Airport misused

Every time I travel through Shannon airport it makes my blood run cold to see those fine young American soldiers laying over on their way to fight unjustified wars, to kill or be killed.

I do not see them in Kennedy, Heathrow, or the civilian airports of Nato countries. It is inviting a strike against them, and all those little children, who in their innocence gather around and talk to them. Why is a civilian airport, in a neutral country, being used as a military base, and an old woman who protests is thrown in jail?
