Tony Blair: ‘Iraq civil war will vindicate our actions’

by philapilus

We might as well just go over there again; third time lucky and all that

Tony Blair said today that the escalating disaster in Iraq has definitively vindicated “that whole thing a couple of years back where we rode in and saved the day, and then everything was fine.”

After Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani called upon Shia Muslims to fight back against the Sunni insurgency, the former Prime Minister said that a civil war would be “the truest demonstration of democracy possible.”

Blair said “Look, it’s like this; I know what you’re all thinking – ‘maybe that invasion wasn’t the absolutely greatest idea in human history after all’.

“But I want you to rest easy, and have a clear

Sir John Chilcott and Sir Jeremy Haywood agreed that of the 130 recorded conversations between the former Prime Minister and US  President, the two ‘yellow stickies’ gave the public all the information it demanded, whilst still ensuring important sensitive information was protected.

Sir John Chilcott said “Well, I’m the first person who wants the public to get the whole truth; I

Blair “blank” over Iraq War

by articulatedsheep

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair has said that he has “no recollection” of the defining event of his premiership, that left approaching 200 British servicemen and women and more than 100,000 Iraqis dead.

Blair won 1st Prize at the European Mime-Eating-A-Watermelon awards in 2004, 2005 and 2007

“Iraq… war?” he said, rolling the unfamiliar phrase around in his mouth for a moment, while pulling a puzzled expression. “Nope, no idea. Is it some kind of fruit?”
