superior" about this (not saying you are, btw). That is, we demonstrated exactly the same capacity for (so-called) "religious" strife as demonstrated in Iraq (just replace "Christians" for "Muslims").

Indeed, it could be argued that we were just luckier in not being so numerous, plus lacking oil and greedy neighbours intent on sizing their share etc. Above all, we had 30,000 British soldiers available to "hold the ring" whilst the restless natives eventually came to the conclusion that their sordid, little campaigns of inter-communal strife were utterly futile, and it might be better to try to get along... >:(

Geez. Why would you want to ever consider yourself british EG? From what you have written above its obvious the british are cnuts. Get out now and save yourself.

General discussion / A real nice proof

Proof that 1 = 0.9999999....

Consider that 1/3 = 0.333333....

then multiply each side by 3

3 * 1/3 = 3 * 0.333333...

and so, hey presto!

1 = 0.99999....

Q.E.D.

General discussion / Re: Flags in lurgan
« on: July 03, 2007, 02:19:31 PM »
Can I just ask, why is it that these tricolours were put up.

Putting up Union Flags and bunting at this time of the year in Lurgan is usual and they are taken down after the 12th, but the tricolours at this time of the year are unprecendented.

Dare I say that certain republicans only wanted to provoke a reaction so that they would have an excuse to feel oppressed.... :o

Pathetic.
