Omni Air N378AX Troop Carrier - US Air Base to Kuwait via Shannon
Omni Air number N378AX arrived at Shannon Airport early this morning having collected US troops from Robert Gray air base in Texas and from Pope air base in North Carolina. It has since flown on to deliver these US troops to Kuwait and to Al Udeid air base (which is the biggest US air base in the Middle East).
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948, highlights every person's "Right to Life, Liberty and Security of the Person". Yet Ireland has been and is still actively complicit in deaths of up to six million people across the Middle East and North Africa since the First Gulf War in 1991 by allowing US military to use Shannon Airport.
The silence during this election campaign on Irish Foreign policy, neutrality and Irish complicity in US war crimes is deafening.
