Only one of the over 200K casualties in an unnecessary war that was started based on wrong intelligence.
It accomplished noting and is still causing hundreds of casualties, in some form or another, every year.
If Blair committed massive war crimes, what about George W Bush?
Blair followed the leader and none of them have been held responsible.
There is another unnecessary war going on right now, where one powerful nation make an unprovoked attack on a weaker nation, causing untold sufferings and numerous casualties (on both sided in this case)
At least the leader of the attacker nation has been indicted for war crimes by the ICC.
Not that it is likely to make any difference, since major powers don’t recognize the authority of the ICC.
PS> Arrest order only applies in ICC member countries, so visits to any other major power is no problem for accused war criminals.
they all thank Blair who made up the reason to invade, most likely got a commission.
Although the story has a twist, that crook Cheney was all bitter and twisted over George H success in the CIA and then POTUS so Cheney used his son to get back at him.
Bush Snr also was dead against the war like the British public.
I’m not convinced future historians will record it that way. With a military force of over 2 million troops, the Bush administration was the one with the military and manufacturing might to pull it off and reap huge profits for the industrial military complex in the process. He didn’t appear to need much prodding at the time.
With fewer than 150 thousand troops and a fraction of the industrial power, Blair might have been head cheerleader but could not have pulled off the invasion on his own.
sure thats why he had to convince the USA and along came Cheney with his baggage, GW was just the guy in place at the time.
Remember this scandal, Scooter Libby should still be in prison ( clearly the Bush admin knew there were no WMD
