Chilcot Report delayed (again) this time by American obstruction

US blocks publication of Chilcot’s report on how Britain went to war with Iraq 

 


George Bush with Tony Blair


 
This is outrageous. The Americans already have an totally unhealthy influence on British politics and on "our" foreign policy. To now allow a conspiracy by the pro Blair/Bush camp, still dominant in the UK and in the States, to stifle and suppress a British judicial report into how and why this country went to war in Iraq, demonstrates the extent to which our government and its duplicitous politicians are totally dominated by and subservient to America and the American State department.
The arrogance of America in its attitude towards and treatment of other nations, has for many years been breathtaking. They clearly consider themselves to have some divine right to dictate to any other nation on the planet, how to conduct their affairs in order to meet American objectives and ideals.

Where is the Chilcot Report?




Whatever the revelations Chilcot Report may contain, it is not for the Americans to determine what may or may not be part of the contents. The British government should tell the State Department to "Go to hell". However, that is unlikely to happen because of the "Special Relationship" (which actually only exists in the imagination of some politicians in any case.)
