Tony Blair about to appear at Chilcot Inquiry

In less than ten hours one of the most anticipated events for a very long time will occur.  Anthony Lynton Blair, the UK’s glorious ex leader for over a decade, is going to appear in front of the Chilcot Inquiry to discuss the controversial Iraq war. Tony Blair has always justified going to war as being the right thing to do in spite of claims by many that the invasion broke international laws. The main justification that he used for the invasion was the threat of WMD’s a claim that was based on faulty intelligence but still used to scare a section of the British public into support.

The famous Downing street dossier was an example of how vague statements of past menace were turned into definite intentions of threat and the famous 45 minute claim was the killer line that has been and will probably always be remembered as the lie that led to war. However Blair has always been a consummate liar and it will be interesting to see whether the Chilcot inquiry presses him hard enough over his decision to stick side by side with America after the events of 9/11 come what may.

Its a decision that Tony has to live with for the rest of his life and I doubt he will ever make another that has led to so many consequences. Yes Saddam, a brutal dictator and ex ally who we armed in the 80’s has gone, which is a good thing, but along the way thousands apon thousands of Iraqi men, women and children have died as well as hundreds of troops.

The county has definitely changed and not purely for the better. There is a demcratic state instead of a one party Bathist dictaroship but whereas once there was a society that was outwardly secular and cohesive under Saddam it is now a bitter sectarian chaos where Sunni fights Shi’ite and road side bombs still go off every day in markets killing shoppers in their hundreds. Not forgetting the death squads and religious militias that enforce strict Sharia laws on women who dare to show their knees or faces in public. This may or may not be a price worth paying for “freedom” but you would have to ask an Iraqi about that.

Added to the personal costs of destroyed lives, cities and institutions is the cost to the image of our country as well as that of the USA in terms of world politics. Its very hard to take the high ground and lecture other countries such as China and Russia on morals and the rule of law when we disregard international laws so quickly when they don’t go our way. The UN has been shown to be worse than useless when it comes to preventing a world leader such as America when they have their blood up and spoiling for a fight. Its very well for us to use UN resolutions to legitimise our aggression but we have to obey them when they don’t otherwise the hypocrisy will come back and bite us very hard.

Tony Blair believed that the first UN resolution was enough to make any attack on Iraq legal and even though many in the Foreign Office disagreed with this belief it didn’t matter as long as he had a green light from the Attorney General, Lord Goldsmith, which he finally got after some behind the scenes arm twisting. On the surface during 2002 it seemed in public and in the house of commons that war was not inevitable and Blair often remarked that it could be prevented if the weapons inspectors were allowed to do their job. However it now seems that this was all lies and the decision to go to war had already been made by him and George Bush back in 2002. He also recently admitted on an interview with Fern Britton that even if Iraq was found not to have weapons of mass destruction he would have still pressed ahead to remove him presumably using another false pretext to convince the public and his government.

Hopefully Chilcot will press Blair hard on these falsehoods today when he is questioned as the whole inquiry has been leading up to this climax with witness after witness when asked about the change in policy, change in legal direction or discrepancy between public statements and private assurances have all said “Well you need to ask Tony about that”. Therefore today is the day that Tony has to answer his critics and explain his deception. He is a consummate actor and a skillful politician and liar therefore I am in no doubt he will not be fazed by any of the inquiry panel members questions.

Today’s questioning of Blair is an event that has certainly drawn the crowds in and everyone is hoping it will be a chance to witness Blair squirm as his deceptions and misdeeds are laid bare for all the public eyes to see. However much we maybe wishing for some sort of justice to be delivered on the war criminal its only a inquiry with no authority to pass sentences and therefore there is a great possibility that today’s questioning will be a damp squib with Blair worming his way out from any hard questions.

He will dazzle us all with his usual political double-speak and phony concern for any “honest mistakes” that were carried out due to the faulty intelligence that all major countries apparently believed in. We will just have to cross our fingers and hope that the Catholic God that Tony now believes in decides to issue some divine judgement of his own as it looks like that may be the only way Mr Blair will ever face some kind of justice for the war in Iraq.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
