In a High Court ruling in London, it has been decided that Tony Blair will NOT be put on trial over the United Kingdom’s role in the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
As reported previously, the former chief of staff of the Iraqi army General Abdul Wahed Shannan Al Rabbat had launched a private prosecution, with Blair accused of committing a ‘crime of aggression’ for ordering the invasion.
In other words, he felt that Blair had committed an illegal act, mainly because of the fact that amongst other things, his assessment that Iraq had ‘Weapons of Mass Destruction’ turned out to be false.
In turn, these ‘false allegations’ were very much the driving force behind our boys and girls being sent to fight over there.
Many didn’t come home – it is well worth remembering that as well.
According to the Daily Star: The general wanted to prosecute Mr Blair and two other key ministers at the time – foreign secretary Jack Straw and attorney general Lord Goldsmith.
Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd, the Lord Chief Justice, and Mr Justice Ouseley dismissed the general’s application, saying there was “no prospect” of the case succeeding.
Once again, we can’t help but stand back and admire ‘Teflon Tony’ as he has become known.
For obvious reasons we will be careful what we say here, but it goes without saying that many, many, MANY people will still feel that Blair needs to be brought to justice in one way or another for his actions during his so-called ‘leadership’ of this nation.
The legacy of this total lack of action is that Blair is now free to spout rubbish about stopping Brexit in one way or another.
