UPDATE: Listener Jen pointed out to us the
problematic origins of the term "Irish Car Bomb" and why it's
insensitive to use so cavalierly:
"The history of Ireland for the last 100 years has been plagued by civil war, oppression, bitter rivalry in religious and national factions, and pain in the partitioning of the North from the republic of Ireland. During the four decades of the Troubles in the last half of the 20th century, an estimated 3,500 people lost their lives, due in no small part to improvised explosives. More than half of these were civilians. Many were children. Even 20 years following the Good Friday agreement of 1998, the Irish people are still grappling with how to find justice and settle the mysteries of how loved ones died. This is no easy thing to do, and yet as a nation the Republic (whose current events I am more familiar with than the North) are committed to engaging in this painful process with peace, healing, and forgiveness as the ultimate objective."
