The long-delayed Chilcot inquiry report announced to day while the world commemorates 10 years of illegal war in Iraq they will not publish crucial pledges Blair made to Bush in the run up to that war which I translate as; Oh oops if we as representatives of the ruling elite, speak the truth we’re all going to jail.
To date 1 million + Iragi civilians have lost their lives, more than 4 million were displaced internally while a more or less equal number fled to neighboring countries and to this day car bombs and violence mar Iraq’s non existent peace. US and NATO military bases litter the country and even the 10 anniversary was marred by another bomb killing some 58 people.
We all know that the war was illegal and that it was for Oil and not to “free” the Iraqi population from their dictator whom the West had propped up for decennia or because they were involved in the events of 911 and recently even the GOP leadership now says the war was for Oil. In fact we know that the war against Iran was planned long before the events of 911 and so were the wars against Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and Iran.
So in order to commemorate this atrocity I would like to share with you again an audio recording of our own war criminal in chief (If it had been up to him NZ soldiers would have been dying there too coming back with suicide on their mind because they are racked with guilt and PTSD for what they had done and witnessed.) who in a high hysterical voice screams with rage as the Government of that time at least publicly declines to take part in what will be remembered as an illegal war of conquest and aggression with the goal to destroy and rob an entire people of its resources and culture.
Ladies and gentleman I give you John Key:
