No Evidence Of WMDs? Blair Still Would Have Invaded

Posted by Anthony on December 12, 2009

Tony Blair, in an interview by the BBC coming out tomorrow, states that he would have invaded Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein even if there was no evidence of WMDs.

“I would still have thought it right to remove him. I mean obviously you would have had to use and deploy different arguments, about the nature of the threat.”

Nothing about the invasion was illegal. It was wrong, and it was drummed up by the neocons who were in office. But it was not illegal.

Did Saddam Hussein need to be removed and killed? Absolutely. He ran a terror regime; his sons raped newlyweds and punished failing athletes.

Britain is set to do a major investigation next year into its involvement in the Iraq War. One can only hope it is not going to be all about how the invasion was illegal, which garners no progress and comes away with nothing new learned.
