Tony Blair, quit as ‘peace envoy’, Britons say


This video from Britain is called TONY BLAIR should be charged with WAR CRIMES over Iraq invasion Says Tony Benn.

Having warmonger Tony Blair as ‘peace envoy’ is like a professional butcher presiding over a vegetarian society, or the pope as chairman of an atheist organisation.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Diplomats call on Tony Blair to quit as Middle East peace envoy over Iraq legacy

Tony Blair is facing calls to step down from his role as Middle East envoy after a scathing letter signed by former British ambassadors and politicians that accuses him of trying to “absolve himself” of responsibility for the crisis in Iraq.

The letter, with signatories including his former ambassador to Iran Sir Richard Dalton and former London Mayor Ken Livingstone – comes weeks after he published an essay in which he claimed that the 2003 invasion was not to blame for the current crisis.

But the letter rejects this, saying: “We believe that Mr Blair, as a vociferous advocate of the invasion, must accept a degree of responsibility for its consequences.”

The letter, addressed to foreign ministers in the US, Russia and the EU as well as UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, adds that the former prime minister’s achievement[s] as Middle East envoy are “negligible”.
