The former head of Mi5 stated that Saddam Hussein posed no threat to the UK, but since Britain joined America’s war for regime change in Baghdad, the knock on effect of the “terror threat” to our shores has increased significantly.
Eliza Manningham-Buller told the Chilcot inquiry that the Iraq invasion had led to “radicalising” Muslims.
Manningham-Buller undermined the case for the illegal war presented by the former prime minister Tony Blair, she was asked whether it was feared Saddam could have linked terrorists to weapons of mass destruction, facilitating their use against the west.
“It certainly wasn’t of concern in either the short term or the medium term to me or my colleagues,”
Asked by Sir John Chilcot if she had any general reflections, she replied:
“The main one would be the danger of going to war on fragmentary intelligence.”
Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction.
There was no threat to Britian.
Saddam Hussein had no links to Al-CIAda or any other terrorist group.
This was a war for regime change and to have hegemony over a large, proven energy resource.
It was illegal from day one and has cost the lives of over a million Iraqi civilians, seven million people have left the country, while a further seven million are internally displaced refugees.
The cradle of civilisation is rocked by a intercine theocratic civil war, in which the American occupiers play one side off against the other.
Birth defects are running off the charts thanks to uranium tipped ordnance used by the occupying forces.
The infrastructure of the country is ruined, there is intermittent water and electricity supplies, yet the biggest construction project in the world – America’s green zone has the best amenities available in the world.
Ask them if the price was worth it and they’ll say yes everytime.
This isn’t just a war on Iraqis or Afghanis or even Arabs or Muslims. It is ultimately a war on us all.
