In 1169, Norman knights of Henry II began the English conquest and colonization of Ireland. In 1969, eight hundred years later, a rising of Irish nationalists against what was left of it began in the six counties of Ulster. Twenty-nine years of civil war followed, between the Provisional Irish Republican Army and other Republican armed groups and the UK armed forces and Protestant militias. That war, one of many that have marked Irish resistance to English colonization, ended in 1998 with the Good Friday Agreement. Three years later, British prime minister, Anthony Blair, launched the UK on a new imperial enterprise, this time in Afghanistan and then in Iraq, to crush resistance to Israel and its protecting superpower, the USA. In these 'Northern Irish Tracts', Jonathan Bull (as in John Bull and as in bullshit) tears British policy in Ulster and in the Zionist-American enterprise to pieces. His weapon: savage indignation and satire, echoing his great exemplar, Jonathan Swift. "Outrageous " "Shatters the received political propaganda of the 'Free World.'" "Scorching critique of Britian's role in Northern Ireland and elsewhere." "Shocking - no holds barred." Cover illustration: PC Studios. 'Spring resurgent in Tir na nOg' (Homage to Jack B. Yeats).
