It Will Never Happen Here

Go here to watch the live BBC broadcast of Tony Blair's testimony before the government commission investigating the Iraq War.

Meanwhile in this country, the right is very busy airbrushing the last 8 years into oblivion. The always compliant media takes us all on another swim in the river Lethe.

In this country spectacular incompetence, arrogance, and ignorance that costs thousands of lives and billions of dollars doesn't get investigated or called to account about anything. Instead, it gets promotions, book deals, huge lecture fees, and the Medal of Freedom.

As the inscription over the west door of medieval churches once said , Cave Dominus Videt.

I was watching the Guardian's live feed of Blair's testimony at the Chilcott inquiry. Had to turn it off, it made me sick.
The only time I want to "hear" Blair again is when he'll be in the dock at The Hague! Same goes for Bush... and Obama, too, if he continues his warmongering.

I heard snippets of this on NPR. His logic is way too personal and so wrong! He, as many leaders have done took the personal, truth as the actual truth.

What Blair did at the start of this un-nescesarry war will haunt his party for very long...
