Many believe Tony Blair should be charged for taking the UK to war in Iraq. Former Labour MP George Galloway has made a career out of challenging Blair: in this film he deftly makes his case. Cosying up to dictators and media-moguls, Blair has made a string of questionable friends in high places. In the process, he has also made a personal fortune.
There was no doubt in my mind that both Blair and Bush are war criminal and benefitted personally and politically at the outset of the Iraq war. This documentary , while focused on Blair's greed and lack of integrity and good ethics, it highlighted what I have always thought about this man. What a tragedy for humanity, especially, the Iraqi People who paid a high price in the most horrifying way for greed and lies. What a tragedy!!!
Nice to see 2 sides of a picture. I had no idea Blair was this bad, but it did explain somethings that never made sense before and do now. Put in true George Galloway style, got to love those Scots. Thanks George....
Powerful documentary charging former British PM Tony Blair with blatant corruption involving millions, tens of millions, who knows how many millions of pounds. If true, it demonstrates that a constitutional monarchy, which some people wish we had, offers no protections against corrupt elected officials. The film also raises the question of what inspires a person to so worship money that he can never have enough of it, a question which might well be put to some of our leaders. The one criticism I would make of this film, which isn’t really a criticism but rather an observation, is that an hour into it I felt surfeited with horrors, from the bombing of Kosovo, to the bombing and invasion of Afghanistan, to the bombing, invasion and tortures in Iraq, to . . . Basta! Worth watching but, in the end, really depressing.
