    Default A vote against the Treaty of Lisbon is a vote against a United Ireland

    Quote Originally Posted by Title_7_Solidarity_Clause_Article_188R
    The Union and its Member States shall act jointly in a spirit of solidarity if a Member State is the object of a terrorist attack or the victim of a natural or man-made disaster. The Union shall mobilise all the instruments at its disposal, including the military resources made available by the Member States,
    to:
    (a) prevent the terrorist threat in the territory of the Member States;
    protect democratic institutions and the civilian population from any terrorist attack;
    assist a Member State in its territory, at the request of its political authorities, in the event of a terrorist attack;
    One of the core reasons given that an United Ireland is impossible is the inability of the republic of Ireland effectively to control the risk of terrorist attacks by loyalist paramilitarys.
    Whether or not this lack of ability is in fact true doesn't the clause above blow it out of the water.

    Lisbon will allow Ireland to call on the French, Germans and Poles, for example, to assist in controlling post unification civil disturbance. It will make it possible for other member states to assist us if we need assistance.

    The potential benefit for this country is far greater than the potential risk.

    A vote against the Treaty is a vote for partition.
    A vote against Lisbon is treasonous.

    A vote against Lisbon is a vote for giving AIDS to babies.

    Wasn't inviting foreign armies into Ireland to do our dirty work what got us into this mess in the first place.

    Maybe then history will record that 'the French, Germans and Poles became more Irish than the Irish themselves.'

    Reread the posts. Nobody wants to vote Yes so you can believe that Ireland can be united
