ic Teesside - War crime threat to Blair
The mother of a North soldier who died in the Gulf has said that Tony Blair should be prosecuted as a war criminal if no weapons of mass destruction are found in Iraq.
Ann Nichol lost her Royal Marine son John Cecil, 36, in the Iraq war when the Sea Knight helicopter he was travelling in crashed in Kuwait in the first days of the conflict.
Now she has reacted angrily to the admission by US Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that weapons of mass destruction - WMD - may never be found in Iraq. Before the war Mr Blair and President Bush justified the toppling of Saddam by claiming he had biological and chemical weapons.
Ann said: "If this turns out to be a lie then Tony Blair should resign. He should also be prosecuted under international law as a war criminal.
"If they don't find any weapons of mass destruction then this war has been based on a pack of lies and they have put all of our sons and daughters lives on the line for a lie."
And to think...he was such a swell guy once...
Tony! If you're listening...go back to your roots. Read Eckhart.
You are choking on the Mammon that you are trying to gobble down, and in the process, you are losing your spirit. Literally. Eckhart warned what you would give up in your pursuit of material things.
You are losing the gift.
Change. Change. Change.
