US military use of Shannon


Madam, - Paul Williams (June 8th) claims the anti-Iraq-war movement is actually anti-American. Mr Williams must be out of touch with Americans, as the US electorate voted in a new Senate and Congress on the basis of opposition to the war in Iraq (a view shared by the majority of the people on this island).

To prolong this fiasco in Iraq would certainly be anti-American.

I say: let the US administration use Shannon to facilitate the return of its troops home. - Yours, etc,
