Blair, War, Olympic Deals, and a Glimpse of Another Britain

For this reason, Coe’s mention of “reconciliation” is profane, as if there were an equivalence between an invading superpower and its victims. His letter exemplifies the London Olympics’ razor-wired, PR-and-money-fueled totalitarian state within a state, which you enter, appropriately, through a Westfield mega shopping mall. How dare you complain about the missiles on the roof of your flats, hectored a magistrate to 86 residents of London’s East End. How dare any of you protest at the “ZIL car lanes,” reminiscent of Moscow in the Soviet era, for Olympic apparatchiks and the boys from Dow and Coke. With the media in charge of Olympics excitement, as it was for Shock and Awe in Iraq in 2003, now enter the man who played a starring role in making both spectacles possible. http://original.antiwar.com/pilger/2012/07/22/blair-war-olympic-deals-and-a-glimpse-of-another-britain/

Tony Blair is a Pariah in His Own Land

He was arsenic in the party’s bloodstream for a reason so self-evident that it doesn’t much matter what Chilcot concludes. Everyone, or almost everyone, knows it all anyway: that he struck the deal with Bush long before he admits; that it was mendacious drivel to claim Jacques Chirac refused to countenance a second UN resolution “under any circumstances”; that the intelligence was cynically stripped of all caveats for political purposes; and that, in terms of foreign policy catastrophe, Iraq makes Suez seem a trifling diplomatic gaffe on a par with mis-seating the Panamanian ambassador at a banquet. Call it an atrocious strategic misjudgment, a dementedly misguided Neocon experiment, a war crime or whatever, it is perfectly well understood in these child-like terms: Mr Blair did a truly terrible thing, with unspeakably terrible consequences for the people of Iraq, the troops killed and maimed in prosecuting his folly. http://www.independent.co.uk/opinion/commentators/matthew-norman/matthew-norman-dont-forget-why-tony-blair-is-a-pariah-in-his-own-land-7953427.html

Bush, Blair Found Guilty of War Crimes

The Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Tribunal found the former heads of state guilty after a four-day hearing. A seven-member panel chaired by former Malaysian Federal Court judge Abdul Kadir Sulaiman presided over the trial. The five panel tribunal unanimously decided that the former U.S. and British leaders had committed crimes against peace and humanity, and also violated international law when they ordered the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. The prosecutors at the hearing ruled that the invasion of Iraq was a flagrant abuse of law, and act of aggression which amounted to a mass murder of the Iraqi people. http://www.presstv.ir/detail/211548.html

Zionist Sock Puppet Tony Blair Praises Mubarak as ‘Immensely Courageous and a Force for Good’

The former prime minister, now an envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, praised Mubarak over his role in the negotiations and said the West was right to back him despite his authoritarian regime because he had maintained peace with Israel. But that view is likely to anger many Egyptians who believe they have had to endure decades of dictatorship because the U.S. put Israel’s interests ahead of their freedom. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/feb/02/tony-blair-mubarak-courageous-force-for-good-egypt/print

After Half-Hearted Apology on Iraq, Blair Urges Attack on Iran

Blair insisted the Iranians “disagree fundamentally with our way of life” and that they had to be answered with military force of arms. He added that it was time for America and Britain to “get our heads out of the sand” and attack Iran. It suggests then that Blair’s “regrets” don’t imply a lesson learned, as his case for war with Iran, which he seems just as eager to start as the war with Iraq, is based on many of the same false allegations and mindless jingoism. http://news.antiwar.com/2011/01/21/after-half-hearted-apology-on-iraq-blair-urges-attack-on-iran/

Israel’s Shameless Mouthpiece

In yet another revealing speech, this time delivered at a symposium at IDC University in Herzliya, Tony Blair has exposed himself for what he truly is; not a “peace envoy” by any stretch of the imagination but a shameless mouthpiece for the State of Israel. Just days before direct negotiations are due to take place in the Middle East, in which he is supposed to be taking a neutral stance representing the Quartet (UN, EU, Russia and the USA), Blair has taken it upon himself to set aside any pretence of impartiality and reaffirm his “passion” for Israel. He has taken on the role of Israel’s defence attorney to plead with the world to try to empathise with Israel and to understand Israel’s point of view when it commits atrocities, human rights abuses and breaches of international law. http://uruknet.com/?p=m69284&hd=&size=1&l=e

I ask this one simple question. Which has been proven to be more destructive? Arab/Persian weapons of mass destruction, or Blair/Bush/Obama/netanyahu weapons of mass deception? Oh yeah, they did not find any weapons of mass destruction!!

Blood Money

Sometimes a topic simply will not go away. These weeks, Anthony Charles Lynton Blair, Q.C., former Prime Minister, alleged potential war criminal, surreal Middle East Peace Envoy – who led an administration who shared responsibility for, if not quite rivers of blood, bloodied market places, mosques, squares, homes, humans, hospitals, beyond counting – just keeps coming back and back. http://uruknet.com/?p=m69058&hd=&size=1&l=e

Tony Blair Must Be Prosecuted

Tony Blair must be prosecuted, not indulged like his mentor Peter Mandelson. Both have produced self-serving memoirs for which they have been paid fortunes. Blair’s will appear next month and earn him £4.6 million. Now consider Britain’s Proceeds of Crime Act. Blair conspired in and executed an unprovoked war of aggression against a defenseless country, which the Nuremberg judges in 1946 described as the “paramount war crime.” This has caused, according to scholarly studies, the deaths of more than a million people, a figure that exceeds the Fordham University estimate of deaths in the Rwandan genocide. http://original.antiwar.com/pilger/2010/08/04/tony-blair-must-be-prosecuted/

Blair Slithers Off the Hook Again

During his interview — which was less of an interrogation and more like a cozy chat in an establishment gentlemen’s club — Blair used the opportunity to rail against Iran, giving the impression that were he still prime minister that’s where he would be heading next. Iran, he said, was a country linked up with terrorist groups. He also blamed Iranian interference for the coalition’s post-invasion failures. It must be said that all of the above is cosmetic to the nitty-gritty of the inquiry’s raison d’etre: to discover whether or not Britain was dragged into a war of aggression, which the prime minister knew was illegal under international law. http://onlinejournal.com/artman/publish/article_5537.shtml
