In this video, Nick Clegg admits that Tony Blair took Britain into an illegal war.
If this is the case ( which in my view it is ). Then shouldn,t Tony Blair and the rest of his cabinet be arrested as war criminals?

Just to add this does not mean Blair and co should be up in front of a judge, just because one MP says its illegal. The Depute PM is not a judge.

Putting anything to do with the officiial story of 911 or WMDs on the aliens and UFO forum is giving the aliens and UFO's a bad name...
No one will ever believe they're real now....

Cameron said the twin towers were blown up the other day...
the truth is coming out...

Rag head hating murderers are in the minoroty...soon when the global eugenicists who started these illegal immoral wars have their way, the people who supported this travesty won't be a problem to the remnants of the real human race anymore...

minions die hard
globalists hate them even more than victims.

No his official title is the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland sometimes also called the first sectary of the state. He is not “joint pm” no matter what the daily mail is telling you.

Explanation: Uhm? Surely you jest???


Clegg blasts 'illegal' Iraq war [theaustralian.com.au]


Downing Street distanced itself. "The Coalition government has not expressed a view on the legality of the Iraq conflict," a No 10 spokesman said. "But that does not mean individual members of the government should not express their individual views."

The spokesman said the inquiry was examining the war's legal basis.

But a spokesman for the Chilcot inquiry said it would not pass judgment on legality. "The inquiry will address the process by which legal advice was sought and provided, and will consider the international law arguments and the way they were presented," he said.


Please note that the Underline is my edit for emphasis... They don't get to self assess on this issue PERIOD! Here is why...

Iraq war illegal, says Annan ( Last Updated: Thursday, 16 September, 2004, 09:21 GMT 10:21 UK)
[news.bbc.co.uk]



The United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan has told the BBC the US-led invasion of Iraq was an illegal act that contravened the UN charter.
He said the decision to take action in Iraq should have been made by the Security Council, not unilaterally.

Oh you weren't jesting...

OP, I'm sure there is still time.
Can you please change the thread title to something more accurate?
Not "British PM", but "deputy PM".
Not "admit", but "repeated what he has been saying for ages".

Explanation: The UNited Nations does by authorization by all signed member parties to the UN Charter under Chptr 7.

CHAPTER VII: ACTION WITH RESPECT TO THREATS TO THE PEACE, BREACHES OF THE PEACE, AND ACTS OF AGGRESSION [un.org]


Article 39
The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace, breach of the peace, or act of aggression and shall make recommendations, or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42, to maintain or restore international peace and security.



Article 51
Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defence shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security.


I note that the UK attacked Iraq 1st!!!
