Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans
This page has been set up so that veterans of Operation Banner can voice our complete dismay at the betrayal we are now facing. The Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans group is specifically dedicated to the support of our brothers and sisters who signed blank cheques for our lives in a forgotten war that successive British Governments have been too embarrassed to acknowledge. No one wants to admit that we fought a vicious war against the IRA on British soil, under instructions from the UK government.
Is this proper justice?
Dennis Hutchings is being prosecuted
in Northern Ireland for a shooting that took place in 1971. The incident
mistakenly took the life of a mentally disabled man who was unarmed. In

earlier. The patrol believed that the man they shot was about to initiate a
There is no price worth paying that costs our sense of decency. There is no price that justifies the betrayal of men who placed themselves bravely between two warring factions to keep the peace. There is no level of appeasement that will satisfy murdering gangsters.
The British Government might claim that there is peace in Northern Ireland thanks to the Good Friday Agreement. There is not peace in Northern Ireland there is only the cessation of extreme violence. A large proportion of the criminals released under the GFA have already returned to prison for new crimes. Criminal armed gangs control all vice in the province including money laundering, drug sales and bookmaking. Armed criminals control most of the routes across the north to south border and use that control to avoid tax and vat on goods moved from Eire. The police are powerless to intervene due to a lack of political will.
The trial of Dennis Hutchings is a political trial that has been pursued for the sole purpose of convincing the post GFA generation that the British Armed forces occupied Northern Ireland and brutally suppressed the Catholic population. One conviction of one old soldier will be enough for them to say ‘We told you so’ they will use this deviant propaganda to further their cause for domination of the Government of Northern Ireland and then use the conviction as justification for more prosecutions. They don’t want justice they want revenge at any cost and they want the head of Dennis Hutchings as a trophy that they can carry on a pike at the head of their sectarian marches.
If Dennis Hutchings is convicted the cowardly acquiescence of the British Government will have led to a gross miscarriage of justice. Any peace gained will be punished tenfold in the future when further political prosecutions are called for. Sinn Fein IRA murdered more members of the security forces than any other enemy since the Korean War.
The IRA never released any prisoners. Those that they captured were terribly tortured and then murdered. The IRA tarred and feathered young women who flirted with soldiers and murdered all who were suspected of giving information to the police. They shot their own people through the knees if they strayed from their criminal laws. Sinn Fein/IRA operates in several guises that give them plausible deniability for continuing extortion and murders. Real IRA/ Continuity IRA/INLA/Official IRA, it makes no difference they are all part of an organised crime gang.
I would rather return to the days of terror in Northern Ireland than sacrifice the good people of the province to the control of gangsters. I would rather return to the streets and fight injustice than allow criminal gangsters to control the country. I would rather take the battle back to the terrorist than sacrifice another former soldier on the cross of St Patrick in the name of so called PEACE!
The next time Dennis Hutchings goes to court I call on the armed forces to down tools in protest. I am calling for a sick day or a sick week. Servicemen and women cannot be punished for reporting sick. This case deserves the attention of all ranks, Generals, Colonels, Non-commissioned officers and all other ranks. This case goes to the heart of the relationship between Government and Armed Forces. When servicemen cannot rely on the people who send them to war to protect their interests against terrorists then that government no longer deserves the right to command an army.
