Blair 'should be impeached over Iraq war' - Yahoo! News UK

Hey the big "I" word over here.
But is it being said out side of the land of the Yahoos?

It is great to see a top General standing up to be counted asking for Blair to be held account.

Maybe we need a military coup before we have true democracy.
Wait a minute, is that they way they are justifying the iraq invasion now?

Well, the yanks are already embedded here, threatening to shoot ius if we go near their permanent bases.

Blair 'should be impeached over Iraq war'

Tony Blair should be impeached over the Iraq war, a former top British soldier has said.

General Sir Michael Rose, who was a UN commander in Bosnia, says the Prime Minister has to be held to account.

He claims Mr Blair's actions were somewhere in between getting the politics wrong and actually acting illegally.

Certainly from a soldier's perspective there can't be any more serious decision taken by a prime minister than declaring war,' he said.

'And then to go to war on what turns out to be false grounds is something that no one should be allowed to walk away from.'

The general accepted Parliament had endorsed the war, but he said that was because the Prime Minister had stressed the weapons of mass destruction argument.

Plaid Cymru MP Adam Price has already led calls for Tony Blair to be impeached over the war in Iraq.

Mr Blair's official spokesman said: 'General Rose is entitled to his view. Equally, the Government is entitled to point out that we have had free democratic elections in Iraq for the first time in well over a generation."
