He was never pushed on the legality of the war, he was never goingto be and there he was during his “ripe for an oscar” “je ne regretterien” performance telling us all that “many of the arguments that ledhim to confront the “profoundly wicked,almost psychopathic” Saddam Hussein seven years ago now applied to theregime in Tehran.” Oh, and there must be some truth in that because only a few hours later we have the dotty old Zionist, Shimon Peres telling Yukia Amano, the new IAEA chief that “a nuclear Iran poses a threat to the entire world.”
Ofcourse, the incoherent, incohessive, inconclusive verbal diarrhea thatPeres and Blair spout out is not to be taken seriously: Or at least thenonsense that Iran is a threat to world peace is not to be takenseriously. However, the frequency with which this crap is being voicedby the neo-conservatives and Zionists and the infrequency with which itis being challenged in the West should be taken seriously. All the moreso since the real challenge, a challenge regarding the legitimacy of an illegal war,suffered a major defeat yesterday. Of course, that never really was part of the remit or at least it appears not to be part of a remit which was “…… to examine the United Kingdom’sinvolvement in Iraq, including the way decisions were made and actionstaken, to establish as accurately and reliably as possible whathappened, and to identify lessons that can be learned.” Nevertheless, we might safely conclude that Britain’s involvement in Iraq was illegal, that the decisions made by Blair disregarded legal advice and that the main lesson learned is the one that has been learned by the warmongers and that is that there will be no consequences for them when it comes to ignoring international law when they and their minions launch an attack against Iran.
