In light of the Chilcot report (Tony Blair’s Part In Iraqi War) released Wednesday, teleSUR recalls the warmongering record of the former British Prime Minister

1. How do I feel about having invaded Iraq? Let’s do it again, and maybe Iran too.

Responding to a UN panel investigating the war in Iraq in 2011, Tony Blair shamelessly replied by recommending to go even further and invade Iran. “Iran is a looming and coming challenge,” said the former prime minister, describing the “negative, destabilizing influence of Iran everywhere,” for being “supportive of terrorist groups.”

“The West has to stop this posture of apology that we are causing what Iran, or these extremists are doing,” he added.

In May, he repeated that although he “underestimated” the situation in Iraq, the true “lesson” was that the British military should engage even further in another ground war in Iraq.

“We are not being honest with our public if we are saying it is possible to defeat these people without making the commitment to defeat them and to do what it takes to defeat them,” Blair said at an event sponsored by Prospect magazine in Westminster.

2. A record of war and wanting more

The scandalous invasion of Iraq overshadowed Blair’s leading role in other wars: in Afghanistan, in Kosovo and in Sierra Leon.

Not toppling Robert Mugabe, the president of Zimbabwe, is the only regret voiced by the former prime minister in his 2010 memoirs. Military intervention in rogue regimes are “more necessary than ever,” he affirmed then.

3. Appointed as Middle East Peace Envoy and forced to resign for doing a bad job

Despite this impressive record as a warmonger, and his simplistic narrative about the Middle East, Blair was appointed the Middle East peace envoy for the U.S., Russia, European Union and United Nations.

Eight years and millions of dollars later, he was forced to resign, allegedly under pressure from Washington and the E.U., who were growing frustrated about his poor results.

Blair failed to bring Israel and Palestine back to the negotiating table in 2013, as Palestinian leaders criticized him for supporting Israel interests at the expense of their own.

4. Blair’s romance with Bush and Israel (Blair & Bush in above pic)

His close links with Israel and his political romance with ex-U.S. President George W. Bush were no secret. As an MP and later as prime minister, Blair was very close to a pro-Israel lobby group, the Labour Friends of Israel. In his speech to the LFI Annual Reception in Sept. 2006, Blair said: “I have never actually found it hard to be friend of Israel, I am proud to be a friend of Israel.”

This bias was later demonstrated in the 2006 Lebanon War, when he refused to call for an immediate ceasefire and waited for a U.N. resolution, following Israel and the Bush administration’s lead.

5. No one gained anything from Blair’s military interventions… but Blair?

According to Stop the War Coalition, Blair has amassed a fortune worth tens of millions of pounds, with funders including the governments of Kuwait and the United Arab Emirates. He also earns a US$50,000 monthly salary from an oil company owned by the Saudi royal family and has collaborated with U.S. investment bank JP Morgan and Swiss insurer Zurich International.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
