Bush and Blair - Some More Secrets, Leaks and Lies ...

Since it's Sunday, selecting the snapshot shown above seemed sort of a sensible way to start today's Blog.

So smile a while now if you want -- for what follows is far from funny.

And while there can't be many left among us, who haven't yet found out for themselves that the holier-than-thou, wolves-in-sheep's clothing, shown above, are among the most hateful, hypocrites [masquerading as freedom loving and freedom spreading leaders] ever inflicted upon this earth's inhabitants --- even now, the more we learn, the worse it gets.

Because, believe it or believe it not -- yet another top-secret, Downing Street memo has turned up.

Yep. Really.

This U.K. Independent header from today's edition isn't just a hook to grab your attention -- it's a hook and a bloody half.

See for yourself.

Bush to Blair: First Iraq, then Saudi

By Marie Woolf, Political Editor

Published: 16 October 2005

Maybe you thought, as did so many others, that it was just Iraq and Iran set in the sights.

And, maybe you thought the Saudi Arabian and Pakistani governments were actually included in the [supposedly] long list of the Bush-Blair, coalition-of-the-willing's pals, eh?

Ha. So did the 'suckers' themselves.

Silly, Billies.

George Bush told the Prime Minister two months before the invasion of Iraq that Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran and North Korea may also be dealt with over weapons of mass destruction, a top secret Downing Street memo shows.

The US President told Tony Blair, in a secret telephone conversation in January 2003 that he "wanted to go beyond Iraq".

He implied that the military action against Saddam Hussein was only a first step in the battle against WMD proliferation in a series of countries.
What's more, Tony was told:

Mr Bush said he "wanted to go beyond Iraq ...
Oh what a tangled web we weave -- eh?

Trust us -- we're the democracy spreading, democratically elected, Christian charitable, leaders of the civilised free world -- eh?

Why .... erm .... the 'good guys' like us .... I mean ..... well .... we wouldn't lie .... now would we?

The confidential memo recording the President's explosive remarks was written by Michael Rycroft, then the Prime Minister's private secretary and foreign policy adviser.

He sent the two-page letter recording the conversation between the two leaders on 30 January 2003 to Simon McDonald, who was then private secretary to Jack Straw, the Foreign Secretary.

Mr Rycroft said it "must only be shown to those with a real need to know ".
Oh really, Mr Rycroft ? You rancid lying rat.

Talk about stating the sodding obvious. Talk about unforgivable, underhanded understatement.

In fact, talk about a lying load of bomb-happy, shooting and looting, blood thirsty, murdering megalomaniacs.

Talk about George and Tony being the terrible twins.

And talk about a couple of blood brothers - better still - talk about brothers-in-blood ; blood by the stinking swimming-pool-full.

Eh ?

They should both suffocate in the stuff -- shoulder to shoulder -- and sickeningly slowly.

Okay. Take a rest from the rant and read on.

"If this letter accurately reflects the conversation between the President and the Prime Minister it will cause consternation, particularly in Saudi Arabia.

American policy in the Middle East for decades has been based on support for Israel and an alliance with Saudi Arabia," he said.

"If this was more than loose talk and represented a genuine policy intention it constitutes a radical change in American foreign policy."

Everyone (almost) does know they're liars and worse. Problem is, they know we know, but they don't give a damn because they know we won't do anything about it.

We're being paid back for being cowards .... and I include myself, I'm ashamed to admit

The problem is that we CAN'T do anything about it because the opposition parties in both the US and UK don't offer us any significant alternatives to the Bush/Blair status quo.

Suffice to say the US press is strangely silent on this 'new' leak!

The US press is strangely silent on a lot of things initially. It takes a while for boardrooms full of stuffed shirts to reach a decision on what information to present and how to present it so as to further the cause of their stock portfolios.

Daliwood over at Elaine's blog found this item about a Brit who's decided to play hardball with the Powers That Be in re: Iraq.

This Iraq veteran, a medical doctor, is refusing to serve another tour in Iraq because, as he read Lord Goldsmith's legal guidance, the entire war is illegal per se. And though that's his defense (he's facing a court martial), who knows what balls this will start rolling!

I rather doubt that this'll get much press in the States, either.

[sorry for the 2 hard returns above, trying hard *Not* to wreck the comments margins]

This is straight from the neocon playbook. Iraq was to be the "tactical pivot", Saudi Arabia was to be the "strategic pivot", with Egypt the "prize". They want "regime change" all over the Middle East. Bush is not as "innocent" of all this as he might appear.

Thanks again for so many valuable contributions here, everyone.

While I've been doing my best to get an Old Brit blog edition out as often as possible - I have been remiss in responding lately.

Don't ask. But, boring but pressing, r/l pressures, is my 'defence plea'.

I hope I can put up the 'business as usual' sign, later today or tomorrow.

Apparently Mr. Bush resumed his drinking / drunken behaviour and stinking / shrunken thought processes earlier than recently speculated. What monsters at the wheel of state !

Well now, if the Bush Family are pals with the Saud Family (and they are), how can this scenerio be true? I guess it can be if the Saud family is going to quit the ME and just live in Switzerland.

Somehow, I don't think that's likely.

The goal is probably not to invade SA. They will just continue to solidify their close relationship.

Eqypt of course is another story. Controlling the Suez has always been important.

And Iran is still there. The Persian Gulf looks like the vulnerable spot. I can imagine the neocon desire to control one or the other (Persian Gulf or Suez).

In the meantime the U.S. has to leave Iraq or every American there will be slaughtered. We have no control outside of Baghdad itself and the Iraqi Forces are strengthening daily.

Agreed re: Saudi, Suez and Egypt. I still say Syria's set to be sorted though - one way or another and they're an easy 'hit'.

The Generals told the Rummy mob from the start that they couldn't possibly control a country as large as Iraq with the number of troops provided - and how right they were. Iran would be an even bigger headache. I think it really would take nukes to 'win' there - what ever one defines 'win' as.

This time they've broken 'it' so good that they haven't a clue as to how to fix it - let alone 'maintain' it.

Yep -- Syria is gonna go next.

It's all following that {familiar} pattern. Here's the latest.
