As an Iraqi exile living in the UK for 30 years, I always had a hope that one day Iraq will one day get rid of the dictatorship of Saddam Hussein. However, during the few months before the “liberation” of Iraq, I had a gut feeling that things are not right; the right wing media beating their chest up , the sloppy arguments for the war by Tony Blair and his cronies, the ridiculous scenarios about chemical and biological weapons and all the lies that followed. No man with a bit of intelligence and some common sense wouldn’t have noticed that a country which has been weakened by sanctions and two wars would has no chance of putting up with the arsenal of the USA, the biggest military power. The writing was on the wall. Destruction, devastation and destitute for a whole nation. The over a million I joined in the demonstration on 15 February were all right. Blair and his associates were legally wrong and should face justice.
