Put the people of the country first which he has not done he is following the instructions of his EU masters and is happy to have th country take it up the ass when we are forced to take in the dregs and scum of the Middle East and Africa.What do you have to do to be 'true Irish?
I agree with you that we should be wary of being in a miltary pact with the Turkey, the USA, and the UK, because these countries could easily drag us into a war.Being members of the EU is totally incompatible with neutrality....
We are in such an alliance and if Russia invades some part of Latvia in the morning we will be at war with Russia the next day and if we are not then lets not worry about our neutrality...
While I'm blathering on I might as well add my concerns about Turkey and its position as a Nato member. Turkey is in a part of the world where unfortunately there is a lot of conflict and they are increasingly pro-active in engaging with it.
I did a short stint in Liberia ( pvt sector company) when the Irish were the QRF. of the UN misssion there. We were always pleased when they were on call as we knew they would react quickly and efficently. More importantly the gooks also knew so stayed away.I really wouldn't be sending in inexperienced soldiers , leave that to the French , Brits and yanks .
Large parts of eastern Ukraine are pro-Russian and the people identify as ethnically Russian.So what the feck are they doing in Ukraine?
I have a shi t eating grin on my face reading your Walther Mitty fantasies , the oirish army couldn't beat there way out of a wet paper bag , lmao ,:lol:I did a short stint in Liberia ( pvt sector company) when the Irish were the QRF. of the UN misssion there.

I hear you , I can see the Irish as been professional and fair thats not the problem , if the ************************ hits the fan they have no experience and are way underarmed , at least send them in with the right tools , as they say, rather have them and not need them to needing them and not having them , never take a chance on the well being of young Irish men and women .Have been , worked and played in more places and situations than the average joe. Somalia , Pakistan, DRC All over Africa, Middle East etc, and even a short job in South America. So no waltering required..
As regards Liberia it might be useful for you to read some independent reports on the performance of UNMIL and the various contingents, Irish and Swedish QRF highly respected and admired for their professionalism and fairness, Fact...
The Irish army is small but very professional. The Ranger wing in particular is modelled on the US Army Rangers and is among the best in the world.I they have no experience and are way underarmed , at least send them in with the right tools , as they say..
In this current scenario, and despite the lies coming from the Taoiseach, they are not peacekeepers.
They are belligerents, being part of an EU army of occupation which is in the Sahel to support French post-colonial interests in the region and the French army's own operation.
That is a completely different ball game to a UN mission, because it makes the Irish troops legitimate targets for the rebels.
None of this makes any sense, nor will benefit the citizens or tax payers - but all those shots of Varadkar hopping on and off helicopters will go down well when he's looking to get onto the security council - it's all @campaignforleo.The french will support dictators that they have done deals with, but we should not get involved in this. As the colonial power they have used one ethnic group against another. Plus if this island is ever invaded, what use will desert training be?
In the case of Liberia they were not under armed and had the capacity to deal with anything that would have been thrown against them. It is amazing that they were able to maintain and use ancient AML 90s on that mission.I hear you , I can see the Irish as been professional and fair thats not the problem , if the ************************ hits the fan they have no experience and are way underarmed , at least send them in with the right tools , as they say, rather have them and not need them to needing them and not having them , never take a chance on the well being of young Irish men and women .
France controls the money.“If we have people who are leaving Africa now it’s because some European countries, and France in particular, have never stopped colonizing Africa,” said Di Maio, who leads the 5-Star.
“If France didn’t have its African colonies, because that’s what they should be called, it would be the 15th largest world economy. Instead it’s among the first, exactly because of what it is doing in Africa.”
This has prompted an angry response from the French.France was manipulating the economies of 14 African countries that use the CFA franc — a colonial-era currency which is underpinned by the French Treasury.
“France is one of those countries that by printing money for 14 African states prevents their economic development and contributes to the fact that the refugees leave and then die in the sea or arrive on our coasts,” he said.
France argues that the CFA franc has brought welcome monetary "stability" to the countries that use it...
