Tony Blair refuted on Iraq

This April 2014 video from Britain is called Tony Blair Would Support Al-Qaeda In Syria.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain today:

WARMONGER: A young writer took his red proofing pen to Tony Blair’s essay on Iraq and the Middle East yesterday, with the marked piece quickly going viral online.

In the essay Mr Blair demands more bloodshed in Syria and tries to wash his hands of sparking the latest round of killings in Iraq.

Marking it, Alex Nunns had to leave it ungraded as it was “not an essay but a collection of unsubstantiated opinions.”

Mr Nunns advised Mr Blair that the piece displayed “lack of effort and vigour.”

It remains to be seen if Mr Blair will attend detention as ordered.

In the last line of his review of Blair, Alex Nunns tells Blair to go to detention at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

In testimony Wednesday before the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on defence, the chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, said the Iraqi government of Nouri al-Maliki had formally requested that the United States assist its military operations against Sunni rebels with “air power”: here.

Obama to send up to 300 ‘military advisers’ to help Iraqi army: here.

“They are high-ranking officers. They are Navy SEALs and Army Rangers, said retired Marine Sgt. Adam Banotai. Banotai, who scrapped through the brutal battle for Fallujah during the Iraq war, thinks the term ‘adviser’ is misplaced. ‘It is political semantics,’ he said. ‘We are calling them adviser now…instead of combat troops or boots on the ground. They are the most elite fighters we have,’ he added. ‘So, if they aren’t going to be combat troops — I’m not quite sure who the president is going to refer to as combat troops’”: here.

Saudi Arabia has further fuelled sectarian tensions in the Middle East with comments yesterday by Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal blaming the US-backed Shiite-dominated government in Baghdad for the escalating conflict in Iraq: here.

Saudi Arabia rejects Iraqi accusations of Isis support. Government statement accuses Iraq’s Nouri al-Maliki of false allegations in his claims that Saudis are facilitating genocide: here.

The offensive in Iraq of the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has not only revealed the destructive character of the US-led imperialist interventions in the Middle East, but also the corrupt and cynical character of its regional allies—first and foremost, the Turkish ruling class and its political representatives: here.

The US occupation opened up religious fault lines in Iraq that have now exploded, writes Ramzy Baroud: here.

The Obama administration is utilizing the crisis in Iraq as an opportunity to escalate the US war drive throughout the Middle East, with Syria in the crosshairs: here.

  1. From the USA:

    Dear Friend,

    Last night, House Republicans voted against stopping endless war not once, not twice, but three times.

    Earlier this week, I offered three amendments to next year’s defense budget: one that prohibited funding combat operations in Iraq, one to strip funds from operations authorized by the 2002 Iraq AUMF, and one to repeal, once and for all, the 2001 AUMF that put us on our current path toward global, endless war.

    You would think these measures would be common sense. After 13 years of fighting, the American people are war weary. They clearly favor putting an end to our current conflicts, and are set against any new military action — especially in Iraq. But House Republicans rejected every single one of my amendments, even as the President prepares to send “military advisers” into the conflict.

    We must act now and avoid another war in Iraq, the quagmire that has bogged down our foreign policy and our priorities at home for more than a decade. Sign my petition against endless war.

    Standing Strong,

    Member of Congress
