Weren’t there Irish TDs on this mission? Maybe not on this ship but on the mission itself, think the aid was going to be divvied up between a few little boats and they were going to run the gauntlet of the blockade. That’s a simply unbelievable response towards non-combatants. Of course very little will be done about it because of who it is. If it was Iran or North Korea it would surely mean war.
The boat was in international waters. There was a discussion on Pat Kenny’s programme about t. That Tom Carew clown from the Ireland-Isreal Friendship League was on it. He claimed that the people on the ship had links to Al Qaeda, whoever and whatever Al Qaeda is. I believe there was actually a Jewish holocaust survivor on the ship.
Some disgraceful posts on this topic. The state of Israel is a disgrace and this is a horrific act of state murder but there werent too many calling on the Brits to be nuked after Bloody Sunday or the States to be nuked after how many CIA linked atrocities. Money talks the other walks in this world unfortunately and Israel has plenty of money.
Fuck all would happen to Iran or North Korea either SS if they perpetutated something similar. Look at the Western world falling over backwards to accomodate China. If it was some tin pot country like Afghanistan or Iraq then sanctions would follow alright. The only thing that the Israelis will understand is financial sanctions but cant see it happening either.
You’re just a simpleton. You made the right choice leaving Arklow to head back to the backarse of Cork. Having a good cry with your auld lad after Cork won a first round championship match. I’m happy for you
There’ll be a few stern words from the usual suspects. Talks of enquires etc, but nothing will happen. It all depends on how the Turks react to this really. They have every right to treat it as an act of war.
