    Do they have a militia at least organized? The first Dail was backed up with guns. If they don't they are either incredibly stupid or incredibly naïve.

    That's a very good point. The Spanish will have to be beaten by force. Likewise the Scots will never get their independence unless they're willing to fight for it.

    A good rule of thumb in politics is never say anything you aren't prepared to back up with force. We will see by the end of this week whether this is just political theatre or something serious. Over playing your hand in life like poker is not smart.

    This fellow is just complaining like a sissy. I think the crowd outside are listening to his pathetic speech in dismay.

    I never thought they would do it now. The Spanish have an army, these guys don't. End of this chapter anyhow.

    Long term you start sending in troops and batter people over the head, you instill a sense of venom and that is never forgotten.

    Oh, The grand old Duke of York,
    He had ten thousand men;
    He marched them up to the top of the hill,
    And he marched them down again.

    It is to soon to say- there is a lot of truth in the Ulster proverb; "talk softly and keep your gun loaded and at the ready".

    Just goes to show you how much balls those leaders of 1916 had, true heroes and real men and women.

    Well, it doesn't seem like they have any loaded gun. Not yet anyway.

    Absolutely. And it was much harder do it then - when you knew the only answer you'd get was bullets and bombs.
