IRAQ WAR WAS UNJUSTIFIABLE SAYS LORD PRESCOTT– In what appears to be an almost unbelievable admission to guilt over the war with Iraq, Lord Prescott has admitted that the UK was coerced into the war by George W. Bush through the reasoning that the U.S. could bring peace to the Middle East.
“I go through my thoughts trying to justify it, but it cannot be justified as an intervention.” Lord Prescott, BBC Interview
After 10 years Lord Prescott has now finally admitted that the war was unjustified and therefore illegal.
During the conflict the UK experience heavy losses of life within its Armed Forces, although this was a shadow compared to the 100,000 plus loss of life the Iraq’s suffered during the conflict.
It was earlier this week that the then Prime Minister, Tony Blair, also admitted that the war was unjust however he went on to say that the Middle East would have been far worse off if Saddam Hussain has been left in power.
It was of course the U.S. Government that put Saddam into power in the first place and it would appear, because he wouldn’t play ball with his oil reserves, the U.S, under George W. Bush, hatched a plan to remove him and 9/11 was the perfect excuse to rally public support for what is tantamount to an illegal invasion.
Tony Blair, in his usual style of indifference, refuses to apologies for all those he effectively murdered, not just of our own troops but of the 100,000 Iraq’s that paid the ultimate price for his deception.
The full story of exactly what went on with Tony Blair and George W. Bush is likely to ever remain a secret, but what cannot be hidden is the fact that they both colluded with one another in order to dupe the U.N into sanctioning an illegal war.
Now that the UK and the U.S has a clear admission of guilt what is the next step? There are many advocate groups that are in favour of both Tony Blair and George W. Bush standing trail at the Hague for War Crimes and Crimes Against Humanity. Is this ever likely to happen? I would have to sadly say not, as there are many influential and powerful individuals, especially within the Arms Manufacturing industry, that would inevitably get dragged into the fiasco.
Regardless of the clear evidence of the crimes committed, it is likely the key players and instigators, George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Tony Blair and Lord Prescott will never see the inside of a court room nor being incarcerated for the war crimes, by their own admission, have clearly committed.
