“Wall of sound” confronts Blair at Westminster Cathedral

I used to walk along the aisles of the magnificent Westminster Cathedral, the “mother church” of the Catholic community in the UK, in awe of its unusual Byzantine style, its heavenly choirs and the majestic organ music that reverberated across its cavernous interior. The Cathedral has been described as “a very special place of prayer, a refuge from the busy city, a space to find one’s own thoughts.”

But last night how the Cathedral must have groaned and sighed as Tony Blair, the war criminal, took to the pulpit to preach on “Faith and Globalisation”. The former British premier converted to Catholicism last year but has so far not publicly apologised for the invasion of Iraq despite huge anti-war demonstrations and opposition from Pope John Paul II in 2003. More than a million Iraqis have died since the invasion.

As for other casualties, The Canadian reports:

While large U.S. media organizations like CNN, NBC, ABC, FOX and the New York Times document that about 4,000 US military personnel have lost their life, U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs data documents a death toll of over 74,000 U.S. military personnel from Iraq Wars, as of May 2007. Award-winning investigative journalist Dahr Jamail documents that the U.S. political-military-industrial complex is apparently pursuing a “divide and rule” strategy by actually arming the same groups, that are labelled as “extremists” or “terrorists” against a stated objective of “stability” and “peace” in Iraq.

Anti-war protesters, including Catholics, turned up outside the Cathedral yesterday to let Blair know exactly how they felt.

Dear Anil I do not know how long the American People can tolerate the Idiot Bush. So far 1,000,000 Iraqis (Muslims) have been murdered by the Idiot. He is blood thirsty. The American situation currently is due to his stupid war with Iraq and he has murdered Saddam Husain. Bush should be brought for trial for the murder of Saddam. Due to American economic sitation, other countries are also affected. Well – everywhere the same – we had our own dictator – who has retired but still poking his nose in the country’s politics. Actually, in order to hide his… Read more »

Curveball was the pseudonym given by the Central Intelligence Agency to Rafid Ahmed Alwan (Arabic: رافد أحمد علوان‎), an Iraqi citizen who defected from Iraq in 1999, claiming that he had worked as a chemical engineer at a plant that manufactured mobile biological weapon laboratories as part of an Iraqi weapons of mass destruction program.[1] Alwan’s allegations were subsequently shown to be false by the Iraq Survey Group’s final report published in 2004. [ ] Apparently because the Iraqi informant disliked Americans,[4] Germany’s intelligence service (BND) classified him as a “blue” source, meaning the Germans would not permit U.S. access… Read more »
