Today at Shannon airport, with a red alert storm approaching there were two US warplanes on their way to or from the Middle East delivering armed US troops and possibly munitions of war, to help kill even more people, in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, or Yemen. Munitions are being delivered not only to US bases and troops in the region but also to the US allies, especially Saudi Arabia, which is leading the civil war intervention in Yemen, and causing thousands of deaths which are seldom being reported internationally. Planes coming through Shannon may well be delivering these munitions.
A very credible research report on the number of deaths caused by US and NATO led wars in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq puts the number of fatalities between one and two million, and that does not include the 250,000 deaths so far in Syria. A very conservative estimate is that over 100,000 of these fatalities were children.
