Mayor Michael Bloomberg said Monday he was not bothered by anti-war protesters’ plans to greet him during his short trip to Ireland this week. Protest groups (Ireland Palestinian Solidarity Campaign) have said they are unhappy with Bloomberg for backing Israel in the most recent Middle East conflict, as well as his endorsement of Connecticut Sen. Joseph Lieberman, who supports the war in Iraq and is running for re-election as an independent candidate after losing in the Democratic primary. (AP Photo/Peter Morrison)
