The Kelly Suicide and Blair's Ashen Face
"Pride goeth before a fall." That's the age-old maxim.
Now what's that again about what history will forgive, Tony? Or are you worried more now about what God will forgive?
I suppose most people would refuse to answer when a reporter asks if they have "blood on their hands" as Tony Blair did today, apparently distraught over the now-"confirmed" suicide of Dr. David Kelly
, which seems without a doubt to have been a response to being chosen as the government's fall guy for the Niger uranium scandal and as an example of what will happen to any Blair official who talks to the BBC. The government quite clearly outed
him last week and he appears to have said, "Fuck this." Now there's certainly blood on his
hands, but Blair's are dripping with his and hundreds, even thousands of others. And he and Bush dipped their hands in the same bowl. Iraqi civilians, US and UK soldiers, officials...the Iraq debacle is a monster always hungry for more flesh.
How many bodies yet to come will it take before justice is done? Well, soldiers
continue to die for nothing in the abbatoir Iraq has become, and now the U.S. has decided they need the U.N.'s help after all.
Oh, pull the other one, George. I thought you said they were an ineffective debating society. And you said the U.S. did not need the world's help. Well, now it's time to choke down your words.
Had enough yet, folks? Well, some Americans leaving for Canada
