Off the top of my head I'd say the people fighting in it? and often times civilians have to pick a side. Sometimes they think the conflict is justified. Think the american revolution and loyalists and shit

Personally, I try to be neutral, but lean more towards remaining in the UK which is what the IRA's opposers want, but I in no way support the UVF or loyalist paramilitary. Maybe soon they'll be legal organisations (this is actually what a lot of 'active' members want, not terrorism). But there are a good proportion of old, uneducated and backward sociopaths, they will never want to let go of the 'power' they once had, so it'll likely continue until they all die off. I say continue, I mean the one or two bombs that they set per year just to remind the police and government they are still hard men.

From what I've noticed, generally it depends on what area you grew up in, if you grew up loyalist theres more of a chance you'll be loyalist and likewise for nationalists. However, so many more people are opting to become just neutral and get on with it, in fact these people are probably now a majority, especially the generation thinking of university and stuff now, because they have the foresight to know they have to study hard and just get on with life, so they just dont have time to 'pick sides'. For example this year, during 'riot season' no riots took place, this is the first time in decades. Great progress.

Best thing to do is go find out for yourself! Local belfast folk are happy to answer any questions and show you around (don't go to a dodgy looking bar and ask dodgy looking folk, probably find out the hard way). There's great museums and tours man, plus all the titanic stuff, game of thrones stuff, and its a very musical and artistic city, and the best part, we fill pubs and bars from 11am onwards! There's so much to offer, you won't be disappointed.

my family did not teach me that. However they taught me some things which fuelled my own interest for research. Also I would like to drop this for one second to ask you something.
Apparently shits flaring up in the North again? And a new group are going around calling themselves the IRA? can you confirm?

There is several 'new' groups under the guise of the IRA, the continuity IRA seem to be causing quite a stir, while at other times the IRA (as in the most commonly known one, not the original though) have accepted responsibility for a few murders. An exact answer to that question would take time to figure out, as I'm sure the main group driving the military and police's' heightened risk of terrorism' have not yet come forward to accept responsibility, but yes tensions are rising, threats are being made.

This still doesn't correct your previous comments or make them become anymore true. All you had to do was ask, but you decided to hold on to it, no shame in chanign your opinion in light of new evidence.

m8 my family has lived in Ireland going all the way back. Im the first to NOT be born in Ireland, HOWEVER I am not by a nature a very patriotic person. That does NOT mean I have no understanding of what is essentially my own countres history

No, no, you do NOT understand. No sense arguing. If you're family have taught you this then they need to reevaluate themselves. What makes them expert anyway? Why do you trust them so much?
