PM Tony Blair was one of three leaders who refused to support a cease fire during Israel’s indiscriminate war on Lebanon few weeks ago. The other two were Pres Bush and PM Olmert for obvious reasons.
PM Blair admits that he allowed British airports to be used to transport US smart bombs to Israel. And we all know where these bombs exploded.
Blair collaborated with Bush in propagating false basis for the invasion and subsequent destruction of Iraq. Casualties in Iraq amount to tens of thousands and still counting.
Blair days as PM have expired. His ministers are resigning. His people are asking him to leave.
Yesterday he was in Palestine/Israel instigating Palestinians to fight each other and supporting Olmert who has in custody (read kidnap) members of Palestinian cabinet and parliament. The same who were elected according to US and British set standards.
His visit to Lebanon today prompted the deployment of army and security around Beirut. His visit prompted a quarantine of downtown Beirut to protect him from Lebanese love and hospitality.
Lebanese have gathered on the outskirts of downtown to welcome him with banners that read: “You are NOT welcome”.
Was he invited and if so by whom?
Is he carrying a message? What is this message and what a poor choice for a messenger?
Will PM Sanyoura give him a hug and a kiss too?
Will he be offered baklava?
