Dublin Opinion >>

Bush expected to be in Shannon in early June

category clare | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Wednesday January 07, 2004 15:21author by Tim Report this post to the editors

signals getting stronger that visit will happen.

Dec 9, 2003.
The Taoiseach has told the Dáil there is no certainty George W Bush will visit Ireland next year during Ireland's EU presidency.

Dec 19. (Irish Examiner)
Ahern says Bush visit possible late next year


January 7 2004. (Examiner again)
US President George W Bush is set for a Shannon
stopover when he is expected to visit Ireland in June for the EU-US summit.

So, it looks a bit more confirmed that Dubya will be coming to Ireland and that Air Force One will be soiling the tarmac at Shannon Airport amid tight(er) security.

The Examiner says that the American's have ruled out a visit to Dublin (booing crowds too large?) and that the summit would be held in the region of the airport.

If Bush does land at Shannon it's likely that the whole place will be shut down for the duration and that the Great Southern Hotel next to the terminal will be chock-a-block with security and aides.

Don't expect Bush to come to Limerick -unlike Clinton who had a big public photo op on O'Connell Street between the Bank of Ireland and Supermac's!

And of course, in case we needed a reminder, there was a US Air Force C20 at the airport this morning, with a Garda vehicle, 2 Irish army landrovers and an Airport Police van parked next to it.

The aircraft was marked, had the VIP livery and the reg was 70140. It has been sighted at the airport previously.

IAWM pledges huge protests
In a statement the Irish Anti-War Movement (IAWM) has said that it believes US President George Bush should not be welcomed to Ireland because his role in launching the illegal and immoral invasion of Iraq which claimed the lives of up to 20,000 innocent Iraqis. The IAWM statement is a response to breaking news that government officials are already making preparations for a Bush visit to Ireland in June for the US-EU summit. The IAWM intends to organise major demonstrations if the visit goes ahead and expects that tens of thousands of people will join the protests. The IAWM also said that plans to welcome Bush to Ireland further expose the hypocrisy of Bertie Ahern’s claims to have opposed the war in Iraq all along when in fact Ireland has colluded with the US war by allowing Shannon to be used by the US military.
Richard Boyd Barrett, chair of the IAWM said: “George Bush is war criminal and should not be welcomed by any government that calls itself democratic. Bush was directly responsible for the murder of thousands of innocent Iraqis in an invasion that was based on lies about weapons of mass destruction. The US announcement that intends to keep 100,000 troops in Iraq for at least the next two years also confirms that it is engaged in a colonial occupation and fully exposes its claims about bringing democracy and liberation to Iraq as more lies.”

“It is simply beyond belief that a government that recently claimed it opposed the war in Iraq could then welcome to this country the person responsible for that illegal and murderous war. Of course, Bertie Ahern and the Irish government did not oppose the war. Rather they colluded with it by allowing tens of thousand of US troops to use Shannon airport. The plans to host Bush confirm the government’s support for the US war, however much, Ahern may and try and deceive the Irish public. Fortunately, the Irish public are not fools. They have consistently made clear their opposition to the war in Iraq and the use of Shannon by the US military. If Bush comes there will be absolutely enormous protests against both him and his accomplices in the Irish government.”

Harry Browne of the IAWM commented: “The support being given by the Irish government to the US occupation of Iraq by allowing the use Shannon is of particular significance at the moment. There is currently a major rotation of US troops in Iraq taking place. Most of those troops will travel through Shannon. As a US citizen I find it particularly grotesque that the man responsible for sending thousands of young American men and women to an uncertain fate in Iraq should be welcomed into this country at Shannon Airport.”

“It is obvious to all that Bertie Ahern has advised Bush not to show his face in Dublin for fear of massive protests on the scale of February 15th, 2003. However, thousands will “welcome” Bush if he dares to step foot anywhere in this country. It’s a welcome neither he nor Bertie Ahern are likely to forget!”, Mr Browne added.

Has been saying that Dubya's coming in June. The Irish Gov are really going out of their way not to say anything. (To add to the list of media reports in the original article it's been in the foreign press too - e.g "Other Irish goals, said Mr Ahern, include patching up EU relations with the US after recent bitter disagreements over Iraq, trade and global warming. President George Bush is expected to visit Dublin for the EU-US summit in Dublin in June" (Guardian 2nd Jan)

I have to say that Shannon area sounds more likely than Dublin but it could be anywhere - fly into Shannon then helicopter to wherever?

"small number of wacko peaceniks and anarchist terrorists"
How do you make them out to be "terrorists", I thought they were calling for the US government not to engage in violence. Who did they shoot? What country did they bombard with hundreds of ton of high explosives? So who are the "terrorists"?
The only people who will be stopping you from greeting your war-criminal buddy will be the US Secret Service, the gardai, and the 26-county armed forces.

PC in all honesty, Bush would not even have to look at you guys. All he has to do is not make any definite and well known decision on where he wants to travel. He brings over the helicopter and uses that to fly over you protestors. Then when he is finished he flies back to the airport and off he goes. He would not even have to see the majority of you. In fact the Helicopter is usually the only way the US president travels nowadays.

Peace Lover, I can guarantee that me and Skelly are not the same person. While I agree with his/her opinions, I certainly would not say that just because of this we are the same person. Nice thought though, that means every peace campaigner is the same person on this site, so in all probabilities using your system, there are probably only like 6 people using this site ever!!!

The truth is, if Bush decides to visit, there is NOTHING you can really do about it. You can moan and bitch as per usual, but you will have NO effect what so ever on his trip and where he decides to visit. He just doesn't dsiclose where he wants to visit and you guys can't protest everywhere, hell normally the pres doesn't even let people know truely what he wants to do and anywhere he does plan and announce on visiting, you probably won't get within 100 feet of it. Yell, scream , blow whistles and bitch and moan and he'll barely be able to hear you.

Oh dear! Does that mean then that he won't follow in the footsteps of a couple of Bill Clinton? Sad to think that he won't be having a pint in a pub in Camden St, as Clinton did, or meeting the general public (not just a few hand-picked yesmen) as Clinton did despite protests at the time.
What is it about (US) Republican presidents that they have to dodge the public? Could it be that their policies are so disgraceful that they are ashamed to face the people? Reagan also had to scurry about avoiding the general public when he was here.

----you probably won't get within 100 feet of it. Yell, scream , blow whistles and bitch and moan and he'll barely be able to hear you--

ACTUALLY, on Bush's recent trip to London, a bunch of us got within 30 ft of Bush, despite the efforts of the security. (14,000 Police -HALF of the London Met force)
there will be a large security presence, but there will be a LOT of protestors too and it's not easy to keep them all out.

Maybe Bush will land at Shannon and then go by helicopter to Dromoland Castle, or maybe they'll stay in the Great Southern next to the terminal -it doesn't matter.

He'll know he's not welcome, and he won't be getting the publicity shot of large crowds of cheering fans - just like London, where the plan to drive down the mall in a state procession with Liz Windsor was never going to happen.

Bush is not welcome in this country, and he's not going to find too many people to shake his hand or cheer for him.

Bush is so damned arrogant that he'll just want to swagger onto the tarmac at Shannon and of course, he will never mention the thousands of dead Iraqis and Afghans, the danger he put Shannon in or anything like that.

Personally, I think it would be plain nuts to park Air Force One at Shannon.
It's already been proved that it's not guaranteed that warmonger's planes will be in mint condition when they want to leave!

I wasn't aware that you guys spke for every man woman and child of this country. Bush is not welcome, well I have not seem any polls that indicate that, I have not seen anything to state that the people of Ireland do not want Bush to visit. Quite frankly he can go where he likes, because, hes the president of one nation and has been invited by the Leader of this country, whether you agree with him visting or not does not come into it.

And as for attacking Air Force 1, I wouldn't think about it if I were you. Number one, the people who guard AF1 are renowned for been very effective at their jobs and they will be armed, You get too close and they might put a bullet into your lovely little face, and secondly, if you attack AF1, you will give Bush exactly what he wants, you will give him the opportunity to show how the world is still a crazy place and that your actions will technically sanction his War on Terror. Id still love to see how close you guys get to it though.

I didn't ask for a poll that shows how many people disapprove of Shannon being used, I asked for a poll that showed a majority of people do NOT want Bush to visit. To the best of my knowledge there hasn't been a poll even conducted yet, and yet you can say that Bush is not welcome. They are not the same issue, they are two totally different issues.

Also the poll stated that 10% of the population were not concerned with the issue. So if we were to take the results are being indicative of those who want Bush to come over or not, then what about these 10% of the population or the 36% of people who approved of the use of Shannon, do they not get to get what they want, just because 54% of random people do not agree. Very democratic.

PRESS RELEASE from MAMA (Midwest Alliance against Military Aggression)
For immediate distribution.

MAMA does not welcome the prospect of President Bush's planned visit to Ireland.
It has been reported in the press that Bush is expected to visit Shannon for an EU-US Summit during Ireland's six month presidency of the EU.
MAMA believes that it would be a disgrace to invite a mass murderer to Shannon. The airport has already been used by the US Military
en route to killing thousands of innocent Afghans and Iraqis. It would be wrong to allow George W Bush to swagger into town and be treated as a statesman, all in time for his re-election campaign.
Given his corruption of Shannon for deadly purposes, it would be arrogant of him to walk into Shannon for a photo-opportunity, similar to his appearance in occupied Baghdad.
MAMA would also like to highlight the security and financial problems Bush's visit would cause.
When George Bush visited London, the city was turned into a military zone, as 14,000 police, secret service and armed guards had to protect Bush from protestors.
It looks increasingly likely that Bush will come to Shannon, so security will be shored up by an already over-stretched Garda Siochana.
Who will pay for this? Security for a visit like this would be much more expensive than any demonstration seen at Shannon. Shannon doesn't need the bad publicity that this man would bring.
The Irish Government should not invite Bush to Ireland, but if our shameless leaders do roll out the red carpet, Mr. Bush will be left in no doubt of the public opposition to his warmongering.

Could a pre-emptive strike of this nature be justified using the 'logic' of this lunatic terrorist and his hush-puppies?

OK I gotta ask, how come no one here has tried to ban these last few posts on Bushs sexual orientation and insults towards his performance. I mean if I came out and said that the Black Pope was a paedo, or that I knew Justin Morahan was gay and loved to have sex with Jack Chirac, it would be banned in seconds, and quite rightly so, in a good debate which is what ideally you guys strive for on Indymedia, insults lessen a persons ability to argue and provide a valid point. So I gotta ask for the last few posts to be deleted as I find em totally useless and offensive in this debate.

As for shooting down Air Force 1, do not you honestly think that AF1 is not protected against such simplistic attacks. I mean if it were that easy to take a shot at the pres as he lands, why has noone done it. I mean why did they not do when he flew on the modified 707 AF1. The plane by its very nature is designed to withstand a hell of a lot of punishment and still fly. I guarantee it can probably take at least one good shot with a moderate SAM and keep flying. You can also guarantee that the plane carries sensors and redundancy protocols that have not been disclosed to the public yet.

Finally taking a pot shot at Bush would be the most counter-productive thing you guys could do. You would essentially prove his need for a war on Terror. Imagine it, the US president is assassinated in Ireland and do you honestly think that the anti-war groups or anyone believed involved in anyway, would not be clamped down on horribly. It would be as stupid and counter-productive as those idiots the IRA killing the Queen. Or the UVF killing Bertie or Cowan. It does nothing and just leads to you guys getting more fucked than you currently are. So please stop the fantasies and the posing and try to come up with some interesting things you CAN do when he visits, you never know, you might get some more support if it is innovative enough.

Typical of po-faced fascists like Drbinoche that they like to make jokes about the CW5 getting raped in prison but when one of their own idiots asserts that "Bush will blow Dean" instead of "Bush will blow AWAY Dean" they get upset about it.

No insults were directed at Bush: how is it an insult to say that the man gives good head? At least he does something well.

The remarks about the cw5 had slipped to the back of my mind. It's good to be reminded of these things. Drbinoche,Lone gunman, and avi sometimes come on here presenting themselves as being reasonable commentators, so it's very worthwhile reminding people what they are really like.

My point is simple, if I say something about the CW5 getting raped in prison, which I will admit I said and I still believe it should have all been taken in jest, you guys jump down my throat and alot of my comments get censored, but yet if someone starts to insult myself or any of the pro-war people or insult George Bush, in a debate that was started quite reasonably, you guys see no double standard there.

Now I was aware of the mistake made with regards to Dean and Bush, I found it amusing to see how long it took someone to use it as an insult, personally I hope Bush loses this next election,he has overstayed his usefulness, and we need a democrat. But at the same time, I am painted as a fascist and yet you guys know nothing about me. I have told the most basic of information with regards to me and yet you guys can still state beyond all shadow of a doubt that I am a fascist. If thats the way I can just come out and claim that the Black Pope is a Paedophile and all of you other anti-war guys are smoking too much of the good weed.

But onto a more serious note, I notice very few of you have truely attempted to put forward a decent idea for when Bush visits.

And one quick question, when Ireland plays the Israelis soccer team in the following months, will you protest the match?

"if Bush decides to visit, there is NOTHING you can really do about it"

"trolling" (ugh, i hate the term) maybe, or the
typical lack of ie imagination, but here's an opportunity to discuss what could be done.

No, you can't physically get near bush, and would you really want to? you might catch something (insanity?, arrogance?) from it. somebody mentioned something about bullets and faces too. maybe. that would have interesting fallout.

OR

you could not buy anymore US products, starting now, really you could.

Plently of things could be shut down. like dublin airport for example, i seem to remember some taxi drivers doing this some time in the last few years, ¿no?

you could refuse to work while it's here. what do you do? what is your role in your community, what would not be there if you refuse to participate for a few days? do you work for the rich, supply them some service? tell them to fuck off for a day and see how they like it. ask yourself what you could do, then ask others to join you.

g'wan.


P.S. of arrogance (my favorite stuff)

At this point this line of comments has reached a real ie indymedia low. question: am i arrogant enough to think MY comment would restore value to this page?

P.S for later generating a sense of personal nostalgia:

You wouldn't believe where i am! hint: no wires. just metal stars and dishes and shells and esperanzas.
