The Iraq war is totally discredited (Iraqi WMDs anyone?) . Tony Blair, their great idol, has been called to appear before the Chilcot Inquiry for a second time. Iran is refusing to kowtow to the neo-con induced international bullying, with the western public failing to buy the ludicrous line that the Islamic Republic- with its non-existent nuclear weapons- poses a threat to us all.
And a war that the neocons and liberal interventionists thought they had successfully got labelled for posterity as a ‘good war’ is coming under increasing scrutiny. As I’ve said before, the more the Iraq war is discredited, the more it is important for the neo-cons and liberal interventionists to push the line that the attack on Yugoslavia in 1999 was a ‘humanitarian’ good guys v bad guys intervention.
But as this BBC report shows, that is proving increasingly difficult, in the light of recent revelations.
As long-standing readers will know, I’ve been a consistent opponent of the 1999 NATO aggression against Federal Yugoslavia- and it’s pleasing that after all this time, the line I took- that the intervention was far from humanitarian- has, despite all the neo-con propaganda, now become widely accepted.
The game’s up for the serial warmongers- and all that is left for us to do now is to make sure they answer for the lies they told and their crimes against peace.
