This is in nobody’s interests except those same elites who have benefitted from western intervention in Iraq, Libya and elsewhere.To that end, Cllr Ryan said that “Ireland should ensure it can in no way be implicated in the looming war crimes it would seem the Trump regime are intent on committing. All US military use of Shannon Airport must be ended immediately so that our country is not involved in creating a further tragedy in the Middle East.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Meanwhile, as the United States seeks any excuse to escalate war against the Syrian government, it continues to ignore – and in some cases, actively provide arms to – terror groups such as the so-called Army of Islam, who have openly called for the genocide of minority groups in Syria, and have paraded men, women and children in cages through the streets simply due to the fact they were not fundamentalist Sunni Arabs.“These people were freed in recent weeks, as the Army of Islam was driven out of its strongholds. And now, it has released videos of a supposed chemical attack by Syrian government forces. Are we really gullible enough to accept their word as sufficient evidence to justify an escalation of an already devastating war?”Ireland must not be an accomplice to this, the Dublin Councillor said.See more news herecenter_img Facebook Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Advertisement LimerickNewsSecurityTransportCalls made to close Shannon Airport to US militaryBy Staff Reporter – April 11, 2018 4289 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Printlast_img
