Tony Blair: Apology NOT Accepted!

Apology Brings A Bad Taste To The Mouth Doesn't It Tony!

Apology Brings A Bad Taste To The Mouth Doesn’t It Tony!

Tony Blair has finally come out and ‘apologised’ for his part in taking Britain into the Iraq war, but to me his apology is worthless. If he thinks that all he needs to do after twelve years is apologise and then all is forgiven, then to my mind he is woefully wrong. Noteworthy is that he apologised on American CNN, not a programme in this country! He alone is responsible for all the misery that Britain has had to undergo since he became Prime Minister.

Not only do I blame him for the deaths of our soldiers in the unjustified war against Saddam Hussein, but he is also deeply responsible for the rise of terrorism that is currently inflicting so many countries across the world. I also blame him for the destruction of our country from the inside when he opened the gates to migrants from across the world.

Although he has apologised, he still does not accept any real blame for the Iraq war, for to him the fault lay with ‘faulty intelligence’ he received. In the CNN interview he said, “I apologise for the fact that the intelligence we received was wrong,” I would have thought that any sane leader would check intelligence reports thoroughly before taking the country to war, but this whole saga was based on data ‘manipulated’  to give the impression that Saddam had nuclear weapons.

I have to say that all the blame for the war does not fall on his shoulders for the man equally responsible was President George W. Bush who led America into the war. There is no doubt that these two people colluded to bring down Saddam.

Both these two leaders went into the war to win, and they did, but neither of them had thought about what to do in the country after they won. This naturally led to chaos in Iraq. Blair said in the interview, “I apologise for some of the mistakes in planning and, certainly, our mistake in our understanding of what would happen once you removed the (Saddam’s) regime.”

Chilcot ReportIt has been speculated that the sole reason behind Blair’s public ‘apology’ is the hopefully soon to be released Chilcot Report that has looked into all aspects of the Iraq War. It is expected to be a damning report that clearly shows the ineptitude of those in power at the time.

The public have been waiting for six years for this report that has been held back time and again, but is ‘due to be published soon’. Lets hope it is.

The reason for the delays in publication have been given as  “Maxwellisation”, under which those who may face criticism – believed to include Mr Blair – are given the opportunity to respond before publication. To me this approach just gives the guilty parties time to think up any number of excuses for their behaviour, like Blair now.

Blair did not openly admit to the Iraq war being mainly responsible for the wave of terrorist violence that has caused so many problems in all parts of the world, but he did say,  ‘I think there are elements of truth in that.” He added: “Of course you can’t say those of us who removed Saddam in 2003 bear no responsibility for the situation in 2015.”

With regard to the whole Iraq war episode I believe that people like Blair and Bush, plus those who worked with them like Cheney and Rumsfeld should all be brought to account for what they did. Blair in particular should be chained to a wall in the deepest dungeon in the Tower of London  and stay there for the rest of his miserable life.

Too Many Immigrants? How Can That Be?

Too Many Immigrants? How Can That Be?

I say this not only because of his Iraq war record, but more for the destruction he has wrought on this country with his ‘Multi-Cultural Britain’ programme that has seen many millions of immigrants pouring into the country to drain all its resources dry and destroy our way of life. For this he should be hung, drawn and quartered, but that’s another story.
