WAR CRIMINAL TONY BLAIR INSISTED TODAY HE IS NOT TRYING TO DELAY THE RELEASE OF THE U.K. GOVERNMENT'S REPORT ON THE IRAQ WAR.
BLAIR (PICTURED ABOVE FOLLOWING HIS IRAQ INQUIRY TESTIMONY) TOLD THESE REPORTERS, "I'M NOT TRYING TO DELAY IT, I'M TRYING TO BURY IT!"
Iraq remains a story even if the world media lost interest.
A service member who publicly refused to deploy to Iraq wrote an e-mail asking if he was manipulated?
He took a stand that proved costly for him. He lives with that stand and feels it was the right thing for him. But he wonders about all the 'support' he briefly had. He notes how quickly it vanished and how the people he thought were outraged by the Iraq War no longer appear to care.
We've gone from expressing outrage, he noted, over the conditions in Iraq to not even caring.
And he's right.
Nouri's killing civilians. Not his usual round-up-Sunnis-disappear-them-into-torture-chambers type crimes. He's bombing residential neighborhoods in Falluja and has been doing this for five months now.
And where's the outrage that the US installed and kept puppet is killing Iraqi civilians?
He may or may not get a third term as prime minister but it's amazing how the press could note that Sunnis felt marginalized or worse by Nouri but the same press (western press) couldn't note he was carrying out War Crimes.
Collective punishment is a legally defined War Crime. When you say a populated area has X (terrorists, insurgents, militants, rebels, etc) in it and you decide to bomb it, that's collective punishment. You're punishing civilians for the 'crime' of where they live.
As prime minister of Iraq, he is obligated to protect the citizens. Instead, he's killing them.
He's killing them and he's getting away with it.
The White House begged the Congress to drop their objections to arming Nouri with new weapons at the end of last year. Senator Robert Menedez became the last hold out. But the White House assured that Nouri would not use the weapons on the Iraqi people.
Well that's all Nouri's done.
And not only is it a War Crime, the Leahy Amendment bars the White House from providing funds or arms to a government targeting its own civilian population.
The rush to normalize Iraq is really something to see.
As with most cover ups and lies, it says much more about society than telling the plain truth ever could.
The world community has no ethical ground to stand on. With the exception of the European Parliament, no ruling body has made a point to call out these killings.
It's amazing to look at the current administration's various War Hawks and their various attempts since 2009 to justify war on this nation or that with claims of gassing civilians or whatever while at the same time they stay silent as Nouri is on month five of bombing Falluja's residential neighborhoods.
