It’s official. Tony Blair (pictured above as Hitler in the British paper The Daily Mail), former Prime Minister of the once-great nation of the United Kingdom, has been branded a liar and a murderer by current Prime Minister Gordon Brown’s Chilcot Inquiry, and by a British national press that has lost its collective senses. The leftist British government’s fear of Muslim mass violence as retaliation for resisting England’s ongoing Islamization is now greater than the fear of incremental surrender to the Forces of Islam, and what that surrender will eventually bring to the English people – Sharia.
Blair testified eloquently and convincingly Friday, reiterating that he believes that toppling Saddam Hussein was the correct course of action. The members of Inquiry were not of a mind to be swayed by his arguments and Chilcot himself held out two opportunities for Blair to express remorse. Courageously, Blair stuck to his guns and refused to acquiesce.
With video included of parts of Blair’s testimony, The TimesUK Online story is here:
“Tony Blair was branded a murderer and liar last night after he ended his historic appearance before the Iraq inquiry with a blank refusal to voice regrets over toppling Saddam Hussein.
After six hours in which the Chilcot inquiry team had largely failed to breach his defences, the former Prime Minister brought trouble on himself by failing to show the contrition that his critics wanted.
Mr Blair, who gave a fluent, assured performance, refused to apologise for going to war, said that he would do the same again, and then warned that today’s leaders might have to take similar action to disarm Iran…”
This story is far from finished and it bears close watching here in America. Is Mr. Blair headed for a War crimes trial in The Netherlands for leading The UK into an “illegal” war? That is a specialty of the International Criminal Court (ICC), to which many on the Left in the United States want to cede and surrender our national judicial authority.
This month President Obama very quietly made the offices and records of Interpol sovereign and exempt from American law enforcement by amending Ronald Reagan’s Executive Order 12425. Interpol is the investigative arm of the ICC. Why would he do that and then refuse to discuss it with reporters?
And a more troubling question arises: If, in the worst case, Mr. Blair becomes a defendant at The Hague, what does that mean for President Bush and Vice President Cheney? Keep your eye on this story, ladies and gentlemen. Do not believe for a second that something like this cannot happen here.
