I thought a post on the RAF Valley Facebook pages at the end of last month was interesting. The base is concerned about possible safety breaches caused by the flying of drones in restricted areas near the base.
Obviously the use of recreational drones near any civil or military airport is to be abhorred and folk should always observe military and CAA guidelines and restrictions.
It is howeveer a poingnant irony that RAF Valley is so concerned about the safety regime of its own training programme but happliy allows that programme to turn out Saudi pilots and personnel from other Gulf States who have gone on to MURDER innocent men women and children in Yemen in their thousands.
Another irony is that I see that the forces of law and order in this case North Wales Police are involved.
Let’s hope at some time in the future justice is delivered for the innocent children of Yemen killed and maimed during several years of aerial bombardment and that those who facilitated the arming and training of these murderers find themselves before the International Criminal Court in the Hague.
That’s justice I would sign up for!
