If I tell you, do you promise not to dispatch a goon squad upon me? I see that you are from Ireland, and my comments were not intended to offend. This forum seems to be one where people can speak freely, and there does not seem to be any limit to the amount of abuse visited upon my country.

I live a few minutes from Philadelphia, but I have plenty of British/Irish connections (most of my aunts, uncles, cousins) live in Ireland and Britain and we visit each other regularly. I also attended university in England for one year (the rest in USA).

Now your turn. Are you in Dublin, and do you work in the world of finance? I have imagined that you are sitting on a pile of family money and spend your time managing it. You are expert at finding detailed articles on finance and politics. I do not always agree with what you write, but you obviously stay well-informed.

I agree with Knuckle. "The Troubles" is too polite, in phrasing. When it comes to the murders and terror, which have plagued Northern Ireland for decades.

Calling it 'The Troubles' has never really bothered me, even though I can clearly see how it is not quite the apt term for it, but I would be lying if I said it did. Anyone have any insight on who coined the term 'The Troubles'?

I don't know who coined the phrase. But, I was reading the Belfast News on the internet and The Real IRA has threatened to kill Martin McGunniess. I know. I just spelled his last name wrong. Anyway, he holds the highest Catholic office in the power sharing government.

Like I said when this was first brought up, if you are dumb enough to join the IRA and then in turn spy on them... Well you know.
