War Criminal Blair Warmongers for Ground Invasion of Syria and Iraq

Furthermore, a Dutch inquiry in 2010 concluded that the Iraq war was illegal, and that it had no grounding in international law. There have been some reports in the UK press that senior officials in Blair’s government were told to burn a 13-page document from the former attorney general, Lord Goldsmith, who raised questions over the legality of the war, a fortnight before the war began.A Malaysian tribunal in 2011 which applied the Nuremberg Principles to the 2003 war found that both George Bush and Tony Blair were guilty of war crimes. A leaked memo written by former US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, also appears to show that Blair was committed to military action a year prior to the invasion.Although the death toll is widely contested and difficult to calculate, a 2013 study published in the medical journal ‘PLOS Medicine,’ concluded that approximately 500,000 people died in Iraq between 2003 and 2011, due to the war and subsequent occupation of the country.
