Blight Of The Gods

I know I’ve knocked GAA commentators in the past, but Joe Brolly does a good job of summing things up here:

‘Defending the eight, Joe Brolly said there had been a meeting last Monday of the Derry Anti-War Coalition at which it was agreed they would hold a peaceful protest.

He described the charges faced by the men as excessive and proposed purely to prevent a magistrate granting them immediate bail.

He said: “This was essentially a matter of conscience. There is no requirement for these people to spend lengthy periods on remand in prison.”

He said Raytheon made “light of the gods”. Saying, “What they do and do extremely well is make missiles. They are purveyors of death.

“They made 21.9 billion dollars last year and are the fifth biggest arms manufacturer in the world. They make bunker-buster bombs, Tomahawk and Patriot missiles, all of which are used in Iraq and currently in the Lebanon.”
