As to the orginal question, who in their right minds thinks it is the job of the Irish Naval Service to send ARMED sailors wading into a bunch of civilians who are postesting.

Do you think it might be a good idea to try to TALK to people before you put them in hospital?

Do you think it might be a good idea to involve the Gardaí before you involve the Naval Service?

Do you think it might be good idea to try every avenue of approach before committing yourself to ARMED conflict?

Do you think the sight of young men in combat uniforms, beating protestors with ASP batons and arresting them might not be exactly what the country needs right now?

The Naval Service would of course break the strike if ordered they are the states primary sea going agency and should be the states only sea going agency but thats another thread.

But and there always is a but....using armed forces againist unarmed civilians that havent even been told to feck off home by the guards is a bit heavyhanded even for me.

It's illegal to block any road, sea route etc. In fact, the sea blockade by the United States against the Soviets in the Cuban Missile Crisis was, by definition, an act of war.

Are the unions declaring war on the state?
Shoot them, shoot them all.

Ps are the dock workers using military vessels to block the port?

Thats not going to happen we already discussses that & decided it would be murder
A tongue in cheek response to the suggestion that the navy be employed to break up an industrial dispute.

Not really. Do what Columbia did, claim they are starting socialist revolution. Under Irish law, we could declare a civil war. And then pass an amnesty for anyone who committed crime during that war, like they did in 1937. Everyone is a winner.
ODFO: You give right wing military dictatorship a bad name.

They (MTL) have employed KMS (Keenie Meanie Services) a "security" company with links to the SAS named after the internal SAS slang for dirty tricks. These hired goons are being used to intimidate Irish citizens in a legitimate trade dispute with their employer.

If you think Irish people would accept your policies you're a deluded idiot, consider that when Irish Ferries decided to throw out their Irish staff and employ everyone @ eastern European rates more people made the effort to come out and march in support of the striking workers than voted for the PDs.

We don not live in Pinochet's Chile and we have no desire to do so.

Amen to that, end the blockade if it hasn't ended already, and please don't disrupt other people's business in and out of this country

Were not in 1937, it's now 2009 & any goverment or soldier who ever did these actions could look forward to a trip to the hague for their crimes!!!


4)


Except the innocent murdered people, the goverment (which would fall soon after, as most of it senior member would be in the hague) & the people of Ireland who would have to rebuild the shattered country!!!
A lot of worse things happen that people get away with. Look at Israel.

If FF decided to listen to me, I would be happy to see this government fall.

You are a total and utter gobshxxe.Don't be commenting on something you know nothing about then.The people that are on strike and their familys do care so fxxk off if you havent got somethong constructive to say.
They have block ships. Thats enough for me to issue their death warrants.

Firstly, I have never voted for the PDs.

Second, Pinochet was even a tad bit more extreme than myself.

Granted he also murdered people who differed from his political vision, but surely all those trade unionists and civil rights shower need a spot of re-education at least :^)

I can't believe I'm feeding this Troll.

of course, if it has been breached, just sue
and if they are costing the company they are blockading money, they can sue.

this is a civil matter and the state should stay out of it unless there is criminal activity, and so far there is no evidence of any, so they have not acted.

if you think the state should be a goon squad for capitalist interests, just say so.

Israel is not in the E.U. or U.N. so cant be sent to the Hague, unlike us!!!

It would not only distroy the goverment but would distroy Ireland economically and our relationship with other countries and our world image

Maybe thats enough for you to order the murder of innocent people, but for anybody reasonable and sane it is not!!!

You are just as bad a Pinochet and you would take ireland down with you!!!

Didn't you hear, we sent all our navy to South America for the Craic.
Didn't think this was going to happen on our shore, did we now.

Maybe we should ask Britain and EU for support, to stop this illegal blockade. :rolleyes:

Have you seen it lately? They won and made off with a bucket load of loot.
