BLAIR AND THE CONSPIRACY OF SILENCE
Posted by Dr. Mahathir Mohamad at August 1, 2008 2:22 PM
I feel sad that after a very well attended Press Conference (see picture) chaired by me as Chairman of the Kuala Lumpur Perdana Global Peace Organisation to condemn the visit of the war criminal Tony Blair, almost nothing has appeared in the print and electronic media in this country.
It looks as if Malaysia supports the criminal action of this former British Prime Minister who lied to his Parliament, to the British people and the world that Iraq had Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) which could hit Britain in a matter of minutes.
On the basis of this lie he joined George Bush of the United States to launch a massive war against Iraq, killing hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqis and destroying their cities, the electricity and water supply.
When no WMDs were found in Iraq, this war criminal claimed that he and Bush unleashed their killers against Iraq to rid it of (President) Saddam Hussein and to make Iraq and all the countries in West Asia democratic.
Saddam has been caught together with his Cabinet members and hanged after trial by a kangaroo court.
But the killings in Iraq has not stopped. It is five years plus and the Iraqi people, from babies to old people, the healthy and the sick, are being killed or savagely wounded every day.
