I Hate The War

This week came the news that Barack Obama was working to hinder England's Iraq Inquiry.  The Inquiry is tasked with finding out how England ended up in the illegal war.  That means knowing what then Prime Minister Tony Blair and US Bully Boy Bush agreed to.

As the Guardian's Richard Norton-Taylor explained to tfc0 (link is audio) about the documents Barack's insisting must not be released,  "The Chilcot Inquiry says these are crucial.  They're crucial because they're central to know what commitments [Tony] Blair, then prime minister made to the Americans about the participation in the invason of Iraq."  Asia Tribune adds, "Although the British Cabinet Office has been under fire by the public for stalling the progress of the four-year Iraq Inquiry by Sir John Chilcot, senior diplomatic sources in the US and White House indicated that it is officials in the White House and the US Department of State who have refused to sanction any declassification of highly critical pre- and post-war communications between George Bush and Tony Blair."

The laughable Nobel Peace Prize winner is preventing the people from knowing about the origins of the illegal war he claimed to be against.

That's a news story unless you're the hideous Progressive magazine, for instance. Little gated community Ruth Conniff found time to go after Sarah Palin  but ignored Iraq.  Of course the whore did.  In 2006, she bragged on KPFA airwaves of how no one she knew had gone to Iraq.  From her gated community, Iraq didn't bother her one bit.  Now the whore plays "Palin!!!!!" to distract from what Barack's doing.  And the whore gets on MSNBC for being a whore.  Ride that street corner, Ruth, The Progressive's drowning in debt and you'll go under with it.

RT: Does Washington need other countries to justify its actions? Is England just another suitable friend?

LG: What people are worried about is that there is maybe lots of evidence here for war crimes, for an agreement for a war over regime change, which of course is illegal under international law. There may be lots of other things to come up. We’ve had a number of reports over the Iraq war, none of them satisfactory. People felt that maybe Chilcot would be better because it was a much more thorough going report. Nearly 200 British soldiers died during the Iraq War, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis died, and millions of people were demonstrating. All of these people have the right to know, and it is absolutely shameful that our government and the US government are trying to prevent them from knowing. 

Think about all the money that's been wasted in donations to The Progressive, The Nation, Democracy Now! and so much more.  All that money and these same outlets can't report on this story -- refuse to.  So American audiences have to go to England's Guardian newspaper or Daily Mail, or to Russia Today or Iran's Press TV or the Asia Tribune.  Remember that when these useless US outlets next beg you for money.  Stop donating and force them to get real jobs. Of course, with their lack of ethics and lack of talent, such jobs won't be in the press but, when you think about it, they shouldn't be in the press.

It's over, I'm done writing songs about love
There's a war going on
So I'm holding my gun with a strap and a glove
And I'm writing a song about war
And it goes
Na na na na na na na
I hate the war
Na na na na na na na
I hate the war
Na na na na na na na
I hate the war
Oh oh oh oh
