Blair should be persecuted and tried for being a war criminal.

Tell us something we didn't know. Still, the most damning report on a British Prime Minister in history... All of those 150000 Iraqi civilian casualties, the complete destruction of Iraqi infrastructure and subsequent displacement of its people... Hussein was a fucking lunatic but he kept the place together for thirty years, now look at all this sectarian violence, the rise of the Islamic State, etc. still makes my blood boil a decade onwards. Weapons of mass destruction, yeah, alright, Tony.

I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

whatever. justice is overrated and even blair was indicted hed just be a scapegoat for the crimes of a political machinery much larger than he ever was.

westerners have all this mock outrage thats for some reason never channeled into actually helping the people theyre outraged for. most people whose blood this makes boil dont actually care about iraq or the middle east.

In hindsight, toppling Hussein seems like a huge, huge mistake now, same with Gaddafi in Libya

You can't just conquer a country, install a democracy and leave, hoping everyone is going to buy into the system

Blair's a real odious little cunt. Not a patch on my man Corbyn.
