Tony Blair:

(9 am. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Tony, like our own leaders?, have found their excuses and justifications, they sound an awful lot like those of the bin Ladens and Saddam’s of this world!

“Iraq War was right even if there were no WMDs”

Tony Blair would have invaded Iraq even if he had known that there were no weapons of mass destruction in the country, he has admitted.

Mr Blair replied: “I would still have thought it right to remove him. I mean, obviously you would have had to use and deploy different arguments about the nature of the threat.”

He added: “I can’t really think we’d be better off with him and his two sons still in charge but it’s incredibly difficult… and that’s why I sympathise with the people who were against it for perfectly good reasons and are against it now but, for me, in the end I had to take the decision.”

Snip

At a memorial service in St Paul’s Cathedral in October to honour British military and civilian personnel who served in Iraq, Mr Blair offered his hand to Peter Brierley, whose son, Lance Corporal Shaun Brierley, was killed in 2003. Mr Brierley told him: “I’m not shaking your hand, you’ve got blood on it.”

Asked if the anger of parents like Mr Brierley was “the cross you will always have to bear”, Mr Blair said: “Let’s be clear, it’s worse for them. They have lost their child and it’s very sad. If you have lost your loved one but you think you have lost them in a cause that’s not worth it, that makes it worse.”

Snip

Elsewhere in the interview, to be broadcast this Sunday, Mr Blair said his faith was central to his life and discussed his conversion to Catholicism in 2007, after leaving office. ..>>>>>

Blair feels all the Deaths, Tens of Thousands of Iraqi, Millions of Iraqi Refugee’s, Destroyed Country and Sectarianism, 179 British Soldiers, 4370 and Counting U.S. Soldiers, and Total of 4688 Military Coalition Deaths, as well as the Tens of Thousands of Maimed, Physically and Mentally, Soldiers and Civilians was just Hon-key Dory to take down Saddam and Sons.

As well as being a part of the Human Rights Violations the U.S. was carrying out against not only our Laws but International Laws, of which we and the brits along with other countries wrote and enforced as we also condemn others who break them, on Torture and Rendition’s, the Rendition’s coming in some cases in the occupied theaters but also many from elsewhere.

UK accused of rendition over men arrested in Iraq

A legal rights charity has accused the government of misleading Parliament over two men arrested by the British military in Iraq.

Reprieve says British forces handed the men to the US military who then took them to Afghanistan in 2004.

It says one of them is a Shia rice trader and not part of a banned group linked to al-Qaeda, as ministers claim…>>>>>

Saddam, a dictator who was once good friends with as well as installed in power, with some western powers being involved! We did more to the Iraqi’s then Saddam, and his hencemen, could have dreamed of and in only a few years time, And It Continues with the BlowBack on All, Especially the coming generations, there and World Wide, from not only Iraq but the Whole Region as it’s caused major shifts and more hatreds!!

BBC Video cuts of the “Fern Britton Meets… Tony Blair” show to be shown on Sunday 13 December at 10am on BBC One.

And Blair talks about his Faith in his decision making

Tony Blair tells Fern Britton how faith influenced decisions

Where do they miss the obvious, when they speak like this, they sound just like those who we label as our enemies and terrorists!

It’s ‘righteous’ to invade another, using as just one of many excuses of WMD’s, weapons of mass destruction, as we use WMD’s, weapons of mass destruction, to destroy and kill innocent human beings to silence one!

They and All who hide behind the twisted ideologies they’ve adapted and call Righteous Religious Beliefs, his Christianity, as they pick pieces of Bible Quotes in their justifications!

Sounds just like, well we know who or whom!!

Mission Accomplished!!

    During Vietnam – He Hauled Ass

    Where is Dick Cheney’s shame? And where is the shame of the people who are supposed to be covering him?

    Dick Cheney is walking around demanding that we place our troops in harm’s way like a veteran who begged for combat, then won the Congressional Medal of Honor for his service. The way he’s strutting around, lecturing America and saber-rattling for war, one would never know that when the nation called for him to serve, he ran like a weasel on high potency steroids to avoid military service – and the mainstream media is just as gutless as he is for not pointing that out.

    What’s passing for the press in this country has proven without a doubt, that they’ve literally degenerated into a group of glorified ambulance chasers. They’ve been staked out under Tiger woods’ toilet seat for the last week trying to get an exclusive on Tiger’s sex life.  At the same time, they’re completely ignoring the most pertinent news in the nation – a draft dodger and former CEO of a major military/industrial corporation pressuring the president to rush our troops into harm’s way…>>>>>

    for war crimes. Somehow  I don’t think the little wanker would go off the board with the same dignity!

    • justCal on December 12, 2009 at 5:57 pm

    Yeah,that’s the ticket.Just make up a different set of lies.

    I hope the world never lets that smarmy slime-ball Tony Blair of the hook for his role as Bush’s enabler and accomplice in crimes against humanity.

    They should both be in the dock at The Hague.

    A Bill Moyers Essay

    December 11, 2009

    “The Merchant of Death is Dead”

    BILL MOYERS: Many people are perplexed that Barack Obama flew to Oslo this week to receive the Nobel Peace Prize so soon after escalating the war in Afghanistan. He’s now doubled the number of troops that were there when George W. Bush left office. The irony was not lost on the president, and he tried to address it in his acceptance speech…Rest of Transcript

    Kent State protest scene nominated as historic site

    Guardsmen, in the background, walk off Blanket Hill at Kent State University as civilians come to the aid of one of the wounded after the shootings on May 4, 1970.

    It’s not unusual for a battlefield to be declared a historic site, but it’s rare when the scene of a protest qualifies for that distinction.

    But what happened at Kent State University on May 4, 1970, is indeed history.

    Ohio officials want to recognize that by nominating 17 acres on campus to the National Register of Historic Places…>>>>>

    it would warm my heart to see Blair in an orange jump suit and in the docket at a war crimes tail at the Hague, it will NEVER be enough for the horror and pain that he and the Bush cabal of war criminals have wrecked on the world. I don’t believe in hell but if there is one I hope they rot in it.

    Blair Iraq war admission sparks fresh outrage

    Tony Blair’s admission that Britain would have backed the Iraq war even if he knew it did not have weapons of mass destruction (WMD) sparked outrage Sunday and calls for his prosecution for war crimes.

    The former prime minister, who backed the US-led invasion in 2003, told the BBC it would “still have been right to remove” Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein because of the threat he posed to the region.

    Lawyers representing the deposed Iraqi leadership said they would seek to prosecute Blair following his remarks, while one newspaper commentator said it was a “game-changing admission” for the ongoing official inquiry into the war.

    Former UN weapons inspector Hans Blix added: “The war was sold on the WMD, and now you feel, or hear that it was only a question of deployment of arguments, as he said, it sounds a bit like a fig leaf that was held up.”…>>>>>

    Add this to my diary from yesterday, knew his comments would piss off more then myself, how far and how mad are the people of Britain, lets hope much more than us!!

  1. Thank you.
