JUSTINE McCarthy Breaks The Media Silence on Covert Government Surrender of Irish Neutrality

JUSTINE McCarthy Breaks The Media Silence on Covert Government Surrender of Irish Neutrality

Put our foot down and stay in neutral: Justine McCarthy, “The Sunday Times”, 28 January 2018

In unstable times, Ireland must not let its status as honest broker slip away.

The images at Shannon- the trusting youthfulness of the soldiers, the lethal geopolitical minefield awaiting them, and the beaming US Vice-President Pence -were especially alarming if you were Irish and happened to believe in the state’s declared neutrality

Mike Pence has one of those catchy, buddy-buddy names. He also has an unthreatening demeanour, unlike his thunderously sulky boss, Donald Trump. Last weekend, togged out in an airforce-style bomber jacket emblazoned with his own name, good ol’ Mike alighted from Air Force Two at Shannon airport and exhorted US troops en route to the Middle East war cauldron to focus on the mission ahead of them.

That’s Shannon airport in Ireland. And, yes, that’s Ireland — an independent, sovereign, self-proclaimed neutral state. And Pence is second-in-command to the world’s most powerful person. Should Trump be impeached, Pence would assume control of the nuclear codes.

According to news reports by Bloomberg, The Times of Israel, the Los Angeles Times, the Taipei Times, the Jamaica Observer and the Hindustan Times, the American vice-president hugged and snapped selfies with “scores” of American soldiers on their way to Kuwait, a launch-pad for America’s offensive against Isis in Iraq.

Pence, who described Kuwait as “a critical theatre”, made a speech to the camouflage-clad troops in Shannon’s terminal building while his own super-deluxe aircraft was being refuelled. Everything about the scene was chilling- the trusting youthfulness of the soldiers, the lethal geopolitical minefield awaiting them, and the beaming Pence.
