    <center><h1><font color=maroon>Tony Blair...A sinking political ship?</font></h1></center>

    <a href=http://www.timesonline.co.uk/printFriendly/0,,1-523-1592904-523,00.html>New documents</a> reveal that Tony Blair was complicit in setting the stage for war with Iraq. These documents show that PM Blair was committed to regime change in Iraq along with the Bush administration, this despite the fact that Lord Goldsmith, British AG, repeatedly warned him that such action could be illegal as early as 2002. Other documents show that Britain, folowing the lead of the US, had to somehow "create" the necessary pretext for war with Iraq.

    As if this wasn't enough, Admiral Sir Michael Boyce, former Chief of the Defence Staff, <a href=http://observer.guardian.co.uk/politics/story/0,6903,1474276,00.html>voiced concerns</a> about not having legal cover should war crimes charges be brought before the International Criminal Court. Admiral Boyce stated that he had never seen Lord Goldsmith's initial, very qualified, advice about the legality of war with Iraq. Admiral Boyce further stated that if he, as well as officers and enlisted personel who served in Iraq wound up serving prison terms, he would make sure "...Other perople were brought into the frame as well...". When pressed as to whetehr he meant Tony Blair and Lord Goldsmith, he replied, "Too bloody right."

    Tony Blair's political ship is about to have its belly ripped open on the shoals of this damning evidence regarding the legality of the war in Iraq. When Blair's ship founders, can Dubbyuh's be far behind? One can only hope.

    Excellent! Since Iraq has been such a success, er, I mean, FAILURE, these documents will indeed spell his doom... so says the ghost of Dan Rather.


    You mean the UN passed a law as early as 2002 making regime change in Iraq illegal, or he was 'warned' it was illegal in 2002? Either way, it's funny how 'illegal' means what Russia, China, and France says these days.

    Haha, your kidding me, didn't Saddam create enough dead bodies yet?

    Always some former chief of something, like Ramsey Clark on the US side of moonbats, to bring up the ICC. How's that Milosovich trial going for almost a decade now going??? What a joke!

    Some Lord giving advice on International legality, and an Admiral going down with the ship and pledging to take everyone else with them, its sooo very British. :cof:


    One can only lay off the metaphores!

    Holy freakin crap!

    You mean Tony Blair wanted Regime change in Iraq?!?! That scoundral. How dare he think its appropriate to take out a ruthless dictator who murders, rapes, and tortures his own people! Doesn't he know its illegal to speak out for Democracy in the middle east! I mean the nerve of that guy. Who does he think he is, the Prime Minister of Great Britain?

    Bully. This is a good thing.
    There are annoying, irrational, anti west libs in Britain as well, that's all this shows.

    When your counselor is an annoying lib, ignore him. Words to live by.
