Only in the case of the IRA. The Provos were fighting for the cause of Irish freedom against an enemy who had occupied their nation for 800 years. The Brits have been responsible for literally millions of Irish deaths, and to this day the Catholics in the occupied Six Counties are treated as second-class citizens. For years, the Brits promised Sinn Fein a place in the gov't of the Six Counties if the Provos renounced violence. They did. Then, they decided the Provos needed to disarm. They did. Then, they decided the Provos needed to decommission their weapons. They did...guess what? Sinn Fein is still waiting for that seat. When it comes to Ireland, Britannia waives the rules.

The difference is that AL Quida wants to force their beliefs on everyone else!!!!The IRA just wanted some justice for their people.Timothy McVeigh was a white trash piece of crap!!!!

There is no difference. Well, the IRA traditionally attacked only military targets. Technically, the other two did also, but the amount of civilian deaths make it suspect.

Nope, not too fond of any of them. I read a book about McVeigh. He was seriously whacked in the head.

-No, hell no, that about sums it up, for me at least......LOL....who needs facts....they all kill...and are known for their killing, and Timothy McVeigh, is a scumbag and killed many children in that attack, and he was one of ours, dam what the hell does this sh-it to people, to gain all the hate and release it that way. There is always something to this irrational thinking...i.e. how they are programmed to think this way? who are the programmers when it is in-house like timothy Mc veigh?

There is no other factor outside of religion. However we have managed to demonize an entire culture based on that.
