End It Finally! – A Sad Blast From The Past

A Momma's View

It has started again. One of the cruelest things done by human kind. One of the things that make me so sad and frustrated. I feel numb as there is not much I can do. I’m too much of a coward to head over there and throw me between those monsters and their helpless victims. Too much of a coward to be as brave (maybe extreme) as the Sea Shepherds. So I feel I do nothing. I feel I have blood on my hands too because I know it’s happening again. Nothing I can do but share the sad fact that this sick and cruel tradition is still going on. When will it ever stop??? When will it be forbidden? When will we realize that traditions like that have no room in this world anymore?

Heads Up GOP: Chilcot Report Delivers Damning Verdict on British Role in Iraq War

On This Day
March 20, 2003

The UK investigates a possible international war crime while our GOP Congress conducts politically motivated investigations into Hillary Clinton’s use of her email.

And if Hillary becomes President expect more smear campaign from the GOP  because subverting the rule of law and the will of the people is all part of the ‘game’ for them.

Remember that if the GOP gave a damn about ethics it would have looked into  The U.S. lead Invasion of Iraq, a decision that still compromises National Security.

Here are a few key findings of the UK’s Iraq War report:

“In November 2001, the JIC assessed that Iraq had played no role in the 9/11 attacks on the US and that practical co‑operation between Iraq and Al Qaida was “unlikely”. There was no “credible evidence of covert transfers of WMD‑related technology and expertise to terrorist groups”. It was possible that Iraq might use WMD in terrorist attacks, but only if the regime was under serious and imminent threat of collapse.”

– Page 10, Pt. 51

“… After the invasion, the UK Government, including the intelligence community, was reluctant to admit, and to recognise publicly, the mounting evidence that there had been failings in the UK’s pre‑conflict collection, validation, analysis and presentation of intelligence on Iraq’s WMD.”

– Page 77, Pt. 574

“In the Inquiry’s view, the diplomatic options had not at that stage [March 2003] been exhausted. Military action was therefore not a last resort.”

– Page 6, Pt. 20

 

“The lack of evidence to support pre‑conflict claims about Iraq’s WMD challenged the credibility of the Government and the intelligence community, and the legitimacy of the war.”

– Page 77, Pt. 577

 

“Mr Blair had been advised that an invasion of Iraq was expected to increase the threat to the UK and UK interests from Al Qaida and its affiliates.”

– Page 47, Pt. 340
