open your eyes.

You said that you were talking about *now* and I'm talking about *now.*  If the people of Ulster wanted to join the Republic, I doubt the English would stop them.  The bulk of the people of Ulster don't want to join the Republic and if you'd like to replace peaceful means of resolving the problems there with violent ones, well, may God either inspire you to reconsider or make your conquest as swift as it is relatively bloodless and the peace afterward remarkably easy given the circumstances. 

And in yet another irony of history, the British Army was initially sent into Northern Ireland *to protect the Catholics from the Unionists* (I'm sure you know that, DK, I'm just saying it for those who might not know).
