“I will be with you, whatever”.
Posted on July 8th, 2016

“I will be with you, whatever”. This is not a line from one of Frank Sinatra’s love songs. This is Blair’s pledge to his master George W Bush.

The Chilcot Report is finally out and I do not want to vomit the facts stated in that 2.6-million-word commentary. The inquiry (into Britain’s role leading to the invasion of Iraq) commenced in 2009 and ended in 2011. The release of the report was blocked by the British Government who maintained that it would be “inappropriate” to publish the report in the months leading up to the election in 2015. In October 2015 Chilcot wrote a letter to David Cameron (who would have taken this in to account when he resigned) indicating that the text of his report will be published in June/July of 2016. The war lasted for 2 years but the report took 7 years to see the light of day.

Anyone can access Chilcot’s report but the primary facts clearly reflect Blair’s deception and arrogance and the ruthlessness of the British. The facts clearly show that from the day the British decided to invade Iraq in 2003 right up to this very day the entire episode was a major fuxk-up”. A prime minister haughtily lied to his cabinet, flouted the resolutions of the UN, deceived the public and the world at large, sucked up to the USA to maintain a special relationship”, assumed responsibility for the death of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi men, women and children, caused the displacement of over 1 million Iraqis, further aggravated the instability of the region and caused the birth of the Islamic State of Iraq (ISIS). To wash away the blood on his hands and seek quick salvation Blair converted to Catholicism soon after he stepped down from his high office. Now what will Ban Ki- Moon do? What will the Human Right’s man, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, do? Should countries like Sri Lanka take Britain and the US seriously? An old song comes to mind – Red, white and blue, reddhe hitung gu” – look, look at the red, white and blue flag it has excreta on the cloth.

The questions to ask are whether this type of report be ever written in Colonial times? Would any person in Britain be held responsible for the atrocities committed by the British in Sri Lanka? Should Sri Lanka seek compensation from Britain for the atrocities committed? Will there be an inquiry in the US similar to the Chilcot Inquiry to examine America’s role in the invasion of Iraq in 2003?

The year 2016 is clearly a bad year for Britain – an astrologer will say that Rahu kalaya has started. Britain voted to get out of the European Community (and was told that cherry picking” is not allowed), lost to Iceland in soccer (but won against Sri Lanka in cricket), Cameron (who now goes about in an Indian car) resigned, the sterling pound is falling, Boris Johnson resigned from Brexit,  the FTIndex is pushed down by ugly bears, the leader of the Opposition, Jeremy Corbyn will not go and cannot be removed, the country has no leadership nor a prime minister, Scotland intends to have another go at detaching itself from Great Britain” (and probably will succeed this time) and the two Irelands may unite. Zimbabwe sounds a relatively better country to live in.

Have we ever asked the question why (apart from money) the headquarters of the UN, the ICC, Human Rights Commission, FAO, IBRD, IMF, IAEA, ITU and other agencies are placed in the US or in Europe? It is high time that Sri Lanka told Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and his lackeys to leave us alone and go play their game elsewhere. Surely they can’t be serious. Britain and the US are morally and financially bankrupt and we must now seriously look to our regional neighbour and long-time friend China.

    The US and the UK and actually the EU etc. all wanted regime change in Iraq so that the secular Arab nationalist and a socialist government of Saddam Hussein who has used oil revenues to benefit its people rather than Western oil companies could be deposed and a puppet government installed in order to obtain a large number of contracts on considerable favourable terms in order to dominate the oil industry of Iraq. For that they installed a puppet government. They also created an unstable situation in terms of different factions within Iraq being in conflict with each other which is never ending. These factions now include Islamic terrorists who were not around when Saddam Hussein was in power. Now it is even more easier to obtain the Iraqi oil at very concessional terms for the Western oil companies what with all the fighting going on and the instability. A similar regime change took place in Libya where the leader Ghaddafi who has used oil revenues to develop the country rather than privatizing oil extraction, was deposed and a puppet government installed. Similar changes took place in Tunisia, Egypt etc. where things are no better and probably are worse than before. Therefore it is obvious that the objectives of the US, UK, EU were actually very successful in Iraq. The only outcome however for the Iraqi people is disaster, war, conflict and mayhem. It is a good lesson for Sri Lanka where people wanted a ‘change’ and now Sri Lankans are realizing what change means which is partition of the country with federal states being created, unstable situation in terms of federal states, puppet government, extremely bad economy, instead of reconciliation, appeasing separatists who are favourable to US, UK, EU interests etc.

    Well said Rudra. All right minded people should call upon the UN to take up Blair’s war crimes charge, in the same way Sri Lanka is called upon to face similar charges based on bogus evidence.

    plumblossom, you are correct all what you say are waiting to happen in Sri Lanka.

    More than 50% of so called Sinhala Buddhists are Avajathakayo! They have no love or pride for their Motherland, their Faith, their Culture!

    There is only hope left – Blessings of the Holy Triple Gems and Gods who protect Sri Lanka and Buddha Sasana!

    Well explained.!!! We shouldn’t bother about war criminals of UK or USA, forcing our country and forces to admit war crimes for an internal affair, as they now caught red handed for their atrocities again Iraq and its people.!!!
    The head of UNHCR Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein and UN Secretary General Secretary, always emphasizing on ‘war crimes’, must take action on these crimes and illegitimate invasion of Iraq, by UK and USA and if they don’t, then they have no power to express or suggest war crimes in our country.!!!
    Until then, there shouldn’t be no war crime inquiries or accusations against Sri Lanka and our forces, even though some racist Sinhalese are willing to sell their souls for LTTE dollars.!!!

    War Criminal Tony Blair, when asked by Sir John Chilcot, replied he will do it again. Blair never expected the report to be this truthful, that it will implicate him this badly. As one family member of a fallen soldier said “there is only one terrorist the in this world and his name is Tony Blair “. Blair was a guest at the invitation of Mangala Samaraweera at the time of August elections. Our Yahapalanaya who have found well connected War Criminals as their friends and advisors want to take the world’s oonly leader and the armed forces in the world that anahilated terrorism to ICC.

    I read somewhere that Gotabhaya and Bogellagama have already written to Human Rights Watch on the findings of the report and requested HRW to take action against those responsible.
