IN PICTURES: teleSUR takes a look at Britain’s role in a war that shattered a nation and continues to spread instability and pain across the Middle East.

The British Empire may have fallen into terminal decline long ago, but this didn’t stop former Prime Minister Tony Blair from thrusting the United Kingdom into an unnecessary and illegal war, with U.S. President George W. Bush at the helm, to militarily topple then Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. Continue reading “Photo Gallery: Chilcot and the UK in Iraq: Imperialist War. (Telesur)”

Manning shames her Tormentors, vows to Live as a Woman

01-flyer-final…”sometimes you have to pay a heavy price to live in a free society…”

Chelsea (ex-Bradley) Manning’s post-sentence statement, issued by his lawyer, was the kind of statement you would expect to be given by a Nobel Peace Prize recipient in their acceptance speech. It is both unequivocal and profound. …

That Manning issues such a statement on the day he is sentenced to 35 years in prison is testimony to his resilience, his courage and his love. In doing so, the politicians of this world must surely cower in shame. If President Obama has any integrity left, he must pardon immediately this noble individual. Below, we reproduce it with one difference: we have added hyperlinks, where relevant, to provide greater perspective…. Continue reading “Manning shames her Tormentors, vows to Live as a Woman”

Bradley exposed War Criminals who now Jail him Forever

iraq_dead”What Bradley Manning did may not be to everyone’s taste but there is a larger issue here and that is the accountability of the people we elect and the decisions they make on our behalf. In not standing up to them en masse we are as guilty as the soldiers and officers that are “just following orders” and with this we leave a young man, still 25 despite 1162 days of confinement, facing a further 136 years in prison for not following those orders, for standing his ground and governments, responsible for war crimes, being allowed to walk away without a care in the world whilst they plot their invasion and liberation of their next country.”

…”The white house could claim that unleashing democracy and freedom has been the real target behind the invasion of Iraq while journalist reports and wikileaks documents have shown and revealed the American collaboration  with Saddam`s intelligence and security officers to kill and torture thousands of unarmed civilian Iraqis.

Some wounds heal fast …some won’t heal at all.”… Continue reading “Bradley exposed War Criminals who now Jail him Forever”

Into the abyss of full scale war on Syria with Tony Blair as outrider

The West’s escalation of the war will not bring peace, but death, chaos and destruction on a scale that will dwarf previous ‘interventions’ in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya.



Whenever the Quartet’s ‘Peace Envoy’ Tony Blair makes any pronouncement on the great issues in the Middle East, you can always guarantee that the missile silos are being readied for action. Continue reading “STOP NOW: All sides Pour arms on Syrian War”
