Everything Exposed: Giving War A Chance

The final element of the puzzle is in place. From the records of a British government meeting in July 2002, leaked to The Sunday Times, we learn:

“If the political context were right, people would support regime change,” said Blair. He added that the key issues were “whether the military plan worked and whether we had the political strategy to give the military plan space to work”.
That is, we now have proof that all the British diplomatic efforts were aimed at giving war a chance.

In other words, there never was a honest effort to find the truth about WMD. And beyond the original sin of starting an illegal war I also note: given that by July everything was set for war, the lack of post-war planning now looks an even graver crime of omission than before.
