Why a memorial to British?

There have been calls to erect a memorial to the British soldiers who died during the 1916 Rising and the Irish Examiner has welcomed such a debate. 

The Examiner has reported that a US Navy Seal killed in a fierce gun battle with the Taliban has been honoured in Kinsale (18/4/15). Did his Cork relatives say a few prayers for the insurgents who died?

On Poppy Day, does the Queen of England ask her subjects to remember those German soldiers who died?

The remains of some of the Americans who died during the Pearl Harbor attack have been recovered recently, and there will be a ceremony to honour them.

Will the US Navy say prayers for the Japanese pilots who were shot down?
