The report on the Chilcot Report
By Mike Smith
7th of July 2016
I have been following the Chilcot report’s release yesterday seven years after it was initially convened.
For those who do not know, it is about Tony Blair’s lap-dog backing of George Bush to invade Iraq in 2003, together with over forty “coalition” countries, without UN support or backing.
Despite the 12 volumes and 2,6 million words, there is not much new in the report. It is what we said all along. These lying bastards flagrantly and illegally violated international law to destroy the cradle of civilization, invade a nonbelligerent country and rape it for control and profit.
There were no links between Al Qaida and Iraq. There were no weapons of mass destruction. Sadam Hussein posed no imminent threat to the West and the war was totally avoidable and of course the intelligence agencies knew that it would make terrorism worse, which it did.
They call that “intelligence”, when anybody with half a brain could have told them that.
Blair acted internally on his own, willfully lied, mislead parliament, his senior ministers and Britain’s public - inventing a nonexistent threat “with a certainty that was not justified,” said Chilcot.
The War on Iraq was entirely based on lies and followed up with genocidal crimes, yet neither Bush nor Blair will be held accountable or ever be tried for crimes against humanity.
Between 150,000 and 1 million dead Iraqi’s, Depending on which study you want to believe (casualties of the Iraq war) , 4,500 dead American soldiers, 179 dead Brits before the UK pulled out in 2009, 139 dead from other countries and 1,500 mercenary “contractors” dead…and the lying bastard Tony Blair is unrepentant, According to him the world is a better place today.
Yes...It is...and because of idiots like Tony Blair I have to take off my belt at every damn airport check-in in the world today.
Everytime I think about the Americans and the Brits in the Middle East I have to think about what Colonel Younghusband said.
Sir George John Younghusband was a British cavalry officer who fought in India, Afghanistan, Burma, wounded in the Second Anglo Boer War and finally fought in the First World War. In 1908 he wrote a book called “The Story of the Guides” in which he quoted a Pathan (Pashtun) saying.
For those who do not know, The Pashtuns are an extremely warlike race who loves fighting. They are classified as “East Iranian”, but found in Northern India, Pakistan and are the majority population of Afghanistan today. These are the people from the mountains between Afghanistan and Pakistan, the “Mujahedeen”.
For the Pathan saying is: “First comes one Englishman, as a traveller or for shikar (hunting); then comes two and make a map; then comes an army and takes the country. It is better therefore to kill the first Englishman.”
