Chomsky: Ireland may be complicit in US war crimes
19/01/2006 - 08:00:07
Leading US academic Noam Chomsky has said the Irish Government could be complicit in war crimes for allowing the US military to use Shannon Airport as part of its war in Iraq.Professor Chomsky made the claim while delivering the annual Amnesty International lecture before an audience of 2,000 people at the RDS in Dublin last night.He used his speech, entitled War on Terror, to argue that the US/British invasion of Iraq had increased the risk of terrorism and nuclear proliferation.He also challenged the US and Europe to consider how their foreign policies have actually increased the risk of terrorism worldwide.When answering questions from the floor, Prof. Chomsky suggested that the passage of US soldiers through Shannon Airport could amount to participation in a war of aggression, which the Nuremburg Tribunal declared to be "the supreme international crime which encompasses within itself all of the evil that follows".
