At the most sympathetic interpretation, the second Gulf War was initiated on poor quality intelligence, incomplete intelligence, contrary to evidence-based failure to find WMDs, an overly-keen desire to initiate war, a premature decision to initiate war, a lack of collaborative decision making and not listening to objections and alternatives.
So, it should not have been initiated.
Tony Blair is a war-monger.
I don’t think we learned anything we did not know already.
There’s also no discussion going on about alternatives – which is what I have been feeling and saying for years. Stop looking for reasons to go to war – which is what happened here – but instead look for evidence-based, properly-researched, alternatives.
