I for one never once believed the lies and deceit that spewed forth from the mouths of Bush [Jnr] and Blair.
Many people from across this globe marched against the invasion of Iraq and the overthrow of Saddam Hussein which began on the 19th March 2003. We were treated to a televised event that looked like new years eve, except real people were under that ‘blitzkreig’. All as a result of 911 which is now questioned, with some credibility, as an inside job. You see; Saddam was backing away from the almighty US dollar as currency for the oil trade, there were no WMD’s.
Not unlike the Ayyubid army defeating the Crusaders at the decisive Battle of Hattin in 1187, the utter destruction of all that America and Britain bled and died for in Iraq is evaporating in just one short decade.
We honour those who died with fanfares, postumous medals, and emotive words. But for what? Is it just to stroke the ego’s of Bush/Blair/Howard and political figures? Courageous young men who fought valiantly against, what we are told, is the evil empire. No. It is far more sinister than that.
No one will care now how many hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been slaughtered since 2003 because of the fantasies of Bush and Blair. These two men destroyed Saddam’s regime to make the world safe and declared that Iraq was part of a titanic battle against “Islamofascism”. Well, they lost. Remember that the Americans captured and recaptured Mosul to crush the power of Islamist fighters. They fought for Fallujah twice. And both cities have now been lost again to the Islamists. The armies of Bush and Blair have long gone home, declaring victory!
From Aleppo in northern Syria almost to the Iraqi-Iranian border, the jihadists of Isis and sundry other groupuscules paid by the Saudi Wahhabis – and by Kuwaiti oligarchs – now rule thousands of square miles.
