Very amusing. It seems the USA don't have to pay anything for using the airspace, 'and it's just not fair'!! :{

Well, it's time for the Irish mavericks to declare war on, say, Honduras. Just for a laugh, of course. Claim they have leprechauns of mass distruction, and aren't afraid to use them.
:D

The whole hoohaa is just an attempt by the opposition party to make some cheap political capital.
Its a storm in a teacup and nobodies really interested.

Europe has been living under the free military protection of the US since the Second WW. It's saved us a few things....like having to learn Russian and wave red flags. Free military overflights doesn't seem a lot to ask in return!
