El-Erian on the Iraqi invasion & ElBaradei
19 days after the declaration of war and the start of the invasion and the hotting up of the war, Baghdad fell under the tank tracks of America and its allies.
The war was born out of a grand lie spread by the mendacious, immoral media which claimed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and that it had connections with Al-Qaeda.
The results of the war were disastrous everywhere, in Iraq, in the Gulf, in the Arab world, in Europe, in America and internationally.
The people punished the politicians who paved the way for and started the war and brazenly lied to the public. Only Colin Powell has apologised. Of this group, Berlusconi protected by his billions in Italy remains, as does Blair with his smooth tongue.
One day, if there is global reform, they might stand before the International Criminal Court so that it has more credibility. With them might stand those who concealed the outrageous suggestion that Iraq was capable of possessing weapons of mass destruction without speaking a word that could have exculpated Iraq and consequently justified the invasion. This was the International Atomic Agency and its men, at the head of which was its head who for 12 years represented America and Europe and who was not supported or nominated by his country Egypt: Dr. Mohamed El Baradei.
These individuals must be tried domestically and internationally.
