General discussion / Re: Sinn Fein? They have gone away, you know.
« on: January 23, 2015, 09:36:42 PM »
Sinn Fein have long ago realised that it doesn't matter what U turns they do, or no matter how much money they steal from us taxpayers, the sheep will follow them blindly to the election booths and keep them in power. Nothing they do surprises me and many others anymore. Sadly too many others havn't copped onto them yet.

GAA Discussion / Conor Gormley retires
« on: January 01, 2015, 01:20:14 PM »
Conor Gormley has become the latest Tyrone legend to bow out of inter-county football having confirmed his retirement to manager Mickey Harte.

Gormley was part of Tyrone's first All-Ireland winning side of 2003 and won further titles in '05 and '08.

He follows Stephen and O'Neill and Martin Penrose in bowing out after the attacking duo made their intentions known to quit in November.

Gormley, 34, carved out a career as a no-nonsense defender and was regularly Harte's go-to guy in terms of man-marking jobs on the opposition's blue chip forwards.

He will probably be best remembered for what was effectively a match-winning block on Armagh's Stephen McDonnell in the 2003 All-Ireland final.

Palestine to join International Criminal Court

Decision could clear way for filing of war crimes case but may trigger harsh Israeli response

Tax breaks for the rich businesses from the pockets of the poor and a blind eye turned to our real issues.  But hey the gravy train will keep on rolling and the MLA noses will be further entrenched deep in ripping us taxpayers off.

Horrific attack all right but they aren't the only ones murdering children on a grand scale.

Bill Clinton imposed sanctions on Iraq that led to the deaths of 500, 000 people, the majority of them children and he gets a red carpet welcome practically everywhere he goes.

 Bush and Blair have the blood of a million on their hands, and Israel mass murders children for fun without hardly a whisper from the west.

Maybe I'm being a little naive but to me the difference here is that these b**tards carried out this atrocity on purpose whereas Clinton, etc were trying to make things better whether they made major mistakes or not.

There is really no in between here. Children were killed in 2 different circumstances.

Yesterday in horrific circumstances, and via the US and the UK, a long slow death.

If you think Clinton was trying to make things better then you are way of the mark.

The deaths of 500,000 due to his sanctions is not a major mistake. It's genocide. There's a big difference

Madeleine Albright in an interview with 60 minutes said "the deaths of 500,000 Iraqi children was worth it"

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x4PgpbQfxgo

How outraged would we be if a Taliban fighter apperared on TV and said the deaths of those children was worth it?

If you get a chance, read this article by John Pilger who witnessed the slow deaths of children in Iraq due to brutal sanctions imposed by the US and the UK via a corrupt UN Security Council.

I wish that people could simply acknowledge this atrocity for what it is and not politicize it.

GHD you are all right but ffs there is a time and a place, a right thread and a wrong thread to push your anti American agenda, this thread should have been left alone imho.

For a man so concerned about the Palestinians you never even mentioned the loss of the lives these children, I would imagine it was because you were simply too keen to get to the yank bashing!!!
Stew it's failed politics that played a part in this massacre. 
There is global outrage at this attack yet during the summer when 500 children were killed in Gaza the same people stayed silent. Today 50, 000 children are living in shelter and are refused any building materials by Israel,  with thefull support of the West.
Sadly we live in a world where the media play a major role in telling us where and when we should be outraged.  All children and adults fof that matter should have a right to go to school without fear and be treated equally.  Sadly we don't live in that kind of world as history has proved that depending on who is killed and by whom the outrage is always different. This attack and the attacks on the schools in Gaza during the summer is a prime example.

evil scum. Poor children. Dixie, you are beyond contempt.

Is there any difference between a US Drone strike that killed 69 children or this attack today?

You are do blind its scary.

When a us drone kills 69 and you post up here about it, do you temper that by reminding us that the Taliban also killed 130 children? Answer= no you don't. Now take your yank bashing to another thread you sad git.

Thisw is a good video of Colin McRae driving the Jordan F1 car at Silverstone, and Martin Brundle driving Mcrae's WRC Subaru

On topic, the SPOTY awards has turned into an X Factor type show. McIlroy was miles ahead of Hamilton, but it was
down to Hamiltons recent success that clinched it. Good entertainment for a couple of hours on a Sunday night.

A great article by Max Blumenthal who is in Gaza and interviewed Palestinians who were used by Israel as human shields as they went on a murderous rampage

Borris Becker at a hotel bar on Miami. Had a beer with Marcus Latrell-Lone Survivor-at a conference where he was the guest speaker. Got my picture taken with Enda Kenny last year. Used to meet The leader of the Seanad all the time when he and his wife owned a chipper in Castlebar

You're lucky you didn't meet Borris in the broom cupboard Whitey    ;)
