My friend when there is one group running the whole show a legal gaurentee from politicians is as good as a used car salesmans promise. Its amazing how people are clinging onto this not realising the implications of it. Who's going to court when they break it(which they will) the people? Do you think the government will side against their political masters in brussels over the people's freedoms. Do you not think the bureacrats in brussels have all the judge's in their back pockets even at an international level? Your not paying attention to the governments history and past actions then i'd suggest.
Its amazing how naieve people are. To give away their countries freedoms and sovereignty based on a 'legal gaurentee' is showing how much you value your own country.
True, like a military man selling weapons either!
This is true as well. He stands up in this country for ONE issue and some people are willing to sell him the whole shop - why?
Because he speaks well!
Naive indeed. Some supporters are like a horse wearing blinkers!
Well there is something to be said for dressing well and appearing presentable and keeping your voice level low which i dunno appeals to the public. I mean that still does stand for something you know rather then appearing slobbish, overweight, inarticulate and boorish in speech. Thats just human nature though people do like to hear and listen to people who are presentable. Or would you show up for an interview with hair messy, food down your clothes dribbling from the mouth?
To top that off he at least presents us with some semblance of reality of whats going on at the top and is calling our corrupt politicans out which is something they really don't like. They like to be surrounded by yes men.
So we should vote him because he has a shiny new suit, and a shiny new head? When have a 300 odd million fortune behind me I'll get a pretty decent suit too. Will you vote for me?
He knows what's going on "at the top" does he? From what, his own extensive experience as an elected official? Public representative? Politician?....
O' look for gods sake!
We can grab anybody off the street, dress them up in a suit, ask them to speak on ONE issue - that sure as hell don't make them alternative material.
Even Hitler came out like Mussolini, Mugabe, Castro, etc and gave out about what went on before and who did it?
Did that make them any better (than the previous) or are you still missing my point?
Clearly those blinkers are not allowing you to see the full picture and until your willing at at least investigate those your willing to vote for, naivety indeed is still rampant in this country.
Discuss your conspiracy theories in the appropriate forum.
If you're going to lecture me on the structure of the EU and its commissions, please read up on it before doing you.
Otherwise, you look fairly out of your depth on this subject and I'd say underwater if ever away from the net.
There are far too many delusionaries out there who seem to have some effed-up ideal that the Republic of Ireland can be self-subsistent. They'll even throw out some ridiculous comparisons with Norway and Switzerland.
A legal guarantee is good enough for its signees here on this island (the Good Friday Agreement). Are you saying that this is worthless?
Sorry, kiddo. Not good enough.
Did Ganley announce that he is pro European integration on defence and wouldn't be against a European army ?
I was under the impression that only the President of the USA had the authority to declare war only with Congress's approval unless it was provoked like in Pearl Harbour
I love to see ganley in the dail. First act to hang JOD (methaphorically speaking)
Richard Myers was the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (2001-2005), Air Force Gen.
under Bush 2 when they went to Iraq
guess whose opinion Bush had to listen to?
guess who was in charge when the Iraq prisoner abuse happened?
some interesting reads
yes the guy in charge of starting that quaqmire is working with Ganley now
and his only one of many on that company
So he was a solider who followed orders.
Are you suggesting there should have been a coup d'état ?
A soldier who followed orders?
wow just wow
the guy was in charge of the army at the time the war started, he was the one who pitched the idea of War! the only guy in charge of him was The Chief himself > George W. Bush
heres some reading for you
himself and Bush should be dragged to the Hague for war crimes
So you are in favour of a coup d'état ?
im in favour of war criminals being charged with what they deserve
he urged Bush to start the war
he could have told him "no this is a bad idea" and Bush would have had to listen, no need for a coup d'état
and now this guy and others from Bush'es inner circle are working for Ganley
tho in hindsight removing Bush would have save north of a million lives in Iraq alone
Just as an aside was anyone watching Farrage on BBC news 24 yesterday?
He basically said there is a gap in the market in Ireland for a party.
I can't remember his exact words, but outside of his main message, it was sort of alarming.
I'd agree that there is a gap in the market for a new party and that's where it ends. Either we fill it ourselves or we will get outside rightwingers doing it for us.
As far as ganley is concerned he's a bit of a nothing in nice clothes.
Simmons was far more the intellectual speaker, saw her on France24 and she was amazing. She doesn't hesitate like Ganley.
As a no voter he did our bidding in the lead up to the referendum but that's where my alliances with them would end.
The laughable end of this for me was Lenihan portraying him as Dr. Evil just days before the referendum.
Indeed them being able to portray him in such a light lead to many more questions in my mind.
I think that any new party to enter into the irish political stage will be portrayed as the devil.
I've never seen anything like this before in Irish politics, we are entering into a really interesting time indeed.
