Irish Anti War Movement On Increased Military Action In Syria

Play

Mark speaks to EDWARD HORGAN from the Irish Anti War Movement about the increased military activity in Syria and its implications.

He talks about how the military action is becoming a vicious circle, the genesis of where the terrorism acts of today came from, the mistakes that the militaries tend to make, how the children of the Middle East are just as precious as the children here and how global politics from Russia could have a lot to do with the military action.

He also talks about Ireland’s stance on the situation, how the lessons of crimes in the past have not been learned, how Ireland could be a possible target for ISIS, how business industries have a part to play in military action and the awareness that the anti war movement has given to the Irish people about the situation.
