Well I guess we're never going to agree here. My belief is that if Thatcher died in 1984 and the Tet Offensive was sucessfull in 1987, than the Ireland would be united today. However the possibility of sectarian violence in the north would be quite likely if not guranteed.

Anyway, my main point here is what political parties would emerge? How would the remaining Unionists vote? What would happen to the SDLP? Would Sinn Fein still be relavant?

If we didn't give up from 1916-1987, we wouldn't have given up to terrorists then.

Sorry about that.
