Where are the defenders of the Iraq War now?

I remember those NZers who screamed that we should invade Iraq, I remember the lies spun to justify the unjustifiable. They tend to move on to Climate Denial now as their issue of the day, but I remember wading through the crap used to explain why the world needed to invade Iraq, they are quiet now as the level of out right deception is explored in the latest inquiry into the reasons why Britain went to war…

Blair's view on Iraq 'tightened' after Bush meeting
Tony Blair's view on regime change in Iraq "tightened" after a private meeting with President Bush in 2002, the UK's former US ambassador has said. Sir Christopher Meyer said no officials were at the Bush family ranch talks - but the next day Mr Blair mentioned regime change for the first time. The ex-diplomat also said officials had been left "scrabbling" for evidence of WMD as US troops prepared for invasion.

…there can be no enjoyment in pointing out how wrong the pro-war lobby got it when we consider the destruction the Iraqi people have had to endure from this lie. Iraq is another sad reminder that we are forever doomed to repeat the mistakes of the past.

I have no problem with the dscision to invade Iraq.

However the conduct of the war after it was invaded is a completely different matter.

LMAO - of course you didn't Gosman, of course you didn't. I'll chalk that up as another reason to tune you out.

Yeah and all that bullshit that the right spun about the 'greater good'! Aha - ok - so where's the good now?
America is great at starting wars (top marks for it) but has no idea how to end them. Vietnam anyone? Afghanistan? Hmm ... Pakistan next?

I am now personally ashamed that I supported the decision to invade iraq. If there was any justice Tony Blair would be sat in a holding cell at the hague. Never again will I beleive anything that labour UK say.

Ask the kurds If their autonomy and relative prosperity was worth the war. Ask the women gang raped by Saddam's forces if a family memember opposed Baathist policy.On balance the war my have been 'wrong' tactically but not morally. What pisses me off about the anti Iraq war left is that they are agaisnt ALL war. If they had their way in 1939-45 we'd all be speaking japanese
