killing there own

A scene in the movie that struck me stronger than any other was the scene when the Irshmen in the IRA executed one of their own. Not only was he one of their own, but he was a young child. This shows the level of hatred between these two groups. They would kill their own, and a child, for the smallest release of information to the other side. The Irish were fighting for their land and they were going to do everything in their power to protect what was theirs. The Irish felt betrayed and they did what they thought was necessary, execution.

I agree with Mr. Randall. This goes along with what I was saying about the Irish stubbornness. Even though this was a teenage boy, it was no exception to the rule. Whatever means necessary were being taken to keep the IRA from collasping, for the fight for freedom was the ultimate and most sacred treasure of the Irishmen. This just goes to show how important it is for someone to have a country to call their own. Without that ability you are lost and lose all identity. In the movie it strikes fear and creates unity within the Irish community. In the movie we see both clashing creating further problems.
