Derry contradictions

Standard

One of the curious facts to note is at the time of the Siege of Derry the Catholics were loyalists and the Protestants were rebels.  No one disputed that James II was the rightful king when the siege commenced. Only after the Apprentice Boys slammed the gates in the face of the Red Shanks did the 1688 Revolution occur. The Protestant citizens rebelled against legitimate government.

The Continuity IRA claim to defend Ireland. The Crown Forces have not killed a single person in Northern Ireland for about 25 years! In that time how many people have republican killed? It is scores. Notwithstanding the Omagh Atrocity. Alleged drug dealers are killed without trial by republicans.
