A remake of the Dead Parrot Skit!....Sadly, however the dead were not parrots, but Iraqis.....about a million of them.

The thing that stood out for me, and we we have touched upon briefly elsewhere in the Chilcott Circus thread, is that the US had to have UK military involvement to invade Iraq and depose Saddam, and that without UK military support would've been unable to carry out the invasion.

That is what was in the suppressed Blair-Bush "love letters" it seems.

The true story is slowly seeping out into the public domain.

We didn't need your manpower and weaponry....no offense....we just needed the political 'cover' [partners - a coalition of the willing....humpf!]. Its so horribly sinister and cynical and the talking heads really don't care at all that all those little brown men and women and babies died and are still dying with a country in worse shape than when the 'savior' crusaders came in and pillaged.

I'm not so sure Pete. Read what Lord Boyce, Chief of the Defence Staff said to Chilcott (see the Chilcott thread):


Boyce says that he does not think the Americans would have been able to invade on 19 March 2003 without the British.

It could've just been the moral and political support, but this seems to be saying that there was a need for British military involvement to meet this specific date.

You supplied 46,000 to our 200,000. Not insignificant, but I still think more political cover than military......well, anyhow, we didn't need you for Granada!!! We're tough stuff!
