These fucking Herberts make me die.
Plonker Prescott has said that he was wrong to support the war in Iraq after admitting that the conflict “cannot be justified”… Too fucking little, too fucking late from a man who was a joke back then and is still a joke today.
Plonker knew the
war illegal invasion was wrong at the time. All the fuckwits in the Westminster puppet show did because that was the only conclusion anyone with a modicum of intelligence could conclude.
Yet, Robin Cook, the only one in the Labour Cabinet who stood up for what was right died in suspicious circumstances. In his resignation speech he stated:
“I can’t accept collective responsibility for the decision to commit Britain now to military action in Iraq without international agreement or domestic support.”
Cook’s resignation speech was the only one in the history of Parliament to have ever got a standing ovation from all parties. Meanwhile, Psycho Blair continues to maintain that the invasion was the right decision to make despite being found guilty of war crimes.
Plonker Prescott, you were insignificant then. You are insignificant now… Fuck off.
By the way. Tom Watson has fuck all to do with this article. I just wanted him to know I’m not done with him yet.
“It cannot be justified”: John Prescott admits to regrets over Iraq war ten years on
Tony Blair insisted just a few days ago Britain was right to take part in the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein
Labour legend John Prescott has said he was wrong to support war in Iraq, admitting it “cannot be justified”.
Tony Blair insisted just a few days ago Britain was right to take part in the 2003 invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein.
And Lord Prescott helped make the case for war as Mr Blair’s deputy PM at the time.
But Lord Prescott has changed his mind and said in an interview: “I go through my thoughts trying to justify it, but that’s… it cannot be justified as an intervention.”
Lord Prescott was speaking on BBC1’s This Week politics programme ahead of the 10th anniversary of the conflict on March 19.
He revealed US president George Bush persuaded him to support it by promising a peace plan for Israel and Palestine.
However, the Palestine plan “fell apart as it often does in American politics because the influence domestically is too great”, the peer said.
He added: “Tony Blair obviously said to himself, ‘I’ve promised to do this and I’m going to do it’.”
Mr Blair said earlier this week that he had given up trying to justify the invasion of Iraq, which he admitted “remains extremely divisive and very difficult.”
But he insisted that the situation would have been much worse if the dictator had been allowed to stay, describing him as 20 times worse than Bashar Assad of Syria.
“The answer is not to say to people: I’m afraid we should have left Saddam in charge because otherwise these sectarians will come in and try and destabilise the country.
“The answer is you get rid of the oppressive dictatorship and then you have a long hard struggle to push these sectarian elements out too.”
Foreign Secretary William Hague has written to current Cabinet members urging them not to discuss the justification for the war, reinforcing agreed Government policy not to prejudice the outcome of the Chilcot inquiry into the war due later this year.
