UK KIA's Family To Blair - Don't Even THINK Of Attending Memorial Service
Blair 'not welcome' at war service
By Severin Carell
05 October 2003
The Independent

"The families of British soldiers killed in Iraq have fiercely criticised Tony Blair's decision to attend a remembrance service for Britain's war dead.

One grieving relative - the father of the helicopter pilot Philip Green killed in a crash - said the Prime Minister should stay away from the service at St. Paul's Cathedral on Friday.

EDIT

Lianne Seymour, Commando Seymour's widow, from Poole, Dorset, said Mr. Blair should only attend St. Paul's if he felt 'true remorse' about the deaths of British troops. She was furious that the Prime Minister had insisted last week that he did not regret the war.

EDIT

Mr. Green admitted he felt highly emotional about Mr Blair's presence at the service. 'I think he's a war criminal, it's as simple as that. The man, without any consideration to the Labour parliamentary party, elected to go to war with his scabby little friend in Texas, and killed 51 of our men unnecessarily,' he said. 'If I have a chance to meet him on Friday, I will tell him to his face.'"

1. Bush & Blair are both War Criminals
Bush & Blair STARTED this illegal Iraq.



quote

"We must make clear to the Germans that the wrong for which
their fallen leaders are on trial is not that they lost the
war, but that they started it. And we must not allow
ourselves to be drawn into a trial of the causes of the war,
for our position is that no grievances or policies will
justify resort to aggressive war. It is utterly renounced
and condemned as an instrument of policy."

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert L. Jackson
Chief U.S. Prosecutor
at the Nuremberg Tribunals
