    I think this image is faked. If you look closely, those flags are too large for any normal human on horseback to wield. I’m not buying it.

      We sit between Iraq and Israel at the UN, I bet there’s some entertainment value in there somewhere.

    Well, we do allow their sworn enemies to use our civilian airports when their military is coming and going from fupping up their countries. Maybe Ivory Coast are in on it as well

      Isis don’t give a sh1te about US troops in Shannon, the fact that we are a western country is enough for them.

        I think you might want to consider the change in our reputation since the US started using Shannon.
        The following is from the testimony of Dr. Tom Clonan in a trial in Ennis in June of this year.

        “During my time serving in the Middle East in the Army I was accutely aware that we were considered neutral. Years later when in the Lebanon I met a paliamentary representative of Hezbollah Dr. Ali el Mekdad. I was attempting to have a chat about Syria when he said “I want to talk to you about your airport over there in Co. Clare. You should be ashamed of yourselves. You are allowing your airport to be used to hurt our people, kill our children. ”
        I would be concerned that if Islamic Resistance Groups like Hezbollah, know of the military use of Shannon Airport, it exposes us to threats, and including Irish troops in the Golan Heights.”

          This is common sense, no anecdotal evidence required. I cannot for the life of me understand the eagerness of people like Stephen Harper and Tony Abbot for a slice of the action. It will inevitably come back to bite them in the ass.

      Also ISIS don’t have any countries.

      They do, however, deserve all the fupping up they get and if Shannon is being used to aid in that fupping then I’m all for it.

    Jeebus, ISIS are turning to an Orlando Bloom movie for their imagery. The world is in deep shit.

    Jaysus, I knew cut-backs were bad in the Irish army but when we did we swap the APCs for donkeys?

          since when was giving humanitarian aid considered ‘countering’ an aggressive force? Its looking after civilian casualties caught up in the war. Thats like saying the red cross are helping to bolster the oppositions army. I’d expect this from BBC but not Al Jazeera.

          1. jungleman

            Al jazeera can be a bit hit and miss with the propaganda but they’re certainly not beyond reproach..

    It is almost quaint to see that people believe we are immune from the attentions of Islamic extremists because we are a small nation or because of our (in no way a sham) neutral status.

    1. Delacaravanio

      A lot of the ISIS propaganda, like the radicals who go and fight them, are products of suburban mosques in Western Europe.

      It’s more likely this was made in Manchester than Mosul.

    Clever of ISIS to focus on crosses when selecting the flags of their enemies.

    That’s what happens Switzerland when you christianise your national flag.

    Isn’t that from Kingdom of Heaven? And aren’t the guys charging in from the left crusader knights?

    I wouldn’t be standing next to the Israeli’s. As Lord Melchett said, “We’ll be standing behind you all the way [about 20 miles behind you]”
