Dutch Government Inquiry finds Iraq War to be Illegal
In a damning series of findings on the decision of the Dutch government to support Tony Blair and George Bush in the strategy of regime change in Iraq, the inquiry found the action had “no basis in international law”.
The 551-page report, published today and chaired by former Dutch supreme court judge Willibrord Davids, said UN resolutions in the 1990s prior to the outbreak of war gave no authority to the invasion. “The Dutch government lent its political support to a war whose purpose was not consistent with Dutch government policy. The military action had no sound mandate in international law,” .
Why are we even wasting our time and taxpayers money with this whitewash showcase inquiry? Just like the Dr Kelly inquiry before it will be a PROVEN whitewash.We already know the real DAMNING EVIDENCE will NOT be allowed to be shown to the inquiry. Why are we not jailing those that ran these previous inquiries and THIS ONE for conspiracy and deceiving the public and wasting taxpayers money?
BLAIR IS GUILTY OF WAR CRIMES AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY THERE IS NO DOUBT ABOUT THIS!!!
All we need to know now is why? Is it criminal negligence, did he FAIL to take on board all the relevant evidence? OR was it a premeditated act of state terrorism and a blatant war crime and crime against humanity?OR was he blackmailed by a US NeoCon cabal?
Personally I think blackmail. Here are the posts that explain why.
Well for me and I believe most of the UK , Iraq did NOT pose a threat to the UK , the 45 minutes claim WAS A KNOWN LIE!!! Repeating this claim to parliment was an ACT OF TREASON .The Downingstreet memo AND Dr Kelly’s MURDER are proof of this! Why did Blair think there where WMD’s in Iraq? Hans Blix did NOT think so , neither did UK weapons inspector Dr David Kelly (who was later murdered) neither did US Weapons inspector Scott Ritter.
“we were convinced that all the fissile material that could be used for any weapons purposes had been taken out of Iraq, and we knew that we had eliminated and destroyed the whole infrastructure that Iraq had built up for the enrichment of uranium.” – Hans Blix, in a BBC Interview, Jan 2003
British weapons inspector Dr. David Kelly was writing an expose about his work with anthrax and his warnings that Iraq possessed no weapons of mass destruction at the time of his death in July 2003, according to a report published in a British newspaper.
Kelly’s death — said to have been a suicide — has stirred controversy, as it came on the heels of testimony to the House of Commons about a memo which purported that Britain had “sexed up” a dossier on Iraq’s alleged weapons of mass destruction. A Parliamentary inquiry ruled that the death had been suicide, though it also included testimony from a former British ambassador who quotes Kelly as having said, “I will probably be found dead in the woods” if Iraq were invaded.
William Scott Ritter, Jr. (born July 15, 1961, Gainesville, Florida) is noted for his role as a chief United Nations weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998, and later for his criticism of United States foreign policy in the Middle East. Prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003, Ritter publicly argued that Iraq possessed no significant weapons of mass destruction (WMDs).
The memo recorded the head of the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) as expressing the view following his recent visit to Washington that “[George W.] Bush wanted to remove Saddam Hussein, through military action, justified by the conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts were being fixed around the policy.” It also quoted Foreign Secretary Jack Straw as saying that it was clear that Bush had “made up his mind” to take military action but that “the case was thin”, and the Attorney-General Lord Goldsmith as warning that justifying the invasion on legal grounds would be difficult.
Mr Cook, who saw Mr Blair before the cabinet, said: “It is with regret I have today resigned from the cabinet.”
“I can’t accept collective responsibility for the decision to commit Britain now to military action in Iraq without international agreement or domestic support.”
BLAIR WANTED REGIME CHANGE , THATS A WAR CRIME!!!
“If you had known then that there were no WMDs, would you still have gone on?” Blair was asked. He replied: “I would still have thought it right to remove him [Saddam Hussein]“.
Significantly, Blair added: “I mean obviously you would have had to use and deploy different arguments about the nature of the threat.”
A war of aggression for regime change IS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY AND A WAR CRIME!!
A war of aggression is a military conflict waged absent the justification of self-defense. Waging such a war of aggression is a crime under the customary international law. Wars without international legality (e.g. not out of self-defense, not sanctioned by the United Nations Security Council, and not sanctioned by Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations) can be considered wars of aggression.
The United Nations secretary general, Kofi Annan, declared explicitly for the first time last night that the US-led war on Iraq was illegal. Mr Annan said that the invasion was not sanctioned by the UN security council or in accordance with the UN’s founding charter.
IF BLAIR CLAIMS HE BELIEVED IRAQ HAD WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION HE IS EITHER A LIAR OR CRIMINALLY NEGLEGENT IN HIS DUTIES!!
ALSO IRAQ HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH 911 OR SPONSORING TERRORISM
Ex-Italian President: Intel Agencies Know 9/11 An Inside Job
Man who set up Operation Gladio tells Italy’s largest newspaper attacks were run by CIA, Mossad
Former Italian President and the man who revealed the existence of Operation Gladio Francesco Cossiga has gone public on 9/11, telling Italy’s most respected newspaper that the attacks were run by the CIA and Mossad and that this was common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies.
Cossiga was elected President of the Italian Senate in July 1983 before winning a landslide 1985 election to become President of the country in 1985.
Cossiga gained respect from opposition parties as one of a rare breed – an honest politician – and led the country for seven years until April 1992.
Cossiga’s tendency to be outspoken upset the Italian political establishment and he was forced to resign after revealing the existence of, and his part in setting up, Operation Gladio – a rogue intelligence network under NATO auspices that carried out bombings across Europe in the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s
“ Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally “the database”, was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians.”
“Former Cabinet minister Robin Cook, 59, has died after collapsing while hill walking in north-west Scotland.”
MURDERED IN THE SAME WHY AS Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Michael Todd
“On 19 December Liberty held a meeting with Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Michael Todd. Chief Constable Todd has confirmed that he will look into “extraordinary rendition” flights on behalf of the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO). According to Chief Constable Todd, the police have begun initial inquiries and will follow Liberty’s recommendations for further questioning.” UN Convention in Torture UNCAT Vol 2 160/6 Page 166. House of Lords report 26thMay 2006
At 5.00pm on Tuesday, March 11, 2008 BBC4 “PM” programme broke the news that Greater Manchester Police Chief Constable Michael Todd had been found dead on Snowdon.
THE BBC WILL CONTINUE TO SPEW PRO-GOVERNMENT WAR PROPAGANDA
It has done this for a long time.
During Operation AJAX , the overthrow of a democratically elected secular government in Iran ,the BBC spearheaded Britain’s propaganda campaign, broadcasting the go-code launching the coup d’état against Iran’s elected government.This was done to impose the Shah of Irans brutal regime,ultimately it brought on the rise if Islamic Iran.
