Well, did he?
‘The troubles’ is such a British way calling whatever atrocities happened there.

Second time this week I’m reminded of one of my former history profs in this sub, who was British military intel.
He was primarily concerned in his intelligence role with the IRA. Even after his service in Belfast, he would still return from time to time to see how the city was changing, and he was never short of amazed, being able to walk the streets and eat in cafes where he once went armed and vigilant.
Really recommend Say Nothing by Patrick Radden Keefe about the rise of the provisional IRA and the murder of Jean McConville. I found it to be a very objective and grounded telling of historical events that have been heavily mythologized.
