If this happened in some warzone in the middle east, there would be a investigation into war crimes. Why is it Britain that is investigating this, rather than an outside agency? I suppose it's been looked at, and rejected previously?

If one has a hammer everything looks like a nail, soldiers have guns, what do you expect them to do
Not to shoot innocent civilians?

I agree though, they who ordered it have more blood on their hands imo.

this is indeed welcome news, and is a vindication of the thoroughness of British justice even after all these years.
hopefully this will help draw a line under the events of that terrible day, and people on this island can move on with their lives.

It was a slaughter of innocent people, many shot from behind, in the back, or when waving white hankies.

Brave brave soldiers indeed. The heroes of the British Army.

No

Israel and the USA would ensure, as is their practice that no war crimes investigations take place.

What would have happened is this had happened on the streets of London, Manchester or Liverpool?

Thats what you should be comparing to.

Is it not? From what I hear all the time, London is under Sharia law and everyone gets stabbed every day.

It certainly wouldn't have taken nearly fifty years to get just one soldier charged. And no one would be making all sorts of excuses for their actions.

Ah no in fairness they aren't wrong about those who ordered it being more to blame.

When it comes to apologist tripe, downplaying, dismissal and whataboutery, you ain't seen nothing yet. Prepare for the Irish forelock tuggers and the English man in denial!

It was state-sanctioned murder, so too many higher up could be implicated.
