And who's land is this?

Armed US troops stormed the peace camp at RAF Fairford and ripped protesters' banners off the fence.

Dressed in boiler suits and armed with serrated combat knives, the men stripped the 10ft steel fence at Gate 10. By 2pm yesterday they were putting up a barbed wire fence to keep the demonstrators at bay.

From the Gloucestershire echo.

Now I am aware that this was a trespass and that the Americans as tenants of the land had the right to enforce their rights.

Peace camp residents may be distasteful, but something rankles when knife wielding foreign troops evict British subjects from British soil.
