      Politely
      'He died who loved to live,' they'll say,
      'Unselfishly so we might have today!'
      Like hell! He fought because he had to fight;
      He died that's all. It was his unlucky night.

        • BNS Pollux currently in Cork City until Tuesday. Did a Passex with L.E. Roisin on her way here on Thursday. Fine looking ship. Not exactly dissimilar to the IPVs due in April.

          Aft layout is interesting. Stern launcher (which can be used when ship is underway), and davit starboard, which requires the ship to come to a stop to deploy. The space in front of the "funnel" as being used as an outdoor seated space in the photo, but is set up to accept any standard TEU for use as diving support or in anti-pollution role.
          Main armament is a 12.7mm HMG, with additional GPMG on the bridge wing. Seems it spends a lot of its time escorting Russian Warships thru the channel.
          For now, everything hangs on implementation of the CoDF report.

              • Protests planned over 'entirely inappropriate' docking of Dutch naval vessels in Cork (irishexaminer.com)

                This thread alone shows how out of touch Popup Paul is.

                  Art. 12. In the absence of special provisions to the contrary in the legislation of a neutral Power, belligerent war-ships are not permitted to remain in the ports, roadsteads, or territorial waters of the said Power for more than twenty-four hours, except in the cases covered by the present Convention.
                  And since as far as I am aware, the Netherlands are not at a state of war, it in no way impacts on Ireland's so called "neutrality". Not that he or they care about the Law, either National or International.
                  It was the year of fire...the year of destruction...the year we took back what was ours.
                  It was the year of rebirth...the year of great sadness...the year of pain...and the year of joy.
                  It was a new age...It was the end of history.
                  It was the year everything changed.

                    Convention (XIII) concerning the Rights and Duties of Neutral Powers in Naval War. The Hague, 18 October 1907.

                    and

                    Convention (V) respecting the Rights and Duties of Neutral Powers and Persons in Case of War on Land. The Hague, 18 October 1907.

                    are very inconvenient for proponents of Irish “neutrality”

                          One of the Dutch helicopters was up as well, saw it coming back in to land but didn’t have my phone.

                            Probably hopelessly optimistic on this Friday evening but maybe a sign towards the future...

                                In this manner, yes.
