Sign the petition – Blair must be held to account

20 August 2016

Well, clearly not that many people feel it’s important enough to haul the sociopath and war criminal Tony Blair into court for his crimes against humanity, as almost a month later and the count is now only around 16,800 people. A depressing reflection on our times don’t you think?

A new petition has been launched to bolster the campaign to hold Tony Blair to account by obtaining a House of Commons’ vote holding him in contempt of Parliament. Get 10,000 then Parliament has to respond (no response so far). Get 100,000 signatures and they have to debate it in Parliament.

Les « caprices » de Benjamin Netanyahu

Below is the Response of the Petitions Team of the British parliament concerning the petition, calling for Netanyahu’s arrest, signed by more than 107,000 British citizens and residents.

It was sent out at 9.40pm GMT on September 8, 2015.

Was pressure exerted on the petitions team to issue this abridged statement and endorsement of PM Cameron?

BLOWBACK IN IRAQ: The Rise of ISIS By Michael Faulkner

21 June 2014 — The Greanville Post

Letter from London

The term "war criminal" is bandied about often but in few cases it fits the bill as well as in this instance.  These two men belong in a dungeon, for high crimes against peace and the death of at least one million people. It is now more than eleven years since the unprovoked invasion of Iraq by the USA and Britain. Because those who planned and prosecuted that invasion, and those who supported them, continue to defend what they did with contorted and specious arguments, it is worth recalling the attempted justifications for it that were made at the time.

Former prime minister Tony Blair who has escaped prosecution as a war criminal, astonishingly still emerges from time to time, apparently oblivious to the widespread contempt in which he is held, to argue that he did the right thing and that Iraq and the wider world are far better for being rid of Saddam Hussein.  Although he and those who supported the war, including most of the British media at the time, now conveniently avoid mentioning it, the invasion of Iraq was supposedly to rid the country of weapons of mass destruction. It was not to effect regime change. Shortly before the invasion Blair himself pointedly stated that the planned invasion would be called off and Saddam could remain in power if he agreed to destroy his stockpile of WMD.

Tony Blair, Phantom of the Opera (and scum of the Earth) goes unpunished By Pepe Escobar

The scum of the Earth go unpunished

The fact that the Phantom (Tony Blair) keeps getting away with his vast desert of convoluted lies — instead of languishing in some rotten, extraordinary rendition hotel — spells out all we need to know about so-called Western “elites,” of which he’s been a faithful, and handsomely rewarded, servant.
