Former UK Prime Minister Tony Blair faced an inquiry today into the Iraq war, and, to his credit, he stuck by his guns and said he'd do it all over again to remove Saddam Hussein from power. The Iraq war was unpopular in Brittain, and as he left the inquiry today, he was booed by the audience. I give the man sincere props for sticking to his guns and saying that the world is a better, safer place without Saddam Hussein.
"This isn't about a lie or a conspiracy or a deceit or a deception," he told the panel.
"It's a decision. And the decision I had to take was, given Saddam's history, given his use of chemical weapons, given the over one million people whose deaths he had caused, given 10 years of breaking UN resolutions, could we take the risk of this man reconstituting his weapons programmes or is that a risk that it would be irresponsible to take?"
Somehow, though, it seems that the world disagrees, and would rather have a genocidal megalomaniac in charge of Iraq than to let the country try its hand at freedom. Enough so that they're saying Tony Blair could be charged with fucking war crimes for standing by its ally - the United States - to wipe a derranged, power-mad, murdering dictator off the map.
Fuck that. Fuck it with a rusty chainsaw attached to a steel dildo. Fuck it ten ways from tomorrow sideways with a baseball bat. These are the same fuckers wearing Che t-shirts like he's some sort of motherfucking saint; the same people who think that we should cut plea deals with fucking terrorists and let terrorists go free for the sake of our "image."
Fuck our image and fuck your t-shirt, you fucking buckets of fail. If it's the right-wing that's so evil, why is it that we're the ones who are deposing oppressive dictators and fighting desperately for the freedom of people to whom we owe nothing?
Just fucking curious.
