this report should be used in evidence to convict Blair and Bush and their drones for war crimes !
what is the death toll for iraq standing at now over 1million surely !

Oh wait cant they use the double jeopardy ruling to get out of this one , or does that only apply to those that have previously been taken to court.

Seriosuly if this document is a government document and implicates Blair and his administration , with ties to the US , the UN should start a tribunal and take these scumbags to jail for life

or my personal preference , sacrafice them into a volcano !
(second thought maybe best not to might anger the earth )

Lets just have them publicly tried and executed in Iraq for war crimes against humanity , we can hang draw and quarter them and have their heads on pikes at the entrance to Baghdad , and their hearts and other organs sent to the corners of Iraq .
Just my personal opinion on what should happen to them

Nice find!

"We were determined to get a fair slice of the action for UK companies in a post-Saddam Iraq," he said, according to minutes of the meeting which could not be independently verified.

A month later, the Foreign Office invited BP again to discuss opportunities in Iraq "post regime change", the newspaper said.

"Baroness Symons agreed that it would be difficult to justify British companies losing out in Iraq in that way if the UK had itself been a conspicuous supporter of the U.S. government throughout the crisis," the newspaper cited minutes of a meeting with BP, Shell and BG Group (BG.L) as saying.

So they justify a invasion....

Step one , email to 10 downing street

Mr Cameron,

Im sure you have read recently of the exposed secret memos mentioned in the Independent newspaper highlighting that the UK government were in talks with Brittish Oil firms on how to divide the oil wealth of Iraq before the US/UK lead invasion. This highlights to many millions of people in the UK that we were right all along and we marched against the war for nothing. We marched against the deaths of millions and our government didnt listen. You can listen and you can take action, I implore you to start an international war crimes investigation to implicate ex president Bush , and ex prime minister Blair , and their party members involved during office for crimes against humanity and the death of innocent men , women and children over lies perpetrated to accrue resource wealth for the future of this country and the US.
I assure you mr Cameron that if you dont take action , the people of Britain who are awake to this horrific injustice will, your party will face chaos.

Step two , email to the UN to ask for further investigation into the Iraq war crimes using this as evidence.

Was there really any doubt?

Just because you can't pull a definite quote from the President of BP saying, "Yes, we lined the pockets of politicians to invade Iraq for oil." doesn't mean it isn't true. Urban legend? Never heard it described as that.

Do you think it's a coincident that we discovered deposits of iron, copper, cobalt, gold, and lithium worth $1 TRILLION in Afghanistan last June?

I don't.

Its funny because some people will be shocked by this.

Ive been saying this since day one. People are always wondering "why are we in Iraq?" " Why are we in the middle east to begin with?!"

Its always been a simple answer to me. You go where the oil is, if we want to remain a superpower for years to come, we need to secure resources for ourselves.

In my mind, it probably went something like this:

A:"Sir, our dollar is failing, and soon we will be facing diminishing resources, and a weakened dollar will make it difficult to keep our economy from collapsing. We need to make a move into the Middle East before the rest of the world realizes its vast resources, if we position ourselves in the middle east now, we will be able to manipulate fuel costs.

B: But how can we possibly get the american people on board with a full scale war over resources? We need a reason to go to war that everyone can get behind.

A: Quite simple sir, we will tell them we're looking for terrorists.

USA > Iraq. "To the victor, go the spoils."

Do not talk to me about bush war crimes. if there were war crimes, everyone had their hands in it. Easy to just blame the man at the top

oh yeah, and I'm pretty sure that Britain has "ministers" and BP or BRITISH Petroleum, being a large oil company , are the ones behind this, since they've always paid high gas prices. remember hearing about "Coalition forces in Iraq" coalition of British, American, etc forces? yeah

I listened to a Coast to Coast AM show dated Feb 25. On the show was a Minister Lindsey Williams. I never heard of him before and he could be full of crap but his story was interesting.

Basically he said that during the building of the Alaska pipeline he was providing services to the men working there. Because he saved the corporations much money on counseling he was asked to help with the big wigs also and became friendly with many of them. This in turn led to him becoming privy to inside information.

Basically he claims the oil giants mostly run the world. They would tell him something political was going to happen at a specific time and without fail it would happen. He gives some clear warnings for the next two years.

As I said, he could be full of it, but if you could download the Feb 25th show it was an interesting listen.

really, its not that hard to conceive that the Afghan/Iraq war was predominantly to secure oil and resources, if you find this interesting in the slightest, feel free to come out from under the rock...

Well, dang; golly; gee; who would have thought!

When America went to war in Vietnam it was (so they said) to stop the "dominoes effect" of communist insurgency. The specific dominoes were on the left of the map: i.e. Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Burma. No one ever mentioned once that domino just to the right of Vietnam: Indonesia! What's their main export? Guess-- (with a dang, golly and gee) OIL! There is also historical fact that during the Vietnam war the now defunct Standard Oil was actually selling fuel to Ho Chi Minh's North Vietnam! Check it out. So what's new?

Too bad the order and intel came from the US not from BP or the UK. You can sit there and make excuses for the war-mongers all day but you're making excuses while your country just found another war.

So...what is the Libya war about? Is it about spreading more democracy? WMD's? What the US is doing in Libya now is aiding and abetting your future enemies. In 5 years when Gaddhafi is gone, you will have another Al Qaeda with millions of your taxpayer money. Than when they bomb America again you can say it was Iran and go into Iran and repeat the whole excuse process over again.

S&F Jake but this is what people said in the beginning. Not unlike the tobacco company smoking gun memos. Too bad it will likely take years before they are found out and justice is finally served to the guilty here. That is if at all.

Dying for nothing? How about no more attacks or planes flying into buildings since then? How about the end of murder theft and rape on a mass scale? How about the mass killings of his own people by chemical weapons, which has been proven? How about the freedom of speech and the right to vote? Please think before speaking.

Oh, and I wonder why Obama went into Libya and not any other middle east country that is currently rioting? Maybe because of the oil? It is because of the oil.

Lol. The Iraq war was absolutely useless. Its already been shown that "Al Qaeda" is make believe.

Whether you like it or not, American and British soldiers have died to make a select few richer.

Also, why should we care what another leader does to their people? That is no basis for starting a war and you are grasping at straws.

Couldn't have said it better myself.... A bunch of fat pig glob obese TOP HAT BANKERS SENDING THE YOUNG TO DIE FOR THEIR GREED. CAUSING MILLIONS OF DEATHS.



I wonder if the LAME-STREAM media will report this story and ponder their little drone follower minds about this story; or just report that the story is false. Because now that their agenda has been exposed

They come to the realisation that they were spreading propaganda. They are the Propaganda.

I feel sorry for anyone who knows you personally. To not have compasion or heart for another human being is unconscionable. Im sure you have compassion for your X-box. On a more factual side, Al Qaeda does exist, please research any history book in the last 35 years or religious text around the world. Please cross reference with any news organization liberal or conservative. Please show me factual evidence of ones bank account or profit and loss statement where anyone made a income or profits based on that war. Please break it down to quarterly statements with 1040 or buisness tax returns showing their gains. Receipts? Evidence? Nope! Didnt think so. Please do not rant and rave about your own jealous and self pitying feelings and pawn them off like its fact. Pick up a book an read.

War is peace. Ignorance is strength. This news is just in time for the Royal Wedding. Shut up and get ready to line the streets to cheer your Royals! Wave your Union Jacks on high, hip, hip, huzah, you little peons. Slaves and drones round the world line up at recruiting stations to fight the war created at the behest of multinational corporations. Send your children off to slaughter your brothers and sisters to aid the criminal cabal that is government. As time passes, you see all of your contemplated conspiracies affirmed. They really are evil bastards. Why am I helping them? That is the question we should all be asking ourselves. Why are we cooperating? Are we all fools? Enough is enough.

Kudos to the OP,

Kudos too for Reuters on their monday story. Are there any decent politicians left out there who could form a real, earnest government in everybody's interests? these people make me sick. I don't think for a minute that the new governments in UK and US have no inkling of what has gone on either. And where is the money going to? I know the UN is getting a big wedge for telling porkies on Global warming...sorry Climate change, and without actually doing much really, it's all a big deceit, and things will have to change.

Have anyone ever thought that China is the mastermind in all these conspiracies. After all they seem to be the ones benefiting from everything that goes on, like they say follow the money trail.

Perhaps, the urban legend that has surrounded the Iraq War since day one has some truth to it.

Since when is something so obvious as that, an urban legend or even news. All of those past freedom operations and wars and battles, and the present ones are as obvious as they can get, about what it's all about, and oil is a primary reason, but not the only reason, but basically it all comes down to power and money for the few.

All that you see on the corporate news, is exactly that a corporate show, produced to make the sheeple go along with there intrests, and the rest as they say is history. Many in the know, or should I say the rich few, got richer of the many idiots.
It's the big players using the peons for as fodder for there interests, and so far what does the little person have to show for it, dept and increasing dept, and more dept to come..... The path to hell is paved with good intentions.
