I'm simply critiquing extreme nationalism and saying there is no excuse adequate enough for aligning with the Axis in WW2.

This isn't even close to being true. You're obviously clueless. Ireland actually quietly sided with the Allies during WW2, evidenced by the fact that every British pilot who crashed there was released across the border, while every German pilot that crashed was interned. And this benevolence came 20 years after lunatic British soldiers burned the city of Cork to the ground and opened fire on a crowd watching a sports match in Croke Park.
