the military action had no sound mandate in international law".The second load of poo, the Chilcot inquiry in London, brought forth the testimony of Alastair Campbell, Tony Blair's Karl Rove-like spin doctor.
During almost five hours of questioning about the secret diplomacy between Washington and Downing Street in the months before the invasion, Campbell revealed that the former prime minister had assured President Bush in a series of private letters during 2002 that Britain would support a US-led war against Iraq. Campbell said the tenor of Blair's letters was: "We share the analysis, we share the concern, we are going to be with you in making sure that Saddam Hussein is faced up to his obligations and that Iraq is disarmed ... if that cannot be done diplomatically and it is to be done militarily, Britain will be there."It's not just Tony Blair who is implicated in all this, but Gordon Brown as well since
Campbell made it clear Gordon Brown was "one of the key ministers" Blair spoke to about Iraq.Elephant poo may be good for growing roses, but the sort of poo that is the illegal "regime change" of Empires, both reigning and former, is of the stinky, nasty, in your face kind. And now that it has hit the fan of the British Regime, let's hope some of it blows across the Atlantic to once again stir inquiries into why the US invaded Iraq and how this war, so clearly illegal in origins, can possibly continue to cost so much in lives and resources.
