Straw & Goldsmith: "la la laaaaa - we're not listening ! !"


A senior law lord who's just retired has decided now, after the deaths of a million Iraqis and over a hundred UK servicemen and women, to voice his opinion that it was illegal. Lord Goldmsith and Jack Straw, predictably, denied any wrongdoing.

"Goldsmith added that Tony Blair had told him it was his "unequivocal view" that Iraq was in breach of its UN obligations to give up weapons of mass destruction."

So that's alright then, because Tony is George and Jesus's best buddy and he wouldn't tell you something like that unless he had utterly incontrovertible evidence that it was the case. Would he?

Straw said:

"However controversial the view that military action was justified in international law it was our attorney general's view that it was lawful and that view was widely shared across the world."

So widely shared that the global forum for diplomacy rejected it out of hand and a grand total of five countries, including the primary aggressor, out of a total of 196 contributed material support. Yeah, Jack. Rally widely shared.
