  1. RUBBISH! It’s ony lies if he knew it was lies. He didn’t. He believed it, as did the rest of the international community. Read Christopher Meyer’s thoughts on this, and he is hardly a fan of the Iraq invasion.

  2. believing a donkey is behind is behind a wall doesnt follow that a donkey really is behind a wall. How can one mans criteria of truth and false be based on his belief on whether its true or not. if truth or falsehood circulated based on on peoples opinions then truth would not be what it is. Truth or falsehood stand independent of peoples changing opinions.

  3. It’s been like this for thousands of years.

  4. Jawad,

    Are you really saying that, (attack notwithstanding), there should never be any circumstances under which a country or leader should conclude that there is a need to attack in order to defend?

    If so, that means that war is only EVER declared AFTER it has already been started by the attacking enemy.

    I see that as an adbication of responsibility. Especially since the first duty of a democratically elected government is to defend its citizens.

    Saddam was a proven killer with WMDs of his own people. He had defied the UN for years, and invaded and murdered over a 30 year period.

    What are we supposed to conclude? Oh, I know … that none of Saddam’s history mattered, because he hadn’t done it to us.

    First they came for the Jews
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for the Communists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a Communist.
    Then they came for the trade unionists
    and I did not speak out
    because I was not a trade unionist.
    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left
    to speak out for me.

  5. “keeptonyblair”, there’s really no arguing with you as you’ve regurgitated those same tired talking points that they programmed into you back in 2002. Insha’allah you might wake up someday.

  6. I was told by an insider that the Bush administration cherry picked intelligence. Yes, countries should go to war if there is a significant threat but the Bush administration knew Iraq was not a threat, hence the mistake.

  7. To Baba,

    I am not and never have been a Labour voter, believe it or not. Probably not, I’m sure, as you seem to be programmed to disbelieve other people. Personally I believe Blair. As a premier he was the best, and as a man, I believe, honest.

    To juhah,

    Ah well … “you were told by an insider”. Hhmmm …

    Ri-i-i-ght!

  8. Oh, btw, Baba, please speak to me in a language I understand. THAT’S ENGLISH, as spoken in Britain.

    I don’t recognise your reference.

    Oh, hang on a minute I DO recall some madman using it in Regent’s Park in June when, surrounded by our too tolerant police he screamed – “Insha’allah – Tony Blair will come back from the Middle East in a box. How you do, it us up to you”.

    ENOUGH!

    It’s also in mainstream media.

    “It’s obvious the intelligence was wrong and the administration cherry-picked intelligence.”

  10. juhah,

    The link you refer to is to a story which is over a year old, from Nov 2006. Don’t recall hearing much about this great investigation! And Waxman, a democrat, might just have had a party political motive here. No? Pure as the driven snow, eh?

    Ah, but wait … quote from the site:
    ……………………………………

    ‘But Waxman said in an interview that investigating those issues now might not serve any purpose. “It’s obvious the intelligence was wrong and the administration cherry-picked intelligence. … Those failures are obvious. I don’t know what would be gained by going over some of those areas,” he said.’
    ……………………………………

    All that would be gained from investigating the “obvious” is that things are not always as obvious as they look. Waxman would have come unstuck, and he knew it.

    Politics is complicated and multi-layered.

    And if they’re all bast**ds, give me OUR bast***s any day.

  11. So all because you doubt it, that makes it false?

    I’ll admit, politics is always hairy but sometimes you have to admit that someone might be right.

  12. True, juhah. And sometimes – just sometimes, mind you (!), it’s the politicians who are right.

    Hard to believe, but they are held up to greater scrutiny (at least in democracies) than the crazed press with their own agendas, or the disaffected, disappointed former civil servant or demoted politician.
