Poor Tony Blair – Victim of an Illegal War in Iraq

Lord Hutton - Patron Saint of Apologists

Lord Hutton - Patron Saint of Apologists

Introduction Part 1 of 3

The invasion of Iraq was illegal. Every applicable law unequivocally confirms this conclusion. There are no grey areas, no extenuating circumstances. Not according to the law.

When Tony Blair and George Bush decided to abandon the United Nations and launch their aggressive war against Iraq in March, 2003 they committed themselves to the most serious of all breaches of International law, “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole”, as defined by the prosecutors at Nuremberg following the defeat of the Nazis.

Apologising for Blair

Despite the long since uncovered lies, the deceit and corruption, the intensifying violence of the state, the broken lives, shattered families, splintered society, breakdown of law and order, looting and collapse of the economy and disenfranchisement of the people under a nightmare parody of democracy, there remains a small body of loyalists who cover their eyes, block off their ears, hold their noses and speak sweetly and softly of the warmonger, the serial bomber, the self-obsessed man monster who is Tony Blair.

Blair – The Making of a Monster

Tony Blair’s progression from a privileged, Tory leaning, guitar wielding attention seeker into Britain’s most corrupt politician and notorious war criminal is set out in a 2007 article by BBC political reporter Brian Wheeler.

Being a BBC piece, it smoothly glosses over or skips entirely many of Blair’s worst crimes but it is useful in collating much information about Blair’s early years.

Blair, “a pretty straight sort of a guy”?

Bernie Ecclestone

Bernie Ecclestone

In assembling a list of Tony Blair’s top ten lies to the British people, Iraq and Saddam’s fabled weapons of mass destruction would surely top the charts. This was the lie that finally knocked Blair’s halo askew in the eyes of the public. Until that point many took him at his word when he claimed he was “a pretty straight sort of a guy”.

A liar would say that, wouldn’t he? A dishonest man is hardly going to admit his dishonesty, it’s simply not in his nature.

When thinking back to Bernie Ecclestone’s purchase of Tony Blair, New Labour’s first major scandal though certainly not the last, the sum of £1,000,000 probably jumps into your head. That was the amount Ecclestone donated to Blair’s party in secret in January, 1997 before Blair became the PM.

Unholy Alliance, Blair and Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch

Rupert Murdoch

In his latest article in the New Statesmen John Pilger recalls some of the worst journalistic breaches of integrity by Rupert Murdoch’s “news” papers and remembers a young “aspiring war criminal” who, at an early stage of his political ascent, made it his business to court favour with the dangerously influential press baron.

The starry-eyed acolyte conveyed first-class to Australia was Tony Blair. He spoke of “the need for a new moral purpose in politics.” The rest is history and since that day millions of people around the planet have tasted Blair’s morality first-hand, many of them as they prayed whilst his bombs fell on their heads.

The Blair Years – I See Dead People

When Tony Blair swept into office in May, 1997 he was hailed by the media as a “new dawn” and the remedy to the eighteen years of a Conservative government irrevocably tarnished by corruption and scandal. “Things can only get better”, promised Blair and the crowds roared in approval and anticipation.

Two and a half thousand miles away in Iraq, a desperate population was struggling through another year of brutal economic sanctions, the toughest ever imposed by the United Nations. Iraq remained shattered following the first Gulf War during which American and British bombers had destroyed the entire national infrastructure including roads, bridges, factories, water treatment plants, power stations and any other facilities essential to a modern society. Raw sewage ran through the streets, electrical power fizzled randomly and could never be relied upon. In the hopelessly undermanned and overwhelmed hospitals doctors struggled with an explosion of diseases and fought vainly against a cancer rate that had increased twelvefold due to the war coalition’s use of uranium based weapons of mass destruction.

Bomber Blair and Yugoslavia

Tony Blair’s record of bombing nations to enforce his “values” and “liberate” his victims did not begin in Iraq in 2003.

Although he heartily enforced the murderous sanctions levied against Iraq following the end of the first Gulf War, sanctions that denied basic humanitarian supplies to innocent civilians and resulted in many thousands of deaths, his first large scale military aggression fell on Serbia, once a federal unit of Yugoslavia. With Blair’s full support NATO launched a 78 day blitz against Serbia in 1999.

Guide to War Law

These are the foundation documents which, when compared to the actions of Tony Blair and his government since 2002, make a compelling case to suggest he should at least answer charges of committing war crimes and genocide.

Chris Coverdale Sets the Scene

This is a lengthy talk by Chris Coverdale, the man who after many attempts finally forced the police to open an investigation into the criminal behaviour of the British government in agitating for and prosecuting an illegal war against Iraq. Of course the police managed to find reasons for dropping the investigation, no surprise there, but Chris persists in his campaign to hold our politicians accountable to the same laws they insist we are bound by.

In this video Chris describes the nature of the crimes committed by Blair and his government and explains the laws that potentially make us all accomplices should we continue to turn a blind eye to the great crimes that are conducted in our name.
