Rabbites Betrayal Of Ireland

Pat Rabbite expects us to believe that drilling for our own resources is not viable, yet letting a foreign company come in and do it (at a low tax rate) is the way to go. It goes to show the little respect the politicians have for the citizens of Ireland, and its resources. Has everyone forgotten Shell's antics in Mayo? The current giveaway deals for Ireland's resources were hammered out at the Trilateral Commission meeting in Dublin last may and at earlier meetings with key players in the Banking and Oil sector. The Fine Gael / Lab Government is just continuing a process that was started by previous Fianna Fail governments, and the latter coalition with the Green Party. The theft of Ireland's resources will only stop when the whole population of Ireland come together and defend the nation against the forces that want to tear our country, and its people, apart. This government does not run the country, they are only actors who we elect in order to give the impression that we have a say. Their bosses are secure behind the curtain. The real rulers of our country are the Banks and the Multi - Nationals. But don't give up yet, we have the power to stop this, but we have to stop fighting amongst ourselves and start focusing on these outside forces that are responsible for the robbery of our country.

Coming from an elder statesman of Indymedia I feel very honoured by your reply. And no, I am not being sarcastic. Take care.

Thats not fair, and anatomically inaccurate.

Its that brown sliver behind his teeth.

No but credit(dont shoot, i dont even play the piana)...I nearly dropped a stitch when he came out and favoured Palestinian recognition. And even Kenny finally told Rome go home(however cosmetic).

My point?

If you give what litle credit they are due, your criticism will have more credibility.

Even De Rossy is calling for release of palestinian kids from gaol in Zion.
 
Keep your balance, even if they can't. Otherwise you wander into a later ambush cos ya dug a trench and didn't see the road twist.

now hang me.

You really hit the nail on the head with your comment, I had forgotten that Eamonn Gilmore was in government. How betrayed his supporters must feel, voting for a man with no tongue, and no integrity.

And don't forget that other sod McGilmore who's now playing the fool with Cameron's rejection of a public inquiry over Pat Finucane's case. If Cameron does not want a public inquiry is because he is CERTAIN of British collusion in those crimes as in many thousand more, including torture, rape and disappearances. Shame on Gilmore, who were so busy a-r-s-e-l-i-c-k-i-n-g his buddies Cameron and the Queen, saying that we had to "get over the past" while he made a fool of himself like a shameless Paddy-clown. Where are his friends now? They let him down? And still he dares to attack true republican patriots who stood up for their people while he was cowardly bending to London. They should know that true Irish people, not shameless Westbrits as Rabbite or Gilmore will never get over the past while there is no justice, while there are still troops in the North, while there is no truth and public inquiry over evil deeds done in this fine island they are ruinning while in government. Shame, shame, shame!
