After reading the article this was taken from, I am more then skeptical. If he ever provides proof of his details, I would give it a second look, maybe.

He{Brian Harring, Domestic Intelligence Reporter}claims 5,000+ US soldgers have gone awol to Ireland? Don't you think the Irish would of noticed?

That would be a pretty big thing to cover up. There are a number of journalists, non-corporate news sources, and organizations who wouldn't hesitate to cover a story like this, if it was real.

The DOD releases the names of those killed.

There are also a number of sites with detailed information.

If over 7,000 name have been omitted from the lists, there would be several times that number (family, friends, associates) raising hell about it.

Yes, it was too much of a cover up to be believable. It sounded plausible because I can see the DoD saying those "killed in Iraq" are literally those KIA in Iraq. It wouldn't be the first time some twist of words are used to change numbers.

They are certainly not here in Ireland :rofl: . If they were they would nearly outnumber our own armed forces of 8500. Unless of course they are all cunningly disguised as sheep!!! :biggrin:

Since the government here banned smoking in pubs they'd have the pubs practically to themselves. :biggrin:

Through an amazing act of restraint, I have managed to prevent myself from making a comment on the above that would probably have had me banned forever. :yuck:
