Was Michael Collins right?

Almost a century on, should we have fought what Lloyd George called "an immediate and terrible war"?

Or accepted the Treaty and the years of "troubles"?
 
I doubt Collins was right about anything.

Negotiating with the Brits was definitely wrong. It cost him his life.

Arrogance cost him his life. He went to west Cork against all the warnings and during the ambush he got out of the back of the car because he thought he was able for a gunfight in Cork.

Joking aside he got the best deal possible under the circimstances.

That weasel Dev sent a soldier to London to negotiate something that Dev bloody well knew what the answer was going to be.
Dev should have went but that FF prick knew he would be blamed.

Politicking 101. If you don't like the answer, get someone else to ask the question.

It was Collins' lookout. He should have been wide. Probably too busy arranging trysts with exquisites in the Phoenix Park.
