Photos That Make the Rude Pundit Want to Shove a Crumpet Up Someone's Ass:
You know, not much may come at the end of the day from the Chilcot panel's inquiry into what led Britain into the Iraq war. It may not lead to anything more than one more report saying generic "Mistakes were made" kind of bullshit. It may offer nothing more than one more ripped condom to sheath the diseased cock-politic that fucked the conscience back into the British people while infecting them. But, unlike over here in the good ol' USA, where we never look back because we don't want to see the wreckage we've left behind, at the very least, for a day, former Prime Minister Tony Blair was forced to show up and publicly explain what the fuck he did.
Of course, Blair didn't back down, didn't offer any mea culpas, and clung so tightly to George W. Bush's ballsack that he must never be able to get the smell of sweaty Texas taint off his skin. "The decision I took – and frankly would take again – was if there was any possibility that he could develop weapons of mass destruction we should stop him. That was my view then and that is my view now," he said of Saddamn Hussein. And he offered a telling comparison that indicates, without saying so, how shit was gonna play out no matter what. Blair said that there was really no difference wanting regime change in Iraq and wanting it to disarm, that "It's more a different way of expressing the same proposition."
You got that? Disarmament? No WMDs? Didn't matter. What it really was about was getting rid of Saddam Hussein, no matter the cost in lives and money.
There's protests going on outside the inquiry and angry families of dead soldiers thinking that Blair is a smirking fuck. Whatever may come of the inquiry, at a minimum, in England they have the guts to look back and try to make sense of what they did. They at least understand that their former leaders may have to live in disgrace.
