This C130 Hercules number JW5314 was at Shannon at 11 am on Thursday 13 March 2014. It was being guarded as usual by an Irish Army patrol, making the Irish Defence Forces complicit in any atrocities committed by the occupants of this aircraft. Dragging others into a net of complicity is almost standard practice for military forces and their political leaders who know that they are engages in atrocities, so as to spread the blame for such atrocities as widely as possible. Examples abound through history, including in recent decades, war crimes in the former Yugoslavia, the so-called Lords Resistance Army in Uganda, the Cambodian and Rwanda Genocide, etc. George W Bush was keen to entrap as many other governments as possible into his war crimes , and probably regarded recruiting the Bertie Ahern Irish Government as important because of our neutral status.
