May 19, 2014 - London’s Mayor Boris Johnson has implied that he was “duped” by Tony Blair into supporting the war in Iraq, suggesting that the former British prime minister should be tried for war crimes.
During an appearance on LBC radio last week, Johnson appeared to endorse the idea that the former prime minister should be tried as a war criminal.
Johnson said, however, that it would be difficult to secure a conviction against Blair because he is a very “adept and agile” lawyer, who would use his legal skills to avoid prosecution.
On the claims that the regime of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein possessed WMDs, Johnson said, “The more I listened to the debate back in 2003, I started to think it probably was a load of nonsense.”
Johnson was among the 244 labour MPs who gave their vote to start the war. read more>>>
