Yep but I can't see Blair getting his cumuppance yet. He seems to have been too well rewarded for his part in things and has been subject to the softest of enquiries. Most of our recent Prime ministers seem to be there as a figure head on which people focus their anger over policy decisions wars etc. This is what they get rewarded for in my opinion and they a pretty well protected in their retirement.


Apparently war tribunals are only for nazis cause they lost the war. Saddam lost the war and he got hanged as well. According to Bin Laden saddam was a socialist. Another hanged socialist was Nicolae Ceaușescu from romania.

Left is EVIL! Right is GOOD! kindergarden logic!!

Maybe we should form our own government brothers and sisters, our world?

Then we deal with Blair and the Bushes and all the other sell outs!

There was a large rebellion all round against the march to war with an anti-war vote garnering a large support from Labour MP's, was still nowhere near enough to stop the motion going through to invade Iraq.


UK Prime Minister Tony Blair has won key support for a military campaign against Saddam Hussein, despite a major rebellion in his Labour Party. Back away from this confrontation now and future conflicts will be infinitely worse and more devastating in their effects Tony Blair Mr Blair suffered the greatest parliamentary revolt of his premiership when 139 of his party colleagues voted for an amendment saying the case for war was not yet proven. But the government still managed to beat the rebel amendment and see its own motion supporting the use of UK forces in Iraq passed by a large majority - 412 to 149.


news.bbc.co.uk...


Tony Blair tonight saw off the final obstacle to UK involvement on a war with Iraq, defeating a Commons anti-war vote with a majority of 179. A total of 217 Labour, Conservative, Liberal Democrat and nationalist MPs voted against war, on an amendment saying the case was "not yet established", with early estimates putting the Labour rebellion at 140 - up 17 from the vote last month. The government's own motion, allowing for military action, was easily carried by 412 votes to 149. It is thought 83 Labour MPs voted against their government.

Pretty sure this vote will be laughed at by future generations. A parliamentary democracy, voting to illegally invade a sovereign nation which posed no tangible threat to our own nation, pah.

there was a post on yahoo mail about 7 months ago where tony blair stated that he was sorry about the loss of British soldiers lives ,he also said that the information concerning 911 was false coming out of Washington concerning all of 911. what the hell is really going on here ,it seems that the us is trying to start ww3 .remember there is great profit in war ,taking into consideration that the day after bush said the troops were going in Lockheed martins shares rose by 30 %.and a soldiers life is only worth a few thousand $$$$ oh so cheap a price to pay just to guarantee corporate greed rules.

I reckon that by the time this is in the history books, it will be completely re-written anyway. I doubt the true story will be told, much like most of the wars throughout history.

I think it will be pretty hard to have one historical view of this war, like every other, which is the whole point of history.

Some will of course try to present a revisionist view of the invasion etc, but so much information is available to the public, historians that it will be impossible to get away with trying to present the invasion as some kind of achievement/victory/morally right adventure.
