In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

"People “hate” Tony Blair over the 2003 invasion of Iraq"

Unlike America and the bushco group, inside and around the Government, including those in Congress! They were quickly forgivin and apparently held to the status of elder statesmen, like those paying Blair's extreme compensation as he travels around and is given air time also, and women as well as experts on Foreign Policy and more, to be listened to for as long as they're around and free for the FOX speak!

None of it happened under their reign, even Democrats go that line, before and since it's all about Obama and his Administration!!

At least the Brits sought some Accountability, final public report on still not released, quickly run from here in the States! And we left everything done during on the table with much still being done so those that ran from can lay blame away from the perpetrators of like those who supported are free to attack the present in other ways!!

Public will never get over Tony Blair and Iraq war, says David Blunkett
12 October 2014 - People “hate” Tony Blair over the 2003 invasion of Iraq and “sneer” at the former Prime Minister partly because of the money he has made since leaving office, former Home Secretary David Blunkett has said.

Mr Blunkett, who was a leading member of Mr Blair’s Cabinet, doubted that the public would “ever get over Iraq” and were not prepared to accept that the Government had simply made mistakes. He admitted the administration of Iraq after Saddam Hussein’s forces were defeated had been “a disaster”.

The 67-year-old, who is due to stand down as an MP at the General Election next year, said he would not be “making the millions Tony has made”, but said he hoped he would show the kind of “vigour” that Mr Blair’s successor in Number 10, Gordon Brown, displayed during the debate over Scottish independence.

Mr Blunkett insisted he was “one of the few” that defends Mr Blair, but doubted his former colleague would be forgiven by the court of public opinion.

“I don’t think people will ever get over Iraq,” he told The Guardian. “It is not that they say Tony made a mistake. They hate him for it. read more>>>

Released will carry private communications between GWBush and TBlair, like this already released: TB said there was a danger the Tories would see this as their chance to get rid of him … Bush said they would make it clear to the Tories that if they moved to get rid of TB "we will get rid of them".

* * * Iraq War Promoted Terrorism Rather Than Reducing It * * *

24 April 2014 - Britain’s involvement in the Iraq War promoted terrorism rather than reducing it and was a “strategic failure”, according to a major new report which estimated the cost of all UK conflicts since the end of the Cold War.
The Royal United Services Institute said the UK could face a bill of nearly £65bn, once the cost of long-term care for injured veterans was factored in, with most of the money was spent on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The study, called Wars in Peace, said both conflicts were largely “strategic failures” for the UK, The Guardian reported."

Facts: Matthew Hoh {former Marine and foreign service officer in Afghanistan}: "We spend a trillion dollars a year on national security in this country."
"And when you add up to the Department of Defense, Department of State, CIA, Veterans Affairs, interest on debt, the number that strikes me the most about how much we're committed financially to these wars and to our current policies is we have spent $250 billion already just on interest payments on the debt we've incurred for the Iraq and Afghan wars." 26 September 2014

Bob Herbert "Losing Our Way" : "And then the staggering costs of these wars, which are borne by the taxpayers. I mean, one of the things that was insane was that, as we're at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Bush administration cut taxes. This has never been done in American history. The idea of cutting taxes while you're going to war is just crazy. I mean, it's madness." Bill 'Moyers and Company': Restoring an America That Has Lost its Way 10 Oct. 2014
