What kind of republican parade?
Is celebrating the queens jubliee the same as a edl parade
You posted that the Provisional movement carried on the campaign in the belief that the conflict would become yet greater. You have yet to present any evidence to back that up, or any of your other far fetched claims.

Are you seriously telling me that they believed that British state withdrawal would not make things ten times worse?

To be fair republican groups helf meetings with loyalists and protestant community leaders before they were openly talking with the British government.
To be honest, if the british had been defeated by force alone there would have been loyalist resistance simular to the 1920's and burning of bombay street in the '60's.
If an end to British involvement in Ireland comes about peacefully there is likely to be less Loyalist resistance since the atmosphere would alloy for inclusive talks.
If you look at the old Sinn Fein/OIRA Eire Nua model it shows how Ulster protestants would not be in a minority in Ireland since each provence would have its own local government in a federal system.

to be honest, I dont hang around bonfires so I wouldnt be able to help you there.
As usual, a thread on Northern Ireland has been derailed by squabbling. Please stay on topic, or this thread will be closed.
This is just false realies. The Orange Order have been going for hundreds of years. Thousands and thousands of Orangemen and women come from all over Ulster and Ireland during the 12th to march with with the Orange Order. I do hope this thread can get back on topic though.
And yet you responded to it?
Every NI thread involves the same parties who consistently ignore the topic - and often other posters - in order to ride their usual hobbyhorses to death. Let me be clear: this is trolling, not participation, and clearly on-thread warnings aren't enough to address it. If we have to start banning people to get our point across on this, then we will, but this has got to stop.
I'm going to close this thread now in order to let everyone chew on this. To the usual suspects: consider yourselves forewarned before the next inevitable train wreck NI thread.
