  Irish War of Independence - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
To purist Irish Republicans, the Irish War of Independence war had begun with the Proclamation of the Irish Republic during the Easter Rising of 1916.
Republicans argued that the conflict of 1919-21 (and indeed the subsequent Irish Civil War) was the defence of this Republic against attempts to destroy it.
The IRA, as the 'army of the Irish Republic', was perceived by members of Dáil Éireann to have a mandate to wage war on the Dublin Castle British administration headed by the Lord Lieutenant running Ireland.

In the first case, the Irish, the new state (now The Republic of Ireland) comprised 26 of the 32 counties on the island of Ireland, the remaining 6 continuing within the UK as the province of Northern Ireland.
In the Irish and Chechen Wars of Independence the war ended with the unilateral withdrawal of the state’s forces when the state realized that victory in the conventional sense was unattainable and continuance meant high costs without any return.

 The Irish Civil War, 1922-1923 by Paul V. Walsh - A NYMAS Fulltext Resource
By the standards of the 'Great War' it was very small indeed; roughly 3,000 deaths were inflicted over a period of eleven months, probably less than the average casualties suffered on the Western Front during a quiet week.
By the end of the war, however, acts, official or otherwise, were being committed by both sides that would have been unthinkable at its outbreak.
It is tempting to attribute this emphasis on mobility to a tradition in Irish warfare of relying on lightly armed soldiers, and the use of 'Flying Columns' in the War of Independence is certainly consistent with such a tradition.

 War Of Independence Debate On Sectarianism Descends On Unassuming Offaly - Indymedia Ireland
Britain went to war against the Irish government established by the 1918 elections, and the Irish democracy was defended by its volunteer armed forces, who, for historical reasons were committed to an ideology which sought to transcend the distinction between settler and native within a common national sentiment.
In addition, the Irish Republican side was well represented by individual Protestants in prominent positions, as detailed by historian Brian Murphy recently in his account of the non-sectarian trajectory of Republican policy and practice during the War of Independence.
The revisionist historians argue that the IRA was sectarian during the War of Independence.

The Iraq War (2003-present) is an ongoing conflict in Iraq [1], which began with the 2003 invasion of Iraq that resulted in the defeat of Iraq's Hussein-led regular military forces, the capture of all major Iraqi cities and of Saddam Hussein.
After the 1991 Gulf War, U.N. Resolutions were passed to impose sanctions on the Saddam regime until it was verified that their Weapons of Mass Destruction were destroyed.
The first calls for war on Iraq came from the Project for the New American Century (PNAC), and the American Enterprise Institute, with arguments based largely on the alleged threat that Saddam posed to American interests in the region, and the project of American influence into the next century.

The period has filled plenty of history books in the 80 years since, and was given the blockbuster treatment nine years ago in the movie Michael Collins.

Coincidentally, perhaps its publication commemorates the birth of Saorstat Eireann [Irish Free State], the first meeting of Dail Eireann, January 1921 and the Anglo-Irish Treaty signed on December 6th, 1921.
The Government of Ireland Act of the 23rd December of 1920, providing for two subordinate Irish Parliaments north and south and a Council of Ireland to cater for common interests, preceded the Anglo-Irish Treaty.
Few historians seem to be able to put a terminal date to the civil war but the five-month break between the ending of the war of independence in July 1921 and the outbreak of civil war following the Treaty in December that same year often confuse the untutored in contemporary Irish history.

 BBC NEWS | Northern Ireland | Movie set to reignite civil war debate
Award-winning and radical film director Ken Loach's latest film in production is about the Irish War of Independence and Civil War - and it is likely to ignite intense debate about a brutal period in Irish history, says BBC NI's Diarmaid Fleming.
Loach says the film has relevance today, both in the portrayal of an army of occupation - which he says resonates with the war in Iraq - and in examining the legacy of the Treaty which ended the civil war and created the border.
Loach went to local units of the Irish army reserve to recruit volunteers to play military roles, and the cast includes many who had relations involved in the fighting more than 80 years ago.

 The Luck of the Irish - In the movies, IRA terrorists become dashing heroes. By James Surowiecki
And Neil Jordan's Michael Collins (1996) sympathetically portrayed Collins and his comrades in the 1918-1921 Irish war for independence from Britain--a war won in part by Collins' strategy of bombings and late-night assassinations.
Yet all these films are suffused with a sense of the basic justice of the Irish nationalist cause and, more than that, of the purity of the motives that drive the IRA.
Northern Ireland was split off from the rest of the country in 1921, as part of the peace agreement that ended the Irish war for independence (an agreement negotiated by Michael Collins).

Irrespective of one’s views of whether in the heat of battle a definitive view can be formed on a false surrender or on whether ‘sectarianism’ can be adduced as a motive for the Bandon-Dunmanway shootings, the point is that Peter Hart has put forward highly compromised evidence that has been found wanting.
This was despite Ian Paisley accusing Eugene Reavey of being responsible for the Kingsmill massacre in Westminster.
