What's another (Irish) life?
An interesting letter to The (London) Times on April 7th may have
escaped our readers' attention. Two very senior British Army officers
suugested that British soldiers are in Ireland to shoot Irish people
It was written by Generals Murray Naylor and David Scott-Barrett of
the Scots Guards, the organisers of the campaign to free Scots Guards
James Fisher and Mark Wright, who are serving a sentence for
murdering an unarmed teenager from Belfast's New Lodge, Peter
Fisher and Wright "both acted in good faith, in pursuit of an
operational policy laid down by the government" said the generals.
"To be condemned to to an interminable period for carrying out orders
seems to be grossly unfair."
Peter McBride was shot in the back.
