Irish Government Hypocrisy over Foreign Warplanes Along the Irish Coast
Big flap about Russia planes by govt and media but nothing about US war planes
Press Release - Feb 1st - The Irish Government and media appear to be in a panic about two Russian TU-95 bomber aircraft that flew down the west coast of Ireland at least 50 miles out to sea, and not through Irish sovereign airspace. A statement issued by the Irish Department of Defence said "non-controlled and non-notified flight activity by Russian aircraft is not acceptable". This same Department of Defence of a supposedly neutral Irish state has issued no such statements about the transit of almost two and half million US troops through Shannon airport since 2001, and provides Irish soldiers to guard US military aircraft at Shannon.
Foreign military plane landed at Shannon this evening (1st Feb 2015). No government or media outcry about this.
This evening at 5pm there were two such US military planes at Shannon Airport. One was "disguised" as a civilian plane flying the colours of Omni Air International but is being used to transport up to 300 armed US troops through Ireland. It was being protected by a Garda Siocana patrol car. The other aircraft was a US Navy C40 which can be used to transport military cargo and soldiers. This plane was being guarded by an Irish army patrol. These planes were not 50 miles out to sea and flying at 50,000 or so feet. They were on the tarmac at Shannon Airport and the Omni troop carrier was getting ready to take off having been refuelled at Shannon - all in breach of international laws on neutrality.
