    You are confusing the first and second gulf wars.

    The second had fudged up reasoning and even more fudged up results.

    You're right. Same attitude from them over a different subject though.

    1st time they were repeatedly told to withdraw troops and didn't. When US troops pushed up to the border they did. That cannot go on indefinitely and eventually had to end in war.

    2nd time weapons inspectors were repeatedly blocked and delayed, leaving time to move weapons and clear up sites. Same pattern of events - only changing when absolutely forced to. Sending in troops was inevitable.

    From memory, the Iraqis were not significantly delaying any inspections. The complaint was that they were not telling the west (US and their poodle Blair) where the Wmds were... their response to this was there was not any... which proved to be true.

    Sadam was a C unt. What he done to the iraqi Kurds was enough to have him killed.. and that should have been the time to do it. but the second Gulf war was a travesty that eventually lead to the mess we have today and will have for a long time in the future.

    Two different Iraq wars. Yes, we've used them twice. Along with others in the Middle East.

    You raised the first Iraq war because you got confused. I am not about to defend Iraq invading Kuwait, although it does all boil down to billions borrowed fighting the Iran-Iraq war. Still, no excuses.

    The second time? No they weren't, gonad*s, the inspectors were given access and told there were no WMDs. Because there weren't.Despite the likes of Scott Ritter saying it as it was at the time, it took over a decade before the likes of BLIAR would concede that there was no evidence of WMDs and thus it was a sham. Look, if you want to to get into modern Middle Eastern history, I'm here all day.

    Needless to say, it was not MY fudging fault that tens of thousands died in Iraq because some rich and powerful people with a fat neocon agenda decided to invent a reason to line their pockets for generations.

    This. Of course he was the west's c unt for a while, our pet c unt. Then we ditched him. But agreed.

    How would you go about making sure that every week, a crowd of 60,000 are all NOT going to spout anything offensive or racist?

    I distinctly remember a lot of delays. The message from the inspectors was that they hadn't found anything but we're being delayed long enough that sites could have been cleared out.

    The inspectors weren't only there for WMDs. There were also restrictions on propulsion tech, launch sites, various banned forms of arms etc.

    I don't believe there were any WMDs (as the term has come to mean here - nerve agents, nuclear, etc). I do believe that Iraq were still developing banned weapons as per 1441:
    https://www.un.org/Depts/unmovic/do...FjAAegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw2P6SuY9LxJvacBRyyeRtE7

    The WMD stuff was flimflam, we all know that. I don't know why Blair thought there was a need to spin that the way he did.

    But let's not pretend Iraq was being compliant, because it wasn't. It was continually frustrating the efforts of weapons inspectors at every opportunity.

    You do what all clubs do. If you fail you get banned or the fans do.

    The rioters are not behaving, they are inconveniencing proper people, therefore the protesters should no longer have the right to protest.

    I could not disagree more. Your reasoning equates to that of dictators and autocrats.

    With regards to Iraq, if you'd like we can spend more time picking apart your feeble "reasoning" behind the events which occurred.

    If you're able to show that Iraq was compliant with inspections (something the UN disagrees with) then please do.

    Approx 900 inspections occurred at what, 350-400 sites? Nothing found. The fact that they were not as polite as we wanted when it came to arms is neither here or there. Inspections were allowed, things were not found, information was squeezed. Try not to rewrite too much here...

    See the post above.

    Of more interest to me is to ask whether you are now going to try and justify the Iraq War? Can we add that to your "any aggro = no protest" and "if a protest inconveniences my elevenses then ban it" stances?

    I try!
    But it sounds false, a bit like he's trying to do a Katie Hopkins.

    From 1441 as linked above - it's on the first page, you don't have to work all that hard to find it....

    Going to now justify? I have always said it was just. The reasoning given to the public was flimflam but that's Blair and his spin team for you.

    And yes, no protest should be allowed to inconvenience me. They should especially be banned from London - the traffic they cause is horrendous.
