War Criminal and Traitor Tony Blair: Iraq invasion didnt cause current crisis
It is often said that the funniest people are those who don’t know they are funny. Therefore if there was an award for funniest man in the world, Tony Blair would surely be a contender because the more seriously he takes himself the more idiotically surreal his comedy becomes.
Having continued to insist that there were Weapons Of Mass Destriction in Iraq in 2001 as justification for the British and American invasion, Blair is now trying to say that short war and the long occupation which followed it had nothing to do with the social and political meltdown of Iraq since Obama’s premature withdrawal of American troops in 2011.
Blair seems to think his illegal war in Iraq brought great benefits to that country which is also laughable. Still, funny is largely a matter of personal opinion and I doubt the people of Iraq, Afghantistan, The balkans or sierra Leone would agree with my view that Tony Blair is nearly as funny as Tommy Cooper.
nothing lasts forever of course and even before he has been crowned funniest man in the world, blair is facing serious challenges from barack Obama and David Cameron who, in their knockabout, slapstick way are trying to tell us the FUKUS axis backed coup in Ukraine has been an enormous victory for freedom and democracy and stories of conflict, atrocities and mass killings are just propaganda being put out by the Russian government.
That again is mostly a matter of opinion:
Ukrainian civil war looms as 49 die in plane shot down by rebels
While the world’s short attention span may have been diverted to Iraq where the ISIS insurgents are now knocking on Baghdad’s door, and with it – Iraq’s vast southern oil fields and infrastructure (which if taken offline would send oil up to $200 according to T. Boone Pickens). the “out of sight, out of mind” conflict in Ukraine, which the western media dropped covering like a hot potato some time in early May for reasons not entirely known, continues to escalate and where the latest outbreak of violence took place overnight when a Ukraine military transport Il-76 was allegedly shot down by separatists in the city of Lugansk as it was about to land.
As a result of the crash all 49 Ukrainian service personnel on board were killed. The death toll would be the biggest suffered by government forces in a single incident since Ukraines government launched a military operation against pro-Russian separatists in the east. Continue reading
White phosphorus’ reports: Ukraine military ‘dropped incendiary bombs’ on Slavyansk
Residents of Slavyansk and its suburbs were awoken overnight on Thursday by what they say were incendiary bombs that were dropped on their city by Kievs military. Witnesses and local media reports suggested that the bombs might be phosphorous.
Much of the village of Semyonovka, located in the Slavyansk suburbs, was set ablaze. Local residents told RT that the ground didn’t stop burning for some time.
We all saw what happened here yesterday. They used rocket launchers as well as incendiary bombs against us. The ground was on fire. How can the ground burn by itself. It burned for about forty minutes, resident Roman Litvinov told RT over the phone. Continue reading
While none of these reports come from what we would think of as totally reliable sources (but what is a totally reliable source in a world of spin and deception?) we do think they serve to illustrate why The Boggart Blog bookie is refusing to take bets on Barack Obama being proclaimed the funniest man in the world:
Obama to Tumblr users: “… the world has never been less violent or more tolerant than it is right now.”
