    TIME FOR SOME NEW POSTERS – REDUCTIONISTS UNITED ?

    The reductionism which drives the simple-minded. Surely, if this simplistic analysis applies at all, it also applies to Curveball? He was the lying Iraqi whose false intelligence was used, at least in part, by the USA and allies as their reasoning for invading Iraq.

    Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi (Curveball) admits to WMD lies that triggered Iraq war

    Rafid Ahmed Alwan al-Janabi – codenamed Curveball by the CIA – explains why he lied about Saddam’s chemical weapons capability. His false claims were quoted at the UN by former secretary of state Colin Powell and used to help justify the Iraq war.

    What a warmonger! Even war criminal!

    And he LIED to us. To the whole world. And just because he wanted to be rid of Saddam Hussein. And it gets worse – he doesn’t regret it! And worse, he would do it again to keep Iraq free of Saddam Hussein.

    Oh, hang on.  Wrong man. Not curvy-tongued Blair but Curveball.

    Curveball can’t be to blame for anything, let’s be honest. He’s not British. Not even American. Not even Israeli.

    So he can’t be a “war criminal”.

    Phew! Silly me. Back to where we were.

    This man’s input, his “intelligence” on WMD, his lies, his wish to be rid of Saddam in Iraq are not and were not the ONLY reasons that the Iraq war was launched.

    Unfortunately, for the simple-minded, there were more reasons than Curveball’s lies.

    John Rentoul’s commenters are having some fun here, after the Curveball news – “Iraq war was built on lies. But not Tony Blair’s”.

    As is their wont the ‘anti-Blair’ commenters fail to address the gist of Rentoul’s article: that the Daily MaUL’s Stephen Glover’s headline – “So it WAS all based on a lie.  But don’t hold your breath waiting for Blair to be held to account over Iraq” – was a touch off the main point following Curveball’s self-outing.

    The whole Mail article and particularly the headline was simply re-stating Glover’s anti-Blair/anti-Iraq war position.  Like him, Rentoul’s anti-gang are too busy repeating what THEY ALL KNOW – that Blair lied, to take on board any relevance at all regarding the credibility or not of Curveball’s  input and his lies.

    If there had been any intention towards balanced reporting from Glover, the headline would have been:

    “So it WAS all based on a lie.  But don’t hold your breath waiting for Curveball or anyone to be held to account over Iraq”

    I am staggered by all the hate directed towards our former Prime Minister. I believe that Tony Blair made the Iraq decision in good faith and is most certainly NOT a war criminal. If anyone should be tried at the Hague it should be those in the media for totally misrepresenting the information and facts. The media are to blame for fuelling this hatred as it is purely driven by them. (UK)

    The greatest and most successful leader the Labour Party has ever had with the courage to fight the Islamist terrorists who really would like to kill us all, and you never hear a good word about him. The herd of independent minds, commentators, activists etc who have never had to make a difficult decision in their lives drown out all debate with their inane chants of war crimes and blood on his hands. Defend him at every chance. I just wish more people would do it. (Glasgow, UK)

    Blair was the greatest Labour Prime Minister. It is a disgrace that the party has turned away from his legacy. Shame on Ed Miliband and his so-called ‘new generation’.
