It was in March, 2003 that President George Bush and his English buddy, Prime Minister Tony Blair told the world it was imperative to invade Iraq, overthrow Saddam Hussein and end threats by Weapons of Mass Destruction. The ensuing invasion cost the lives of over a million people, caused millions to flee, including half the Christian population of the country. About 4,000 American soldiers died in this conflict and over 35,000 were wounded. Current estimates are that 500,000 had suffered one form or another of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
South African leader, Archbishop Desmond Tutu wants the International Criminal Court to place on trial Bush and Blair for war crimes. “Those responsible for this suffering and loss of life should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in the Hague.”
Tony Blair cites the evil of Saddam Hussein who killed thousands of his own people as justification for overthrowing him. Sorry Tony, but during the 1980s, the same cruel Saddam was an ally of the US and received aid in his war against Iran. If he was so terrible why didn’t the US and England overthrow him during the 1980s??
