    And in 21 September 1978 they destroyed 4 RAF planes in Eglington.

    Because they were not terrorists just looking to kill as many people as they could. Their attacks were usually targeted against the British government or the Loyalist paramilitaries. If they were planning on attacking a public location, they would call the Northern Ireland police and tell them about it about an hour or so before the bomb was set to explode so that civilians could be evacuated.

    They weren't that mad like the Muslims.

    They were terrorists, not suicidal. It is not easy to get a bomb on an aeroplane unless you are there too ... and even then it is not at all easy. It was easier to kill the innocent general public in English pubs or busy railway stations, largely financed by American donations.

    They couldn't develop a flying bomb?
