The Lisbon Treaty and the guys in hoods!

Title V, Solidarity Clause, Article 188R, Page 132 Lisbon Treaty.
1. The Union and its Member States shall act jointly in a spirit of solidarity if a Member State is the object of a terrorist attack or the victim of a natural or man-made disaster. The Union shall mobilise all the instruments at its disposal, including the military resources made available by the Member States, to: assist a Member State in its territory, at the request of its political authorities, in the event of a terrorist attack;

Title V, Solidarity Clause, Article 188R, Page 132 Lisbon Treaty.
1. The Union and its Member States shall act jointly in a spirit of solidarity if a Member State is the object of a terrorist attack or the victim of a natural or man-made disaster. The Union shall mobilise all the instruments at its disposal, including the military resources made available by the Member States, to:
(a) – prevent the terrorist threat in the territory of the Member States;
– protect democratic institutions and the civilian population from any terrorist attack;
– assist a Member State in its territory, at the request of its political authorities, in the event of a terrorist attack;
(b) assist a Member State in its territory, at the request of its political authorities, in the event of a natural or man-made disaster.
2. Should a Member State be the object of a terrorist attack or the victim of a natural or man-made disaster, the other Member States shall assist it at the request of its political authorities. To that end, the Member States shall coordinate between themselves in the Council.

Government could ask for EU military intervention in the Shell plant in Erris because of terrorist threat to national Resources, Terrorists not yet labeled, but excuses mounting:

• Stories of 15 Hooded Men in balaclavas, carrying iron bars and chains, broke into Shell's compound at Glengad, assaulted a security guard, started up a digger, caused extensive damage and then simply walked away. April 2009. The Gardai could not find these people or make public any leads that could result in their arrests and conviction. But they were there according to a Chief Superintendat of the Gardai!
• The same balaclavas are said by the Gardai to have beaten ‘to near death’ Willie Corduff
• Death of Michael Dwyer RIP in Bolivia and linked to a Terrorist plot. He was involved with IRMS Shell security in Ballinaboy.
• Hooded figures with foreign accents boarded one of our fishing boats and sank it.
----------------------------------------------
If Lisbon Treaty is passed! Our Political Authorities would call in help from the EU Military Machine to quell any protests from Irish Citizens. They have already called in the Irish Navy.

But on reflection: Could the guys in hoods, with no identification have been called in unofficially? Who are they? Hungarian soldiers!

Have the Government acted unlawfully in preempting the Lisbon Treaty and have members of foreign countries operating here by stealth in such strange circumstance? It has already been established elsewhere that these veiled personnel have military connections and have foreign accents! Why do they not identify themselves?

Who, outside the protesters, are trying to enforce the law in this country? Maybe this fellow will come to our aid!

Mr Alan Shatter TD recently wrote in connection with the Burka (Muslim veil for women) "Is it not also time for the current government to have the courage to publicly state that such treatment of women in Ireland is also unacceptable? This was in response to Mr Sarkozy when the latter stated that France "cannot accept in our country women imprisoned behind a mesh screen, cut off from all social life, deprived of all identity". http://www.independent.ie/opinion/letters/lets-reopen-t....html
Maybe Mr Shatter could also open a debate in connection with the hooded men/soldiers in Ballinaboy. Has he enough "huff and puff" to take on a real job?

These people in Ballanaboy are adhering to the tenets of their religion:
That god is money and nothing else matters.
They worship the great gas snake that comes from the sea
They await the great anger of the gas snake which brings a fiery death to all.
They wear the sacred hoody or black balaclava

They walk around the sacred ground uttering their mantra "you are protester dickhead fuck off" in broken english
Unbelievers are persecuted beaten and punished ruthlessly.
Great nautical sacrifices are made to appease the snake god.

Like most religions, the media tiptoe around them deferentially no matter how daft their beliefs are or how much their actions will potentially do to the community.

ps:
If muslims were laying the pipe and giving the profits up to help rebuild gaza for the palestinians then perhaps Alan shatter might have something to say about it!! As it is, fat chance. He respects their right to wear the hoody or balaclava and kick protester ass. Because he shares the same religion as these guys at the end of the day. Money is the only religion politicians believe in.
