The Chilcot Report unredacted: Tony Blair must die to pay for the sins of the many

by | 21st, January 2015



The Chilcot Report has been mired by delay. The feel is that we are witnessing a cover-up. But do we need an inquiry to tell us that invading Iraq was wrong and based on iffy evidence? Do we need an inquiry to tell us that Tony Blair was just the head of a group who, allegedly, cooked-up reasons for what had been decided?

We know the WMDs did not exist.

We know the ‘dodgy dossier’ was cribbed from the internet. Google ‘WMD’ and present it as fact.

What are we looking for? Do we just want Blair and George Bush’s heads, to bury them and the past with it?

We should asks: why did Tony Blair and New Labour lead Britain to war in Iraq?

Well, when the question of invading Iraq was put to the elected represensatives of this country on 18 March 2003, 412 British MPs voted in favour of military intervention and only 149 voted against. Jack Straw, then the foreign secretary, says “intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.”

We went to war becsause we wanted it. Why? Well, I’d suggest mixture of pride, greed, desperations and a policy to unite the country and for Labour to look ‘good’ and ‘ethical’.

This website says . But why only him? Are you anti-Blair or anti-democratic?

Meanwhile, waiting for the Chilcot Inquiry has taken longer than it took to capture and kill Saddam Hussein and for Iraq to descend into chaos.



But wasn’t the Iraq War a success? The Ba’athist regime was ended. Barack Obama saw Iraqis voting in 2005 and voiced his “respect for the millions of Iraqis who refused to be deterred by acts of violence, and who exercised their right to vote”. Iraqis had the chance to return a mixed result. No longer would Saddam Hussein win 100% of the vote, as he had in 2002.

Trouble was the war that led to this triumph for democracy was wrong. Stripped of the despotic leader, Iraqis lacked a unifying force. Tony Blair’s plans were Middle East peace were in tatters.

(But still he tried. At the creepy World Economic Forum in Davos, the elite can catch the show “Tony Blair on religion’s role in the world”:

Session: Religion: A Pretext for Conflict? As the world sees rising conflict and intolerance from religious groups, the session will explore whether religious intolerance is actually religious.
Speakers: Tony Blair, Middle East Quartet Representative)

What we need is a public inquiry into this public inquiry. It makes sense. It’s not the issue that’s the problem; it’s the problem with the institutions charged with debating and solving the issues. Well, so they in power say every time they call for a quasi-judicial inquiry, an enlargment on the asinine call for the voting classes to ‘join the debate’. Short of ideas and confidence, they cede decision making to the judiciary.
