A few weeks ago I was reading about the statements from the British that literally blamed Russia for the Iraq war. I thought about this for a little bit and did some checking around as to why the British would make this statement!
Blair’s ex-foreign policy adviser Sir John Sawers said Russia blocked the “smart sanctions” against Iraq, which the US and British delegations lobbied for in the UN Security Council in 2001. In Sawers’ view, this stance of Russia made the war inevitable.
Now after reading the UN information on this so called “smart sanctions” by America and Britain, I came to a conclusion that you had better get your waders on because the doo doo is really getting deep!
A recent statement by Britain’s former prime minister, Tony Blair, said that he would have gone to war even if he had known that Iraq had no weapons of mass destruction! This makes Mr Sawer’s statement above even more worthless to have even expressed.
So what is this bull about?
So when Russia called America and Britain’s bluff about war. Britain and America did what they had to do to keep face in the confrontation of the “Smart Sanctions” against Iraq. They invaded Iraq and killed a million innocent people…
Hummm… Lets see what was said by Putin back then at the start of the Iraq war:
Only hours after the first American missiles landed on Iraqi territory, Russian President Vladimir Putin made a public declaration, condemning the onset of the US invasion as a “great political error.” (Link)
He got that right…
