‘Iraq War Unlawful’: All 27 UK Foreign Affairs Lawyers, 2003. ‘Official Report Delayed Again’: UK Govt Today

The UK Cameron government is blocking publication of their “official” report on Iraq war until perhaps 2014 or later, according to the UK’s most popular newspaper website.

Perhaps this delay is in part because the Blair government was advised before the war by all 27 attorneys in their Foreign Affairs Office that war on Iraq was unlawful. That would mean armed attack on Iraq would be an unlawful War of Aggression, with identical criminal implication on US armed attack on Iraq.

Unlawful war requires US military to refuse all war orders and arrest those who issue them (more documentation here).

Public understanding that current wars “on terror” are not even close to lawful would end these wars. War law forbids all armed attack unless under attack by another nation’s government.

The October 2002 US National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) concluded that Iraq was not a threat and yet the White House reported the exact opposite. They lied and an unjustified and illegal war was launched.  The UK government was party to this act of aggression. War Crimes trials are long over due:

Please note this US hearing into Bush Administration malfeasance was sunk by the Democrats. No further action was taken even though it was the duty of elected representative to do so. Is not the oath to protect the Constitution from threats foreign and domestic?
