What everybody with two braincells to rub together already knew before Bush and Blair took us to war in Iraq is now confirmed by the conclusion of the Chilcot Inquiry: The War on Iraq was illegal!
The problem is what are we going to do about it since one of the main protagonists in the lead up to war Blair is now a much valued bankster asset going about his business of making loads of money setting up “dictators” to be killed and countries to be looted.
Too bad for the million Iraqi’s who died and the millions who fled their country and the other millions who were displaced inside of Iraq.
Perhaps this delay is in part because the Blair government was advised before the war by all 27 attorneys in their Foreign Affairs Office that war on Iraq was unlawful. That would mean armed attack on Iraq would be an unlawful War of Aggression, with identical criminal implication on US armed attack on Iraq.
Public understanding that current wars “on terror” are not even close to lawful would end these wars. War law forbids all armed attack unless under attack by another nation’s government.
As I wrote in 2010:
All the lawyers in the UK’s Foreign Affairs Department concluded the US/UK invasion of Iraq was an unlawful War of Aggression. Their expert advice is the most qualified to make that legal determination; all 27 of them were in agreement. This powerful judgment of unlawful war follows the Dutch government’s recent unanimous report and UN Secretary General Kofi Annan’s clear statements.
This stunning information was disclosed at the UK Chilcot inquiry by the testimony of Foreign Affairs leading legal advisor, Sir Michael Wood, who added that the reply from Prime Minister Tony Blair’s office to his legal department’s professional work was chastisement for putting their unanimous legal opinion in writing.
