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!!

Will Tony Blair Face International Criminal Proceedings

Don't hold your breath on same as to George W Bush or Dick Cheney or any in the Bush regime. Including members of Congress and others, in and out of Government at time and since. Especially with the some 72%plus support for abandoning the missions and those sent to accomplish so extremely quickly after 9/11, blame the next Executive Admin while blanking out the criminal acts, everything else and that it even existed, supported previously. We don't do Accountability, we just use that tool in attacking and condemning others not in lockstep, especially the conservative ideologues who readily rubber stamped All policy wants!! Why they, two tax cuts huge for the wealthy and investors in, don't even demand those served Sacrifice as they demand the few who are sent into the war theaters, and their families, do!!

Alex Salmond reveals plan to put Tony Blair in the dock over Iraq War
15 May 2016 - ALEX Salmond wants Tony Blair to face international criminal proceedings over Britain's involvement in the Iraq War - if the Chilcot inquiry finds the former British Prime Minister made a secret commitment to US president George Bush to support the invasion.

The former Scottish First Minister and current SNP foreign affairs spokesman in Westminster has revealed he intends to reassemble a cross-party parliamentary group that launched a campaign to have Blair impeached ten years ago, in order to make plans for action prior to the publication of Sir John Chilcot's 2.6 million-word Iraq war inquiry report in July.

Salmond played a major role in the impeachment group, formed in the main by Welsh and Scots nationalist MPs before he became First Minister - and at a time when the SNP was a minor party in Westminster with just three MPs. Now the SNP, with 54 MPs, are the UK’s third biggest party.

Salmond - who led SNP MPs in voting against war in Iraq in the House of Commons in 2003 – said he believes the Chilcot Report will reveal that Blair committed Britain to joining the US-led military action in private conversations with Bush, possibly during a 2002 visit to the then president's ranch in Crawford, Texas.

Salmond believes that any prosecution of Blair should be carried out by the International Criminal Court - the tribunal that has jurisdiction to prosecute individuals for international crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and 'crimes of aggression'. read more>>>

Brit Report into Iraq War will Be Published in June or July 2016

* * * 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

$14 Million An Hour: War Costs Top $1.6 Trillion Since 9/11, Say Congressional Researchers
December 22 2014 - American taxpayers have shelled out roughly $1.6 trillion on war spending since 9/11, according to a new report from Congress’ nonpartisan research arm. That’s roughly $337 million a day -- or nearly a quarter million dollars a minute -- every single day for 13 years. read more>>>

Chris Hayes MSNBC: "If you can run a deficit to go to war, you can run a deficit to take care of the people who fought it" In response to Republican opposition to expanding Veterans' benefits on fiscal grounds

Neither of these recent wars have yet been paid for, let alone the results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, issues! As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded, VA budget is still borrowed thus added, problem creating, costs that shouldn't exist!
